I spotted this on Tamen’s blog this morning. I will let him explain:
Permutationofninjas are asking people to e-mail RAINN on the 15th of March 2014 asking them to consider using a more gender-inclusive definition of rape for their statistics and rape awareness campaigns. More specifically to ask them to include made to penetrate – a form of sexual violence which 4.8% of US men report in their lifetime and which 1.1% of men report in the last 12 months according to the NISVS 2010 Report from the CDC.
Please consider joining us in sending such a mail. The link in the title of this post contains a template one can use.
Please join in and help convince RAINN to use a more inclusive definition of rape. Pass the word around and remember: be polite. We are trying to get them to change their definition. No matter how annoyed you are with their current position, voicing that in the email will not encourage them to listen to you.
