      Because it must be the fault of the victim, right? Maybe women shouldn’t drink at all? Or better yet, maybe women should not go out at night? Or maybe they should only go out with a male chaperone, like their father, brother or spouse? Oh I know ! Let’s have all women wear a veil over their head and long covers so they don’t tempt the male, superior species! That’s the answer !

        Happily surprised to see someone else fighting back against the misogynistic, ignorant and outdated opinions frequently expressed on this board. And in before the conservative white power base gets their say in attempting to blame liberals and self martyr. Good job!

    Jack … so you think a Lyft driver has a right to rape a woman if she uses Lyft for a ride home after consuming alcohol? I hope you don’t have a daughter. Shame on you for your comment. Lyft has a long history of hiring criminals and rapists. They do not train their drivers and they do not properly address complaints of sexually inappropriate conduct. Women are being raped every single day by Lyft drivers. And they must be held accountable for their actions. I hope these lawsuits not only compensate the victims for their losses but also bring a change to an industry that has turned a blind eye to this epidemic.

      Pretty sure he’s commenting on Lyft itself should not be sued, more than they are saying anything else. You can’t ensure your drivers won’t be punks, even if you do background checks (which they do) https://help.lyft.com/hc/en-us/articles/115012925687-Driver-requirements

      I might add, that part of his comment does indeed ring true. If there is a threat with getting rides, one should probably be careful about getting into a car drunk. This isn’t victim blaming, it’s prudence.

      It is not misogynistic in itself, the user stating it is over the top, but not misogynistic, and this isn’t about white power.

      I see you ruining a second page with your nonsense Jon.

    Generally all of the conservative Trump Troll crowd will come in and blame liberals or the breakdown of the nuclear family or some other garbage to justify that they be allowed to continue preying upon women, or lament that they’re no longer allowed to assault and harass in the workplace or just generally victim blame. This is not the case, this kind of behavior is no longer going to fly, and their opinions will not last.

      Um, PolarBeaRepeal….Your “etc…” left a lot to be desired.

      Clean up your own house (i.e. party) before you try to play THAT game.

        If you really believe someone’s political affiliation increases one’s proclivity to harass another person, my cousin who is a prince in Africa needs you to send him 100 $10 gift cards and then he’ll immediately deposit $1,000,000 into your bank account.

        I think we need to stop making this a political argument and simply come to an agreement that there are bad parties on both sides of the aisle and regardless of which party the person identified with, their actions are unacceptable, reprehensible and they should be tried and (if found guilty) punished to the fullest extent of the law.

        Can we all agree on that?

        Jon,
        Who did Trent Franks sexually assault? Asking a “friend” to be a surrogate and offering to pay a royalty for the 9 months of hard work isn’t the same as what is going back and forth on here.
