scared

Students in my class shared an every day fear of being kidnapped at the mall, at Walmart, walking to/from class, walking outside of their homes, interviewing for a job, etc. In past semesters, we have often talked about “what do you do on an everyday basis to avoid being raped or assaulted.” Typically, male-identifying students saying “nothing”/”it’s not something I think about.” Female-identifying students have long lists that include having pepper spray at the ready, having a gun, etc.

I felt like this was a good post because instead of viewing things as a victim your are seeing things from children who are actually scared to become one.
