The gang over at BitchPhD have been exploring Yes Means Yes, with authors Jaclyn and Jessica doing some guest posting. M. Leblanc just responded with this incredibly moving and important post. It's well worth clicking over to read in entirety, but I want to call attention to this comment:
But no woman is "lucky" in this regard. We are not "lucky" when we are subjected to date rape instead of stranger rape, we are not "lucky" when we are subjected to attempted rape instead of completed rape, we are not "lucky" when we are subjected to groping instead of rape. Even those who experience none of these things aren't "lucky."Amen sister.
Having your bodily integrity respected isn't luck. It's a fucking basic human right.
