You don't know do you?

The man you hang around, or for lack of a better word,

Boy.

You don't know what he's done.

I'm sure the first impression he gave to you was as warm

He had full intentions of having no consequences,

His actions ruined a life and he didn't even get a slap on the wrist.

But tell me how it's a scary time for men.

Tell me how it's scary for men to have consequences for their actions

If there even are any.

Tell me how when it's not safe for men to be alone

With their female friends, cousins, relatives.

How a woman can be passed out and then assaulted,

But the court didn't want to hurt the man's reputation

Because he was a good guy.

Evidence proved the man's action,

And six months was the only price he had to pay.

Tell me how it's scary to be a man in today's world when

One in five women is raped in the U.S.

And they still get blamed for it.

Their clothes, their current state,

How it's still shameful to share the story

Because it's taken as a joke.

Undermined because they might be lying,

Somehow trying to take revenge on a man

That ruined their life.

Every time a woman mentions her struggles and experiences

A man has to interrupt with

"It happens to men, too."

You can't tell me it's a scary time for men

Because it happens to men too

When 91% of people who face sexual assault

Are women.

You can't tell me it's a scary time for men because

One in four girls will be sexually exploited

Before they turn 18.

That's only the ones who are able to report it.

You can't tell me it's a scary time for men

Because rape is underreported.

Imagine these statistics if

They truly reflected the cases that occurred.

Tell me how it's a scary time for men when

Girls can't run around a public place

Without being kidnapped.

A simple run around a lake in the afternoon

Can turn deadly.

Tell me how it's scary when

76% of all human sex trafficking

Is women or girls.

When one in four women faces

Physical abuse in a relationship.

How one in six women are

Stalked

Usually by someone they know.

You can't tell me how it's a scary time

For men to live in this world

When they have let all of these atrocities

Happen to women.

Don't tell me it's a scary time to be a man

When it's always been a scary time to be a

Woman.
