Let me say, as I verily quiver with righteous anger, that I have fucking HAD IT with the cavalier attitude regarding violence against women in this goddamned country. Make no mistake — violence against women is the most commonly perpetrated act of civil terrorism committed here and all over the world and we need to treat it as such. Retribution needs to be SWIFT and HARSH. Men need to be taught from an early age that it is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE to EVER lay a hand on a woman with the aim to bully, punish, control, or harm — and this is NON-FUCKING-NEGOTIABLE. I’m gettin’ REAL SICK of hearing new stories every day about women being threatened, attacked, beaten, raped, and murdered…because some WORTHLESS, SOULLESS, PIECE-OF-SHIT, WASTE-OF-SPACE WITH A MINISCULE DICK couldn’t control his own rage and twisted compulsions.
I should not be afraid to walk ANYWHERE at ANYTIME for fear of being assaulted.
My two daughters should not be afraid.
My sisters, friends, and colleagues should not be afraid.
A 16 year old girl in Steubenville, Ohio should not have been afraid.
Mia Zapata should not have been afraid.
Jyoti Singh, Daughter of India, should not have been afraid.
And, now, those six young sorority women at UC Santa Barbara should not have been afraid.
All the nameless, faceless, young women of color — who are apparently without value or worth in their own goddamned country — who disappear or are murdered every single day and whose names we never hear on the evening news because their tragic, anonymous deaths don’t matter to a fucking racist, classist, misogynist culture that certainly didn’t value them in their lives. They should not have been afraid.
I am SO OVER IT.
WE NEED TO UNLEASH THE FUCKING KRAKEN ON ANY MAN — ANYWHERE — WHO PERPETRATES VIOLENT ACTS AGAINST WOMEN.
