Not safe

It is not safe for women to drink in bars

It is not safe to date

It is not safe to send your children on school field trips

It is not safe to assume that your government won’t release sex offenders without any supervison

It is not safe to trust people in your family, at your church, in your home, or in public spaces

It is not safe to let your child out of your sight

 

Does this seem like a paranoid list?  Each “not safe” refers to a real story.  These are statements of fact based on real events.  Within the past few months two separate crisis counselors have told me that young women now accept date rape as an unavoidable reality.  And it is.

 

Think about what it means for all of us that getting someone drunk and drugged is an ACCEPTED form of rape.
