Fixing the Language of Rape Culture

From Glen Canning, father of Retaeh Parsons: “There’s no such thing as non-consensual sex. You either had consensual sex, or you committed rape. Feminist Erin Matson did some editing on a Washington Post article about the recent charges against Jared Fogle. Fogle did not plan his business travel around repeated ‘sexual encounters’ with underage girls. He planned his business travel so he could rape children. Fogle did not travel to New York City to engage in ‘sexual acts’ with teenage girls. He went to New York City to rape teenage girls. Getting the language right about rape shouldn’t be that hard.
