Courageous Chrissie Hynde Dares to Tell It Like It Is
Musician Chrissie Hynde has come under attack by the PC infested media for speaking candidly of women’s roles in rape.
“If I’m walking around and I’m very modestly dressed and I’m keeping to myself and someone attacks me, then I’d say that’s his fault. But if I’m being very lairy and putting it about and being provocative, then you are enticing someone who’s already unhinged – don’t do that. Come on! That’s just common sense.”
As one can imagine the reactions were largely unappreciative :
Chrissie Hynde has completely destroyed her feminist legacy in one ignorant, appalling statement”, tweeted Andrew.
Dear Chrissie Hynde. NOTHING ever justifies the rape or sexual assault of a woman. It’s the abusers fault only. Love. A Man”, tweeted Antony.
“Thing about rapists is that they’re rapists. They don’t care what victims wear. Their impulse is to rape. They’re rapists. Chrissie Hynde”, wrote Jill.
Of course they are wrong and she’s right, all she’s saying is that it depends on the circumstances, but speaking the truth in this day and age will get you mostly contempt.
Chrissie, not be deterred of course, went even further, by accusing her fellow musical colleagues of prostitution:
“Women who sell what their product is by using sex – that’s prostitution,” Hynde was quoted as saying.
“A pop star who’s walking around, parading themselves as a porn star and saying they’re feminists. They’re prostitutes. I’m not making a value judgment on prostitutes, but just say what you are.”
There you have it, the plain truth spoken by a great female role model.
