SheSaidThis: Chika Unigwe On Rape And Victim-Blaming

Here is a hard knock on the head for the rape culture that keeps blaming the victim while the perpetrators walk away free – “Rape doesn’t happen to a ‘certain kind’ of girl. It is perpetrated by a ‘certain kind ‘of man” – Chika Unigwe

Rape knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter what you wear, who you are, where you are or what you look like. From an old menopausal woman to a young child who is still learning how to walk, this horrible crime happens to women of all ages and lifestyles. Rapist attempt to or actually attack anyone. Rapists strike, regardless of what the woman does, says or wears. Saying victims deserve to be raped for “putting herself in that situation” is very unacceptable.

A culture that blames victims for being raped rather than blaming the rapist is a culture that encourages rape.   Rapists will keep walking away free until we stop putting blames on the victims and start going after these criminals.

  1. There is need to tackle the issue of rape correctly; blame the rapist totally for the evil act.

  2. No one carries the tag ‘Rapist’ on his forehead, so suspicion shldn’t be based on some kind of looks, rather, there shld be protection for evey vunerable person.

  3. This is absolutely free, very easy all you need is an internet facility.

    for full details see my blog at http://www.work-at-homefree.webnode.com.

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".

    THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.

    1. open a liberty reserve account at http://www.libertyreserve.com ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at http://www.perfectmoney.com (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to http://www.google.com to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to http://www.rapid-goldex.com , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to http://www.superchange.ru or http://www.swapgold.com , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
