Why do people tend to blame victims for their own sexual assualts?


Rape shaming is a real thing and the case involving Bill Cosby has shown this ugly fact loud and clear. What are your thoughts about this?

    I agree about personal responsibility. I have read comments criticizing the women involved in this case. These have been on social media but not direct articles. You make a great point about blame versus not believing. Maybe I have misinterpreted.

    Problems with one's wife are not an excuse to be a rapist.

    ?? So women who dress in a "provocative" manner are asking for it? No, how a woman dresses is not an "invitation" and is not consent.
