THE SECOND RAPE
|Letra:||Every 45 seconds a woman is raped|
Our sexist culture allows no escape
The is violent crime is
far from obscurity
When the rate of victims is one in three
Society conditions men to be
And our indifference perpetuates it
With derogatory language that tends to
Making it easier for men to victimize
And the pornographic images that help
Women as legitimate sexual prey
When sexism is embedded in our judicial system
no surprise why the courts won't listen
And the role of attacker and survivor become
So the majority of rapes are never reported
The threat of rape is always
It's like a poison that saturates the air
A society stricken by a cancerous
Where men know they can do as they please
You tell me the punishment for rape
tell me how much jail time it will take
When one out of three women will be raped
You tell me
what it's going to fucking take
Do you see me in my low cut shirt
Or high heel shoes or a
Woman is the victim you desire
You say you can't resist your predatory fire
tell me why I stand guilty and accused
You tell me when I'm beaten an abused
When it's my body
that's been raped and defiled
You tell me why I'm the one on trial
Defense attorney?: Do you
know the man who "allegedly" attacked you?
Victim?: Yes I know the man who raped me.
attorney?: And isn't this gentleman a friend of yours?
Victim?: Well I thought he was a friend of
Defense attorney?: And were you drinking that night he 'allegedly" attacked
Victim?: I had a drink or two but is that a crime?
Defense attorney?: I'll ask the
questions if you don't mind!
-What were you wearing: How did you act?
Victim?: My wardrobe is
not a reason for some guy to attack.
-I didn't act in any way to bring this on
Why am I on
trail? What did I do wrong?
Defense attorney?: Could you tell the jury why you let this
Victim?: I was in shock
I couldn't stop him.
Defense attorney?: You claim that you
were raped but how do we know?
Victim?: I said no, I said no, no, no!
Defense attorney?: Isn't
it true you're just a woman scorned?
Victim?: I'm a woman who's been raped and torn.
attorney?: Your honor, I demand that this case be dismissed,
-it all comes down to her word
I may not have bruises all over my body
I may have been drinking while at the
But when I went to his room I never would have guessed
That he would force my no to mean
You tell me why I'm guilty of this crime
You tell me why the responsibility is
When women suffer a second rape during trial
Courts help rapists to violate and defile.
