knowing karate does not stop rape.

owning a gun does not stop rape.

self defense classes do not stop rape.

only changing our culture will stop rape.  so stop shaming people who could not fight back.  

Dear Rape Apologists,

80-85% of survivors are raped by an acquaintance.  

You are telling women to attack or kill their lovers, partners, family members, employers and friends.  This is not a realistic expectation.

Incarcerated women are disproportionately survivors of domestic and sexualized violence, and 32% of women incarcerated for murder have killed their partners.

We tell women to carry guns, to clutch their keys in their fists, to carry pepper spray.  But when women defend themselves, they are put into prison. 

97 percent of rapists will never be incarcerated.

We teach women to fight back, then incarcerate them for doing so.  What are we teaching men?
