From A Woman to A Man

NO she said

does no mean yes?

we know you know better than that

you did what you did because you wanted to

it wasn't her fault

you can't blame the way she dressed

the way she talked 

the way she acted

the truth is

no woman is ever asking to be violated

the truth is

rape culture affects you, too

if we excuse your actions

if we say you were acting purely on instinct 

on some primal urge

than we make you out to be no better 

than an animal

so tell us

all of us who are afraid to go out at night 

afraid to be alone in the dark

fearing for our lives every tiime we go out in public

tell us

are you an animal?
