For the Blame the Victim Files.
A police officer in the States played the 'shame the potential victim' by displaying female high school students' MySpace profiles to their school assembly and then analyzing them as being "slutty."
But wait it gets worse.
The officer then told the 1,000 teens amassed at the school assembly that he passed on the student's pictures to a sexual predator who would masturbate to her picture.
Apparently this display was provoked by the story of a teenage girl who was tracked through her MySpace account and was then raped and shot. In the world according to the officer, the girl students' page is inviting people to do the exact same things to her.
Yes teaching about internet safety is important for teens especially as many of their parents are likely to be clueless about the technology. But the only lesson that the female students of this assembly received was to not trust the police to keep them safe. And the boys also learned an important lesson. Through his tirade the officer legitimized the most common excuse for rape that rape apologists and rapists use, the victim was asking for it.
We're teaching our children well.
