My mom and I had a long argument last night about rape and victim blaming and in the end we just both ended up pissed off... I'm still mad. My dad later told me I need to just avoid bringing up subjects like that around her, or if she tries to start the argument to ignore it, because it won't help change her mind and we'll just end up mad. But dammit, subjects like that piss me off and I don't WANT to not argue. After all, she's wrong, and I can't abide by that! ;)

Note, since it's being asked a lot: My side of the argument was that it is NEVER the victim's fault, and it is ALWAYS the rapist's fault. Hers was that "well, sometimes it's their fault for wearing such-and-such or being in such-and-such place".

So TQC, what subject do you have extreme difficulty not arguing/bitching/getting angry over when it's brought up? Do you try to ignore it, like my dad suggests, or do you fight anyway?
