I didn't know this mindset still existed but....My uncle's SO's 13 yr old daughter got raped by a 19 yr old acquaintance last week. my aunt's response was that it was the child's fault because she wears low cut tops and tight jeans. I was dumbfounded that she first as a woman,and second as a rape survivor herself,would have this attitude! Does this attitude against rape victims still exist out there,or is my aunt a dying breed?
It does sound bad from your aunt, as a survivor of rape myself I can tell you it may something to do with what she went through herself. Maybe she feels like what happened to her happened for those reasons, maybe she blames herself. I understand where she's coming from because I feel that way, I cover up because when I was getting raped by family members I remember the interest in my breast and my legs, those two things now that I am older I don't like to show. I rarely wear skirts, I cover up my breast..it may be a mental thing. Though I don't condone her statements, I think they are very insensitive, no woman in her right mind or child for that matter "asks" to be raped by the things she says or the clothes she wears, it's not her fault.
