Fixed It: Rape is not “sex”

A couple of weeks back I said to a friend that I thought Fixed It was almost done. When it first started I was doing several fixes a day, now it’s only a couple each week, sometimes even fewer. She told me to wait for a while because habits are difficult to break and patriarchy hasn’t changed. Not really. 

I so wanted her to be wrong. 

She wasn’t. 

Here’s the second fix for today. Third is coming soon. 

Oh, and BTW, rape and sex are not the same thing. True fact. 

Also, a school that charges more than many people earn in a year is not “elite”. It’s just very, very expensive. 

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the media’s constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it – even $5 a month makes a big difference – please consider becoming a Patron
