I happen to view this video from my friend’s page. I really don’t know how to react to it. Who’s fault is it when something bad happens? In the video, rape is the woman’s fault. I understand the use the sarcasm in making the video. Yes, compared to direct message, sarcasm is remembered for a longer time. But often of not, sarcasm falls thru, especially when the sarcasm is not clear.
I hope this saddens you

Sad as it may seem, this page made my day.
It is a woman’s responsibility to dress herself in the morning. It is your responsibility to look at her like a human being regardless of what she is wearing.
How often do we treat the opposite sex as an object? Or do we see them as a fellow human beings with feelings?
One step further, how often do we treat people around us only for their usefulness? Do we only talk to our friends or colleagues when we need their assistance? Have we only boiled down to our usefulness, work we can produce? Are we loved / loving because simply who we are?
A woman, or any human being, should not have to dress to get your attention. You should give them the full attention they deserve simply because they are a fellow human being.
