When you see an article or hear someone talking about a sexual assault (or any kind of assault), please refrain from making a comment that is completely based on your own revenge fantasy or telling the victim how they “shoulda” reacted or how they should be dealing with it. Because, guess what? That makes the person you’re talking to or about feel like they didn’t do enough to stop what happened to them and that their experience is only valid if they did what YOU think they “shoulda” done.
Also, how about not telling someone that “technically” they weren’t raped. That’s just a million facets of glimmering wrong.
And while you’re at it, never say, “I’m just sayin.”
Cool, now we can be friends. And I really need to stop looking at internet comments. Lowest comment denominator.
