Are any people (as in those being raped) at fault when they are raped in any circumstance?
No women are at fault....Rape isn't even about Sex, it's about power. He knows he is robbing your soul. They will rape a woman weither she walk around naked or clothed from head to toe usually it is a hate crime against women related to their own personal issues and no woman should ever feel like it is her fault. When I was 14 my mother and I took a self defense class so I could be better prepaired in protecting myself because my mom warned me the only person you can truely trust is yourself. She told me to stay away from partying where drugs and alchol would be involved and said to me no one has a right to touch you or violate you, but it won't stop a person from trying. just always try to be aware of your surroundings. I can't imagine anything worse to go through.
Have had it happen twice - never never again would I want to have that feeling again!! It took me a long time to realize it wasn't my fault. I don't wish that upon anyone!
Quoting RhondaVeggie:Not 100% but there is an element of personal responsibility in many cases. Some women think that all the responsibility should fall on the man but we need to realize that there are guys out there who will rape given the chance, always has been and always will be. If you get drunk or stoned and pass out alone in an alleyway or a strange guys bedroom then you are placing yourself in danger.
No. No. No.
And anyone who put blame on a rape victim are fucked up.
Thats is not your fault at all. No means NO. Whether you've done it once or a thousand times, even if you're in the middle of doing it and you want it to stop, HE should have stoped. Please don't blame yourself for what your POS ex did.
Quoting Anonymous:I had sex with an ex of mine recently and it started consensual but then I kept telling him to stop and he didnt.i dont consider it rape, but I know it was my fault.
This, but I'm still working on realizing it's not my fault. I was 8 and was at a frends house playing like any normal 8 year old.
Quoting Anonymous:yes i was raped. no it wasnt my fault. it took years for me to realize it though

That does not give someone the right to rape someone
