Guilt poisons women

Germaine Greer, cnn.com, 12 March 2013.

“Women live lives of continual apology. They are born and raised to take the blame for other people’s behavior. If they are treated without respect, they tell themselves that they have failed to earn respect. If their husbands do not fancy them, it is because they are unattractive. Dirt and disorder in the family home is their fault, though they created none of it.”

Comment: Rape

Germaine Greer, independent.co.uk, 2 April 2006

“Fighting to the death is the only way a woman can be effectively exonerated from the suspicion of consent; however unreasonable it may seem, anything less can be interpreted as evidence of consent.”
