And all of that would be true except nobody here has all the facts and yet the main point of the thread still starts with what the victim did or didn't do.
I just find it troubling on many levels. I am not saying that anybody here condones what happened to her. I am not even saying anybody is truly victim blaming/shaming. People want to discuss it, fine. I am just noticing how "education" comes first and "sympathy" comes second in the conversation....and it's a bit sad from my point of view. For all we know she did absolutely nothing wrong or "high risk" and still fell victim to some asshole. "Ran off" is very vague. If I "run off" to the bathroom shouldn't I feel fairly safe? Not enough info for "education", at least I don't have enough info. Obviously you folks feel differently and I can respect that because I don't think it comes out of some sort of negative place. I guess I just process it differently.
