#BelieveWomen, Sauerkraut, and 7 Ideas to Help Men Listen to Women and Other Survivors of Sexual Violence

  • Do I believe that women are responsible for putting on the breaks if drinking/sex are at issue?
  • Do I believe that men are wired (because of testosterone) so that they can’t always restrain themselves?
  • Do I objectify women? If so, how? Do I routinely use the words, ‘bitch’ or ‘slut?’ Do I routinely watch porn? Do I put women on a pedestal? Do I tend to distinguish between ‘good’ women and ‘slutty’ women?
