I don't feel that anything a person has done in their past justifies their rape or assault. No matter what they wear, how much they have had to drink, or their sexual history makes it ok to take advantage of them. No means no.

I believe there are things people can do to help prevent it and depending on your definition of their fault something could make rape more likely.
I wouldn't blame somebody for rape though as they didn't commit it and therefore is the person who non-consentually had sex with an individual.

Well then this might be over very quickly. I agree that there are obviously countermeasures one can take to keep themselves safer, but it is never the victims fault if they are attacked.

I don't think it is ever the victims fault if they are raped or assaulted. Yes, there are ways they can make themselves safer but no one asks for it.
