[If I leave my house and don’t lock my door, and then my house get’s robbed, isn’t it at least partially my fault that my house got robbed?]
It should be obvious that an analogy comparing possessions to human beings is flawed. Seriously, anon? People are not the same as the things that you keep in your house. You’re comparing rape, a violent crime that in many cases causes immense harm to the victim, with someone stealing your Wii. Get a fucking grip here.
Having said that, let me put it to you this way. If you let a friend in your house and he steals your shit, was that partially your fault? Because 38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance of the victim.
If you invite your significant other over to your house, and they rob you, was that your fault? Because 28% of victims are raped by an intimate partner.
If you live with your parent and your parent comes into your room, and takes your things, was that your fault? Because 7% of rapists are relatives of their victims.
Actually a recent study found even higher numbers than these. That study found that only 13.8% of rapes were committed by strangers. So tell me, how exactly would you like us to “lock our doors?” Should we invest in some chastity belts that we’ll wear 24/7? Should we all be armed at all times as someone suggested recently on this blog? Or are you saying people being attacked should be trying to physically fight back harder? Because while your house is an inanimate object that doesn’t give a fuck if someone has to bash in a window to get inside, PEOPLE ARE NOT INANIMATE OBJECTS.
In other words, fuck you and your shitty analogy.
