There is also another...branch off of this. Rape victims. People saying how it's the women's fault that she got raped because she dressed to provocatively and was obviously "asking for it". Sorry, wrong again. It does not matter what a women is wearing. No one asks to get raped. Even if she is your girlfriend, fiance, or wife, shoot even if you're in the middle of having sex, the second she says "no" you're raping her. She doesn't even have to say no for it to be rape. Why do we focus on blaming the victim? I don't know. But I do know this is why a lot of rape cases go unreported. Because the girls are afraid they will be blamed, or they're afraid they won't be believed. Well why wouldn't someone believed that you were raped? Because of false rape charges. How do false rape charges happen? A common example:
And underage girl has sex with a guy over 18. Her parents find out and she doesn't want to get into trouble or have her parents think she's a bad kid, so she yells rape on him.
Because of claims like these, rape victims are afraid to come forward, afraid that they won't be taken seriously.
The photo below is from the Slut Walk. This girl was wearing that outfit when she was raped. She obviously asked for it right?
Below are some photos I've found from year's past Slut Walks:
There are plenty more I could post, but you get the idea. For those interested, Slut Walk DC 2012 will be held August 11, 2012. Visit their facebook page here for more information.
