Fresh on the heels of the guys at The Five ruining a rare instance of actual journalism by classifying a female pilot who led airstrikes against ISIS in Syria as “Boobs on the Ground,” FOX News has once again erupted in another classless attempt to debase women: blaming intoxicated females for frat rapes.
According to the fine folks at the “news” network, women need to take “personal responsibility” if they are taken advantage of while visiting a fraternity.
Recently, Forbes cut ties with former President of MIT’s Chi Phi fraternity Bill Frezza after running a quickly-deleted story, Drunk Female Guests Are the Gravest Threat to Fraternities.” The disgusting op-ed claimed that females who enjoy alcohol will “bring an entire fraternity system down” because of “false accusations of rape months after the fact triggered by regrets over a drunken hook-up, anger, or over a failed relationship.”
“We have very little control over women who walk in the door carrying enough pre-gaming booze in their bellies to render them unconscious before the night is through,” Frezza wrote in the shameful piece. “Based on new standards being promulgated on campus, all consent is null and void the minute a woman becomes intoxicated — even if she is your fiancée.” He continued, calling women who enjoy a little alcohol from time to time, “irresponsible jerks.”
On Thursday’s Outnumbered, Andrea Tantaros and Kristen Powers pushed the usual FOX “News” anti-woman agenda by saying that women should take responsibility for preventing themselves from being victims of rape, saying that Frezza’s assertion that women who imbibe alcohol would destroy the entire fraternity system is a “legitimate fear.”
“I don’t know why this writer is taking so much heat because this is actually a problem that goes on,” Tantaros said. “These girls show up at these fraternity houses. The guys, what are they supposed to do? Lock them out? ‘Hey, how are you?’ They have a couple more beers, the girl passes out… so it is a legitimate fear.”
“They walk up to guys’ rooms, they get lost in the fraternity house,” Tantaros said. “Maybe they get drunk as the night goes on playing beer pong.”
Montgomery added that fraternities should simply exclude women if they are drinking — an assertion with which co-host Sandra Smith agreed. “Don’t let them in the door in the first place,” she said. “Call somebody, get some help, don’t let them in the door.” She said that the issue may be “the fault of the fraternities that have… no policies to handle this.”
Tantaros conceded that there may be a problem with “girls getting too drunk and men taking advantage of them. However,” she asked, “where’s the personal responsibility for both sides?”
“Really! If we say personal responsibility for women, the feminist go berserk,” she added. “They’re like, ‘No, we should be able to wear whatever we want, and drink as much as we want, and pass out in the streets.’”
Or, simply not be raped at parties. Potato, potato.
“It makes the drunk girl completely clean no matter what happens — and again, we have to say it because some cuckoo person is going to start blogging how we are supporting women getting raped, which we do not support,” Powers chimed in. “And she is not guilty or any of those things, but the point is that the drunk woman is — she’s just not held accountable for anything. The drunk guy, however, is supposed to make all these amazingly perfect decisions, and not make any mistakes.”
