Shorts

As we gear up for a nice long weekend, some short little comments. 1. Have y’all been following the “grey rape” discussion? I’ve tried to avoid really engaging because I don’t think some things really warrant a discussion (i.e. the question of whether or not someone was raped if she was passed out and woke […]
