it’s yours.
Queen Chess Piece standing up with other chess pieces laying down on the ground It’s in your hands to end sexual violence. We’re over it.

What exactly are we “over?”

We’re over:
the idea that sexual assault is about sex.

We’re over:
looking the other way when we see someone being harassed at work.

We’re over:
dismissing rape jokes and using “boys will be boys” as an excuse for unacceptable behavior.

We’re over:
asking, “what was she wearing?” and “were they drunk?” 

We’re over:
thinking that only women are the victims of sexual violence.

We’re over:
protecting the reputations of perpetrators. 

We’re over:
racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, and ableism.

We’re over:
catcalling and revenge porn.

We’re over:
thinking that attention or accepting a drink equals consent.

What we’ll never be over:

Believing
victims.

Protecting
victims.

Supporting
victims.

Defending
victims.
