Before you make any kind of determination on what I am saying read through to the end.

So many bad things happen in the world. So many horrid things happen and the best we can do is blame the victim.

A person is raped (male or female)? Blame the victime for being in the area, dressing the wrong way, being the wrong gender, asking for it etc.

A mother loses her baby to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome? Blame the mother, she must have been a terrible mother, must have left the baby alone, gave it the wrong thing to eat left in an area with chemicals to inhale, she deserved it for whatever the reason.

A young man dies unexpectedly? He must have been drinking, or taking drugs or behaving badly, doing something seedy.

A gay man is murdered? He deserved it for being gay, he brought it on himself, he must have been doing something wrong, his sexuality was to blame somwhere along the lines.

A young kid is shot? He must have been doing something illegal, was probably black, was probably in a gang, somewhere along the lines he deserved it.

These are situations I have read for so long in the 'newspapers' and occassionally they are right in some of the facts surrounding their headlines 9/10 times they are wrong in their assertions and opinions.

Someone is raped for example - The perpertraitor is at fault and along the lines society for the sexulisation, but at the end its the perp. not the victim.

A mother loses her child - genetics, uncontrollable environmental factors, poor healthcare provision (the postcode lottery, or health insurance is just that bad) but most of the time a mother is never to blame. Fate is just that kind of cruel bitch that children do die and we seek someone to blame for the senselessness of life.

The Gay guy who is murdered? Why is it him to blame for the way he is made, what makes his love any different than our just based on gender? why is the blame not on the perp who committed the act, why is it always said that being a homosexual is seedy? They do exactly the same things we do in and out of the bed room... get over it.

A young man dies unexpectedly? Because of the senselessness of life we seek to blame someone to make a rationalisation of the unexpected cruelty of life. And the victim is blamed ... AGAIN.

The young kid is shot? Sometimes they are wrapped up in seedy underworld of criminality, but again there is a larger reason to blame, society disenfranchising children in certain areas of itself. Hell make your own reason, but it isn't always the victims fault.

Yes I am angry. I see too much bllame the victim nad not enough critical thinking into the situation surrounding the event. What led up to events that occur, why do things have tomake sense? This is insanity. And we keep on doing it and instead of treating society for the mass mental disorder it has, we ignore it and hope that one day, someday soon and in the future will take care of it. Why can we not recognise that today we have to act, that today we have to start treating our mass mental disorder, start respecting the differences and the injustices the unfairness and the random senselessness without blaming the person it happens to.

WE NEED TO STOP LOOKING AT THE SURFACE AND BEGIN LOOKING AT THE DEEPER PICTURE, ONLY THEN CAN WE ACTUALLY SAY WE ARE LIVING. AND ONLY THEN CAN WE SAY WE ARE LIVING OUR FUTURE.
