svu study: "pixies" (2x09)
I’ve loved SVU for years, but sometimes the show tends to over-dramatize sexual assault in order to boost ratings, often with problematic results. I would like to see how frequently this actually happens. During my study (yes, I’m a scientist now) I will keep track of which episodes:
- portray rape victims as dishonest
- portray rape accusations as being completely false
- excuse sexual assault if the victim somehow “deserved” it or portray the attacker in a sympathetic light
- normalize police officers disregarding victims’ boundaries
- normalize police officers blaming or mocking victims
Additionally, I will note how gender, race, and sexual orientation play into the above issues.
Portrays rape victims as dishonest? No. No one in the episode was raped, and all the gymnasts sharing about the inappropriate advances of an older man are telling the truth.
Portrays rape accusations as being completely false? No. The dead victim was not actually raped, but this mistake is due to a faulty police assumption, not a false allegation.
Excuses sexual assault if the victim somehow “deserved” it or portrays the attacker in a sympathetic light? No. The only sexual misconduct in the episode is the adult man who behaves inappropriately toward young girls; the man is never portrayed positively and the girls are never portrayed negatively.
Normalizes police officers disregarding victims’ boundaries? No. The primary victim is dead, and the conversations with gymnasts are respectful.
Normalizes police officers blaming or mocking victims? No. Starting when they believe the dead victim was a prostitute and continuing to their realization of her true identity, the detectives never blame or mock her for her attack.
Does it suck? 0/5; this episode is a beacon of hope in these troubled times
