Oh jeez. You’re wondering why they didn’t wait longer…while simultaneously questioning why they waited? The logic in that is just..not there. At all.
It never fails to blow my mind when people try to dictate the way victims should have reacted and then proceed to impose their own theoretical decisions about a situation they can’t even comprehend onto the victim in order to rationalize their often uneducated bias. THAT is rape culture in action. THAT is exactly why victims don’t come forward. All you have to do is look at your own behavior to explain why they didn’t come forward.
So…. I guess we’re done here. I understand that ignorance is bliss, but please… open your eyes.
