Why is it on us?

Maybe I’m just overly sensitive, but why does the conversation always return to how women do or don’t respond? Male friends who I once saw as allies continue to minimize our pain.

The fear of not being believed exists because so many of us weren’t.

I am struggling to accept how so many of my friends are belittling that fear. They don’t know what I’ve been through but that shouldn’t matter.
