All her fault… rape and the blame game

Posted by irresponsibility

Stumbled across a post on The Curvature which neatly articulates much of what underpinned my post Reporting Rape – A problem of Perception?.

Women are still viewed “unrapeable” becaue they’re too drunk, too scantily clad, too out-on-their-own-on-a-dark-night, too promiscuous or, even, too young. Infuriatingly, blaming the victim is still the default stance both in the justice system and in the ruthless court of public opinion.
