What exactly are we “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.

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.

thinking that attention or accepting a drink equals consent.

What we’ll never be over:

Believing
victims.

Protecting
victims.
