“I Deserve to be Raped” Signal Boost

So, I was on tumblr last night scrolling through my dash when I came across this video. I found it to be really powerful and an excellent (if a bit ranty) social commentary, and I consider this video to be a very important story.

There is a massive trigger warning for this video concerning sexual abuse, slut-shaming, and rape, so please watch at your own risk.

(there are no disturbing images or visuals in this video, it’s just her talking into the camera)

I am absolutely disgusted by the things people are posting in the comments of this video, which again could potentially be triggering so I am not going to post them here. If you want to subject yourself to the awful, misogynistic vitriol some of these bastards are spewing from their keyboards, then you can go and do that yourself.

  1. I am so glad you shared this video. I think this is a very important issue that should be addressed, understood and resolved. I found her very courageous and inspirational so much to the point where I started tearing up when she was tearing up.

    1. Yeah, the video had me in tears too. You see a lot of these signal boosts in the tumblr world (or at least the hipster sphere where my tumblog can be found) but I thought this video absolutely needed to be brought to the attention of my readers on WordPress.
