Sammanfattning (abstract):
Rape victims are occasionally blamed for the assault themselves. Most research today is focused on female victim blame and the studies that do investigate male rape have not examined the potential influence of alcohol intoxication. The aim for this study was to investigate whether the gender of the participant and gender and alcohol level of a rape victim cause it more blame. An experimental study with a 2 (Participant gender: man vs. woman) × 2 (Victim gender: man vs. woman) × 2 (Victim alcohol level: sober vs. intoxicated) between-subjects design was presented in four vignettes to a law student sample (N = 275). The main results were not as hypothesized namely that male participants did not attribute more blame to rape victims, male rape victims were not attributed more blame and intoxicated rape victims were not attributed more blame. The study contributes further to the research area of under which circumstances victim blame appears.
