melanie martinez deserves the exact same treatment as every other sexual predator exposed recently for their crimes. don’t excuse her just because she’s a woman. she sexually assaulted someone (her best friend) and that’s all that needs to be said.
it’s important to remember that every person is capable of committing sexual assault. just because men are the ones who are mostly caught for it does not mean a woman can’t commit the same crimes. it’s important to remember that women enjoy sex and want sex just as much as men do. they may statistically handle these desires better, but that does not mean a woman can’t rape another person. please respect all sexual assault/rape survivors and do not belittle them because the person who committed the crime doesn’t necessarily fit society’s idea of the part.
Instead of supporting and listening to Melanie Martinez
