It's sad that society is so quick to judge

My best friend was wearing pajamas when she was raped. Pants completely covering her legs and a button up long sleeve shirt, it was winter. She was at a sleepover when a man broke into her friends house to rob them and then discovered that two people were home, he ended up raping my best friend and her friend that lived there, during the rape he beat both of them, he made my best friend watch as he hit and raped the other girl, the other girl died that night. But my best friend survived, barely, and she still has to fight, because when she is brave enough to tell someone she was raped they assume that it was her fault because of what she was wearing or because she provoked the rapist. They were both 13 years old. Knowing the whole story I dare anyone to blame her for what happened, and they don't, but people often don't care to learn the story, all they hear is that you were raped, and they immediately jump the gun to blaming it on the victim.
