It’s really upsetting… no, appalling, when a victim of rape, domestic abuse or whatever other form of sexual violence speaks out only to be met with doubting, blaming and shaming.
“Why did you go to his house?”
“Why did you drink?”
“Your jeans were too tight?”
“You should have worn a longer dress”
“You shouldn’t have smiled at him. You encouraged him”
“It wasn’t really rape. You didn’t struggle”
The most stupid of all…
“Guys can’t get raped. *followed by laughter*”
We’ve heard this bull so many times that even the victims start to believe it.
