While you don't get our view, I don't getthis view. How is it victim blaming for me to closely watch my child, to teach her to trust her instincts, to teach her to not go off with strangers? How is it victim blaming to say that I will not leave my house open, or leave my house and walk the street after dark? I live in a high crime area, so will not leave the house for fear of an encounter with an unsavoury type. I will not allow my child to, either. I really cannot see how that is victim blaming???
