Merry Date Rape-mas

Sometimes I wonder if we still need the traditional understanding of feminism. Then this happens:Β Bloomingdales-Spike-Drink-Ad-jpg

So obviously, we still have a long road to go.

Bloomingdale’s has already apologized for the ad seeming to imply date rape. It doesn’t seem to imply to me. It straight up encourages unacceptable behavior.

So, here is your PSA for the day: Don’t put anything anywhere you haven’t been asked to. Ever. Doubly so without them knowing. Don’t sneak things into people’s drinks. Don’t put your body parts on their body without them asking for it and enthusiastically agreeing to every step of the process. Just don’t put things where you haven’t been asked to. I feel like following this rule would solve a lot of our problems.
