Read

These are two articles by Emily McCombs that you should probably read. In chronological order, first is My Rapist Friended Me on Facebook and then Why I Talk About Rape. I could pick out the hardest-hitting sentences to quote, but I think it's important that you take five (or ten) minutes to read the entire articles yourself, who ever you are. And maybe you'll want to share them around.

Powerful. They show such a different perspective of rape. I don't even know where to start with this comment but feel I need to talk about what I've just read.

Thank you for this. I too, think we should teach sons to value No and teach girls to value themselves.
