Focus of the blame.

He beats her. "Why is she still with him?"
She was raped. "Yeah, right." ; "She was asking for it."

Why is this? Why is our automatic annoyance toward the victim?

If a male was raped or being beaten, would the blame still be shifted?

Are there other situations besides rape and abuse where this happens?



I have lots of thoughts on this, I'd like to hear yours.
