In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights. There is clearly something wrong with a society that allows this to happen; our awareness of rape is shockingly small, as even our statistics can’t be trusted due to our inability to define rape as exactly what it is. According to the Bureau of Justice, the estimate of women raped in one year in the United States is approximately 300,000; however, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the estimate is 1.3 million.
We need to stop ignoring rape in the United States, and a way to start is by creating laws that bring only justice to the victims and treat rapists just as they are; criminals. When rapists can receive custody rights, they’re given the opportunity to abuse their victims even further.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”—Frank Herbert, Dune (via quotes-shape-us)
