[TW: Rape and Victim Blaming]
Oh, yay. Another post trying to put the blame on Vivien instead of the person who tricked and assaulted her. “SHE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.” “SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TELL.” “STUPID WOMAN.”
Do you know cases like this actually happen? It’s called Rape by Deception/Rape by Fraud. Real victims go through this sort of thing, and instead of calling out her rapist (because the only reason this happened is because Tate decided to rape her), you decide that it’s Vivien’s fault (THE VICTIM’S FAULT). No. It is not and will never be the victim’s fault. It doesn’t matter if they have different bodies. You should not try to derail her assault and her trauma (trauma that represents real trauma real victims experience) and blow it off “because she should have known.”
That is rape culture, and that is gross.
