Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
This isn't remotely the same thing.
If your kid doesn't do their homework, and you punish them for it. (The punishment being subjective; talking to them, grounding, whatever)
Then again, they don't do their homework. Do you give them the same punishment? Worse punishment?
Then again, they don't do their homework, then what?
How is that comparable to blaming a woman for what she was wearing when she was raped?

Sounds like this kid had it easy.
I grew up on a farm, I did more work before 6am than what this kid got as punishment. Then there was cutting firewood. We always got 5 cords cut, split, and stacked each year. The occasional ditch to be dug etc. and as if all that wasnt enough I worked for neighbors doing all that work that I hated at home so I would have money to party with, buy drums, guitars, amps, truck etc.
