I know that rape happens to more than just women. It happens to men, genderqueers, intersex individuals and the full range of genders and sexes as well. It happens to those that don’t prescribe to a gender binary system. I do not wish to minimize or erase anyone who has experienced rape or sexual assault. In an effort to mind my privilege, I am trying to only talk about things I am knowledgeable about. However, if I fuck it up, please kick me in the ass.
Additionally, if you would like to contribute a piece about rape, rape culture, and/or sexual assault and its affect on folks of different genders and sexes, we would absolutely adore it.
