  •  It's a humiliating crime of which to be a victim. (2+ / 0-)

    The victim's privacy, dress, behavior, and her character are assassinated in public once she reports this crime.  That is why so few rape victims report the crime.  

    People call the rape victim a liar in public places to damage her credibility.  She is harassed.  She is menaced.  She is threatened.
