“Riley made a simple but telling observation about both feminist and nonfeminist rape deniers. “They are all talking about sex and promiscuity,” she said. But, she observed, “Rape is not about sex at all.”
Jody Raphael, Rape Is Rape: How Denial, Distortion, and Victim Blaming Are Fueling a Hidden Acquaintance Rape Crisis

“Ask yourself, What kind of person aspires to have sex with a comatose young woman? And how do you label someone who deliberately gets a girl drunk in order to do so?”
Jody Raphael, Rape Is Rape: How Denial, Distortion, and Victim Blaming Are Fueling a Hidden Acquaintance Rape Crisis

“Responsibility is still laid on the victim. Years of educating the public about these issues seem to have resulted only in the expectation that women should now know better than to let themselves get raped … only gendered crimes generate the kind of victim-blaming responses rape and domestic violence produce. Whereas forgetting to set the antiburglary alarm or getting robbed despite the “neighborhood watch” does not exculpate the thieves, getting raped always elicits an investigation into the ways in which a victim might ultimately have been responsible for what happens. Bad judgment becomes cause.”
