Poet Lebo Mashile has slammed those men who have been silence for condemning sex abuse and violation against women.
In a thread, Lebo said her issue was that men were posting more about “aggressive and manipulative” women to point out that women were also abusive, instead of talking about how they felt about women they knew being violated.
“It’s very likely that most, if not all, of the women in your life have experienced some form of abuse. I don’t hear men talking about what they think about that, what they think about other men, what they think about the culture we live in and how it’s actually traumatising women.
“Instead, you post about a demographic of highly manipulative and abusive women, that is tiny compared to women who have been silenced and repeatedly abused who still wake up every day and love your a**es while you pretend this sh*t is not happening all around you. Please tu. Evolve.”
