When it comes to the subject of Rape there are, as I see it, four types of men in the world.
- Rapists who have been caught (a small group)
- Rapists who have not been caught (a large group)
- Men who would rape a girl, provided the opportunity (a disproportionately large group)
- Men who would not rape a girl, and might even fight to protect her (a disproportionately small group)
To the young girls and women of the world – I am sorry. I am sorry for what men have become…what we have failed to become. I am sorry for the pain we have caused you, for the pervasive abuse (and worse) you have endured, because the world is full of evil and depravity…and so little justice. I am sorry for your tears, sense of helplessness, feelings of abandonment, for how we have failed to protect you, to respect you, to give you the tenderness and love you deserve.
I am so sorry.
