Chrissie Hynde Thinks Her Rape Comments Sound Like ‘Common Sense’ | Music News
Recently, The Washington Post caught up with Chrissie Hynde in the aftermath of her rape comments. Just to clarify, the Pretenders lead-singer thought it possible for a woman to shoulder the blame for their own rape if they dress or act sexually. Many people had a serious issue with that ideology, including Jackie Fuchs (formerly Jackie Fox), but Hynde is sticking to her guns.
“Do I regret saying it? I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about it”, she said, but then, when her original comment was read to her, she added: “Sounds like common sense”. She then mentions the recent refugee tragedy where a toddler was found dead on a Turkish beach: “These are the heartbreaking images we have and we’re talking about millions of displaced persons and people whose families have been destroyed and we’re talking about comments that I allegedly made about girls in their underwear”.
If she’s implying that people should care about the refugee incident, they do. If she’s implying that people should care more about it, they probably still do, but it’s possible to care about two things, even several things at once. That’s common sense, too.
