Why are so many people blaming the victim? Trusting someone doesn't make you responsible for their behaviour. Everybody makes mistakes about who to trust sometimes. In reality there are good and bad people everywhere and knowing who to trust is difficult. I know someone in the UK who was raped by two seemingly kind concerned men who told her it was unsafe to wait in the station all night for the first train (she just missed the last one) and offered to 'help' her by letting her stay at theirs till the morning. And Tokyo is not totally safe, nowhere is. I lived there for 7 years and got touched several times on the train, offered money for sex several times (when walking out of a convenience store in jeans, no makeup etc at 2pm etc) and hassled with disgusting sexual emails by someone who seemed nice so I gave my email address to them. Yes, it's a good idea to be careful, but sometimes we have to trust. What kind of life can we have if we can't let ourselves trust anyone?
