During a discussion on reports that national sorority organizations are advising University of Virginia sorority members to avoid all fraternity events during “bid week” out of sexual assault concerns, a Fox News contributor suggested that some female students who have been assaulted were “bad girls” who like to be “naughty.”
The University of Virginia has been the subject of investigations for on-campus sexual assaults prior to, and in the wake of a mostly discredited Rolling Stone story that appeared in the music magazine last year.
Appearing on Fox’s Outnumbered, former Clueless actress Stacey Dash shook her head while saying she found the ban “ridiculous,” referring to the college women as “girls,” in video captured by Media Matters of America.
“It’s ridiculous, “she said before reversing direction. “And I think — the girls, I think it’s a good thing for the good girls, okay — women — to be told ‘stay home, be safe.’ The other bad girls — bad women — are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt, and then, y’know…”
After trailing off, she added, “But the other thing about this, is that it then blames the alcohol and not the person, who over-drinks. So, you know, it’s like the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, you get yourself drunk.”
Co-host Andrea Tantaros jumped in to say that the people she feels sorry for are the University of Virginia fraternity members, saying, “None of them have been convicted.”
