Dear @EmmaWatson: You Are the ‘Goodwill Ambassador’ for a Rape Culture

Posted on | April 12, 2017 | 1 Comment


Hello, Ms. Watson. Remember when you went to the United Nations and gave that speech about how everybody should be a feminist? April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Ms. Watson,. and the organization for which you are a spokeswoman . . . Well, let’s talk about “awareness”:

A Wednesday report by the Associated Press sheds further light on the extensive child rape problem that exists within the United Nations peacekeeping forces.
The expose focuses on U.N. peacekeepers operating in Haiti, where nearly 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse have occurred since 2004, with more than 300 cases involving children. A large number of the victims included boys and girls as young as 12 years old, many of whom were raped by peacekeepers on a regular basis.
“I did not even have breasts,” one girl, known as V01, or Victim No.1, told the AP. She said she was consistently raped by as many as 50 U.N. peacekeepers from ages 12 to 15.

Some very ugly stuff here:

The UN report eventually concludes the number of sexual assaults is too numerous to describe in detail and involved 134 Sri Lankan peacekeepers. . . .
The AP found 2,000 complaints of sexual abuse over the past 12 years, with over 300 of those involving children. In very few cases are the soldiers involved ever punished. . . .
A woman who was raped by a peacekeeper tells the AP, “As far as the U.N. goes, they came here to protect us, but all they’ve brought is destruction.”

So the organization for which you are “goodwill ambassador,” Ms. Watson, has been responsible for thousands of rapes, including more than 300 children raped by United Nations “peacekeepers.” The U.N. is clearly not an organization in a position to talk about “women’s rights,” Ms. Watson, and the question is, what are you going to do about it?

Let me guess: Nothing.


You are a big phony, Emma Watson. You’re just a rich girl who postures as “feminist” because you want to be admired and praised. You are never going to spend a cent of your own money to do anything to help real people with real problems. Children raped by U.N. peacekeepers? No, we can’t expect Emma Watson to notice such trivial events. You’re far too important to be bothered about such things, you lying hypocrite.
