Hey. I’m going to say right now that I only see SJ blogging as a means to an end; the followers we gain I see only as a sort of resource to help accomplish actual “real” goals.
So, I created a Change.org petition.
The current definitions of rape exclude a large number of victims of all genders. Currently, for example, a man can be force-fed viagra, and be used sexually against his will. And as long as he isn’t penetrated in any way, it won’t be considered rape. This is obviously a bad thing; many people are excluded and not protected properly by rape laws. This must change. The FBI definition might be improved, for example, by adding provisions for acts like forced envelopment.
I’m going for 10,000 signatures over the span of a year? Does that seem like a reasonable goal? By the way, this is my first time doing anything like this, so if you guys have any suggestions or suggested edits to the petition itself, just tell me!
And, of course, if you have a lot of followers, I’ll have to ask you to reblog this. I want to create real change, and create it quickly, and for that, I’ll need a lot of help!
