NO, perhaps for whatever reason in her life or her mind she had poor judgment the second time but the rape is not her fault.

It is never the victims fault for this very obvious and simple reason.

No one can make another person do anything.

No one has special mind control powers. No one can make someone jump, kick a ball, dance, drive, etc. Only the person who does the action is at fault for the action they just did.

No one can make another person punch them repeatedly in the face no matter how much they taunt and regardless of the situation. Only the person who decides that punching is an option an acceptable option and decides to throw a punch is responsible for the punch. Other people in the same situation may not choose to punch someone or even consider that an option.

Same with rape or any other possible human action. The person who does the action chose to do it, they did it of their own volition. A million other people could be in the EXACT same position as a rapist and Never even consider raping someone let alone do it. So its not the situation or the victim. They didnt hold a gun to their rapists head and order them to rape. IT is a choice and a responsibility only of the one who makes that choice to commit rape.... and only a rapist will rape. Others would not given all the same scenarios that anyone could conceive of.Health Question & Answer

Its never her fault.....the victim isn't at fault
its a physiological thing, she thinks shes safe or that there is no where else to go, he odiously has something wrong with him....
its not her fault, she couldn't prevent it, its the same thing with domestic violence.....Health Question & Answer

In my opinion, no. Rape is never the woman's fault. A woman should be able to hang out with, date, see, visit, or go anywhere without feeling the threat and danger of being raped or sexually abused.Health Question & Answer
