I’m almost afraid to bring up this topic, but what the heck.
A Toronto police officer was reprimanded and forced to apologize for remarks he made while speaking at a York University forum.
The officer told the audience women should avoid “dressing like sluts” if they don’t want to risk being assaulted.
Personally, I think the officer had good intentions. I really don’t think the advice was completely wrong.
Oh sure, women SHOULD be able to dress how they wish and not be attacked. But, I question the wisdom of dressing in a provocative way. It’s not like everyone out there is sane. Just in case one hasn’t noticed, the world is full of whackos.
I’m not saying that a woman who doesn’t dress like a nun should expect to be assaulted, but perhaps she faces a higher risk of becoming a victim of some weirdo?
That’s just the way I see it – there’s no one to reprimand or fire me if thats the way I see it.
