There are reasons why a woman might be willing to say she's been raped but not be willing to name her famous rapist.
Here's one: she knows that 1 in 4 of the women *hearing her will have the same experience but also know that the fans of her rapist will tear her apart for pointing out the tarnish on their idol.
Here's another one: In a society where it's perfectly reasonable to some to expect that a woman who is experiencing pain or discomfort during sex should "wait 10 seconds for him to finish" (personal experience on that one) rather than object to the pain or discomfort, perhaps it's not exactly a safe thing to name names.
Here's another: In a place where 1 in 4 women are raped but many of those raped are raped more than once, it might not be prudent to say too much lest one be considered "careless" in having the audacity to be a victim of other people's bad behavior.
Or perhaps Ms. Price feels that simply having the courage to say "I was raped" in this atmosphere is radical enough without opening herself up to all that would go along with a name.
I mean, I was recently asked if I'd heard from (one of) my rapist(s) in passing conversation like it was the most natural thing in the world--as if we'd kept in touch. And it was well known what had happened to me. It was the talk of the town, so ignorance is a bullshit excuse. Naming names and speaking out opens oneself to being reminded of that shit 20 fucking years later. I can't blame Ms. Price if that's not something with which she intends to deal.
So, to the clueless person who sanctimoniously berated Ms. Price for her decision to protect herself, I give a good rousing one of these:
*By the way, I would like to point out that those statistics are skewed. 1 in 4 overall but I'm telling you, if you only count minority women or working class women or poor women, that number would go up significantly. I do not know nor have I ever known more than a small handful of women in 38 years in 5 different states, in several different regions of the nation, who have NOT been raped. As a matter of fact, I could name the names of the women that I know for sure have never been raped because that state is so remarkable among the women I've met.
