Yeah, people get that, but talking about safety directly after an assault has happened is crass and demonstrates a lack of decency.
Alright, what's the appropriate waiting period after a crime before we're allowed to discuss proper safety precautions at major events?
It's not like we're having this discussion on the girls Facebook page. Her recovery and well-being are not impacted by people elsewhere having a discussion about safety. I'm sure she's got all the sympathy and support she could hope for during this shit.
Also, come to think of it, when the fuck else are we supposed to have the conversation on this site? I'm not going to go back and dig up this post a month from now and expect people to read anything I've posted. On Blue's, we can only reasonably discuss a topic on the post that actually brings it up. The forum part of the site isn't exactly popular.
