TW: Rape Culture
Often men do not understand that women have to walk home carrying protection. I have friends who carry keys, mace, and keychain clubs. I carry a switchblade in my pocket when I walk home from work. The fact that I feel like I have to do so is sickening, and men should be able to see that.
I encourage men to be just as disgusted by rape culture as women. Aren’t you angry that a small percentage of your sex forces women to carry weapons and assume the worst of you when you walk home behind them?
We shouldn’t have to live in a culture that breeds necessary fear of strangers. I shouldn’t need a knife to walk home in the dark.
Yuuup, I always walk home like this, even if I’m walking from my driveway to my front door.
Yeppp, but usually my mace, I don’t want to have to let them get close enough to use my keys. I used to have a knife on my keychain but I lost it. I was looking into getting the cat/pitbull defender keychain but it was sold out.
