Ruiz, Peter. “Rape Victims Take the Blame.” The Sandspur. N.p., 20 Mar. 2014. Web. 02 Oct. 2016. http://www.thesandspur.org/rape-victims-take-blame/
This article is not a peer reviewed source, but it is a post in Rollin’s Colleges newspaper, The Sandspur. This article was written around 2 years ago, by a male student named Peter Ruiz. This article discusses the backwards thinking of society and how the victims often take the blame. Ruiz does a great job at explaining facts about most rapes, including the percentage of males and females who report rape, and the percentage of male’s who are the ones accused of raping. He also goes over what consent is and how after if one is impaired and says yes it doesn’t count. He also talks about the “slut shaming” society, and how it extends to include shaming one for what they are wearing, not just who they are sleeping with. Either way, it is not acceptable to slut shame in any form. He also uses this as an example for one of the reasons why people blame the victim. People often say things like “oh she is such a slut,” or “she’s already slept with 10 so its not his fault that they had sex.” These types of phrase put the blame in the wrong place. The victim should never be blamed.
