    Why are the victims always blame?

    Sexual assault is one of the most egregious violations of one's body. Survivors deal with the after effects in their own way. To insist that there is a "correct" way for a survivor to process their experience including sharing with others, reporting, seeking justice, or any other aspect is atrocious and is, itself, re-victimization. To insist that not only did one have to suffer the assault on their most private and protected sense of bodily integrity but furthermore, because their body was victimized, they must cede further control over their body and life is nothing short of an second assault. Sexual assault survivors often must re-live horrendous trauma if they do make the decision to report the crimes committed against them and no one other than the survivor should have any say over how or when that takes place.
