These diagrams from the Women’s Media Center’s Women Under Siege project shows the ways in which sexual violence against women has been weaponized by armies in many conflicts around the world.

One of the more disturbing reasons soldiers engage in sexualized violence against women is to promote solidarity among the soldiers, or “unit cohesion.” “[Unit cohesion is] a kind of nasty socialization in which soldiers find something terrible they have now in common." writes Lauren Wolfe, director of the Women Under Siege project.

So please, shut the fuck up and onlookers, stop being so gullible. While I don’t believe ANY relationship is perfect, I don’t think it’s necessary to sit back and almost WISH for the failure of someone else’s union, be it Bey’s or your bum ass cousin that keeps taking “him” back, knowing y’all don’t like his ass. Bye ashy.
