Re: A balanced response to the Serena faux pas
Yes she isn't responsible, but post prosecution it is worth pointing out her foolishness to all young girls who may find themselves in this situation. Some guys out there have nasty deeds on their minds. Drinking yourself unconscious is not helping your safety. Serena's comments have some value and common sense. Sadly it's being totally ignored.
True. In fact the thread that was locked in GM really evolved into a discussion about whether or not telling people that drinking themselves into a drunken stupor is probably not the best way to stay safe, is a good thing or not.
The Utopians in that thread believe telling a person to take common sense precautions is attacking and blaming the victim.
For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.
The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare
