Now, I recognize that he was the one who chose to commit a violent sexual act, but I also recognize that, hey, if you invite strange men into your bedroom you risk sexual violence against yourself. I was a very easy target, and I got hurt. ….
Regardless of how well I'm doing, I don't think it's unreasonable of me or "victim shaming" to accept that I had a hand in what happened to me. I don't blame myself or absolve my rapist, but I do accept personal responsibility for my own actions; when did that become a bad thing? ….

Because the only thing I can see that would have helped Anni is for her rapist not to have raped her, and the only thing I can see that would help her after the fact is a firm insistence that the only thing that would have prevented somebody being raped that night is her rapist choosing not to rape anyone.
Kind of like the Clipper chip debacle from the '90s? Good luck getting that implemented.Steersman wrote:a unique one per individual encounter held by the justice system that could be released only on court order.

Seriously, if you want less rape, focus on blaming, and defeating the perpetrators. Help fix the holes in our culture.

I think the original idea is awful, but perhaps modern tools could help catching perps.
I'm pretty sure that Steersman is not interested in a culture with "less rape" as much as he is interested in exposing all those lying bitches who falsely accuse men of raping them. Because *that's* the real problem. And if those Shroedinger's false-rape-accusers aren't willing to put an app on their phone and record all their sexual encounters, why, that's just more proof that bitches be lying.
Of course, in his final post here, Steersman also reminded us that for those times that false accusations just seem like too much of a hassle, a few particularly tricksy she-devils might figure out a hack for the app so that they can "show [the video] around to her friends for some entertainment." Because that's what bitches do.

Nice image - I'll have to keep it.
However, I suppose that is what you think qualifies as a cogent and detailed rebuttal or critique? Considering the ubiquity of surveillance cameras and other methods of reducing the incidence of other crimes such as robbery and theft, I would think that similar methods might have some utility in this case as well.
