Furor Over Binge Drinking Advice to Young Women

Emily Yoffe (Slate's Dear Prudence) wrote an article a couple of days ago advising college aged women not to drive heavily as a way of reducing their risk of being sexually assaulted. I didn't think much of the article in so much as I thought it was just a well-written article advocating good common sense practices. But boy, Yoffe is being pushed through the wood chipper by other writers screaming that she is "blaming the victim". IMO she is doing no such thing at all. Salon, The Atlantic, HuffPo and others are piling on. I'm stunned.
