The Devil’s Gender
by Elham Hafiz
When I sit with girls of any age no matter how different we are
We always have one thing in common
No matter what.
The hows and whens may vary.
But the fact remains that we’ve all been subjected to sexual abuse of some sorts.
From little girls who tell you stories of men too big with hands too big and tongues too big that demolished their young pure hearts,
To teenagers who blamed themselves and lost their souls and had scarred existences,
To women who swear off intimacy, swear off men and swear off openness because they’re reminded that especially in vulnerability they will be violated
And can you really blame them?
When most of the time the devil is a dick that can’t be tamed because of a fucked up society that justifies it’s wild nature and predatory habits.
It’s a tongue shoved inside a babygirl because her diapers were provacative?
A hand choking a teen because she’s just so sexy and he has to have her?
Because she said no and no means yes?
But last I checked no is no and you are trash
A bulge of ugly rubbing against a woman because well she kinda gave him vibes?
It’s never the victims fault
I was sitting in a bus today
Talking to the 5 year old who sits next to me about how he doesn’t want to go to school when this girl screams
I look outside the window thinking it was a car accident of some sorts
But this very smug looking disgusting scum of the earth dick owning creature was masturbating to my neighbor and I’s fully clothed bodies.
Faces I’d say because he didn’t exactly see our bodies.
I’ve been feeling sick the whole day.
I called the cops on the spot but I don’t think anything will happen what with him being a local and us foreigners.
Hatred doesn’t begin to cover my feelings.
If the devil has a gender, it is definitely male.
