When I first started writing about marital rape back in 2009 I couldn’t have anticipated that it would become one of the key issues to bring people to this blog. But it is, and so I’ve got into a bit of a cycle now. The more I post about marital rape for instance the more likely it is that this blog becomes a landing place for people searching for information about it, and the more people who land here having searched for information about marital rape, the more I get to see the search terms people are using for it, and the more I get to see of those the more likely I am to write about the subject again, and on and on it goes.
My previous posts on this issue include:
Which bring me to this, the latest instalment in a series I’m tempted to subtitle “when the fuck are people going to understand that rape is rape is rape no matter what (if any) relationship, marital or otherwise, the perpetrator and victim/survivor have with each other.”
Once again I’ve gone through the list of search terms that have brought people to this blog in the last 12 months and selected all those that relate to ‘coerced sex’ (rape), ‘forced sex’ (rape), ‘sex while sleeping’ (rape), and rape, either within marriage or some other ‘intimate partner relationship’.
