Issues of consent & respect are rampant in our culture, language, narratives, media - embedded into the very roots of a postcolonial society that claims #forwardthinking yet doesn't understand that the ways we STILL think (consciously or not) are the foundation of the actions we take.
If this is still such an epidemic, then the way we think is clearly still so far from where the bar needs to be set.
Look around you at all the #womyn who’ve been affected.
These are our sisters, mothers, daughters & lovers. Take a fucking second to think before you mouth #slut in your mind.
Before you think #victimblaming.
Before you choose ignorance.
And this isn’t only for men - we women have been guilty of these thoughts too.
Check yourself & your language. I know I will.
