Thanks for saying this. Just about every woman I know is triggered and upset right now, because so many of them have personal experiences with assault and rape. Many agree, a large part of that is due to the cavalier attitude that some men are demonstrating in this moment; the degree to which they not only don’t seem to care, but are engaged in active dismissal or mockery. That’s what’s causing the bulk of the current pain even more than having the fact that they’ve been victims thrust forcefully into their conscious minds.
