I posted a link to the anti-rape wear on my Facebook, and have been getting nothing but “THIS IS VICTIM BLAMING WE SHOULD FOCUS ON GETTING RID OF RAPE NOT PREVENTING IT! THIS IS A BAD PRODUCT” comments.
I feel like it’s obvious that we shouldn’t NEED this product, that women SHOULD feel safe.
Fun example. This summer, I had a man reach up my dress and underneath my underwear while I was walking down a street one night . This was not my fault. It was his. I SHOULDN’T have had that happen, he did not have my permission. But he did it. OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE SHOULDN’T RAPE OR SEXUALLY ABUSE PEOPLE BUT IT IS STILL A THING THAT FUCKING HAPPENS AND IT’S DISGUSTING AND I WILL BE PURCHASING A PAIR OF THESE BECAUSE I NEVER WANT TO FEEL ANOTHER UNWANTED HAND ON ME AGAIN!!
I feel like this product is not a victim blaming product, it’s a revolution. It’s obviously drawing attention to the fact that THIS HAPPENS SO MUCH THAT WE NEEDED TO INVENT FUCKING ANTI RAPE UNDERWEAR AND HOLY SHIT THAT’S TERRIFYING.
We need to live in a world where there is no rape. And we need to teach people not to rape, not how to prevent it from happening to you. But WHILE WE ARE WORKING ON THAT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE NOBODY IS GONNA FUCKING TOUCH ME. I’m tired of people talking about statistics and hypothetical situations- STOP! NOBODY IS SAYING RAPE IS A GOOD THING. WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE SAME OUTCOME! Don’t make me feel like a victim blamer or a rape excuser for wanting- no, NEEDING this product.
