Just because you wanted to go out and have fun, does not mean you were sending out invitations to be harrassed.

It’s not your fault.

You didn’t plan on making them so angry they hurt you.

Out of their own uncontrolled anger and irrational actions.

It is not your fault.

You did not plan to be bothered when you took a late night jog.

You did not invite anyone to disturb your personal space and disrupt a simple act.

Whether you were robbed

And it was dark

And you were alone.

Or if you were raped

And it was late

And you drank.

If you were hit

And they say you provoked it

Or you had been through it before and thought you should have known.

It is NOT your fault.

Those who do wrong, those who inflict pain and bad memories.

They are responsible.

You are not ever to be held accountable for what anybody else did to you.
