Get rid of the "Ask Amy" column, please.

Bitch answered a girl's question about rape by basically telling her it was her own fault. What a judgemental cow.

jezebel.com/5414393/ask-amy-to-rape-victim-first-you-were-a-victim-of-your-own-awful-judgment

The sad thing is, this isn't the first time she's given this crap "advice". Guess what girls, it's never the rapist's fault. It's ALL on us. We're all sluts who wear suggestive clothing and get drunk.

She has a pattern of this "blame the victim" crap in her columns. I hope newspaper editors everywhere wise up and drop her.

I've hated her even before this. Some mother wrote in about her son because he was doing poorly in school, and she automatically blamed the kid. Which, yeah, sometimes it's true, but just as often there's a learning disability, or bullying, or a toxic teacher in the mix, and she never even addressed that possibility.

And of course, now that the Rocky's gone, I've got to read Dear Abby online because the Denver Post sucks so hard in so many different ways only has this stupid bitch's column.

She's vicious. She should not be giving advice to anyone.

That was pretty shitty advice, agreed. It's up there with this gem from one of Slate's spin off sites:

http://www.doublex.com/section/life/friend-or-foe-my-friends-ditched-me-when-i-got-drugged

I stopped patronizing the site after this horrifying advice. The columnist flat out told this girl that she was to blame for her assault and her friends were right not to come to her aide. That's what husbands and boyfriends are for, but if you don't have one, you're SOL and deserve to be drugged with roofies and wake up in a ditch.
