It’s too late to let it pass.
So, I tell him in no uncertain terms, that real men don’t treat women like we’re all worth a shot. No more than trophies for them to fiddle with.
“I meant no harm,” he stammers, taken aback.

Author’s note: This week in Melbourne, we saw yet another rape and tragic murder of a young woman. And typically, the victim blaming began. As a society, we must do better. RIP Eurydice Dixon.
