now this is cool – basically a message from the highest place down: Obama’s administration has effectively made it a national priority to change the rape mentality/culture.  especially in the light of all these rape stories across colleges with many going perpetrators going unpunished, with some not even recognizing their actions as rape, it is such a great campaign and i hope that someday, all women (and men!) can be treated with respect as a basic human right, and that no one even thinks that it’s an ok thing to joke about rape or to do actions that constitute it.  no means no, and consent must be present (which is not possible if someone is intoxicated or passed out, or otherwise mentally incapable of making that decision).
