I think Bobbi misses one of the reasons society continues to believe these myths. I’ve written about it elsewhere; our natural instinct to find a reason to believe that it won’t happen to us, or won’t be as damaging if it should happen. Thus, we keep our kids away from strange, anti-social, men, and we convince ourselves that our stability, our religion, or our wealth, will protect us from the really harmful abusers, and the kinds of abuse that might occur outside of those “stereotypes” aren’t really that damaging.
None of which is true at all.
Still, the myths listed are worth checking out, as well as the information that shows how false they really are.
