Why does society insist upon policing women’s bodies when they should be targeting men’s behaviour?

Like that is just baffling me right now.
That society blames a woman because she wasn’t ‘covered up’ or was ‘asking for it’ where as a man bares none of the blame for his actions because ‘boys will be boys’

It’s perpetuating the idea that women should be apologetic about their existence and be ashamed of themselves.

Volcanic islands merge in Pacific Ocean

A volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean has merged with its neighbour to form one landmass, the US space agency says.

The merged island lies some 1,000km (621mi) south of Tokyo, the result of eruptions on the seafloor that have spewed enough material to rise above the water line.

In November 2013, a new island sprouted near to Nishino-shima, another volcanic landmass that last expanded in the 70s. Four months later, the new and old islands are one island.
