Twitter user @_clvrarose (The Rose) posted 11 tweets on March 29th and focused her attention to that side of rape used as defense for rapists in some cases (and it’s often ignored by others): blaming the victim. But she wants to show to the whole world that sexual assault is not the victim’s fault.
The entire thread earned over 6.9 thousand retweets and over 7 thousand likes, and created a wave of mutual understanding and support. All she did was to speak the truth, and tell things as they are and yes, she was heard.
Remember that sexual assault is never the victim’s fault. Seek legal help if you’ve been affected, or call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-4673.
