Pouring her frustrations in this vein, she said in a detailed post on her Instagram, “The last few years, especially, this year has been a year of hashtags to end all sorts of gender-based-abuse,

“And it’s surprising the number of big guns we adored being accused of sexual misconduct or rape;as a woman, this makes me really uncomfortable, especially when I come online and see other women run with the arguments that these “victims” are just attention seekers because the “culprits” being accused here are their idols, role models, and powerful people they have adored all their lives”.

She believes perpetrators must not escape punishment due to their status in society.

The last few years, especially, this year has been a year of hashtags to end all sorts of gender-based-abuse, And it’s surprising the number of big guns we adored being accused of sexual misconduct or rape;as a woman, this makes me really uncomfortable, especially when I come online and see other women run with the arguments that these “victims” are just attention seekers because the “culprits” being accused here are their idols, role models, and powerful people they have adored all their lives. But the truth is, no one is accusing the perfect character you have grown to love because these accused people have great PR teams who have raised their images to that idol level that you adore and swear they can do nothing wrong. Take some steps back and view them as firstly, men. See them for the human that they are before any other imagination.

From how our society is set, you might think these powerful men can get whichever woman they want; if the allegations are true, what does it say about these men? Does it mean they think they are so powerful that they can suppress or abuse women and get away with it ? Why can’t they talk to the women and come to a mutual conclusion?

You would think that people of such calibre should know better to avoid certain scandals and rather use their powerful voices to educate or treat such offences with disdain. Well, so many questions race in my mind seeking for reasons when these kinds of news pop up . If they’re found guilty , I pray the pay severely for their wickedness but If the allegations are also false just to “pull them down” , I pray they get vindicated.

I mean we know there are instances where women have lied about being raped but that doesn’t begin to even match up to the number of women who have actually been raped by these men we adore. The revolution will not be televised, it will be hashtagged (#)
