...in the age of Weinstein...

preacher says women are to blame for rape because they are 'the cause of harassment and adultery'

Ahmed Bin Saad Al Qarni delivered his hate-filled sermon over Twitter
He said a woman leaving her house with perfume or make up is 'an adulteress'
The cleric claimed 'women instigate men to rape and assault them'
Saudi authorities earlier banned a planned pop concert by an Egyptian woman

Hollywood isn't that much different now, is it?

By the way, this DEMOCRAT seems to agree with the Saudi Cleric:
"I grew up in a time when it was as much the woman's responsibility as it was a man's — how you were dressed, what your behavior was," said Johnson, who represents Texas' 30th Congressional District. "I'm from the old school that you can have behaviors that appear to be inviting. It can be interpreted as such. That's the responsibility, I think, of the female. I think that males have a responsibility to be professional themselves."
