Blaming the Victim Blamers

"Blaming the victim" is a cliché that seldom has any validity. It's a typical liberal tactic for blaming the so-called victim blamers. This is a bit convoluted. Some time back, in Canada, a cop was cautioning girls not to make themselves vulnerable to rape by hanging around the wrong places dressed the wrong way. He was immediately denounced for "blaming the victim," the reasoning being that if somebody's raped, the rapist and the rapist alone is to blame. But that's not reasoning. I'm sure the cop had no intention of blaming any rape victims, but was rather explaining how best not to become a rape victim. Feminists, being irrational by nature, just don't get this. Now, if the cop had told people that they should lock their doors at night, so as to minimize their chances of becoming the victims of home invasions, I doubt that he'd have been said to be "blaming the victim." Cops and other responsible people hand out advice like that all the time.

If there's any kind of a basic principle involved here, it's that the left reveres and holds sacred self-destructive behavior in general, and demonizes anybody that cautions against it, usually labeling such cautioning as "hate" or "bigotry." Any warning at all that the homosexual lifestyle is dangerous is called "homophobia." Telling girls that promiscuity is a good way to destroy their future is "slut-shaming." Pointing out that mixed marriages almost always are a bad idea, tending to break up and resulting in offspring who don't know who the hell they are is of course "racism." And of course being against things that aren't good for the whole country is even worse, if anything. Opposing open borders is also "racism," and any opposition to the growth of big government is the worst sort of "racism."*

And most of all, trying to teach children that certain kinds of behavior aren't to their ultimate advantage is just plain evil, while those who encourage children to engage idiotic self-destructive behavior are "progressive" and "courageous."  This from The Right Stuff:

School Protects Child From Own Stupidity, “Progress” Reacts

Source: Mashable
A North Carolina school is being criticized for caring about a child’s safety more than appealing to the hipster and single-motherhood demographic (i.e. liberals).
Unfortunately named 9-year-old Grayson Bruce was apparently too busy being a special snowflake to get the hint regarding social hierarchy.  Recognizing this, the child was told by Buncombe Country Schools to stop making himself a target and to stop bringing hisMy Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic backpack to school.
Mom is upset, of course.
Dad is absent, of course.
The reaction has been as expected.  A Change.org petition was posted, attracting a bunch of signatures no one will read.  One of the Girly Pony Cartoon’s creators showed hastag solidarity with Grayson on twitter, which was supposed to be profound or something.
Even Glenn Beck  weighed in on the situation, reminding us why American conservatism is such a miserable farce these days.
Quoted From Mashable: The conservative radio host said that Grayson has “the balls to be different,” and encouraged the boy to remain that way.
Balls? If Grayson had balls he wouldn’t have cried to mommy like a bitch when classmates made fun of him for being “different.”  Grayson would have fought back when people started pushing and punching had he been raised to know he possessed balls.  Balls wouldn’t cling to your frumpy mother’s skirt when humanity doesn’t accommodate your abnormal replacement for a masculine influence.
Methinks Beck is too busy portraying a profound guy in stupid glasses to actually have the following profound thought: how can a boy ever become a man when his life is on pink pony training wheels?
This finally brings us to Lori Duron, proud “mother” of a breathing little abortion in Elton John knock-offs.
Lori was moved to write an open letter to Buncombe.  On queerty, of course.  Of course.
Reading her letter gave me a glimpse into the mind of a woman who would reduce her child to a garishly-colored progressive merit badge.  It was awful.
You see, Grayson has the right to carry the backpack of his choice — just like every other student in your schools – and he has the right to a safe learning environment. You have an obligation to see to it that those rights are protected.
Well you see, Lori, rights and obligations were never supposed to be separated.  Rights entail a responsibility for those who enjoy them…  At least they did before your type started voting.
Rights are not equal, some rights take precedence over others.  For instance, a person’s right to safety takes precedence over a person’s right to model a girly backpack.  By telling Grayson to stop wearing his punch magnet, Bumcombe is enforcing Grayson’s right to a safe learning environment.  The school understands and has acted upon the rights it has been given by our government.
If backpacks are triggers to these kids, they need help.  They need to be able to see a backpack and not act out in dangerous, antisocial and harmful ways. After all, backpacks are everywhere.
You try and fail to reduce this issue to a matter of backpacks, and not what images and behaviors accompany them.  You overall make a rather shoddy go of creating a false moral high ground.  You call those who are triggered by Grayson’s aberrant behavior antisocial bullies, only to demand that society be deconstructed to serve the whims of a broken 9-year-old and a fat, wicked single mom.  That so many stupid voters echo your poisonous opinion only shows how far Western civilization has fallen.
Lori and those who share these antisocial views seem to believe society exists to provide resources for bizarre and socially-detrimental behavior.   To value society more than these broken women and their bastards is now considered the greatest of evils.
We exist in a world that has bent itself almost to the breaking point to accommodate these monsters and parasites, only for them to remark that it’s not enough.  That it will never be enough.
Take a good, long look gentlemen: this is what a society on borrowed time looks like.

Quibcag: I was going to put a "My Little Pony" illustration in it, but everything I found was just too depressing, so instead we have Ukyo explaining the point to Ryoga, both from Ranma ½ (らんま½)
