That women should be more aware of the situations they are in, and try to avoid risks.
How many of you would say that it was MY fault, if I allowed my young teenager to go to a party with people I didnt know, consume alcohol and walk/make her way home alone... and while she was in this situation that I allowed, she was injured/raped by someone. It wasnt her fault, she is a child... but as an adult who is responsible for her, I would have to take some of the blame, RIGHT?
So, why? Why as an adult with that responsibility for MYSELF, I no longer have to take those precautions of knowing who Im with, maintaining a level of sobriety, and traveling in numbers? And if something were to happen to me while I was in that situation... no one would be to blame except the person who abused me?
Obviously, very few rapes/assaults happen in those situations, but why chance it? I mean, if you'd feel responsible for allowing someone else to put themselves in that situation, why wouldnt you feel at least somewhat responsible for putting yourself in that situation?
(another obviously, obviously, the person ultimately responsible for the abuse/rape is teh person abusing/raping... And no matter the situation that the victim allowed themselves to be in, they should seek full legal repurcutions for that person. Along with therapy and medical attention.... Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world and you are much more likely to be raped or assaulted under your own roof, but maintaining a level of awareness when you ARE out on the town is still important)
