"[P]eople who have been sexually assaulted are not somehow responsible for preventing their assailant from assaulting other people."

Marianne Kirby; "You Owe It To Other Women": Why you DON’T Owe It To Anyone Else To Report Your Rape

I don’t think people think of women who are already marginalized when they say these things. It’s much harder for them to come forward; and they need to take care of themselves. Additionally, just like it’s not women’s job to avoid rapes it is not our job to stop the assailants.
