Oh, I guess also imagine if the Quakers around the US in the beginning of the country hadn't spoken out about slavery and got it ended in England and the north. In your opinion, they should have allowed slaves to be empowered by being whipped and raped and systematically sterilized and "living their lives" instead of pointing out injustices.y'know - Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks had a little more luck creating a movement and getting people to actually change the system than a parade will do for rapists who will have a "change of heart" from seeing some nicely hand-crafted posters by a herd of women, 80% of whom probably softly whispered "tee hee stopppp" into their rapists ear and then (as above mentioned stories) filed a claim a year....get real!Exactly lmao.
"if you want empowerment go out and live your life!"
Imagine if civil rights leaders had done the same instead of pointing out injustices towards them
you can't compare slavery, discrimination, etc. to a movement about "rape victim awareness". everyone is fucking aware... rapists have been around since time began. what exactly is this "awareness" going to do for everyone who's already not aware that walking outside by yourself at night is a bad idea? if the idea is to PROMOTE the fact that women should walk outside in a tank top and not be raped, then you would actually have to be convincing attackers not to do that, right? being "aware" doesn't do anything for anything for anyone unless you're telling women to be more careful about the things they wear, what time they go out at night... which seems like the opposite that goes on at the parades.."no women SHOULD do whatever they want and not get attacked" ok that's great but that's not going to happen.
