to think that rape is NOT the only crime

(105 Posts)

that blames the victim? I keep reading this and think that actually most victims of crime are blamed to an extent. Did you leave your windows unlocked? Yes, then we're not paying out on the insurance for the burglary. Why were you walking down a dark alley with an expensive mobile phone on display? - of course you're asking to get mugged. Did you give someone else your password? Of course you are the victim of fraud. Did you watch your suitcase every second in the airport? No, then you allowed someone to plant those drugs in your case. I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying that it happens. I don't understand it when people say that this only happens in rape cases.

I have no legal training sabrina but I believe the technical term for what you're doing is 'pissing into the wind' wink

I imagine it was reported for perpetuating victim-blaming rape myths

Okay, if you say you, we believe you.

I think you'll find that's another myth.
