Victim Vibe

Yet again, not being lazy. Just in awe of better writing.

Please take the gender bias as it (hopefully) is: a woman talking about her experiences as a woman. Men are not immune to this kind of treatment, though as we don’t tend to hear about it you could end up believing they are.

Oh, it’s easy enough to blame victims, to count back the steps to any sexual disaster a woman has survived and hold her nose to the various mistakes she made that led her to doom. If a harassed or raped woman isn’t “slut-shameable” during the given grievance, then the next logical step is to bring her fragility on trial. Everyone looks at her and asks if she was indeed inviting that dreaded “wrong attention”.
