RAPE IS A HATE CRIME!
Some insight with a few numbers I found:
I purposely did not lump my opinion about rape being a hate crime in with the sex chapter, because rape has NOTHING to do with sex. It is a violent crime against females, in order to humiliate and try to destroy them. Rape is used by men to show their power through violence against women. This subject matter deserves a spotlight and chapter all its own. I am shocked at the percentage of people who still do not get, this is a hate crime, a crime of violence and those who still blame the victim.
To equate rape with sex is not only ludicrous it’s insulting. It marginalizes rape as a crime and form of abuse. I remember when I was in my 20s, I was over at a friend’s house and we started talking about rape. I had stated, someone would have to kill me before they could rape me. I was absolutely dumbfounded when my friend’s mother said, and I quote, “you are so young, you don’t understand it’s over in five minutes, to say you would give up your life means you have not lived long enough to understand the difference”. I literally sat there with my mouth open. I could not believe my ears or that it had come out of a female’s mouth. What world did she live in, where she did not understand it’s not about sex, it is about abuse and violence. Most women who are murdered are also raped. Rape is a tool used to control women, to make them submissive, to humiliate them, to marginalize them, to dehumanize them, and to hurt them. Rape hurts women forever, even if you survive. Once you have been violated in such a demeaning and brutal fashion, it changes who you are. It changes how you see the world, how you see men, where you go, how you get there, how you interact with others and it changes how you feel when you’re at home. What you do from that day forward ...
