Oh, Stacey Dash. The Fox News Senior Correspodent (the fact she just started this job 5 minutes ago and already has a “senior” position is laughable in itself) topped herself in the ‘idiotic speak’ department. And now, she’s backtracking. But still needs to have several seats. Find out about her latest debacle after the jump…
Since Fox News continues to give this woman a platform, we’ll continue to call her out for the pure foolery that comes out of her mouth. Denouncing bad behavior can be just as important as praising good behavior.
Stacey Dash, who says she is a rape victim herself, said some words about rape victims that had the social media world and beyond railing her with no mercy.
While on the “Outnumered” Fox News show this week, Stacey criticized rape victims calling them “naughty girls”. It was all in response to a national sorority’s ban on UVA campus women attending “bid week”–which is a week of so-called debauchery that the college men participate in while attempting to gain entrance in fraternities– in order to avoid being raped.
That “suggestion” by the organization is bad enough for obvious reasons. Stacey seemed to agree it was a bad suggestion, but then followed up with foolery:
“It’s ridiculous. And I think the girls, I think it’s a good thing for the good girls, OK—women—to be told ‘Stay home, be safe.’ The other bad girls—bad women—are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt, and then, you know …
“The other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol and not the person who overdrinks. So, you know, it’s like the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, you get yourself drunk.”
So now, women who choose to attend a party are “bad naughty girls” simply because they decided to attend a party….and got hurt? What?
We’re not going to even touch the ish her co-host Andrea Tantaros said about “feeling sorry” for the fraternity men who were being treated as potential rapists as soon as they get on campus.
Stacey then semi-back tracked. She posted a message on her Facebook page claiming she was just joking. Yes, because victim-blaming rape jokes are always hysterical. Especially coming from someone who claims to be a rape survivor herself.
“After a failed attempt at humor about “good girls” and “naughty girls,” during my recent appearance on Outnumbered, I transitioned to the very serious issue of men blaming alcohol for their vile behavior. LET ME BE CLEAR: I am a victim of physical and sexual abuse. My point was that there IS NO EXCUSE for a man taking advantage of women under any circumstances. I believe that these universities focusing on alcohol consumption as a means to stop evil behavior takes the focus off the real issue of the objectification of women and how that can be prevented. I apologize to anyone who believed I was blaming the victims of these horrible acts.
Girl, have a seat and do us ALL a favor and remove yourself from public speaking opportunities. It’s becoming a public hazard.
With that said,her antics and publicity have helped her get a job again, apparently. She’s starring in a movie called “Cloudy With a Chance of Love” on Hallmark this weekend.
