Under fire Bikozulu pulls down blog on rape that many deemed insensitive
Popular Kenyan blogger Bikozulu was on Monday forced to pull down a post on a woman who was raped three time, after many readers slammed it as insensitive and inappropriate.
In the post, Biko had captured the survivor, 23-year-old Enid Ongaya’s story in her own words.
She said she is also battling bipolar disorder.
She narrated how she has been raped thrice and is now friends with all the three men and does not see them as rapists anymore.
“I have moved on from those bad experiences. It has no bearing on who I am now even though it traumatized me and made me resent men so much.
For a while, I always wondered why I was raped then I realised that each time this happened I was in a depressed state and I was sending wrong signals to these men,” narrated Ms Ongaya.
It was the statement “sending wrong signals to these men” that angered users”.

Rape culture is pervasive with these kinds of write-ups. @bikozulu assess your rape culture awareness meter becoz you are perpetuating it!!!
