Why is blaming yourself such a big part of dealing with rape?

ElizaPam
I still can’t stop blaming myself for being raped when I was 18. I shouldn’t have been at his place alone, I shouldn’t have let him get me drunk, I shouldn’t have passed out in his bed. I should’ve protected my virginity better. I just never thought a guy would ever really do that to me. I was legally an adult but still a child. He was 26 he should’ve known better. I told him I wanted to wait until I was married and I wanted it to be magical. He even finished inside me like he didn’t even care.
