Unfortunately being able to prosecute is hard when victims find ways to blame themselves

Victims are conditioned by their abuser to blame themselves. It's an effective manipulation tactic.

Yup. It’s part of why a lot of states will decide to charge these sorts of crimes unilaterally without regard to input from the victims. The amount of abused individuals willing to voluntarily cooperate with charging their abuser with a crime, and not ask that they be dropped, is frighteningly small.
