"Rapists, sexual assaulters, and those who protect them will tell us that they are not unique, that all men act like they do -- with violence. They tell us that to try to convince us it's true, and unfortunately, sometimes, they succeed.
"They are wrong. They are lying. They are trying to normalize something that is not normal, because if they can normalize it, they can't be held accountable for their terrible acts. Choosing to rape isn't normal. Assault is not an inherent quality of being a man. It is vital that we identify this behavior and never de-stigmatize it, never accept those who want us to believe it's the status quo."
