4:13 a.m.

  • Tonight the sky was so clear we saw the Milky Way,
  • I haven’t been home since this morning,
  • I reek of smoke,
  • My friend just gave me five books to read,
  • And I need to order another that a stupid guy recommended,
  • In an hour we need to be on the road to take a friend to the airport,
  • Then I have a meeting with the mayor to ask about opening a terrace in our restaurant,
  • Then I work a 3-hour shift,
  • Then I need to either nap or workout,
  • Then another 5-hour shift,
  • Then I can finally go home and sleep,
  • I also need to write an long overdue email to my best friend,
  • Another email to another friend about previously mentioned stupid guy,
  • All the while trying not to binge (easier done on zero sleep).
  • Ready.Set.Go.

I fight Rape Culture because
When I told my ex boyfriend about my rape
He ‘forgave’ me.

I fight Rape Culture because
I saw my baby sister age overnight
As she told me about her best friend getting molested.

I fight Rape Culture because
My closest friend was abused as a child
And he told nobody but me.
It took him 13 years to open up.

I fight Rape Culture because
My friends admit to letting their partners fuck them when they don’t want it
Then laugh it off as typical male behaviour.

I fight Rape Culture because
Saying that you’re raping someone is perfectly acceptable
If you’re playing a video game.

I fight Rape Culture because
Men tell me they are insulted when women walking in front of them start to walk faster.
As if their ego is more important than our safety.

I fight Rape Culture because
If I tell somebody their rape joke isn’t funny
I am told that I’m uptight.

I fight Rape Culture because
It won’t die out
Unless we kill it ourselves.
