This comment was by Danny in reference to the post – We Need to add Men to the Conversation About Rape—But Not in the Way You Think
A brilliant ray of sunshine on the depressing gloom of the conversation on rape. All to often men are told that our place in the conversation on rape is either being solely responsible for stopping rape (apparently sharing gender with rapists makes men collectively responsible), as support structures for female rape victims, or teaching the next generation of men not to be rapists as if thats our default setting. That’s it no more no less.
It’s not very often (even around here) to see someone actually be inclusive of men in a manner that recognizes that men have more to contribute than that. A man might be a survivor. He might be a witness. He might be a support center worker. He might be a rapist. You can’t just say men are perps and men are responsible for stopping rape and then leave it at that.
