Last night my nephew was curious about why his mommy needed pepper spray so he asked his grandma and mommy, “Why does mommy need pepper spray?” and my mom, his grandma, answered incase she were to get mugged, but my sister’s answer?

“Because I am a woman.”
And that’s the moment I realized we really do live in a rape culture.
