The study of victimology has gained a lot of ground in recent decades. However, some have taken it too far. Sure, the vast majority of violent encounters are initiated by the victim, for example. Much can be learned about a crime and an offender by studying the victim. For whatever reason, many have taken that to mean that victims can be blamed for crimes. Our biggest problem with this particular issue (of sex offense) is that our nation is acting much like a Catholic school girl after graduation; free to break the chains and run rampant, with no idea of moderation and responsibility. Sex is a taboo in America, which is why everyone is so interested in it. We will always have a huge sex crime problem so long as we think that the best way to educated children is through abstinence only programs and pretend that sex is a dirty little sin, rather than a biological neccessity. Why do you think violence feels good to watch and participate in? Because you aren't supposed to do it. Drugs, alcohol, risky sexual activity...it's all the same.
