  1. It really doesn’t matter what you were wearing. You have a right to walk down the street without being harassed or assaulted. I don’t mean to be a troll, but justifications like “but I was covered up…” further the idea that women who aren’t covered up deserve it.

    I’ve caught myself saying the same things. Please, everyone, break the habit, break the mindset.
