I was raped too, more than once as a teen. I don't fear anyone, including men. I was sexually abused as a child. I'm not afraid of Black men or White ones.

So while I can understand and respect women daealing with their trauma, I cannot punish every man I come in contact with for the sins of one. I cannot spend my life in fear of people, because I realize I need people to survive.

White women spend a lot of time being a victim and asking others to see them as victims all the time. So much so, they suck the life out of the room. No one else can be a victim except White women.

I understand what you want, but I'm not the one willing to give it to you. White women are not the only victims, and in fact, the same White women asking to be seen as victims turn around and victimize other women who have been victims, kinda like you did here by disregarding my victimization to center you and White victims of rape. As if White women rape is the only type of victimization and the most important of all types of victimization.

In classic fashion. Predictably predictable.
