A couple of photos that should help put a certain rationalization to rest for good.
They were essentially separated into three categories:
If they dressed to attract attention they were sluts. If they were unimpressed with the juvenile antics of the boys they were bitches, And if they turned down their advances they were dykes.
And the sad thing is that many of those young men really bought into that mindset. The even sadder thing is that many of today's young men still do.
You might want to make sure you have your morning cup of coffee ready and are sitting down before reading of the horrendous incident that recently happened to a young girl in Steubenville, Ohio.
P.S. For those of you wondering if I joined in with my peers who referred to women as sluts, bitches, and dykes, no...no I didn't. But to my eternal shame I did not stop them either.
Of course that is no longer the case. Since those high school years I have not only stopped conversations like that, I have also trained dozens of women in how to defend themselves against attack and taught dozens of young men how to properly respect a lady.
In my opinion the latter is more important than the former, and if EVERYBODY taught their boys how to treat women as all men should, then our society would be much the better for it.
What happened in Steubenville should NEVER happen in this country, and the distasteful fact is that of course it does. And it happens far more often than any of us would like to believe.
