Avoiding Rape Isn’t the Solution

I’m really fed up with women being taught to avoid getting raped instead of men being taught not to rape. I know that it’s coming from a place of concern, but what we are doing is slowly taking away the rights and freedom of women under the disguise of wanted to protect them. We should be fighting for women’s rights and freedom instead. We should be teaching men that women are worthy of equal respect and to view them has human beings and not as disposable bodies.

“Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth. And it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape and start there. – Kurt Cobain

I wonder if Kurt Cobain be disappointed if he knew that 20 years on, we’ve made little to no progress on the issues he commented on. We’re still struggling with the same things. Personally, I feel that we are moving backwards instead of making progress.
