A CASC member makes a comment about Roseanne:
And a friend of the blog offers an observation:
Does this principle apply also to women who have sex drunk and who claim they otherwise wouldn’t have? How does this not cut out the heart of the idea that a woman who is drunk can be taken advantage of?
It’s hard to see in the screenshot but Mrs. Connolly is one of those people. The blue haired atheist feminist people.
She authored an article on the Coalition’s web page last month entitled “What does it mean to report to the Front Royal police?” in which she details the woes of anyone who happens to be raped in the area at or around Christendom.
We will pretend for a moment that we are reading a reliable source.
With that in mind, there’s still a couple issues this piece raises. The stupidest first:
[If the rape victim] is an underclassman (freshman or sophomore), she has to hunt down a resident assistant (RA), whom she must beg for a curfew extension. If she goes to the hospital without first getting an extension, she may find herself in trouble with Student Life in the morning.
Hmmm, I was brutally assaulted; do I care what Student Life thinks?
Or, to put it another way, instead of being raped, you were stabbed. Are you going to hunt down your RA before calling an ambulance? If your college requires that, don’t go to that college.
The imaginary victim decides to go to the hospital to have a rape kit done but Connolly points out that it might not get tested. That’s not exactly encouraging. But maybe that won’t happen to this victim (spoiler: it does) and she still has to get to the hospital first:
Most students don’t have cars. She asks all the girls in her dorm, but most are already sleeping, or else not in yet. Odds are, she does not find a ride. There’s a sexual assault support nonprofit the next county over, Choices of Page County. They provide transportation to a hospital. Unfortunately, Front Royal is too far for them to come. She calls another nonprofit, The Laurel Center in Winchester, and is told that hospital transportation isn’t a service they’re equipped to provide.
So there’s nobody to take her to the hospital to get a rape kit done which won’t be tested anyway. She’s too polite to wake anyone up except for the RA she had to ask permission to leave from and the RA doesn’t have a car and can’t call or wake up someone who does.
But I can think of someone who could drive these poor girls to the hospital: the women who are part of the CASC and live in Front Royal. They should start their own version of Choices or volunteer to help add that service at the Laurel Center. Help people on a local level instead of being hashtag warriors and making new groups so they can help all the women at all the Catholic colleges. You know, subsidiarity right?
This is the other side of the coin from the Do Nothings I talked about earlier. Instead of writing articles or attacking people online, the CASC could be doing something to actively help the women they’re current trying to exploit, but SJWs destroy things. They don’t do constructive things. They’ll set up nonprofits they can leech off of, but start a van service for abused or endangered women in their own town? That’s work. They don’t have time. Are they empowered feminists or not? Start a group and recruit people who can do driving. Something like that would be far more helpful than Dinah’s Voice.
I would hope, should any one of them do something like this, that they wouldn’t turn away girls who were raped when they were drunk just because people with lowered inhibitions don’t do things they wouldn’t have done otherwise.
