Woman's Facebook Post Goes Viral For Explaining Rape-Victim Blaming

Woman's Facebook Post Goes Viral For Explaining Rape-Victim Blaming

All too often the victims of sexual assault are blamed for crimes committed against them.

No means no: simple as. It doesn't matter how a woman is dressed or whether she flirted with you: that's not consent.

Now, a woman has taken to Facebook to point out how ridiculous victim blaming is.

Bree Wiseman posted an image of her dog sitting next to a steak. She captioned the image pointing out how he wasn't eating it because she told him 'no' and he got that.

She said : "To the people that say women get raped due to the way they are dressed. This is my dog. His favorite food is steak. He is eye level with my plate. He won't get any closer because I told him no. If a dog is better behaved than you are, you need to reevaluate your life. Feel free to share, my dog is adorable."

The post has been shared nearly 300,000 times.

One commenter said: "Thank you for this! So true in the context you are posting and beyond! Your dog understands how to respect boundaries - why can't people? Awesome dog by the way."

Another added: "It is not true rape is an act of sex, it is an act of power and domination over the other person. It has nothing to do with how a person is dressed it is all about the control that they have in making the other person do something that they don't want to do."

The police recently released a video explaining consent based around the idea that if you're still struggling with consent then it's easier just imagine instead of initiating sex you're making them a cup of tea.

Rape happens to people of all genders and sexualities. About 92 percent of victims are female and eight percent male and most rapes occur between people who know each other in some way.

Approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales alone every year and it is estimated that only 15% of women who are raped even go to the police.
