Reddit Q&A: What are you trying to accomplish with #GawkingAtRapeCulture?
Maybe you could explain how stirring up fake internet outrage is supposed to help sex slavery or human trafficking victims. Some asshole said something offensive, you’re demanding your pound of flesh or whatever from him and whoever doesn’t jump on your bandwagon. This accomplishes what..?
My outrage is certainly very real, at least to me and a few others and a the few remaining rape victims (whose interviews you can watch at http://wewomanfilm.com/). I’m hoping that Gawker and Valleywag apologizes to the women whose suffering they insulted and whose tragedies they exploited, and for the editors to alter the content of the original post so that they do not continue to upset the victims, their families, and their supporters. And beyond that, I hope to raise awareness around these war crimes, to hold the perpetrators of rape culture accountable, and to do what small actions I can to help make the world safer for women in the future. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
