This Campaign Is What We’re Trying To Fix [Trigger Warning]

http://feministing.com/2011/12/07/pa-liquor-control-board-to-teens-rape-is-your-fault-and-your-friends-fault/

This PA LCB campaign poster appeared on my facebook feed from a friend, and I was horrified at the comments about the poster there.  The ones at feministing are better, but it’s still a lot to deal with.  The campaign is called “Control Tonight”, and implies that if you drink a lot, it will be your fault when you get raped.  Some people are calling or emailing in to try to get this campaign yanked, so I thought people might want to know about it.  It’s also relevant to the attitudes SOAR’s campaign is trying to change.  The poster itself is a potential trigger, so take care.
