Absolutely. A person of any gender can rape a person of any gender. Including the same gender.
Because it’s victim blaming bullshit?
abatado replied to your post: I have a question I dont know who to ask anyone else, I know girls shouldnt be told what to wear or care that theyre showing too much skin, but while I was at a mental facility, we werent allowed to wear short shorts or tank tops or muscle t-shirts because it could trigger someone who has been sexually abused? I did and didnt really understand that
it could be because of a certain person there who was triggered by that and do they put it into policy, at least temporarily
That sounds like a possibility.
….I don’t really get that? Survivors are wearing all sorts of things when they’re attacked. But I’m not a survivor, so, I don’t know. Maybe that does trigger a good number of survivors? I mean, I guess it makes sense in that environment if there’s a lot of people triggered by it.
