The difference is you call it "naive and ignorant", i call it individual responsibility.
If i go to sleep leaving the door open, should i partially be blame for the theft? i made the decision to leave door open, the robber is always the
constant, another absolute variable. Only thing i can do is reduce the probability of my things getting stolen.
but you are assuming the the would be victim knew that her actions would lead to rape
if you knew leaving the window open would end up in a robbery and still did then you do share some of the blame, but not the blame of the crime (very
important distinction here)
the crime is still carried by only the robber
but what if you didn't know that leaving the window open would lead to being robbed?
what if you didn't know the robber is always a constant?
I doubt rape victims knew that rapists were always a constant
most rapes are done by people who the victim knew, therefore trusted
I stand by the "naive and ignorant" argumen
meant door not "window" still the same thing
In quiet towns some people leave their doors open
are they all to blame if they are robbed?
when all their lives they left the door open and no robbery happened
in other towns people used to leave the cars unlocked
are they all to blame if the car is stolen?
sorry for the massive edits
