Women can be victims of violence in other ways too that are not explicitly sexual. Men can also be victims of sexual violence. That does not change the fact that sexual violence so often falls along gendered lines, or the legitimate problem of patriarchal structures making the world far less safe for women than it would be otherwise.

Genuinely asking: why the implied flippancy and seeming need to seek to invalidate my point by pointing out the (obvious) fact that other forms of violence beyond the sexual exist too..?
