Thier Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Evelyn Obahor aired August 25th/15
SMILING FLIRTING EVEN OVERT SEXUAL ATTENTION IS STILL NOT AN INVITATION TO RAPE.
Being a sensual and sexy woman is not an invitation or permission to RAPE. BEING A WOMAN IS NOT PERMISSION TO RAPE.
Being a child a wife an innocent is not permission for you to rape. Why is it that some men think that a woman being friendly or living in her own sensuality means that she is rapable? How can any man look at a child and think sexual thoughts and ACT ON THEM?
It is shameful that in this day and age with so much global information we still have to address the issue of a girls, women’s, boys right to say NO and not be raped and that some cultures still think they have the RIGHT to RAPE.
