[akscykat] Being mugged or raped

Suppose hypothetically, you were to be mugged, or raped.  Would you be (1) traumatized, or (2) merely unhappy/angry?

Suppose you assess yourself to belong to category 1, even though the event has not happened yet.  Can you change yourself to category 2?  Would you like to change?  Can you even want to change?

Hypothesize that the tendency to traumatization is tied to underlying values that a person doesn't want to give up because the values define their identity.

Being a person for whom rape is less of a big deal is akin to being a slut.
