***PLEASE PREPARE YOURSELF BEFORE WATCHING / READING THIS CONTAINS UPSETTING CONTENT***
This is music video is heartbreaking to watch…And the content is only too true not just in America but in the UK and in fact the rest of the world, the figures are frightening.
It happens to between 65,000 – 95,000 people a year in the UK and only 2910 people face court proceedings.
With 1,070 people being convicted. In 2015 alone figures are up by 37%, it’s highest since being at the highest level since the introduction of the National Crime Recording Standard in 2002/03.
No matter what someone looks like, acts like, dresses like, how drunk they may be, what their profession may entail….This is not ok. The perpetrator is in the wrong and in noway did the victim ‘ask’ for it. It upsets me when people misuse the word rape and throw it around in jest when this is only contributing to making it acceptable to carry out this horrendous act.
Help bring awareness to these horrific figures. This is NOT ok.
