To those that say violence never solves anything: Please stop saying that.
Literally, violence solves things all the time, ALL THE TIME.
You are actually making the situation worse by repeating this falsehood, and setting a double standard that reeks of racism, misogyny and homophobia.
This banality is a double victimization that tells those who are literally fighting for their lives they do not have the right to defend their lives.
That the “high road” of self extinction is the right one.
Allow yourself to die, be beaten, raped, exploited, shoved back in the closet – just don’t ever fight back because that’s wrong.
