These various proclamations I keep seeing from assholes about what was "stupid" of people who were victimized is self-defeating and special pleading by nature. You could call someone stupid for using credit cards when anyone who merely sees the number can make purchases in your name. You could call someone stupid for carrying cash at any time because they could be mugged at any time and place and if you have a large amount on you police can actually, quite crazily, seize it on grounds you might use it for a crime at some point. You could call someone stupid for not having cash on them because in addition to not having cash on hand in an emergency if a mugger finds them broke they could murder them in anger. You could call someone stupid for keeping their money in the bank because in addition to standard fees accounts can be compromised by insiders, hacked from the outside, or since banks use their customer's cash to invest and give out loans meaning there is a real possibility they could lose it all in the market. You can be called stupid for hiding your money in a mattress, or a safe, or under the floorboards because if thieves come they'll start ripping everything up looking for it or else if there's a fire you lose it all.
Taken all together it means there's no way to have money that can't be taken from you but when someone calls you stupid for every possible place you could store it on your person or off and every possible way you could lose it that pretty much means you were stupid just for having it.
Same with intellectual property. You can be stupid for keeping digital or paper records of your research and development because they can be stolen before you file a patent. You can be stupid for fishing for investors because they can take your idea without investing in you. You can be stupid for being employed while working on personal projects because a company can find ways to lay claim to employee's ideas while they're under contract or if they used company resources to work on it which can include time spent on break in the building even if you brought your own pen and paper or simply because something at work can be claimed to have inspired you to your invention. You can be stupid for heading down to the patent office because the damned office could take take the patent. You can be stupid for successfully patenting an idea because now the inner workings can be found by the public and reverse engineered to create enough of a difference that patent law won't cover the specific design and build on your work for profit or else somebody could say screw it and directly copy the design to sell in a market that just doesn't give a damn about intellectual property.
So you were stupid to think you could have a profitable idea. Especially if it was an intellectual medium like a novel that can just be scanned to digital and uploaded or a video game or a screenplay or even a movie because people can just download and share it once a single copy is ever sold or traded hackers will eventually crack any copyright protection and you'll never see a dime. But it was your fault it was all so easy to steal.
It makes just a tad more sense to make stealing illegal rather than the sole responsibility of victims to avoid being stolen from and proactively think of every possible angle they could ever be attacked from including counters to their defenses and counters to the counters and counter-counters now doesn't it? Solves the problem a little more neatly than telling people that they should essentially never interact with another human being and to have nothing worth stealing, even the thoughts in their heads for fear of it being taken and/or misused.
Try to imagine having any sort of sexual relationship if people actually tried to follow No's logic. They can't get naked, ever, because someone could be recording it and even if they swept the room for hidden cameras and cased surrounding building for telescopes then pinned their curtains to the window frame to make sure there's no way to view their house's interior from the outside there's no telling if somebody simply planted another device when their back was turned or when they turned off the lights. They can't have photos of themselves nude or not because they can be photo-shopped onto a naked body and posted to revenge porn sites with fake profiles. Hell, they can't even have relationships in the first place because they might eventually be betrayed in any number of ways and it will be their own fault for trusting the person that took nude photos of them/stole from their dresser/turned out to be abusive/cheated on them/were cheating with them on someone else/filed for divorce and subsequently dedicates their lives to making their ex miserable. But don't blame them, the one getting fucked should have known better than to give them the chance or else just got the jump on them to be the one doing the fucking instead.
It's tantamount to siding with criminals to minimize this shit and reflect all scorn back onto the one who "didn't take enough action" by asshole estimates. The ones who take predatory action and in the process remove their targets agency are the ones these assholes refuse to hold to account and that is stupid. More than likely self-serving as well because there's always just this unspoken "wouldn't you?" oozing out of every insult, minimization, and condescending double-standard. In fact it's hard to explain attempts to manage the narrative by drowning out any discussion of the perpetrator's actions and dampening any kind of emotion or judgment until they're forgotten by focusing on the victim and trying to inject as much condemnation and negative emotion as possible independent of any mention of the perpetrator once they're the sole focus of the conversation trying to make anything bad happening to them sound like comeuppance as anything else but a desire to be the one that delivers it.
