I normally have so much respect for the standards of NBC News and The Washington Post, but, with this most recent round of articles, its depressing to see millions of rape victims swept under the rug yet again.
Personally, I’m a guy who had an experience that would fall under the “unwanted sexual contact,” category of the CDC’s numbers. It wasn’t rape, but damn if it didn’t impact me to the point of tears.
I can’t imagine what it’s like for the multitude of women and men out there who’ve flat out been raped in one form or another and can’t even get it counted in government statistics. (A problem I’m sure is even a larger scope than just the one type of rape I address here.)

Spread this. People need to be educated!
