A (for lack of a better word) refreshing anti-rape campaign

The Tumblr blog Bitter Buffalo said it best: “What’s this? An anti-rape campaign that focuses on preventing rape instead of preventing women leaving the house? Holy crap it’s Christmas.” This campaign is from Men Can Stop Rape, an international organization founded in 1997 to mobilize male youth to prevent men’s violence against women by providing agencies, schools, and organizations with direct services for youth, public service messaging, and leadership training: “We build young men’s capacity to challenge harmful aspects of traditional masculinity, to value alternative visions of male strength, and to embrace their vital role as allies with women and girls in fostering healthy relationships and gender equity.” How refreshing! And you’ve gotta love that their idea of masculinity also includes gay men.
