A California judge said, "If someone doesn't want to have sexual intercourse, the body shuts down. The body will not permit that to happen unless a lot of damage is inflicted, and we heard nothing about that in this case. That tells me that the victim in this case, although she wasn't necessarily willing, she didn't put up a fight. And to treat this case like the rape cases that we all hear about is an insult to victims of rape. I think it's an insult. I think it trivializes a rape."
The assumption that women are responsible for engaging in risky behavior that can lead to becoming victims of rape or sexual assault underlies much of the questions.

The most interesting information to us is that the rapist actually have the courage to blame the victim and that some people who aren't the rapist blame the victim too.
The women who report being sexually assaulted mostly find themselves victimized again by a criminal injustice system where they are treated like they're responsible.
Men and women are taught that women should be sexually available. They are also taught that the value of a woman is measured by the sexual attractiveness of her.
