Gray Rape Victim Blaming (With Music And Lyrics)

Cosmopolitan Magazine isn't so cosmopolitan and bright thanks to an article in the September issue by Laura Sessions Stepp, who has decided that the cause of many rapes is -- you got it -- the victim.

Recycling, don't you love it! What's old is new again.

Same old product but it's got a great new name. Generic rape doesn't sell, but gray rape does.

Gray is the new real.

Would you buy blaming the victim for real rape? NOOOoooo!

Would you buy blaming the victim for gray rape? YEEEsssss!

Marketing works, yeah!

In Cosmopolitan Laura Sessions Stepp has turned gray into the most fashionable color. All the benefits for the rapist but with none of the consequences.

Rape light, if you will. Same great exploitation but less condemning.

Unless you're the victim, you horrid creature. How dare you lead the boys and men astray?

Let's all sing a perky song of gray rape prevention! (sung to the tune of Michael Row Your Boat Ashore)


Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah

My mothers and sisters are all to blame, hallelujah
My fathers and brothers are all a hoard, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah

The blaming is deep and the blaming is wide, hallelujah
Milk and honey on the blaming side, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah

Gray's river is chilly and cold, hallelujah
Chills her body but not men's soul, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah
Girlies lead the men astray, hallelujah

So as you sing the song of gray rape prevention, remember: Those hapless gray rapists aren't to blame since they would never rape girls who don't do something wrong.

Women who want you to buy their books would never steer you wrong.

So you girls who decide to save yourselves until after your wedding day while condemning those girls and women who become victims of gray rape remember not to do anything wrong on your wedding night or any day or night thereafter. Unless you too want to risk becoming a victim of gray rape.

As with all gray rapes, it will be all your fault.

Oh, what a wonderful gray world we live in!

Not!

Down with gray rape! Up with respect for everyone! Even those few who aren't perfect.
