Center for Community Solutions is a non-partisan organization and serves people with any and all political affiliations. As the only Rape Crisis Center for the City of San Diego and 75% of San Diego County, we must speak out when public figures make predatory statements about sexually assaulting women. The “locker room banter” marginalizes and objectifies women. These types of statements have the capability of silencing some survivors through humiliation and justification by abuse and power. In addition, it lays the foundation for others to minimize the severity of the trauma caused by sexual assault. An injustice to one woman is an injustice to all humankind.
