Rape Is Rape

The FBI has issued a new definition of rape for the Uniform Crime Report!

Rape Is Rape

Out with the old:

  : the carnal knowledge of a female, forcibly and against her will

In with the new:

  : penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim

Read the New York Times article on why changing the definition of rape at a federal level is an incredibly large victory, especially for male victims and other survivors.
