A Slam on Rape Culture

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 22:46 -- Kalee5

Flaming red eyes, torn clothes at the thighs, and cuts and bruises that seemed to multiply, but still their lips whisper in sync

" She lies! She lies! "

But she only tells the truth

She is only but a youth

Invited to a party that came out less than a little hearty

" What was she wearing? " They whisper..

Her eyes dart back and forth between her shakey hands

How could I ever trust another man?

But still they whisper....



She's now heard it all

Perhaps victim blaming and rape culture are the crulest punishment of all

She was only out just to have a little fun

She was never expecting that 9 months after she'd be bearing an unwanted son

Perhaps the worst part is that no one dared to listen

When she tried to speak their hateful eyes didn't glisten

Forced forever a victim of rape

Her cries were muffled as she tried to escape






Victim blaming is never okay.
