Is it really that difficult a concept?

It sometimes feels exhausting and overwhelming to have to tell people over and over again that sex without consent is rape. So it was nice to see that Asher had got to the latest bit of reactionary bullshit first.

What depresses me most is that the social standard of rape seems to be somewhat lower than the legal standard. The insane responses Asher is quoting are in response to a Rape Crisis Education - an effort to raise the social standard for rape among young people.

God forbid we should teach young men only to have sex with people who want to have sex with them.
