    I was drugged with xanax at a party 4 years ago

    by a guy I had mutual friends with, my friend left me there and the next day they claimed it was MY FAULT. I wish I didn't tell anyone now.

    it's easy to blame the victim.

    Mainly because we have a tendency to blame ourselves. Also because to think of such an act is too much. Then there is "But we know him/her. they would never do such a thing."

    I've gotten frustrated with news stories,

    youtubers, youtube comments, Yahoo comments, friends, Facebook comments, family members, random conversations, or etc. When someone feels the need to blame the victim of a serious crime or try tear down credibility of said person. It's one of a few reasons why I have almost...

    Don't judge me, you can't handle half of what

    I've dealt with. There's a reason I do the things I do. There's a reason I am who I am. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/b1/66/78/b16678effb68e6846b37718d92305826.jpg

    I was just blamed for being raped,

    because I didn't report it at the time. I was called selfish because I never said anything, and for the fact that I didn't tell the guy raping me "no". This is getting ridiculous. If you've never been raped, then you have no right to tell the victim, that he/she did something...

    I Was Having A Conversation With Someone

    Just a stranger, we were talking. And he tried to make a point that rape is often the victim's fault. Now before I go on, a little bit about me. I have a lot of empathy, I can (unfortunately) feel how others feel even if I haven't experienced what they have. Another fun fact: I...

    I hate it when people blame the victim.

    It's never the victims fault. I don't care what they were doing, where they were or how they were dressed. A crime is a crime, and whoever did the crime is obviously at fault. The victim didn't do the crime, therefore it's not their fault. I don't understand why that's so hard...
