Not only does he cite Logan’s dress as reason for her rape, but he cites her dress at a red carpet event, not what she was wearing at the time of her rape.
Earth to liberated women: when you display legs, thighs, or cleavage, some liberated men will see it as a…
I said I wasn’t going to get mad anymore today but fuck me.

If you take a job as a masseuse, don’t be shocked if your male customers think you’re a prostitute. And if you want to be taken seriously as a journalist, don’t pose for pictures that emphasize your cleavage.”

I am stunned. This man isn’t portraying himself as merely a rape apologist, but a sympathizer. Not for rape victims, but for rapists.
He has written an article which states that he understands why men rape, and that women should simply stay out of the way.
