Campaign reaction


The campaign is good but the emphasis is so bad. As I guy who has been sexually assaulted by a girl it would be good to have that perspective as well. It's not about tits and ass, that's the whole point - it's about someone having sex with you when you haven't given them your consent. And it would be good if people just got that bit - simply - "no" means "no" - forcing someone is wrong whether perpetuated by boy or girl. Girls perpetuate it too - it's not just blokes who commit these offences and it would be good if that could be reflected as male victims of sexual assaults feel very marginalised by the current emphasis.

Rape is wrong. Period. Perhaps you and other men who have been sexually assaulted by women can organize some form of awareness raising to highlight and tackle this issue?

I understand the point you're making but the point of this campaign is not to make the point that rape is horrible - we know that and there are other campaigns that target perpetrators. This particular campaign is to change perceptions of victim-blaming.
Every campaign can't cover every angle so it's unfair to say that this one isn't covering the angle personal to you. It's doing what it's doing and others will cover other points of view.
