I think that any woman who would wear a t-shirt like that is really really brave, and probably doing a heck of a lot to raise awareness of the issue.

To raise awareness? Are you under the impression that most people have no idea that rape occurs? If you are, let me assure you, people know.

I would like to see the companion T-shirt for men: "I was falsely accused of rape by some lying whore."

We can send a box of them to Duke.

What I meant by ‘raise awareness’ is not that people have no idea that rape occurs, but that society in general tends to ‘sweep it under the rug’ and pretend it doesn’t really happen when, in reality, they would be shocked at how often it happens... it isn’t that often that the public hears about it, or it’s even reported, but living with a couple dozen girls who are really close to each other can be really eye-opening.

And yes, some men are falsely accused of rape, and I have absolutely no respect at all for the girls who falsely accuse men of raping them and think that they’re one of the lowest kinds of liars out there, but to stereotype most rape accusations as being false is really disrespectful to the women and girls who have actually been raped.
