So true. Right now, the only guys I trust not to rape me are my brother, and the three guys who have proven to me that they will stop if I ask them to. Who have proved that they won’t go on unless I also want to. Who have proven to me that they won’t do anything I don’t want them to do.

How hard can it be? If a drunk nineteen year old who just graduated from high school, who shared a bed with a drunk half-naked girl can stop at a non-verbal no… Seriously, then anyone can!
