Me Too

Please tell me how I can sleep at peace every night knowing that rape culture still exists and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping. You go to sleep every night hoping that everything will get better the next day but no. That’s not what happens. You wake up and:

Women are still treated as sexual objects.

Women are still treated like trash.

Women are still being bashed for wearing certain clothes.

Bla bla bla…

So tell me, how can I have a good rest at night without having to worry about my safety as a woman?

I will never be able to sleep peacefully until I know for sure that all women are safe and no longer have to be scared of becoming who they really are without receiving any judgments from society.

I will never be able to move on with life until I know for sure that we are no longer being society’s sexual objects.

My heart drops every time I think about fellow women who are being sexually harassed, assaulted, and abused. I cannot imagine what they must be going through – the humiliation, the loneliness, the blame. ARGHH! What kind of society do we live in?! The fact that rape culture is still common tells me that society at large still accepts this behavior and hasn’t done anything yet to stop it! Millions of women in every corner of the world scream for help but it’s not enough to convince society to end rape culture. How much louder do we need to be in order to get heard?
