A well-known feminist dissident Camille Paglia one wrote:
For a decade feminists have drilled their disciples to say “Rape is a crime of violence but not sex.” This sugarcoated Shirley Temple nonsense has exposed young women to disaster misled by feminism, they do not expect rape from the nice boys from good homes who sit next to them in class…..
These girls say, “well, I should be able to get drunk at a fraternity party and go upstairs to a guys room without anything happening.” And I say, “oh, really? And when you drive your car to New York City, do you leave your keys on the hood?” My point is that if your car is stolen after you do something like that, yes, the police should pursue the thief and should be punished. But at the same time, the police – and I – have the right to say, “you stupid idiot, what the hell were you thinking?”
Another outspoken feminist Wendy McElroy wrote:
The fact that women are vulnerable to attack means we cannot have it all. We cannot walk at night across and unlit campus or down the back alley, without incurring real danger. These are things that every woman should be able to do, but “shoulds” belong in a utopian world. They belong in a world where you drop your wallet in the crowd and have it returned, complete with credit cards and cash. The world in which unlocked Porsches are parked in the inner-city. And children can be left unattended in the Park. This is not the reality that confronts and confines of us.

In one awful high-profile case after another—the U.S. Naval Academy; Steubenville, Ohio; now the allegations in Maryville, Mo.—we read about a young woman, sometimes only a girl, who goes to a party and ends up being raped. As soon as the school year begins, so do reports of female students sexually assaulted by their male classmates. A common denominator in these cases is alcohol, often copious amounts, enough to render the young woman incapacitated. But a misplaced fear of blaming the victim has made it somehow unacceptable to warn inexperienced young women that when they get wasted, they are putting themselves in potential peril.
