Don’t Rape Me, Rape Her Instead

Rapists are not significantly influenced by modifying the behavior of potential rape victims (i.e. everyone, particularly individuals who are least likely to report the crime and especially likely to be blamed for “provoking” rapists). Being raped is not a choice; raping is.

  1. Very true. The blame never lies with the survivor of rape, but always with the one doing the raping. It is their behaviour that society ought to spend time and effort trying to modify.

    1. Exactly, and thank you for commenting. If our efforts were directed to shaming rapists rather than the people they’ve raped, we could meaningfully discourage the behavior.
