Out my way, a young girl 15 years old was brutally raped, robbed, and dehumanized while others watched, cheered it on, and took pictures. When I first read about this horrible story, I thought about my young granddaughters, my nieces, other young girls, and women. In fact, all of the females I am related to or know crossed my mind.
On a daily basis, females are disrespected, abused, degraded, and misused. What I have never figured out is why would males treat women in that way when it was a female who birthed them into this world. Their mothers carried them nine months in their womb, suffered morning sickness, sometimes fainting spells, and most of all severe, unbearable discomfort called labor pains. Yet, we have some men that think nothing of that and will treat females as if they are nothing or like garbage.
Many times you'll hear females being blamed for being the victim, which is just as insulting as taking advantage of them and doing those horrible things to them. Some people's fingers point toward cultural as being the culprit for this type of behavior coming from males. But is it really?
