The rate of rape for indigenous women is just horrifying. This is proooobbbably why you shouldn’t be sexualizing their native dress and wearing it as a Halloween costume. It’s a fucking spit in the face.
Intersectionality is important when studying statistics. Furthermore, these horrifying numbers don’t seem to include trans* women, who are averagely raped at significantly higher rates than their cis women racial counterparts.
