    I think somewhat so. Particularly with rape victims. Look at what happened in Steubenville.

    It's not a problem unless you think that victims carry absolutely no responsibility, which I do not believe.

    I think Newton said it best about what every action has.

    Not true. People who do for themselves, take responsibility for themselves and want to keep what they have earned are the Evil ones that victimize everyone else in Liberal land.

    Re: Blaming the Victim

    It depends on what 'victim' you are referring to.

    Of violent crimes, no.
    Of discrimination? Iffy.
    Of racism? I want incontrovertible proof.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Yeah, but victim is a term of art for them
