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.
You covered the points that I was going to mention: generally it's disbelief, not blame; also some people interpret acknowledgement of personal responsibility as blame, sadly. Nicely put! :-)
I think people can stay victims in their own minds because they never acknowledge their own part in the process of them being hurt.
I was raped at 14 years old. I still have trouble deciphering between blame and owning ones own lose of power.
KrystalD, Sorry to hear about your experience.
Oftentimes when things happen to us when we're young we're not wise enough to recognize potential danger signs.
We're much more trusting of people and situations.
It was not your fought.
Problems with one's wife are not an excuse to be a rapist.
