Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice, really got things stirred up when he suggested that young women should be held to a different standard than young men.

“My daughter, there’s no way in hell she’s going there, but with my sons, I hope they have a great time,” he proclaimed, prompting a chorus of protests from the ladies.

Making the point that there is a difference between men and women, he said, “The worst that can happen is some guy pulls a gun on them and they lose the 40 dollars in their swim trunks… the biggest problem with women is rape.”

Fox News contributor Jedediah Bila fired back that “boys can get alcohol poisoning, boys can wind up in a hospital bed.”

McInnes shrugged off her comment, saying, “The women there are human garbage whose parents don’t love them.”

“Who is raping the women?” asked Elizabeth Plank, executive social editor at PolicyMic. “It’s the men.”

Back and forth the debate went, with talk radio host Bill Cunningham supporting McInnes’ position, but the ladies weren’t about to concede, no matter how hard the men pressed.
