I didn’t say raped only, I said sexual violence. Every single woman I know has been groped, harassed, sexually intimidated, assaulted or raped. I’ll bet it’s the same for you but you are too afraid to actually talk to them and find out because then you’d have to adjust your world view. Women don’t typically talk about that kind of thing with men, particularly ones like you who clearly are predisposed to disbelieving them or otherwise shaming them for it.

Put your money where your mouth is and ask 20 women you know if they’ve ever been intentionally made to feel sexually unsafe. I dare you!
