Recommended reading: Laurie Penny on rape culture

Via just saying in comments at The Standard, I recommend this piece with a big trigger warning for sexual assault.

Old, white, powerful men know what rape is, much better, it seems, than rape victims. They are lining up to inform us that women – the discussion has centred around women and their lies even though 9 per cent of rape victims are men – do not need “to be asked prior to each insertion”. Thanks for that, George, not that it’s just you.
