Seeing this screen grab made me feel like there were some sane people in the world who instead of telling people to not get raped, focus the energy on teaching people to not rape. Shifting the blame to the victims has  always been something that completely boggles my mind – it never will be the victims fault. No one ‘asks’ for it.Rape and sexual abuse stats are at such alarmingly high rates that people have almost become numb to the crime.

By the way. If you are a survivor, or near survivor, you can share your story, read other shared posts, find information on help centres and resources over here: www.isaidno.co.za (anonymous or not) – 


I said No is an initiative to Break the culture of silence. Victim shaming, anadded pain to the stripping of dignity and security that rape does, has become a norm, and survivors, for that and many more reasons, do not report their rapes and or sexual abuse. Let’s end this, let’s talk about it, let’s stop the disrespect of people’s bodies. 

Okay, done preaching (for now).
Head on over to ISaidNo – heartbreaking but necessary

And now… a moving PSA
