Because basic human fucking empathy. Oh, you need more than that?
Because women and girls are raped. In their thousands. In their millions. Every day without ceasing. They are raped in their homes, and in their communities by men they know, by men they don’t know.
Because men are rarely punished by the justice system for the violence they do to women.
Because on top of all this, women are blamed for what men do to them. They were ‘asking for it’, they were ‘leading them on’, they were ‘in the wrong place’.
Because men still believe that women lie about rape.
And on top of all this shit, some of you think rape jokes are fucking hilarious’.
Now have some empathy.
