Finding out that what I had been told – “rape is about violence, not about sex” – was only partially true last week in class really fucked up my head.
Ends up that, yes, it is about violence – for the victim.
For the perpetrator it’s about sex.
…and somehow that makes it seem even more wrong.
Was I naive to think that the first statement was true?
Learning new things isn’t always fun and games, but it sure does make you think.
