  11. I think this taboo is connected with another taboo in our culture: the taboo against not being a psychological victim if you have been the victim of abuse or a terrible attack. The taboo against speaking about this stuff is pernicious. It entrenches a state of victimhood in far too many people. It makes victims fear that they are sick and evil in the event that they themselves have rape fantasies. It makes victims feel as though they are betraying their fellow victims if they manage to move beyond victimhood.
