*Trigger warning*

This article is about domestic abuse

There has been some thought provoking and extremely well written coverage on the subject of the “rough sex” defence over the last few weeks. As someone who has worked with survivors of domestic abuse I find this an alarming development, showing that some will stop at nothing to find a way of minimising abusive behaviour and blaming the victims.

This podcast from The Guardian is an excellent overview of what’s been happening so please check it out and share with your friends because it is through conversation that we can together bring about change.

Also check out this excellent piece by Anna Moore highlighting the work of We Can’t Consent to This and examing the myths behind the “sex game” gone wrong excuse perpetuated to blame the victims of horrific sexual violence.
