Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world.
That is rape culture
THIS POST WINS FOR THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I’VE READ ALL DAY
This one hits close to home for me. In my final year of university, 6 drunk women had been called cabs to take them home by their friends. It was November and December. On 6 separate occasions, 6 women were sexually assaulted while drunk by the cab drivers called to take them home safely. Since the cab drivers worked for the mayor’s cab company, none of them lost their jobs over this.
