What a shame is it that some women cannot even support one another in the face of assault…
So, is this the state of Black women in this country today? A state in which, Black women will openly and audaciously dare to challenge the truth of another woman, in support of a man?
I mean, seriously consider the fact that as women, we should know better than anyone, how little respect there is in our society for our truths and stories. In perfect example, I was just watching aLaw & Order: SVU episodethe other day, in which a woman who was sexually assaulted, feared accusing her assaulter of rape because she had authored an S&M themed book, that he read.
Inherently, the reality of her assault became a matter of debate on whether a person that promotes and even likes S&M, can accuse someone of raping them (as if, there is some sordid similarity with sexual acts that are unwanted and non- consensual and rough sex).
