A very insightful post that everyone needs to read!
- She was all over me, so she was asking for it.
- She was drunk, so she must have have asked for it.
- She wore [insert literally any clothing you find attractive here], so she had to have asked for it.
- She answered when I said, “hello beautiful.” She asked for it.
If these statements seem crazy, it’s because they are. Still, I see them used every day as an excuse for sexual assault. Then people wonder why a girl walking down the street hears someone say, “hi there,” and finches in fear. Too often, it seems any acknowledgement at all can be used as an excuse for assault in the future.
