Comedian Summarizes Victim-Blaming With One Brilliant Analogy

"When he said 'no' to me taking everything he owned I just didn't know if he meant it."

Victim blaming is bullsh*t, and comedian Alice Brine is calling bullsh*t on all that bullsh*t by explaining the illogical nature of it in one simple paragraph. 

Brine, who lives in Auckland, New Zealand, took to Facebook Tuesday after posting about the rape trial of New Zealand cricket player Scott Kuggeleijn ― which has focused on whether the plaintiff “meant it” when she said “no” ― to enlighten those still confused on the subject. 

The post, which has racked up over 100,000 likes on Facebook, has resulted in Brine getting messages from people around the world thanking her for speaking out. 

The point is simple: “If you can get your head around not stealing a car parked outside your house, then you can get your head around not stealing a woman’s body just because she’s sitting on your bed,” she told BuzzFeed. 

And there you have it.
