Whitehouse Petition to Better Recognize Rape of Males
Hey guys! It’s DJ! Older followers might remember me.
I haven’t posted much lately; hopefully I’ll become more active over the next couple of months.
More importantly, I need your help to create some actual change.
Last year I created an incredibly unsuccessful Change.org petition to get the rape of men, as well as others with penises, more recognized in the law.
This year, I’m making another petition, this time on whitehouse.gov. If I reach 100,000 signatures, the White House will create a response, and hopefully create positive changes!
To recap something that probably all of you already know, the current FBI definition of rape excludes a lot of victims; if a person with a penis is forced into PIV sex with a person with a vagina, the FBI doesn’t count the first person as a rape victim. And this is really significant; according to the CDC’s 2010 NIPSVS, the number of men who were victims of forced envelopment is almost equal to the number of women who were raped that year.
I’m asking for your help to change this. Go to petitions.whitehouse.gov, make an account if you don’t already have one, and sign my petition.
And please reblog and spread this? I need as many people to see this as possible.
Thank you so much!
