In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), rapper Cardi B, real name, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, took to her social media to speak out against sexual assault and to remind her fans of the critical matter.

The rapper also made it her goal to caution parents about how they raise their kids and the important things they need to teach them, especially as they send them off to their schools, daycare, and other places where primary caregivers can’t be present.

Read on to get the details.

‘No Means No’

In a series of tweets posted on Thursday, the rapper came out to address the issue of sexual assault. She encouraged her followers to speak up in the case of any sexual misconduct and not feel any shame.

“Before April is over, don’t forget it’s sexual assault awareness month, no means no! It’s [sic] doesn’t matter what you wear, it doesn’t matter who you are, male or female,” wrote the Grammy winner. “For anyone going through this, the shame is not yours to carry… it’s the monsters who do this.”

In a follow-up tweet, she shifted her focus to parents of young children, adding that they should be a safe space for their children so they could confide in them about uncomfortable situations.

 She claimed that knowledge was crucial and because of that, parents should teach them about their privates and how nobody was allowed to touch them.

“No one is to touch your private parts & never be afraid to tell mommy & daddy when someone makes you uncomfortable.”

Fans Of The Rapper Share The Same Sentiments

Several of the rapper’s fans share the same sentiments with her. After posting her tweets, a fan of hers added more gems for children who might have experienced sexual assault.

A Twitter follower of the rapper mentioned that parents should teach their children that keeping secrets isn’t okay, no matter how trivial it might be. The tweet continued saying, “Sadly fam/friends can tell them [it’s] our secret [and] since they close they think [it’s] ok, no secrets ever!! Also, make sure u don’t use that word either w them so they know secrets are bad and [should] be told.”

The rapper responded in agreement, concluding with, “Yup, that’s how they manipulate kids.”

Cardi B Was Sexually Harassed In 2019

In 2019, the rapper opened up to her fans about how she was harassed during a magazine photoshoot.

“I will never forget how I went to shoot for this magazine and the photographer, he was trying to get close to me like, ‘Yeah, you want to get in this magazine?’ Then he pulled his d–k out! I was so f—ing mad,” the rapper revealed per Page Six. “I was just like, ‘This is crazy.’”

Cardi B is seen at the Balenciaga store for a fitting during Paris Fashion Week in Paris.

She added that she was upset and enraged, threatening to leave and pull out of the photoshoot. “I was like, ‘[You’re] f–king bugging. You know what? I’m out,’” 

However, the magazine owner was indifferent to her concerns. “You know what’s so crazy? I told the magazine owner, and he looked at me like, ‘So? And?’”

Cardi B And Offset Hid Their Son’s Identity To Reduce The Hate They Got

Although the star and husband Offset has finally shared details about their child, fans have also wondered why it took so long, seven months to be exact, to divulge the details.

While speaking to Essence earlier this month, the “WAP” crooner explained that past experiences influenced her decision, adding that the hate expressed towards her first child played a role in her choice.

“We went through a lot of sad things when it comes to [our daughter] Kulture — terrible behavior that not even the older kids have ever been through,” Cardi told the publication.

She added that many people on the internet would post “mean, disgusting things” to arouse a reaction from them. As a result, they decided to protect their feelings and prevent unnecessary altercations.
