  • You can't blame the victim

    The only people who are ever to blame in the case of a rape case is and will always be the rapist however, with standard sexism and the need to protect men's reputations at all costs, women's pleas are drowned out in a chorus of insults from people calling her a slut, whore, or jealous attention seeker. People don't seem to grasp the emotional toll that admitting that you've been raped has on a victim. Furthermore, when the justice system tramples their trust in the system, it only adds to their sense of hopelessness and distrust when no one believes them. (Watch the Hunting Ground on netflix. It really highlights the victim blaming aspect of sexual assault.)
