'The day we stop getting shocked will be the day we hopefully get it'
Breakfast show host Bongani Bingwa says If you are shocked by the fact that the latest name accused of sexual harassment is Morgan Freeman, then you have missed the entire conversation we have been having about sexual predation.
You see part of the objection to victim shaming is blaming them for not having the foresight to know what the predator looks like. Why were they not discerning enough to foresee that so-and-so was a predator. People say they could easily have said the accused was creepy - why didn't the victim?Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host
That's the point, isn't it? Predators are in your office. Sitting in the car with you. In the cubicle next to yours. You may have shared a womb with them. They wake up next to you each morning. You call them a son; husband; a brother; friend; minister; Pastor or boss.Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host
The day we stopped getting shocked will be the day we hopefully get it. Because maybe I am a sexual predator!Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host
