It might be the 21st century, but there's still a tendency toA blame the victim,A be it for drinking or wearing a short skirt. We have collected eight recent ads that imply if a woman drinks or fails to cover up, then she is somehow asking for it. The most headline-inducing recent example was when the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board released a series of posters showing a woman's legs sprawled on a bathroom floor, underwear at her ankles, with the text, "See what happens when your friends drink too much?" They were later pulled. We've also found a few anti-rape PSAs that get the message right, so there's hope for progress.
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board pulled this ad in 2012 after a series of complaints that it blamed the victim (and her friends) for date rape. Another ad in the series read, "She didn't want to do it, but she couldn't say no." This suggests the victim's lack of control is to blame, or that not saying "no" (while catatonic) somehow leads to rape.

This ad by Buzzfree Prom puts a different, homophobic spin on the theme: On the accompanying web site, it says that if a guy drinks underage at prom, he deserves what happens to him if he's sent to prison. This 2008 Egyptian anti-rape PSA reads, a€?You cana€™t stop them, but you can protect yourself.a€? It implies that unless a woman wears very conservative clothing, it is inevitable that she will be defiled. Blaming victims for being drunk or wearing a short skirt at the time of their assault has become the norm. Pennsylvania's Liquor Control BoardWhen two high school football players were convicted of raping an intoxicated girl in Steubenville, Ohio, a€” after sending pictures of the act to friends and posting about it on social media a€” a significant portion of the backlash was aimed at the victimA rather than her attackers.
The meme of targeting the violated as opposed to the violator has even made it into modern PSAs that are supposed to be anti-domestic violence. Again, it puts the onus on the woman to not get raped, as if drinking is a precursor to consent.

People complained that the booze angle made rapists and their victims seem like equivalents.
Despite its thoroughly Italian sounding name, Intermeccanica was actually the brain child of Frank and Paula Reisner – a Canadian couple with a deep love of sports cars. Coyote would use to lay an elaborate trap for Road Runner, but it actually used to be a very common sight on the streets of the United States between the 1920s and 1950s.
