Because Rape Is Just That Serious

BecauseRape

I’ve toyed with discussing this on my blog for the past year. I tend to shy away from this topic on social media and my blog because I feel as though it is too fragile of a topic to delve into. For the past day or two, my twitter timeline has been on HIGH. Topics from colorism, to Ferguson, to domestic violence and to of course rape have all been discussed and after unplugging from twitter for the day, I returned to a "She wasn't even rape-worthy," tweet.

This is a mini shout-out to myself to cut these certain habits, and an even bigger shout out to you all to expel this bullshit from your ways. Effective immediately.
