What’s your favorite analogy for consent? Borrowing $5? Drinking tea? Lending someone your car? All of these analogies have become popular online. In “There Has To Be A Better Way To End Rape Culture” Anna Hundert discusses how these descriptions both succeed and fail to capture the problems at the heart of rape culture. These exchange-based analogies for consent, she explains, focus on rape as a sexual act that happens to be lacking consent, when it is truly an act of sexual violence. A thought-provoking commentary.
