Do you feel that men, like Shia LaBeouf, who come out as having been raped should be ridiculed? Why is it that men are ridiculed after they claim to have been abused or raped

Absolutely not. I 100% stand behind Shia and other cis men who have been sexually assaulted. I think a lot of people ridiculed him and other cis men who’ve been raped by cis women because our society is still full of rape culture and sexism… As a society we believe women are too weak and inferior to “over take” a cis man and abuse or rape him… As a society, we believe that a man who is weaker than a woman is worthless. I think that’s fucked up, and just another form of victim blaming, and is 100% not tolerated here, period.
