Because this matters.

So all my public spaces are talking about rape again, which means that some new things are being said, and some old posts being re-linked, and the Shapely Prose's Schrodinger's Rapist post was put my way again.

I wanted to quote this bit, in particular:

...If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.

This is why I take BadEx seriously. This is why I respond to short, friendly, innocuous-seeming emails with FIRE.

This matters.
