I was just talking about this with my mother. We, sadly, live in a society that blames the victim. She let herself get too drunk. If she dresses like that she was "asking for it". It's her fault for walking alone at night in THAT neighborhood. It makes me sick as a person.

This in every way is wrong. Its the fact that they refuse to acknowledge that the women was raped and then they drawn attention to saying it was her fault that he got HIV+ and saying that women should wear something that lets them know they're HIV+. This is rape culture.
"My rapist doesn't know he's a rapist. You taught him it wasn't his fault." When society constantly tells women they are to blame for being raped because of what they were wearing/drinking/doing, rapists hear that message too...and don't think they're doing anything wrong.
Brave women have fought for women's equality since 1848. Our right to vote wasn't even won until 1920, and there is so much more. The history of women's rights is long and rich with brave women and important gains. There is still a very long way to go before women are truly equal in this country. Sadly, the 'fight' is far from over.
