Donkeys – it is nearly Christmas and a time when the donkey plays a part. As a nation we love donkeys. We give thousands of pounds a year to support donkeys at home and abroad. We also like visiting donkey sanctuaries. And whilst donkeys are nice, we treat them with more care and respect than many rape victims.
Having been tweeting for days asking for support for a petition, the moment I put a donkey picture up the retweets started (in more than just the feminist sector).
How sad that we care more about donkeys, than we do about rape victims?
We have known in the SV (sexual violence world) that this was true for a long time. We need to care for victims – just as much as donkeys, if not more so. But at the moment victims are way down the list.
