In honor of Children’s Book Week, here’s a photo of an awesome kid.
TW: Rape Culture
Often men do not understand that women have to walk home carrying protection. I have friends who carry keys, mace, and keychain clubs. I carry a switchblade in my pocket when I walk home from work. The fact that I feel like I have to do so is sickening, and men should be able to see that.
I encourage men to be just as disgusted by rape culture as women. Aren’t you angry that a small percentage of your sex forces women to carry weapons and assume the worst of you when you walk home behind them?
We shouldn’t have to live in a culture that breeds necessary fear of strangers. I shouldn’t need a knife to walk home in the dark.
Yuuup, I always walk home like this, even if I’m walking from my driveway to my front door.
Amazing how all women understand the key thing when they see it done and men always need it explained to them what it is.
