Blaming a victim of rape is somewhat like blaming the victim of any other violent crime. This is not to trivialize it, or to even make the parallel of women’s bodies=property. But think about how absurd it would be to so many people if we started holding property owners accountable for property theft. Property is serious to so many people. They would be up in arms about it, right? Well, we should be up in arms about victim blaming too. Our bodies should be taken seriously, in fact more serious than any material object. Survivors deserve much better than this.
