to go out of the house at 8pm
or not
“because i might get raped”

debating whether i am allowed
to wear that skirt that goes little above my knees
or not
“because i might get raped”

Do you see this?
Do you see the reason they give for a woman to not do certain things?
Rape.

How can we live in this world
peacefully
when we have to fear for our lives
almost every moment

    Lachhaft, wie die Gesellschaft versucht, für jeden Missbrauch die Schuld bei der Frau zu suchen. Sie war nachts allein unterwegs. Ihre Kleidung war zu offenherzig. Ihre Art war zu freundlich. Und wie sie gleichzeitig jeden Mann als Tier betrachtet, der beim Anblick nackter Knie den Verstand verliert. Wo soll das noch hinführen?

    How damn right you are. Fear takes us nowhere. As a woman I have decided for myself that I won't let fear stop me from anything. Sometimes we have to trust people that we don't know. But if we don't trust them or anyone we might as well lay down and die. Because then we would simply tie ourselves down and become unable to do anything.
