This is Not an Invitation to Rape Me

This is Not an Invitation to Rape Me is a well-designed, informative website that deconstructs the myths surrounding rape in an attempt to eradicate victim blaming. Categories include dress, intimacy, drinking and relationships. It's a great way to parse the entrenched beliefs that lead to victim blaming, i.e., just because my skirt is short does not mean you get to grab my ass (believe it or not!). Please check it out and encourage others to do so as well.

Reblogged this as a direct quote. Hope that's okay. I just had nothing better to say and I want people to check that site out. Wonderful find, per usual. Miss you.
