Comic: Rape culture, victim blaming, and the lies we hear

I’ve been working alongside good friend and very talented artist Lily Franklin to create a teaching comic about rape culture, victim blaming, myths in our culture, and how to fix it. It’s been an adventure, for sure.

I’ve gotten advice from three great comic writers and revised the layout of this thing more times than I can count. I’ve also cut down what was probably 3 or 4 times this amount of writing to what you see here. I’m pretty proud of it, and I hope it is informative, readable, and helps talk about something I’m insanely passionate about.

Minor trigger warnings below for discussion of rape/sexual assault and victim blaming. There is nothing explicit or graphic, but be cautious if talk about such things in general is triggering.
