No, I really do.

"Naturally, this problem is being blamed not on the men who choose to rape, nor on the failings of the police and the courts, but on those dirty bitches who choose to walk about being women. […]

Imagine if there was an epidemic of heterosexual men being anally raped across Britain. Does anybody imagine we would hear the same arguments? Men shouldn’t wear those sexy tight tank-tops if they don’t want to be raped. Men shouldn’t get so hammered on a Saturday night that they can barely walk straight unless they want a hairy bloke to drag them into an alleyway. These are arguments nobody would ever make – but what’s the difference?"

It's so refreshing to see sentiments like this in a mainstream newspaper rather than just on radfem blogs (not that there's anything wrong with those…).
