Obviously, there is a difference between the non-consensual sexual experiences I’ve had and the violent sexual assaults that so many women survive on a daily basis. But just because some people experience what we are traditionally taught to recognize as rape doesn’t mean that other experiences that don’t look the same are not also rape. Any sexual activity in which one party doesn’t give their full consent to begin with, wishes to withdraw their consent after giving it, or is incapable of giving consent in the first place, is rape.

And until we as a society can grasp this simple concept, rape culture and victim blaming will continue to be the norm. Instead of teaching affirmative consent, we will continue attacking the women who speak up about their experiences with non-consensual sex. Silencing women who speak up about rape discourages women from speaking up during sex in the first place, and then punishes them for not finding the courage to say “no.”So stop defining women’s sexual experiences for them just because they don’t sound like rape to you. Take the time to learn about affirmative consent instead. Please and thank you.
