Recently, presidential candidate John Kasich fielded a question from a young college student about what he will do as president regarding sexual misconduct on college campuses. A video of what Kasich said can be found at ABC News.
WOMAN: "Being that I am a young female college student, What are you going to do in office as President to help me feel safer and more secure regarding sexual violence, harassment, and rape."
KASICH: "In our state. We think that when you enroll, you ought to absolutely know that if something happens to you along the lines of sexual harassment or whatever, you have a place to go, where there is a confidential reporting, where there is an ability for you to access a rape kit, where that is kept confidential, but where it gives you the opportunity to be able to pursue justice, after you have had some time to reflect on it all."
KASICH: "And we are in a process of making sure that all higher education in our state, and this ought to be done in the country, that our co-eds know exactly what the rules are, what the opportunities are, what the confidential policies are, so that you are not vulnerable at risk and can be preyed upon."
KASICH: "I have two sixteen year old daughters, and I don't even like to think about it."
WOMAN: "It's sad that it's something I have to worry about just walking..."
KASICH: "I'll also give you one bit of advice. Don't go to parties where there's a lot of alcohol."
Some people have been critical of his remark. Could anyone help explain why his advice might be offensive and how he could have worded his advice?
