Hello Lovelies, today seems like a good day for a rant so there it is because it pains my heart whenever I pick the newspaper and I see yet another news on sexual assault.
I have noticed a deadly trend of violation of boys, girls children and for crying out loud babies! I ask myself why? What is happening in our society today.
A Rape Culture. What is RAPE? Most of us act like it doesn’t exist but Rape is sexual assault, sexual violation and sexual abuse. It is forcing one’s sexual desires on others taking by force pleasure from another human and hurting them in the process.
What is RAPE culture? These are behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, slut shaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm caused by some forms of sexual violence, or some combination of these attitudes. Put simply rape culture is giving excuses for sexual violenece and sadly this is so common today.
Some even claim they didnt know what they were doing I dont buy this because the moment he/she says no to your sexual advances and you force your way. You raped them! Meaning you are a Rapist, a molester and nothing excuses this act.
You have taken something you cannot give back, you have damaged something that cannot be fully repaired. When you rape you kill. You kill a soul, you crush a beautiful spirit under your untamed wicked desires and No there are no excuses.
Now so many people do not like talking or reading about this subject but let’s be real even if for some few minutes. We know it happens you cannot deny the facts which have been so vividly proven in every 10 to 20 people 1 or 2 have been through some sort of sexual abuse or the other.
It has happened to some of us sometimes more than once and these beautifully crushed souls are left with pain and stigma. Like why? Why on earth will someone be stigmatized based on something that happened to them something they didn’t ask for? How in the world is that fair? How in the world is that acceptable? I am wondering in pain as to how many people have suffered from sexual abuse for the years and the stigma they had to face once they spoke up. They become shameful, they hide, it takes years before they find the strength to share and heal and for years they blam themselves and not their molesters, some even try to take their lives because of the stigma.
The Bible says Man’s nature is desperately wicked but I never really understood the height of wickedness until I breached upon this subject. The fact that people are violated by others and some persons think it is “okay”, saying “she asked for it” or “how do boys even get raped?” “She condoned it” etc. makes me quiver as to what kind of world we live in right now. Children are being sexual assaulted daily children as young as babies of 4 months! That’s appalling.
Who protects these weak persons? The law? Which law the one that allows child marriages? The one that persecutes rape within a family with kid gloves? That law oh hell no!
Victims all over the world suffer from lack of justice. This is why the trend continues as some victim become rapists, killers, depressed because they lash out against the world that didn’t protect them from the perverts and it is more common than we think.
I recently was involved in a conversation in my blogger group and extensive conversations about this topic. There are alot of persons out there that need our support, our love, our acceptance. We need to tell them no you are not dirty, it’s not your fault you are golden and don’t let anyone crush that spirit of yours. Easier said than done I know, but a conscious effort needs to be made towards supporting victims, awareness isn’t enough we all need to be actively involved in protecting and healing these victims.
Have your ever been through this or do you know someone who has been through sexual abuse? Kindly share your thoughts as to ways of coping and what you generally think on this subject which unfortunately is the reality of people we know, people we love.
I will be talking more on real life issues and societial problems on the blog from time to time. Until next time dont forget to like and share Have a wonderfully blessed week. All my Love and support D.A♥.
