Damn right I’m saying #NotAllMen.

There’s a reason for the axiom “men are afraid that women will laugh at them; women are afraid that men will kill them.”

You desperately need to brush up on your statistics, Jay…

You can read that for yourself, but I’m still gonna quote parts of it…

“One in five women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives”

That is, 20% of women and 1.41% of men.

“46.4% lesbians, 74.9% bisexual women and 43.3% heterosexual women reported sexual violence other than rape during their lifetimes, while 40.2% gay men, 47.4% bisexual men and 20.8% heterosexual men reported sexual violence other than rape during their lifetimes.”

That is referring to sexual assault; things like groping, forced kissing, etc.

And let’s just go ahead and admit that 100% of women experience sexual harassment in the form of cat-calling and the like.

By your logic, there’s a very tiny group of men (and one or two women) who are traveling the country serially raping mostly women and some men. Now, it’s true that statistics suggest that only 6% of men are rapists, but this statistic can be called into question considering that 1) an estimated 63% of rape is unreported and 2) nearly 70% of rapes are committed by people who are close to, and often trusted by, their victims.

So Jay? Do me a favor and retire #NotAllMen. It doesn’t have to be all men for it to be one too many, and #YesAllWomen have experiences ranging from sexual harassment to outright rape.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
