I LOVE how much engagement we’re seeing on the topic of rape culture. I LOVE IT. I don’t love that it’s necessary, of course, but I am so encouraged by how many people have been willing to critically reflect on rape culture and our role in it. Keep rocking out.
However, since I posted an explanation for why I would not be approving comments related to false rape allegations, there have been a slew of comments regarding bias and manipulation of discourse. It became clear that, somewhere along the way, I had failed to make clear what my intention is here.
If you’re one of the folks who made such a comment, and has not seen it published, it’s because this is to be your response. Hopefully the exchange sheds some light on why things are being done the way they are.
