Default Victim Blaming

Have you ever participated in a form of victim blaming?

Is it ever acceptable to apportion blame to someone who is a victim of crime?

The ones what leave their front door unlocked are the worst IMHO.

Closely followed by the ones who choose to walk home to the nartside at 2 in the morning.

That invalidates their Home Insurance (if they have it), as does leaving the windows open etc. So, the Insurance Companies blame burglary victims!

When Thierry handled the ball, Ireland should have cleared it.
They should have cleared it.
I'd be asking where the hell's my goalkeeper?
The ball bounced in the six yard box from a free just inside the half way line.
How can you let the ball bounce in the six yard box?
How can you let Thierry Henry get goal side of you?
If that was my dressing room at half time I wouldn't even mention the hand ball. I would have just said 'why didn't someone put their head on it? There's only one ball, go and head it.'

Are you "blaming" the hook thread for this thread?

Are you thread blaming?

You can be sure of it.

There is a wooded area where i live and a few scumbags are known to gather there doing the usual drinking and probably smoking a few joints. They are known to act the bolox with other kids around at times. My youngest lad is banned from there. He has been warned a million times.

Anyway, my youngfella without my knowledge, went through there with another buddy of his a few weeks ago. Scumbags took his phone off him and broke it. Thankfully he did not get a box. When he got home we were like dogs over it and herself had to stop me going down with a hurley. When it all died down my son got told he was partly responsible for going down there when he was warned not to many times.

It's funny if a man went out and got hopped and beaten savagely by random scumbags all you';d hear is "ah you were probably asking for it" "why didn't you fight back" "you must have been drunk off your game" "what were you doing in Blackpool at that time anyway"

whereas if it's a woman who as George Hook says gets wasted and gos to a complete stranger's gaff and gets assaulted/raped all you hear is "women should be able to drink as much as they like" "Women should be able wear whatever they like" "women should be able to fuck any random bloke they like" blah fucking blah

Its'a combination of white knighting/feminazi fucking bullshit.
