Truer Words Were Never Spoken
Men can do things that we will never be able to do without first brokering some kind of peace with the fear.
Tatiana The Anonymous Model wrote this at Jezebel, discussing Latoya Peterson’s essay “The Not Rape Epidemic” in Yes Means Yes. She talks about what Latoya wrote, and then discusses her own experiences in the modeling industry. It is a powerful read.
I pulled that quote out because this is the single sentence that, if men who don’t get it understood and internalized what it means, would change the most minds. I could be wrong, but that’s what I think.
This is the second post at Jezebel about Latoya’s powerful, personal essay. The other is Meghan’s, here.
