And, me too. Duh.


We are all sick and tired of having to remind or convince others that people of all marginalized gender statuses systematically experience sexual harassment and sexual assault. Too many of us can’t or don’t say “me too” because we have already been murdered by this terror or we are exercising self-care or we don’t feel safe to share or we are too young or poor to have access to social media or our sexual violence experiences are not just caused by patriarchal forces or we simply don’t like the fact that we still have to say this shit out loud to reveal the prevalence of sexual violence. So if you’re surprised reading those “me too”s pouring on your timelines, please add the silenced/silent ones to the list; then you may feel the real terror.

And, me too. Duh.
