Don't Get Raped: Fuck You.

I'm all for teaching girls/women/females to not get raped. I just don't like how it's taught nor the victim-blaming that happens with it. This is the way to teach gals how to not get raped:

Gurl this world is full of assholes who believe they are entitled to take what they want and don't give two hoots who they hurt to get it. Some of them aren't just looking to force sex on you 'neither, some of them get off on causing hurts, harms, and death. And there ain't nobody gonna look after you if you run into any of these folks, not cops or passersby or church. You're on your own. SO. You gotta learn to fight. You gotta learn to fight dirty. To kick and punch and use whatever you can get your hands on. You gotta take lessons on how to fight, how to use your body as a weapon, how to use things other than your body as weapons. You gotta learn how fight and to KNOW YOU ARE WORTH FIGHTING FOR. You gotta know that your life is worth it. You gotta know that you have the right to say NO. To say NO I DON'T WANNA FUCK. NO I DON'T WANNA DANCE. NO I DON'T WANT A DRIVE. NO I DON'T WANT TO FUCKING SMILE.

You gotta know that right or wrong, whether it should be this way or not, this is how it is. The world is full of assholes. The world is full not only of assholes who rape but also assholes who tell them it's okay to rape. Assholes who will tell you it's your fault if you are raped. IT IS  NOT YOUR FAULT IF YOU ARE RAPED. Ya gotta know that somebody will try to rape you. Somebody will touch you without your permission.

Somebody will try to harm you. And you are the ONLY person who can keep yourself safe. So you gotta be sharp. You gotta walk tall and stand proud. You gotta take up space. You gotta learn to say fuck off and go fuck yourself. You gotta know that you'll get flack for protecting yourself. You gotta know that you are worth it. You gotta know that the people who give you a hard time for learning how to protect yourself are trying to put you in danger's path. You gotta know that while it maybe ain't right that we live with fear that's just how it is. You gotta know that the people who rape and the people who make excuses for them aren't gonna do a damned thing to keep you safe. You gotta be brave. And you've gotta say fuck you to anyone and everyone who tries to tell you to shrink to be safe.

You deserve to shine in all of your fabulousness. You deserve to be safe and free. You deserve to do whatever it takes to defend your safety and your freedom.
