[The image reads:

Rape is caused by:

(check) misogyny

(check) rapists

(check) institutional tolerance

(check) structural violence

Not by women’s clothes, being in the ‘wrong’ place, drinking, or not being ‘careful enough.’]

I created a pdf version of this image, though I changed the text slightly to reflect a few more survivor-blaming excuses. The original image was in response to a Toronto cop telling women they could avoid sexual assault “by not dressing like sluts” – but that’s certainly not the only ‘reason’ survivors are blamed.

The pdf version of this image can be found here – so download it, print, and post!
