Response to cui bono (Reply #10)

Sun Jun 12, 2016, 06:39 AM

11. I'm pretty sure that's not what she meant

First, because I've seen her speak out against prison rape a number of times.

Second, because she follows feminist issues, and this is an issue that's come up a lot: people responding to something bad happening to a woman by saying, "What if it were your mother, sister, etc.?" The issue is that you shouldn't have to imagine something happening to your mother or sister to have empathy for a woman who is a victim of violence. I think THAT is what her response was about.
