The whole responsibility of a rape is on the rapist!
Nothing a victim does causes them to be raped. It makes me angry, sad and concerned to name a few when you hear of people having to adjust their behaviour to keep themselves safe.
Also is the fact that no always means no. If someone does not have the ability to say no then the answer is still no. Silence should never be taken for consent. Surely these are things people should be taught at a young age!

its so sad that you have to keep doing these posts WCM.
I went back to a house, in a short skirt, drunk. It was 2am.
I danced around in my underwear and had more to drink...
then I was raped.
I guess I asked for it.
except i was 15, it was after my year 10 formal where i had just had my first real kisss....
it was my house and a family member.

Its so important that people know that rape happens in familys, in relationships, by people you know and that people know it happens to everyone from all walks of life. My family had, and have, NO idea what was happening under their upperclass, private schooling, sport playing, well-off roof when my BF stayed over

I don't understand why it's such a difficult concept to grasp. The only person responsible for a rape, is a rapist.
DP is a police officer, and in the short amount of time she's been on the job she's seen people who've been raped by partners, strangers, family members in parks, alley ways, their own bedroom and supermarkets.
And they're the people who come forward

He did all of that which I appreciated. It wasn't until a few years later after I left school that he turned from my 'buddy' to my 'enemy'.

It wasn't until I joined this forum that I came to realize how prevalent rape was. This is one of the few times that I have nothing to say. I'm sad beyond belief that this is the world we live in. What FREAK does that to somebody?
You'll have to excuse the iPhone auto correct. It sax!

I just want to clarify that I do not think anyone is responsible for their own rape, regardless of the circumstances.
I am just not comfortable putting my faith into rapists to not rape, which is why I choose to attempt to protect myself by other means. Whether or not my efforts are effective is another story, but at least I feel empowered for trying.
