I have to say this!
My heart breaks for women who were raped & blamed!
For women on here to blame rape victims it is heartbreaking.
To say it was/is senseless to ruin lives by prosecuting some of these men for rape, that is awful! They raped someone, they didn't control themselves, they are rapists, sex offenders, a danger to others. They ruined their own lives, not the drunk female past out, or the prostitute that said no, or the woman walking down the street butt ass naked!
I can not believe women are ok w/a man sticking his fingers in a woman's vagina w/o permission! I can't not believe women feel their lives shouldn't be "ruined!"
My heart honestly hurts over the things I read! I work w/rape victims, no wonder they are embarrassed, ashamed, hate themselves, want to die! Some can not get past that, I'm thanking God I got past thinking like this so I could fully heal!
When are some of you women going to expect more from men? I'm afraid of how you are raising your boys if this is how you think, that is for sure!
To all the rape SURVIVORS remember it was not & is not your fault! I don't care if you were drunk, high, a prostitute or changed your mind. It is NOT your fault!
I have to say I find it ridiculous that so many can't get the point of the post.
Nobody has said that women shouldn't be cautious & careful & that we shouldn't teach prevention.
But the victim should't be blamed if she accepted a drink from a friend she trusted & got drugged or drank to much w/people she trusted.
Victim shouldn't be blamed if she came out of the grocery store & walked to her car & got raped bc she was parked in the back w/no street ligh.
Victim shouldn't be blamed if she changed her mind & said "stop, no I don't want this anymore."
Victim shouldn't be blamed if she slept w/a 1000 men.
Victim shouldn't be blamed if she walked into a dark alley alone.
Victim shouldn't be blamed if she got drunk & passed out.
If you taught your daughter prevention & she came home & said "mom I was raped, I'm so sorry my friend gave me a drink & drugged me;" are you going to blame her for her rape bc you taught her to never take a drink from anyone unless she saw it made & handed to her?
