FixedIt: The carpark is going to be ok

Kentlive reported that a woman in her 20s was sexually assaulted by three men and a woman in her 70s was assaulted by another man who attempted to rob her. Both these crimes occurred in or near a carpark in Tunbridge Wells.

According to the headline, this puts the carpark’s safety in question.

However, given the crimes the article describes, it would appear the carpark is quite safe. Women, on the other hand, are certainly in danger. Perhaps that is something that should rate a mention in the headline.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the media’s constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it – even $5 a month makes a big difference – please consider becoming a Patron
