REMEMBER: rape can happen to anyone, man or woman. It’s simple: DON’T rape. No one is asking for it, no one deserves it, it’s up to you to be fucking responsible and sane and in control of your actions and not put others in dangerous or compromising positions that affect them for the rest of THEIR LIVES. If you don’t think it’s serious, WAKE THE FUCK UP. WAKE. THE. FUCK. UP.
My friend Cara verbalized my beliefs. This is important. This is necessary.
Putting the blame on the perpetrators, rather than the victims, really is the way way to go here, and it frustrates me that society is being so slow about this. Nobody is “asking for it” by walking alone at night, wearing tight clothing, or getting drunk. It’s not the victim’s fault.
