Don't Ask Amy

Posted By on 11.30.09 at 04:08 PM

There is a lot of bad advice in this column, but this—this is destructive, dangerous, and negligent. Amy takes a rape victim who is incapable of admitting that she was a rape victim, and suggests that she dial up her rapist in order to "determine what happened." He raped her after taking her into a stranger's bed room, pretending it was his own, and repeatedly promising that he wouldn't pursue sex. This guy is not going to help his victim figure out that he raped her!

The Sexist takes the Trib's Ask Amy to task on the subject of "date" rape.
