Thank you for this incredibly informative article on rape/violence against women and the role that men play. I have always thought that rape should be called what it is, a hate crime. One that is almost always comitted by men and is all about control. I cannot understand why we keep ignoring this epidemic of violent crime simply because of whom it is exercized upon: women. I found the comments about men’s not allowing women into the gaming community particularly disturbing, because men show that they are more likely to show their prejudice if they can do it anonymously. Unless we start addressing the young men in our community, and letting them know that Silent No More is our policy, this worldwide problem is just going to get worse.
