I was asked to sign a petition today calling for the removal of journalist Liz Trotta’s job from Fox news.
First of all let me point out that this woman’s mere tone while discussing this sensitive issue was condescending enough for me to have a hard time even listening to her. News flash Liz, no one wants to be a victim and it’s unfortunate but possible to be a warrior and a victim at the same time. The absurdity in this woman insinuating that men can’t control themselves enough to not rape a woman when working side by side with them is mortifying but the fact that she also leads you to assume that she thinks women are responsible in someway for these crimes is so outlandish, and unfortunately also a common viewpoint that needs to be fixed, it makes me want to pull my hair out.
Let’s talk for a second about the feminists making the government spend money on things like sexual counselors, victims advocates and sexual response coordinators. Why she labels this extreme feminism I am not sure but she makes it seem as if being raped is not a big deal. What would the alternative be to this? Should we not have resources for healing readily available? That’s right, according to this brilliant woman, people who are fighting the war need no protection because they are “supposed to be protecting us.”
Oh yeah, and then there is the disgusting fact that these crimes have risen a shocking 64% since 2006. But please, spend less money on the prevention and treatment (not sure if I like the term treatment) of sexual crimes. I know I am not going crazy here, this whole segment is completely ridiculous, but I am interested in hearing what the community has to say about this. Please, let me know below are you viewing this the same way I am? Does everyone else hear this woman saying that women should not be in the military because they are being raped “too much”?
