How to be a Perfect Rape Victim. The emotionally honest geniuses at Robot Hugs made a devastating comic about how frustrating and demoralizing it is to report a sexual assault. The heartbreaking message: If you don’t respond to your rape in the right way, you’re just not credible.
“When I do comics for other publications, they usually have editorial guidelines that require that comics don’t just rant, they also give people tools to chance their perspective or take further action on a topic – to take the next step.
This comic is not that. This comic is not advice, and it is not positive. I am very frustrated this week, and so many of us are hurt and angry. This comic is a reflection of that. I don’t know what the next step is. There’s no perfect next step.”
