Boy that's getting a bit overboard isn't it? I reckon cool heads think clearer than hot ones.
Nope it's a fair comment, perhaps you misunderstood?
We don't say to women victims "don't get raped". We should be saying to men "don't rape".
In a cycling context, cyclists are told "not to get hit", when what we should be saying to motorists is "don't hit cyclists"
Do you see what is meant about blaming the victim now?
