That essay about being a woman on the internet is excellent. But of course I wish it didn't need to be said in the first place. It's a hard thing to explain to many men.

Which is why it needs repeating

It's a hard thing to explain to many men.

Yup. We simply don't live under that constant cloud of low-level fear, so it's very hard for many (most?) of us to imagine what it might be like.

I'm reminded of a meme one of my Facebook friends posted a day or two ago, whose point was, in essence, there is no such thing as "consensual sex", only sex and rape. And since then, I've seen the phrase "consensual sex" all over the place, when I'd never noticed it before.
