We all understand how dog pictures become viral all the time! This message, however, was as poignant as it was adorable. Bree Wiseman has posted a picture of her dog sitting obediently next to his favorite dish and used it to make a powerful statement about blaming victim, something that is unfortunately still prevalent in modern society.
To the people that say women get raped due to the way they are dressed. This is my dog. His favorite food is steak. He is eye level with my plate. He won’t get any closer because I told him no. If a dog is better behaved than you are, you need to reevaluate your life. Feel free to share, my dog is adorable.
The publication was shared more than 325,000 times. Wiseman told HuffPost that she hoped messages like hers would help raise public awareness of the insidious nature of victim blaming. “The only person to blame during a rape is the rapist,” she said. “It was his decision to rape. People should not have to worry about getting raped when they choose what to wear. “
