"The next time I am met with a demand for “evidence” when I report incidents of harm as a result of oppression, this is going to be my script: “I am giving you evidence in the form of my lived experience. In so doing, I am asking you to care. About me and about the other people to whom these things are also done. If you care, you will listen. If you don’t, I am politely requesting you be honest enough to simply say that you do not care, instead of obliging me to engage with you in a mendacious argument designed to publicly justify why you won’t.”"
