Also wandering over from ONTD...

I think it´s a great essay, sharp, informative and to the point.
What especially struck me was the argument over confusing sex with rape. Here in Germany there´s currently a process going on concerning a famous TV weatherman and his (alleged) rape of (one of his many) girlfriend(s).
It has just started and has already reached a point where I can´t stand to even look at newspaper headlines, let alone the TV or german internet news sides.
The victim blaming is UNBELIEVABLE. Comments range from "But he´s such a nice guy (on TV), he could never be a rapist" to "The stupid bitch just wants his money, just put her into prison." Oh and of course "I want him back on my TV, the weather´s been bad ever since he had to leave, poor guy."

Anyways...just wanted to butt in and say that it´s a great essay =)
