Men seem to believe no means maybe or no means yes if she stops fighting and that infuriates me.
Men Should Be Hugely Offended by the term “She was asking for it,” Not Embracing the Idea that they are Cavemen
“She was asking for it” is a way to blame the victim but if you think about it women can draw strength from the idea that ultimately women are responsible. Strength that may very well be necessary.
I feel moved to share lessons I have learned that have kept me safe when I went up against men who wanted to hurt me and felt they had the right. I am still here so I know something and I want to pass the knowledge on bc it will never be irrelevant. Unfortunately.
