Even though the national conversation about gender violence and r*pe culture is at its peak, there are still many people that simply don’t get it. So, for anyone that still wonders how the violence of gendered power structures affects women, we present you with a brilliant Twitter thread that went viral.
Sure, men may have taken some safeguards when selling something online, for example, like making sure they wouldn’t get mugged or something, but surely they don’t worry about getting stalked, harassed, r*ped, or even m*rdered in their own homes, right?

@tragedythyme is a Twitter user that spelled it all out in her thread about selling a dryer on LetGo, and her story is a must-read for every woman!
This, as horrifying as it sounds, is the reality of surviving as a woman in the U.S. in 2018.
