To the Young Men of America,

You can do whatever you want to young women.

You can disregard their humanity,
force yourself on them physically,
ignore their pleas to stop,
proceed without consent,
hurt them,

humiliate them,
indulge your urges,
treat them as property,
and silence, slander, and intimidate them after the fact.

You can do this as often as you like, to as many young girls as opportunity and your desires allow.

We will have your back (providing you are white, wealthy, and one day vote Republican.)

We will marshal our every resource of finance and position and privilege in protecting and defending you.

 

And to Young Women of America,

You don’t matter.

Not your trauma or your pain,
not the innocence you lose,
not the damage you sustain,
not the scars you are marked by,
not the nightmares you are haunted by,
not the peace you no longer find, 
not the confidence that leaves you,
not the fear that is ever present,
not the shame that you cannot shake,
not the silence you are imprisoned by.

We simply do not see you as valuable—at least not as valuable as the status quo we’re protecting or the legislation we’re coveting or the religion we’re perpetuating or the votes we’re needing.

You are the acceptable collateral damage of our misogyny and entitlement.

Your body, your emotional health, and your sense of safety—simply aren’t worth more than a Supreme Court seat.

Of course, should a pregnancy somehow be created by your violation, we will vigorously demand that you be forced to carry it, even if it exacerbates your pain and magnifies your despair. After all, we urgently need to perpetuate the appearance that we are pro-life—just not yourlife.

    • Very sad and very true. As I said somewhere else. I watched a video of a woman with two teenage girls saying that boys groping teen girls was normal. She kept saying boys have groped girls against their wishes forever and she did not see any problem with it. The one teen girl was bright red in the face as she watched her mother talk. You know that girl had been subject of an unwanted touching and was now hearing her mother say it was OK for the boys to do it to her. Hugs

    • Good Morning Mary. Did you mean the writer of the article? If so he is not a supporter of tRump. The the full article really slams the republicans. If you meant the woman with the teen daughters I wrote about, oh yes, she is a tRump deplorable. Hugs

    • You are very correct, she is a deplorable tRump supporter. Can you imagine being one of her daughters? Hugs
