yes a person is majorly responsible for their victimization if they had a choice in moving away from such a life.
I think that is the best way you can word it. If someone involves themselves in an environment or lifestyle to cause those types of things but made no effort to avoid it I believe they are responsible.
Ex. Someone gets insulted daily when they go by someplace. Yet chooses to continue going there despite the unwanted insults.
It may not be obvious but it should come off as a warning sign to avoid that. Least things escalate from insults to injury.
If the person is aware that this is a possibility, and maintains said lifestyle, they are fully responsible for their victimization.
Not some, entirely ! and in all cases.
If they choose that lifestyle, yes. If they can't escape the lifestyle, no.
"Do not blame the victim has been translated into do not explore the role of the victim." Excellent paper by Dr Zur, has some great points.
They can. I personally find it pretty hard to believe that some women are "raped" several times. by different men at different times in their lives. Seems to me that they may be putting themselves in that position
Homeless women especially
the legal definition of rape is so convoluted these days, that most men are probably guilty of raping several women without being aware of it. For example, if a man who is drunk, sleeps with a woman who is drunk without obtaining her consent prior to drinking, he can be charged with rape. In the eyes of the law, a man is responsible for his actions while drunk, but a woman can do what she wants, and not be responsible afterwards.
you are crazy-it's one paycheck away from being homeless. any one can be at any ae -race or circumstance. could happen to you before you knew it
Yes. You are referring to the FBI's definition of rape. Its so out of line with reality its not even funny.
Yes, a heavy responsibility. It's all about choices. Unfortunately, good people can also end up in the same position without choice.
Don't let the feminists here you say this. You will be labeled a traitor to your gender.
Here is one of my YouTube videos that I think answers this question.
The "victim blaming" part is toward the end.
no way-they were the victims..
Not always. It depends on the situation. I know that there are certain situations in which the blame is unjustly put on the victim.. by the victim, or others. I think that even saying that a victim is responsible for being a victim is quite insulting and selfish to say.
To what end?
They dont its a free world and people should be free to do as they please as long as its within the laws if people were less tempted and more self substained then bad things wouldnt happen so much but they dont
depends on the situation
I think the question is rhetorical. The answer is self-evident.
If you're talking about a drug user being killed because he was unable to pay back his massive loan to the drug dealer, then.... No. He/she is a victim. If you're talking about a woman/man who has been raped the also NO. He/she is a victim.
Would you say that to a black person who was beat up by a skinhead? Gee, maybe they shouldn't go around "being black"! (You are an idiot)
Is HE on EP to? lol
You're talking about victim blaming, not victim responsibility.
agree-what is with people-is there no compasion anymore?
The two things you described here are confusing
I have not been victimized. Want to understand
yes. but sometimes they are at the wrong place at the wrong time
