#FixedIt – only cause of women being murdered is men choose to murder them

This one, from The Sun, manages to hit all kinds of lows.

Blaming the victim, while also making her not her own person, but someone’s daughter.

The perpetrator, his behaviour, his clothes, his motives, his contribution to the crime he allegedly committed, none of those things make it the headline, the sub-headline or the first two paragraphs. They’re all devoted to making sure readers are fully convinced the victim was drunk, as if that’s the reason or even slightly relevant to why she was raped and murdered.

Not the first women have had to say this and it won’t be the last:

WOMEN ARE ONLY RAPED AND MURDERED BECAUSE MEN DECIDE TO RAPE OR MURDER THEM

THE ONLY CAUSE OF RAPE AND MURDER IS RAPISTS AND MURDERERS

If you don’t understand this, there is something very wrong with you, not with the people trying to explain it to you.
