This week I saw a meme of a poster on a social media site that chilled me to my bone. It was a picture of a woman with her head in her hands in despair and the caption above it read: “A rape lasts just 30 seconds…….racism lasts forever.”
It was a pro refugee statement from the self proclaimed anti fascist organisation Antifa (Germany). Presumably the caption refers to the current rape epidemic sweeping Europe, perpetuated by the male Muslim migrants.
I wondered what sort of person, what sort of society, would make such a horrific claim that being called a name or discriminated against is more damaging than being sexually assaulted.
