I have a dear, beautiful friend who passionately told me, ‘You can’t blame the victims. Those doing wrong are the people taking advantage – the abusers. The victims were vulnerable. Those who take advantage of that vulnerability are abusing their power and position. It is their evil action. The victims aren’t responsible for what happened to them, they couldn’t save or protect themselves.’
Brené Brown studied connection and came across people’s need to be vulnerable to truly connect She explained this on a TED talk in Houston.
