The nonprofit pop culture watchdog organization Bitch Media today issued an official “Ye Old Douchebag Decree” to Jim Foley, calling him “Vice President of Victim Blaming, the University of Montana.”
Jim Foley more than earns a Douchebag Decree for his actions surrounding the sexual allegations in Missoula. Instead of taking these terribly sad circumstances as an opportunity to stand with survivors and hold those responsible accountable, he furthered the injustice.
The author argues that when it comes to rape, “we should all be willing to call out anyone who is complicit in the tolerance of sexual assault—both perpetrators and those who revictimize and blame survivors. This means you, Jim Foley. Douchebag.”
Bitch Media works to point out the insidious, everyday sexism of popular culture, propose alternatives, and celebrate pro-woman, pro-feminism pop culture products instead.
