Food for thought… If we treated robbery victims like rape victims

I’ve often thought this very same thing. Another part of the privileged and powerful people defining and communicating everything and where it stands in our culture. Devaluing women and their sexual autonomy by blaming and shaming shows where the privileged and powerful rank women, at the bottom, where we question rape, but not other lesser crimes.

    • Hi Kirsten,

      I agree. Secondary wounding is such an insidious and evil part of being a survivor. And how our society targets survivors of sexual assault and abuse to blame them, in my opinion, is unacceptable and should be unacceptable to all.

      Good and healing thoughts to you.
