Im discussing with no emotional obstacle, bringing that would obstruct the logic in the discussion.
I'm curious about something. You are saying victim hold absolutely 0% responsibility in the situation. So in another scenario, would the rapists done
the same thing to another person(completely different) just replaced the victim's place, in the circumstance or did they targeted this victim in
If you answer is NO, that they would not done that to another completely different person, then the victim does hold some sort of responsibility the
lead up to the actual event that caused the rapist to target that particular person. Although that action was caused by the rapist.
Telling people you hold 0% responsibility for something happening to you is a bad idea imo, no matter how small of a responsibility that would be
Some rape victims did act irresponsibly but rape(true rape) is never the victims fault
for the crime of rape, the rapists has 100% the blame and the raped 0% the blame
did some rape victims facilitate the rape? some might have but they did not cause it
therefore the whole blame is on the rapist
The question boils down to the age old question, is ignorance sin?
was it a sin for rape victims to be naive and trustful?
there is really no clear answer
regardless, the sin(if there is one) of the raped would only be of ignorance and not related to the rape
the rapist is the one who takes all the blame for the rape
being ignorant to a possible bad outcome is nothing to feel ashamed
all of us were naive and ignorant at one point
rape victims just had the bad luck to be naive and ignorant next to a rapist
when bad things happen, it is human nature to think of the "what if" scenarios
what if I had stayed home that night, what if I didn't drink that much
in that same way, the people who hear the rape stories think
what if she/he had stayed home that night, what if he/she didn't drink that much
It is just the human way to deal with atrocious events
just know that no one is really blaming the victim
it is just our minds trying to cope
if someone is indeed blaming the victim of the crime of rape
then they either lack common sense or have hidden agendas
