I dont think she wants to blame the victim. Thats the point. This discussion centers more around a desire to shit on Cracked based on past slights than anything else. Any desire to shit on the specifically because of this article implicitly impugns the author of the article as well.
Is this another one of those cases where "who's talking matters more than rhetoric"
It's awfully bold of you to criticize a rape victim for the format she chose to tell her story.
I'm saying we cannot know how, or even if, she chose to tell it in this way. All we know is what the finished product looks like. Therefore, a criticism of a rape listicle is not necessarily a criticism of a rape victim.
Or maybe putting a rape story into the same language and format as meaningless pop culture trivia causes the issue to be normalised and stripped of its severity. We don't know if the writer wanted her experiences told in the way it's up now, or if that's all editorial, or something in between. All I know is that the end result is awkward as fuck, and probably not going to do a lot of good beyond catharsis.
