The truth is that if our government and Law Makers can comfortably perpetuate statutory RAPE by keeping the age of sexual consent at 11, then we are not even half way gone with this fight! HOW CAN U GET AN ERECTION FOR AN 11 YEAR OLD?!! HOWWWWWW!!!! #SayNoToRape

It is never okay to Rape, Don’t do it, Don’t entertain it, Don’t joke about it, it is not a thing of pride to discuss with your cliques, look at your circle and make your stance known!

#WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired

Since we all “seem” to be on the same page, let’s remember rape and assault is not only using strong physical force, it is also dropping pills into ppls drinks, sex with someone who is completely drunk and passed out, using your position of professional power to coerce sex…
