I agree with most of it, but how is running a train disrespectful, as long as it’s consensual (and if it’s not, it goes far beyond disrespectful). Rape culture is disgusting, consensual sex isn’t.
This is a really important and timely topic, and I don’t doubt the integrity of the author. However, I’d have much more respect for it if the first four “recommended articles” listed at the end weren’t all related to hyper sexualized content, including a post on picking the right bra for a date and what it says about you (including Easy, Kinky and “don’t expect to hook up”) and one on the sexual fantasies of women (which included; #10 sex with a stranger, #6 being dominated, #3 having two men, and #1 being taken advantage, which according to the author includes rape fantasies). It’s probably just an unfortunate coincidence, and I am well aware that rape and healthy sexual behaviours are completely different, but you can imagine the confusion some people could have.
Rape culture is disgusting, and for many of us it is such a simple problem to address. But for some, the conflicting messages in the media turn what is clearly a crime into a horrifically messy misunderstanding. Both conversations (rape and healthy sex) are important, but the placement of this article against the ‘recommended content’ highlights just how hard it is to get the most important message out there. Don’t rape, ever.
Thank you for your comment. The way the recommended reading at the bottom shows up is certainly unfortunate and we are doing our best to correct that. You have a good point and we are taking it into consideration. Lorraine C. Ladish – Editor-in-Chief
