Hi everyone! This is @sohni_c for @Smashboard_. One of the things I want to discuss today is how #sexualharassment and #sexualassault cases are reported in the media. The first issue is the tedious sensationalisation of these cases 1/n
Resulting in the focus remaining on the victim rather than the perpetrator. Hence, adding to stigma, shaming and victim-blaming of the women who face harassment and assault. Also, these attitudes result in reinforcing the #rapeculture where the victim is held at scrutiny. 2/n
Moreover, insensitive and sensational reportage serves to titillate and tease the erotic imagination of abuse, rape and violence. The focus shifts from the violation of the victim to the patriarchal fixation on women's bodies and their sexual freedom. 3/n

TW: aanranding. Wie verder leest: welkom bij Devika-is-boos-op-de-Volkskrant-deel-513. --- In @volkskrant magazine stond vorig weekend deze vraag van een vrouw die aangerand is door de vriend van haar broer. Een draadje over de reacties.
.@volkskrant publiceerde vier reacties op haar vraag. a) Drie daarvan van 50+ mannen. b) NIEMAND doet de suggestie om aangifte te doen. c) Ze suggereren ALLEMAAL dat ze hierover praat met de dader. d) Twee pers. suggereren dat ze dit NIET aan haar broer vertelt. #rapeculture -->
Hier een van de reacties, waarin gesuggereerd wordt dat ze praat met de dader omdat hij zich misschien ook wel rot erover voelt en dat het voor allebei de partijen zal opluchten om de lucht te klaren. I mean WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. -->

We need to start talking about #RapeCulture as Kenyan men but I don't even know where to start. When you're worried about your sister staying out at a party late or going to a guy's place alone, you've already shown you understand it without saying it.

Back in uni, more girls than I can imagine were raped. Some didn't call it rape but it was rape. The local drinking joint, "fracas" was where people would go get girls drunk and then take them back to their place when they were too drunk to walk
Rape was such a huge problem that if Watchmen caught you walking with a girl who looked too drunk at night, they would automatically assume you were going to rape her and they would take you to their "cell" or beat you up on the road.

We might want to consider the reality that until MEN wanted to take #HarveyWeinstein down, nothing was done about his serial sexual assault.
We might also consider men have NOT wanted to take down #BillCosby,RomanPolanski(that 13yr old was raped at Jack Nicholson's) or WoodyAllen.
#CourtneyLove spoke out about #HarveyWeinsten in 2005 but was dismissed as a crazy lady b/c of her drug issues. Abuse victims self-medicate.
