Bask in the Fordish wisdom:
OK, so we got one skank calling out the’whores’? I’m afraid that I don’t see the difference.
She ought to be ashamed! Repent.
If I behaved like this slut I’d be getting a huge can of whoopass, for the record.

See her twitter account picture? I guess “practicing what you preach” doesn’t run in the family either.
I guess it does take one to know one.

Open for discussion!
When I read ““Stay alert, walk tall, carry mace, take self-defence classes & don’t dress like a whore,”, I read it as advice on how not to become the target of a sexual assault. I think people are taking more than a few leaps in relating this to “victims of sexual assault dress like whores”.
When I am sexually aroused by a woman, often it is because of the way she has presented herself – through her makeup and her attire. I would hazard a guess that when one of these jerk-offs decides to assault a woman, they do so because they are sexually attracted to her.
No one blames the victim of a mosquito bite for being bit – but they do recommend a mosquito repellent. That’s what this comment is – it’s not saying “victims of sexual assault dress like whores”, it’s saying “here are preventative steps for not becoming the next victim of sexual assault”.
I don’t think it is wrong to assume that wearing a scantily clad outfit, alone in the wee hours of the night, would only make you a more desirable target. The entire quote reads like sound advice to me (though perhaps not written quite as eloquently as it could have been), and not in anyway like a “rape joke”.
@Frank I just thought Krista’s comments were the height of irony. There is some truth to them, though. After all, if I dress like a cop, might you not assume I am one? If I wear a $3000 Armani, might you not think I spend a lot of time on Bay Street? Conversely, if I dress in skimpy outfits, what purpose would I have in exposing myself publicly than to attract attention? Of course, those who would prey on women would do so regardless (who knows what sickness drives them?), but to say that certain manners of dress don’t attract unwanted attention (not necessarily the criminal kind), is the height of naivete, and I bristle every time I hear people making such comments.
