Rape? It's the fault of the victims, say 50 per cent of women

It really does make you wonder, doesn't it?

It’s kind of like the Americans who don’t want a mosque by ground zero…….It’s our fault for making the Muslims mad if we get attacked.
The wrong doing is done by the perpetrator not by those who might have upset or supposedly led them on.

I appreciate everything you've written here, as I'm sure do all who'll read it

It's a very complex and emotion-arousing issue, isn't it ? Which is why the poll results (50% of women blame female rape victims) are worthy of discussion and analysis

We could also add to what you've said by including the mature-aged Australian woman who was drugged and raped on a cruise. The rapists stuck together and denied all charges for a long time, claiming the victim had been willing.

So they not only stole her dignity and rights (and consciousness !) when she was alive -- they defamed her when she was dead and unable to defend herself.

Imagine being the husband and child of that poor woman, trying to cope with her death --unable to even bury her with dignity but being instead compelled to wait until the coroner had concluded examination -- and having to listen to and see the lurid headlines where she was accused by several men of being a willing party to drunken sex with all of them

That really was a shameful case. P&O have alot to answer for. At least women are now aware of what kind of danger they could be in if they go on one of their cruises.
Nothing about her made me think she was into orgies or drugs.. yet they still tried to put that spin on it. The more I heared about them the more I wondered just how many victims they left in their wake. I believe these kind of gang rapes are organised and planned. Sick world we live in.

Been awhile but here is an update on this specific case that was previously discussed. The men who perpetrated this disgusting crime (and I doubt it was their first time) dragged her name through the mud yet she has now been vindicated: Brimble 'unknowingly drugged'
More than eight years after Dianne Brimble's sordid and humiliating cruise ship death, a coroner has confirmed what her family knew all along.

"She was unknowingly drugged by unscrupulous individuals who were intent on denigrating her for their own gratification," Coroner Jacqueline Milledge found on Tuesday.

In 2007, Ms Milledge abruptly ended a 66-day inquest into Ms Brimble's death, but she resumed the inquiry soon after three men had been convicted in relation to the case but not in relation to the death.

Ms Milledge found the alcohol-affected 42-year-old mother of three children died of the effects of the illegal drug GHB, also known as fantasy, on board a South Pacific P&O cruise ship in September 2002.

"The manner of death is the administration of that drug by a known person," she said at Balmain Local Court.

Outside court, her ex-husband Mark Brimble and her partner at the time of her death, David Mitchell, said they were pleased with the findings about the mother of their children.

"Somebody has finally got it right," Mr Brimble said.

I wanted to post this as it's nice to see justice being done and truth being honoured. What happened to her was bad enough.. but the nightmare her family were forced to go through after her death was absolutely disgusting. It's nice that they can finally put her to rest and get on with their lives.

Circumstances, Actions, Consequences, If we all lived by this method, life would be a better and safer place. Sure, not all rape victims deserve to be raped, in fact none of them do but they do have a responsibility for there actions like we all do. eg - Circumstance-go to a party with people u dont know, Action-Drink alcohol and get drunk, Consequence-Maybe get raped, changing any of that method will have a different outcome, my opinion anyway is that rape is a bad thing.

BS. in my opinion.
sure you get those situations where she's at a party, gets drunk, the other person is drunk too. they end up sleeping together and she calls it rape the next morning.

but I'm pretty sure that a lot of other rape victims don't walk around like

I guess it kinda depends on the situation is all.

Maybe if rapists just got turned into eunuchs there would be a slight fall in the number of sicko freaks who think its ok?

Either way, there is only ever one party to blame for rape.
I don't care if some girl is strutting around like a porn star, no always means no.

Rape is abhorrently inhumane. Its cruel and no one deserves it..

in saying that, If a lady, deliberately wears scantily clad clothing in public, with the sole purpose of enticing male attention using sexual means.. then yes, she is attracting the type of people who are likely to rape.
It is not their fault, but they are pushing the envelope when they wear sexy, small, see through outfits in public.

That tends to happen when you cry wolf a lot.

It's a shame though, I don't think Rick Santorum taking away internet porn will help any either.
