I Am a False Rape Allegation Statistic


Content Warning: This article contains graphic descriptions of and discussion of sexual assault.

Yes, there are going to be men who realize they have been abusers, harassers, and rapists. That is not going to be easy for them to hear. Yes, men are going to realize that the language that is a part of their everyday lives is degrading and violent. It will not be easy change their tongues. Yes, men are going to realize that the economic, political, and social clout they enjoy is the result of thousands of years of repressive laws and customs aimed at ensuring their dominance, and much of that has to do with causing physical harm to women to secure their silence. And that is going to be really, really uncomfortable to hear. The truth often is. —Feminism shouldn’t make men comfortable (via brutereason)

I don’t believe the 1 in 4 statistic. I think it’s more like 2 in 3, or even 3 in 4.

When I got nominated for the ice bucket challenge this summer, this is what I did. I didn’t donate to ALS research and I didn’t dump ice on my head. I split my donation between The Children’s Heart Foundation (in memory of a friend who died from complications of a congenital heart defect), The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (to honor far too many people) and RAINN (because an American is sexually assaulted every two minutes). Even though that internet trend is over, I just want to remind you that there are people and organizations trying to better the world. It shouldn’t take a social media challenge to support them.
