We have to apologise for the truth these days

A police force has apologised for publishing leaflets linking rape to drinking alcohol after sparking accusations of ‘victim blaming’.

The flyers, which were distributed in Belfast, were discontinued several years ago, describe alcohol as “the number one date rape drug” and advise people to be wary of potential sexual assaults while drinking.

Sara Haller, who posted an image of the leaflets on Facebook, which has since been shared hundreds of times, wrote: “The tone, language and arguments all add up to ultimately saying that if you’re intoxicated you’re allowed to be raped.

“The issue with this leaflet is that the core message it gives out is that those who are raped are responsible for it.”

No Honey. The leaflet states that if you are drunk to incapacitation then you’re more likely to get raped than if you’re not. Just as you’re more likely to get mugged if you are than if you’re not.

  1. But why didn’t the chief rozzer say the same thing? Why didn’t she say :”Fuck off, you dimwit, do you really want more silly girls to be raped?”

    Of course, as an everyday matter of politics she – the hussy rather than the rozzer – perhaps does want more girls raped. Her career might thereby flourish. It’s the same reason why The Left never wants to “cure” poverty. They live off it.

  2. Feminists aren’t really interested in preventing rape – if rape didn’t exist, they’d invent it like the thoroughly unrapable Andrea Dworkin did.

    They just want to bitch and moan about men.

  3. That’s like saying that if someone puts on a dress and calls themselves a woman, they’re still a man!!

    For shame, Tim.

  4. On the other hand, does anyone think that leaflets telling young people not to drink in case they get raped are going to have any impact on youth drinking or prevent a single rape?

  5. Are there leaflets saying “Don’t get drunk because it makes you an easy target for muggers”?

    On the other hand, it might be said these leaflets prioritised female safety over male, in the sense that they are broadly gender specific and there no (?) leaflets trying to do the same favour to men.

    But the bottom line is it’s always a mistake to engage with this nonsense. It’s just whiny whingers whingeing.

    John Connor’s advice about Terminators applies to the wokies: “That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.”

    The only way to deal with the wokies is to cut their sources of funding. It would be such an easy win for the Conservatives. Cut all the lefty quangos and fake charities. But they’re lazy cowards, mostly.

    And only fair too, as that’s pretty much their game. Toby Young is at least one trying to take the fight back to them after the woke twats successfully hung him out to dry a couple of years ago.

  8. Denying that being drunk is more likely to put you at risk of rape is denying the obvious, though that never stops the SJWs – in fact they seem to see it as a challenge to do just that.

    In other news being drunk makes you more likely to fall over in the street, get shouty and punchy, get maudlin and teary, crash a car, get run over, drown in a river or the sea after a midnight swim, lose your keys, purse or wallet, spend a fortune on cabs home, buy a kebab or other unadvisable night food or simply be as sick as a dog. All of those things are uncritically treated as outcomes to be avoided and reasons for moderation in alcohol consumption.

    Of course, the true reason to deny and reject this advice is to abdicate responsibility. So that if a foolish person wakes up in the wrong bed, with the wrong person it becomes that other person’s responsibility for what happened not their own.

    Not really though. The lads who fell victim to that bloke in Manchester were generally half-cut when he persuaded them to come to his place.

  10. Advice to young lady “revellers”. (i) Don’t get legless. (ii) Have a half brick in your handbag. (Or a pair of scissors with a blade length just on the right side of the law?)

    Pendantry.
    That was Kyle Reese in the original Terminator movie, not John Connor

  12. “Hey, Jill, look at this! It says if you are drunk, you are more likely to get raped!”

    “Wow. I didn’t know that! Glad someone told me.”

    “Yeah, it’s from Captain Obvious down at the police station.”

  13. Don’t the same police frequently state that if you leave your expensive goods on display in your car then you are more likely to get your car broken into and your stuff stolen?

    Only applies to white men. Women leaving handbag, Non-white leaving anything in car is a sex/race crime if stolen. Same with open windows in house.
