Boo to good advice

Headline: Bitcoin & Blockchain Searches Exceed Trump! Blockchain Stocks Are Next!

From the BBC we have a judges’s warning about a familiar issue.

Judge Lindsey Kushner QC said women were entitled to “drink themselves into the ground” but their “disinhibited behaviour” could put them in danger.

Gosh – really? So young women tottering around late at night drunk out of their silly little minds are putting themselves at risk. Amazing. But - 
A female judge’s warning that drunk women are putting themselves at greater risk of rape was “victim-blaming”, a police commissioner has said.
Victim-blaming? Rape is a horrible crime but the entire world knows there is a risk to young women if they drink too much, whatever the situation. Yet still we have people who seem to think the judge’s observation is inappropriate.

There is a notorious risk to young women during the weekend booze-fest but apparently we are supposed to tiptoe around the fact that they are putting themselves in danger if they drink themselves into the ground as the judge put it.

Yet we must tiptoe around that because? Because politically correct reasons I suppose. There are always politically correct reasons. It’s time we did something about that.
