A female judge has warned women who get drunk they are putting themselves in danger of being targeted by rapists.
Lindsey Kushner QC said women were entitled to "drink themselves into the ground" but their "disinhibited behaviour" could put them in danger.
Judge Kushner made the courtroom plea as she jailed a man for six years who raped a girl he met in a Burger King in Manchester city centre last year.
But, Rape Crisis slammed her comments as "outrageous" and "misguided".
Yvonne Traynor, chief executive of Rape Crisis South East, said: "As a judge and a woman she should know better.
"The only person who is responsible for rape, is the rapist.
"Women are yet again being blamed for rape."
The judge spoke out as she retired from the criminal bench.
I really quite fail to see what Rape Crisis are getting their knickers in a twist about. Surely it's only common sense to advise women that by getting drunk they are increasing their chances of being raped. The days when, if a woman waiting at a bus stop got into a car driven by a stranger who offered a lift was accused of 'asking for it' are long gone but surely women have some responsibility for their own safety and falling out of nightclubs at 3.00 a.m.drunk and incapable is certainly increasing their chances of some misfortune or other, even if it's only getting run over by a passing driver.
