Safe Space: Rape

I was chatting to a couple of friends in the pub about the stuff that had come up in the post on rape figuers in South Africa, and two of them said that they would be happy to talk about the issues, and their own experiences, but they didn't want to highlight it in their own journal (because it would feel like they were making a point), and they were worried that people would comment saying they were naive for the feelings/ideas/problems they had.

And so I said that, if they wanted it, I'd put up a post for people to leave comments on. I'd turn back on anonymous commenting, and I'd make it clear that I wasn't going to tolerate any kind of negativity. Asking questions would be ok, telling people that they were in the wrong would not.

So here it is.

I don't want anyone to feel any kind of pressure here. If this fizzles and dies with no comments then I'll survive - but when two friends say that they'd find it useful then who am I to say no?
