This picture is brought to you by The Society Pages and it gave me life this morning. Victim blaming is always a disgusting argument tool and I still find it hard to believe that it so often happens in rape. I think when you even bring up the question of how the victim was dressed, you’ve lost sight of the point. When you bring up the victim’s sexual history (i.e. “how many partners does she or he have on a regular basis) then you’ve lost sight of the point. I believe in safety measures and precautions but I also believe that it is never the victim’s fault for being raped. I also believe that certain vocations are more vulnerable to rape than others. Nevertheless, rape is never ok, there is never an excuse and the blame should never go on victim. No one victim is more “worthy” of our sympathy or empathy than the other. Not for any reason. The End.
