Enough is Enough.

Enough is enough. It is time we ended rape culture, once and for all. Rape cultures demonstrates the ways in which society blames victims of sexual assault and normalizes male sexual violence. It is frequently preached about via social media and when a case like this one comes to light, the amount of support from strangers is astonishing- yet we are still teaching our children not to be raped, instead of teaching them not to rape. Brock Turner’s father claims his son’s life is going to be ruined over “20 minutes of action”. This is not a typo. This is a direct quote.

–from the Huffington Post:  “Brock Turner is Reinforcing Rape Culture.”

This column by Jennifer G. Bird says everything I want to say. Enough already.

I'm an out, kinky, bisexual, cisgender woman with a penchant for making the world a better place. One of the ways I seek to do that is through this blog; another is through my volunteer work at the Center for Sex Positive Culture in Seattle. I'm also proud to be a parent of two fantastic people who happen to be teenagers right now.
