We all know the story of the boy who cried wolf, but what about the story of the girl who cried rape?
A few very brave girls and women do cry rape but many, many, many more go unreported.
Why is that?
Well, because most of the girls or women are afraid to be called a liar. Is their story going to be believed?
Mine was thank goodness yet at the same time I was told by my then boss, “Next time don’t get so drunk.”
The man who raped me?
He was told not to come near me again (which he didn’t listen to or follow) and is still working at the same place.
That is the reason so many girls and women don’t cry rape.
We are always made to feel as though it’s OUR fault. The rapist is never told not to rape.
It is EVERYONE’s responsibility to change that mentality. And it starts with education.
