A Letter to All The White Knights…

Dear Every Male who says that “rape culture” is something we all live with, that women live in fear and that men need to go to rape training.

Fuck You.

It’s bad enough other women keep trying to tell me that I should be afraid every moment of my life, I don’t need a self-appointed white-knight to convince me that I need them to protect me from other males. I’m an ADULT WOMAN. I can take care of myself thank you. I don’t put myself in situations that may lead to date rape. I don’t park my car in areas of town that might get me mugged. And I DON’T associate with men who are scumbags. The men I hang out with, and the man I married didn’t need somebody like you to tell them not to rape. They already knew that because they are good people.

If you really think that men need to go through rape prevention training then I want to know what feminist re-education camp you went through  to teach you to control YOUR urge to rape every woman you see. You aren’t special. You aren’t “the safe one”. You’re a guy desperate to prove to a bunch of chicks who don’t want your attention that you are happy to stay in the friend zone for the rest of your life.

Stop trying to tell me to be afraid
Stop trying to convince me that I’m weak
Stop trying to tell the men in my life that they are just as weak as you.
