In a Pit thread, Miller says:
With respect to a poster saying that women who choose to drink alcohol or take drugs deserve blame for being raped.
My contention is that this is a level of victim-blaming that is beyond the pale, and should already be moddable as both jerkishness and misogyny. And yes, if it was about “people” rather than “women”, just jerkishness would be fine. There should be no need to point to a specific “don’t say rape victims deserve it” rule.
Being a jerk is an “actual rules violation”, and being a sincere jerk is no defence - hopefully any sort of misogyny will be modded even despite a poster actually being a sincere hater of women, for example, or homophobia would be modded despite a poster being a genuine homophobe.
Either use the “don’t be a jerk” rule where it really, glaringly is applicable, or remove the references to it in the rule if the mods refuse to apply it when it definitely, unequivocally works.
