Campaign reaction


Yes I'm against rape but not all rape is by men.
Your 'tips' for how not to rape are all written as if males are the only ones able to do things.
"When she...", "Leave her alone", etc.
Both genders are able to take advantage of anyone under the influence or alone.
Stop being so closed-minded and realise that it's not 'your' problem.
It's sexism.

I totally agree with this. Shaming men is exactly like slut shaming in my opinion. Instead of saying these things, maybe we should reach out to these people before they do a crime?

Just wanted to say that the law in Scotland defines rape as an act that can only be committed by men.

That being said the law does mean that both men and women can be victims but a women won't be charged with rape.

I read this earlier and was in such shock, so stunned by the pain you've endured that I could not put two words together to provide a response. Here I am in the evening hours finally answering. I don't know what else to say other than I am so sorry for what happened to you. And God bless Matt for being there for you as well. I am happy to see you're healing but those scars never heal unfortunately. You're my internet friend but know I love and care for you and will always be here to support you and be a shoulder to cry on should you ever need it.
