On Adam Habib’s “order” and the entitlement of cis & trans women and non binary bodies


Source: On Adam Habib’s “order” and the entitlement of cis & trans women and non binary bodies

“…it is essential that access to education is understood in the context of continued rape culture on South African campuses. The imposition of a largely cisgender male private security force that has committed such violations needs to be understood as a further dismissal of the barriers that women and non-binary people face in accessing these spaces. It is a further perpetuation of rape culture when private security sexually harasses and assaults students who are protesting. It is another tool to further silence women and non-binary people, to – so to speak – “put them in their place”.
