I’m going to gender stereotype a bit here, but I’m both jealous and proud that you said this.

I agree, Stella. Society implies the woman is responsible in some way and we buy into that. We feel guilty for being the victim! We are ashamed for something that is not our fault or initiated by us. I think most women have been in similar situations and we say and do nothing. Undeserved shame wins the battle over anger and morality.
