I wish that things could be fixed magically, that by just wanting something to get better, it does. However, that's far from the case. I don't think we as a society, myself included, are active enough in educating and preventing rape. I think there is far too much harm done by those that are perpetuating rape culture. What follows is all too close to home for me.
Uh...never. Why aren't these all 0%?
I couldn't believe what I was reading. I couldn't believe that such a large portion of males claimed it is okay to rape a female under certain circumstances. Most of all, I couldn't believe that females themselves claimed it is okay. I was disturbed, but I wasn't ready for the conversation between my two friends.
I decided to write this article with their permission to so they could be heard. I hope their voices can give other victims, both female and male, strength to come forward and get help so that we can stand together, or at the very least, I hope this can give them something to hold on to because they aren't alone.
