Why we need to stop expecting the perfect victim to arrive… She is running late

Not considered to be the most sympathetic victim, Heard has admitted to not fulfilling her promise to donate a portion of her divorce settlement to charity due to financial difficulty and has been recorded saying she had hit Depp during their marriage. Much has been made of an incident described in court by a former member of Depp’s security team, where Heard allegedly defecated in Depp’s bed and blamed it on their dogs. The trial has brought into sharp focus the belief that survivors of abuse must adhere to a rigid set of standards in order to be believed.
