I have never before followed a writer here on Medium, despite my email subscription and daily check-ins. You are the first I have hit the follow button for. When I have heard stories multiple times from my girlfriends, two in just the past week, about men being gently rejected by them and then immediately threatening them…..we have a serious problem. One friend went on two dates and liked the guy but wouldn’t go home with him the second date. He wrote her the next morning calling her every name in the book and telling her to die horribly. Another was told to “get raped” when she said she wasn’t interested. This is just a small sample of what is going on in our rape culture world. It happens every single day. Thank you for the well written article. It is just a shame that it has to be written at all.
