There Has to Be a Better Way to End Rape Culture: It Isn’t At All Like Stealing $5
Anna Hundert

Thanks for writing the insightful piece, Anna. Unlike you, I’ve never felt uncomfortable with these analogies. However, the “there exists a ‘sex is an exchange' mentality in us” message resonates with me.

Sadly, sometimes I refuse favors or insist on splitting bills so that I won’t take them into consideration to decide whether or not to sleep with someone. Moreover, this is regardless of whether the other person thinks that I need to have sex with them in return. Stupid as it is, I really do think I owe it to them, even if they don’t think so, themselves.

This is so embarrassing. I hope I’m not the only one around here. Anyway, thank you for opening my eyes and helping me to know myself better.
