Yes There Is A Rape Culture

Last night Monica of Transgriot and I interviewed Melissa of Shakesville and Cara of the Curvature and Feminists about rape and our rape culture.  I was a very good conversation in which both women made some wonderful commentary.  I highly suggest that you check out the podcast.  Simply click on the above image to download it for your listening pleasure.

I don’t often have open threads on serious issues, but in this case I would like to offer everyone the opportunity to share their stories.  This will be a heavily moderated thread, so feel free to discuss in confidence your experiences or how you have healed from an assault.  There will be zero tolerance of apologism or victim blaming.
