穿着和引发犯罪无关,比利时展出强奸受害者衣服__双语新闻

As rape and sexual assault victims grapple with life post-trauma, one of the loaded questions that is sometimes asked is, “What were you wearing?”

当强奸和性侵犯受害者在与创伤的生活搏斗时,常被问到的一个问题是:“你当时穿着什么?”

The unstated but troubling implication is that if the clothes worn were provocative enough, then that may affect the level of sympathy offered.

虽然没有说明,但令人不安的是,如果穿的衣服足够挑逗,那么这可能会影响到人们对受害者的同情程度。

But, as an exhibit in Belgium proves, the question is useless, and harmful, in determining a motive for rape.

但是,比利时的一个展览证明,在确定强奸动机时,这个问题毫无用处且有害。

Called, “Is It My Fault?” the exhibit at the Centre Communautaire Maritime in Brussels features clothing items worn by victims of sexual assault, and attempts to disprove the myth that provocative clothing incites rape.

“这是我的错吗?”位于布鲁塞尔的“海事中心”的展览展示了性侵受害者穿的衣服,并试图反驳并打破那些所谓衣服会引发强奸的传说。

On loan from the victim support group CAW East Brabant, the exhibit proves that clothing never justifies or incites rape.

从受害者支持团体CAW East Brabant提供的租借中,该展览证明了穿着从来没有成为引发和促使强奸的原因。

Featuring items such as pyjamas, tracksuits, even a child’s My Little Pony shirt, the exhibit shows clothing as innocent as the victims themselves.

展出的物品包括睡衣、运动服、甚至是孩子的印有小马宝莉图案的衬衫,展览展示的衣服和受害者本身一样无辜。

The organisation hopes that the exhibit proves that “a person’s outfit can never be seen as a mitigating circumstance or provocation by a rapist.”

该组织希望这次展览能证明“一个人的服装永远不能被看作是对一个强奸犯作案动机的减缓或挑衅。”

According to Lieshbeth Kennes, a training and counselling employee of CAW, who spoke to VRT1 Radio, “What you immediately notice when you walk around here is they are all very normal pieces that everyone would wear.”

据CAW公司的一位培训和咨询工作人员Lieshbeth Kennes说,“当你在展出的衣服附近走动时,你会立刻注意到,这些都是每个人都会穿的非常普通的衣服。”

And, referencing the My Little Pony shirt, Kennes states: “The exhibition is also a harsh reality: most victims of rape still know exactly what they were wearing at the time.”

而且,在提到印有小马宝莉图案的衬衫时,肯尼斯说:“展览也传达了一个残酷的现实,大多数强奸受害者仍然清楚他们当时穿的是什么。”

The exhibition, which can be seen at the community centre of Molenbeek in Brussels, is open from January 8 to 20.

此次展览将于1月8日至20日在布鲁塞尔莫伦贝克社区中心举行。
