Reacting To Emily Yoffe’s Slate Article With Drake GIFs

Slate writer Emily Yoffe says college women are always getting raped because of their “dangerous drinking habits.” Drake is here to show us how ridiculous she is.

1. “Sometimes the woman is the only one drunk and runs into a particular type of shrewd—and sober—sexual predator who lurks where women drink like a lion at a watering hole.”

2. “For these kinds of men, the rise of female binge drinking has made campuses a prey-rich environment.”

3. “We are failing to let women know that when they render themselves defenseless, terrible things can be done to them.”

4. “Young women are getting a distorted message that their right to match men drink for drink is a feminist issue.”

5. “The real feminist message should be that when you lose the ability to be responsible for yourself, you drastically increase the chances that you will attract the kinds of people who, shall we say, don’t have your best interest at heart.”

6. “When your judgment is compromised, your risk is elevated of having sexual violence perpetrated against you,” says Christopher Krebs.

7. “Puking in your hair, peeing in your pants, and engaging in dangerous behaviors have to stop being considered hilarious escapades or proud war stories and become a source of disgust and embarrassment.”

Who has ever proud of puking in their own hair?

8. “I’ve told my daughter that it’s her responsibility to take steps to protect herself.”

9. “If female college students start moderating their drinking as a way of looking out for their own self-interest—and looking out for your own self-interest should be a primary feminist principle—I hope their restraint trickles down to the men.”

10. “If I had a son, I would tell him that it’s in his self-interest not to be the drunken frat boy who finds himself accused of raping a drunken classmate.”

…seriously?! Rapists don’t “find themselves” accused. Rapists commit illegal acts of violence.

11. “Educating students about rape, teaching them that by definition a very drunk woman can’t consent to sex, is crucial…But nothing is going to be as effective at preventing alcohol-facilitated assaults as a reduction in alcohol consumption.”

In what world is teaching men “a very drunk woman can’t consent to sex” less important than telling women not to drink?

12. “The 2009 campus sexual assault study, co-authored by Krebs, found campus alcohol education programs ‘seldom emphasize the important link’ between women’s voluntary alcohol and drug use ‘and becoming a victim of sexual assault.’”

Women don’t “become victims.” Rapists make them victims by raping them.

13. “Of course, perpetrators should be caught and punished. But when you are dealing with intoxication and sex, there are the built-in complications of incomplete memories and differing interpretations of intent and consent.”

14. “The three young women I spoke to who were victims of such men attended different colleges, but their stories are so distressingly similar…In each case the woman lost track of how much she’d had to drink.”

15. “As a young person, I did my share of fun, crazy, silly, stupid, and ill-advised things. But at least I always knew that I was responsible for my behavior, not the alcohol.”

16. “It is unrealistic to expect colleges will ever be great at catching and punishing sexual predators; that’s simply not their core mission.”

Say what?

17. “Lake says, ‘The biggest change in going to college is that you have to understand safety begins with you. For better or worse, fair or not, just or not, the consequences will fall on your head.’ I’ll drink (one drink) to that.”

That’s a joke, right?

18. NOTE: victims do not choose to get raped, it’s the rapist that picks them.

19. And women should be able to live in a world where they can drink to their heart’s content without having to worry about being violently assaulted.

20. Facts only.

21. Bye, Emily Yoffe.
