Lê Vĩnh Tài | You’re washed away. Along with the past. (333)

“Tôi là người cầm bút tự do, chưa bao giờ quan tâm đến hội nhà văn VN, nên trong vụ này tôi cũng không bức xúc, không phát điên – chỉ thấy ghê tởm.
Nhưng có nhiều người cứ thắc mắc, “nạn nhân tiếp theo sẽ là ai”, tôi lại thấy buồn cười. Xin thưa, nạn nhân tiếp theo là con gái của quý vị, những cháu không chọn chỗ sạch sẽ để sống, lại theo con đường của mẹ lội trong bùn. Nạn nhân tiếp theo nữa sẽ là ai? Là cháu nội, cháu ngoại của quý vị.
Không có cái hội đó các quý vị không sáng tác được hay sao?”

Lưu Thủy Hương
__________
How do you end the vicious cycle of sexual violence?
It’s simple, you leave it, you cut your tides with it. Why would you follow an institution that treat 50% of the population like meat? Something that is consumed and thrown away like garbage.
Vietnamese women are the backbone of society in Vietnam, while their men spend half of their time in cafes and bars.
Women are not just flowers, we bear the seeds which have given birth to generations of men.
Indeed, I feel disgusted, I pity your mother, your wife, your daughters, and especially your SONS, who will grow up to be exactly like you.
Like the taste of bile just there in my mouth!
Trâm.
