Have sex with women who aren't your own. That's what being a slut is."
This is the same argument used by feminists to deny that men can be abused, or that men are generally violent. It's been debunked by numerous feminist studies over the years and still not taken seriously. When men can be abused, and when women can rape, and feminists deny or ignore this fact, it sends the message that men are superior and they must be accepted through violence and coercion. But all men are men when it comes to this: if you don't have the power, and you act like a woman, you will be treated like a prostitute.
I'm not here to talk about feminism. I'm here to remind you that misogyny is alive and well in our world, and is often perpetuated by people whom you wouldn't give a shit if you hadn't heard about it. But I don't want to talk about that. I only want to speak to women who have experienced violence – women who were raped and women who were abused. I also want to speak to the men
One night he told me he was sorry but he felt he wasn't meeting anybody for sex, because he didn't have his passport and he was worried about getting into the hands of the police, who might go to the wrong person and find him. And he's still afraid. I've always loved his intelligence, but after some time he just stopped communicating with me.
He wasn't talking much anymore. He would stop and lie, saying he was still in love. But he said he wanted to get the truth out there. I have been so much more protective of him as time went on, because I knew he'd be caught up in something so big. The other weekend I saw his girlfriend in the city centre and she seemed happy, although I'm sure he knew she was a liar.
