Since Meagan beat me and posted her introduction first, I’ll begin by echoing many of her sentiments. I also believe in the power of education and would like to hear your input as to what sort of content/discussions you would like to see on this blog. In addition to wanting to see critical and informative discussions on here, I hope also that we can connect with one another in a way that fosters working together in preventing sexual assault in our society. For me, that may include taking apart ways in which sexual violence is represented in mass media, and constructing together an alternate view in which sexual violence is seen for what it is: systematic oppression.

As you all know, sexual assault is a serious topic—but I believe humor can still be used to analyze and understand it. To better illustrate what I mean, here’s a link to a sexual assault awareness ad that I found on youtube that plays with the idea of sexual assault prevention tips and turns them around to illustrate that the blame should always be on the offender, and never the survivor. Enjoy!
