Chrissie Hynde: ‘If You Don’t Want To Entice A Rapist, Don’t Wear High Heels So You Can’t Run From Him’
Chrissie Hynde believes she is at fault for her own rape when she was 21 and is being criticized for suggesting that it can be a woman’s fault if she becomes a victim of a sexual assault. “This was all my doing” she says in her new book Reckless: My Life As A Pretender. “Technically speaking, however you want to look at it, this was all my doing and I take full responsibility. You can't f*** about with people, especially people who wear ‘I Heart Rape’ and ‘On Your Knees’ badges... those motorcycle gangs, that's what they do” she told the Sunday Times Magazine. “You can't paint yourself into a corner and then say whose brush is this? You have to take responsibility. I mean, I was naive...” Her comments have drawn fire from social media and rape victim support groups.
