Princeton Mom on campus “rape”: How about not getting blind-drunk before you do a hook-up?
Speaking to Carol Costello on CNN, Ms Patton said there was more than one type of rape.
She said: ‘We’re now talking about or identifying as rape what really is a clumsy hook-up melodrama or a fumbled attempt at a kiss or a caress. In many cases this is what it is.
‘It makes one wonder, why don’t you [rape victims] get up and leave? Why, as a woman, do you not tell a man who is making advances you’re not comfortable with, “Stop. Leave”.
Clearly uncomfortable with Ms Patton’s comments, Costello asked: ‘If your daughter gets horribly drunk and a man takes advantage of her sexually, and she’s passed out drunk… she deserves it?’
Ms Patton replied that women should ‘stay sober enough’ to leave a situation if things get out of hand.
Asked if she was suggesting women should change their behavior, rather than teaching men not to rape, the Princeton Mom replied: ‘We could teach burglars not to steal, but better advice: Lock your door.’
