This devalues the term survivor which should be reserved for truly life threatening situations. "I survived my commute to work" does not pass the survival test unless you were in an accident and went on to ICU. Similarly some rape is truly life threatening and it is appropriate to use "rape survivor" to describe the victim. But what about the more prevalent date rapes and statutory rapes which were not truly life threatening? Perhaps victim is a better word?
