“I understand” are the 2 worst words a man can tell a woman going through her period as the cramps ravage her insides. Because we don’t understand, we can’t understand. No amount of headaches, films,
divorces social consciousness campaign will make us understand what it feels like … nothing … except perhaps a sex change.
So when you encounter a woman that has been raped but has never reported her rape … don’t be quick to judge. Because you just can’t understand what she is dealing with.
It’s tempting to try and look at it from a logical standpoint, but nothing about rape is logical. The act and the reaction are very illogical. And in societies like ours being raped is a worst crime than being a rapist, because you will be judged and mocked by society.
So when it comes to rape we all, especially men, have to understand that we can’t fully understand but that we can help by not being judgmental.
