Why aren’t we doing this in all 50 states??
moving to Iowa
is there a way to petition for this to be a required class for graduating in all 50 states???
This needs to be a mandatory class in every high school in every state. In fact, do it more than once; have a mandatory one for junior high and elementary boys as well (obviously watering down the topics to match their ages). THIS is how we socialize men to not add to rape culture. This is needed. It’s astonishing how many men are uninformed about rape and how devastating it is and what rape culture is in general. It reminds me of that quote by Laurie Halse Anderson (author of Speak, where the main character has been raped), where she says that when boys find out the main character’s been raped, a lot of them are bewildered and ask, “So what’s the big deal?”
