If you're a victim of illness or violence or deceit, should we blame you?
Many stories are on all types of media question whether victims of sexual harassment, rape, bullying, poverty and more are at least partially to blame for their circumstances. How often do oral health professionals do the same, blame the victim for new or continuing conditions?
