BULLSHIT. I dress like a guy and never ever show my goddamn cleavage nor legs, never as in never and yet I get degrading comments from just minding my won fucking business or walking on the streets and I was even raped by someone that was supposed to be my friend. A big GO FUCK YOURSELVES to those that victim-blame, fuck I hate those monsters with avid vehemence!
I love that you keep making these. Thank you for speaking for those who've been harmed.
I feel immensely lucky that my experience with the police was good. Then again, my therapist helped me set it up, and the first cop I spoke to was a survivor herself. (She told me her story in a calm voice, after I had finished telling her and was curled up in a miserable little ball. As she left, she told my therapist that I'd be okay.) The second cop was another woman who said, "Asshole," a couple of times as I gave the report.
I didn't get any legal success, but they were definitely the difference between a miserable encounter and an empowering one.
urgh I have been accused of 'leading someone on' people don't realise how damaging that can be. You get the shame and humiliation of this happening to you, and then on top of that people just dismiss it as your fault. Which makes you think it is your fault, which causes a LOT of inner arguments, and usually makes you blame yourself for other incidents - vicious circle.
The law is so obsessed with saving people rom false accusations that if you report a rape it honestly feels as if you are the one on trial... As it's usually down to your word against theirs too they brng in character witnesses to vouch for who great and amazin your attacker is and how they could never hurt anyone, while at the same time picking appart your history to find any and all flaws. Not to mention how the general public sees it, a few months ago a survey in Scotland showed that most people (male and female) think that the majority f rape victims were at least partly responsible for what happened!
and prison inmates are just begging for butt love too I'm sure. That's terrible! Even if you are married you say no and it's No! It is a form of domestic abuse that even if it sounds silly try being the one in the situation your opinion changes really quickly. But yeah I had no idea it was like that.
