    1. "Vulnerability scares us, very deeply. To feel your body being forcibly penetrated by another human being is an experience of such utter, terrifying vulnerability and helplessness that most people recoil from the thought. To overcome that resistance, to actually identify with the experience and the person who suffers it, is an act of profound empathy, and considerable courage. Most people, frankly, are not up to the challenge; certainly not without a lot of support" ~ David LisakRape is Rape suc [...]


    2. Disclaimer: ARC read via Netgalley. Do you remember hearing about Laura Logan? She was the reporter who was sexually assaulted in Egypt during the protests. It was a gang assaulted and she was rescued, reportedly, by a group of Egyptian women who rushed the men. Instead of expressing sympathy or more appropriate outrage at what happened, several bloggers, newscasters, and op-ed writers attacked Logan – in particular after news outlets posted a picture of her taken when she attended a dinner. [...]


    3. Initial reaction: Jody Raphael certainly opened my eyes to much on its respective subject in "Rape is Rape: How Denial, Distortion, and Victim Blaming are Fueling a Hidden Acquaintance Rape Crisis". Between the personal narratives this book gives from victim accounts to the multiple citations of media figures, high profile rape cases, and analysis of many examples of victim blaming, I think it not only handles its subject matter with multidimensional arguments and sensitivity, but also prompts t [...]


    4. CONTENT WARNING(s) FOR THIS BOOK: Rape (yeah, should be pretty obvious from the title, but just in case, I'm adding a trigger/content warning)*deep breath*This book has a really tough subject matter, and it was emotionally difficult to get through. I had to take a break about halfway through because I was so full of rage at the atrocities that these women (and men too! Although this book focuses on female victims) had to suffer as well as the societal blaming, disbelief, and apathy they endured. [...]


    5. After reading this book, I truly know I'm not alone. The way I was treated after my rape by the police, my community, and my friends is, quite unfortunately, par for the course. In fact, some of the examples in this book show me just how much worse it could be. We live in a culture where rape victims are habitually not believed. Their rapists go on to rape rape rape some more. Police minimize the report, as they did with mine, treating the victim with indifference or, worse, blame and contempt. [...]


    6. There are subjects that are difficult to read about, awful to talk about but all the same it’s absolutely vital to keep the dialogue ongoing. And then there are subjects that you think you’ve heard the very worst examples of but quickly find you’re wrong. What shocked me was not the horrific experiences shared in Rape is Rape – they were frightening and horrifying and I am awed by the bravery of those who shared their experiences – but the sucker punch, for me, was from a much more une [...]


    7. Rape has to be one of the crimes which produces an emotional response in anyone – it is an emotive subject. Because of this it is too easy for any book written about the subject to descend into a vitriolic rant rather than report facts and figures. The author of this book avoids this trap and the women she interviewed all describe their experiences in low key terms which make a huge impression on the reader because of their restrained language.The book covers not just rape of women and girls b [...]


    8. The blurb for this truly scares me.Firstly, rape is both a female and male issue. So I don't know why it only mentions "protecting the rights of women and girls."Secondly, the quotes in the beginning are actually right. There ARE girls out there who will cry rape over bad sex or regretful sex. And if you truly care about real rape victims, you will acknowledge that. Not criticize the people who point it out. You will acknowledge what rape actually is by acknowledging that some of what people cal [...]


    9. Very Conflicting book indeed ! And unless you are doing a research or some kind of thesis on Rape ,stay away from this or unless you are the kind who doesn't get affected by what they read .But if you connect well with characters n feel their emotions ,this book is not meant for you .I couldn't read it beyond some 100 pages .It made me kinda hate myself and my mind started zooming in on false personifications . No offense meant to author or anyone ,it's literally too hard to read .I can read abo [...]


    10. I mean, this was fine, but nothing that blog posts haven't said better? I guess there's value to having a printed book to give people. But there were a lot of places where Raphael wasn't radical enough for me, where she was giving the deniers and apologists more respect and consideration than they are due.




    11. What a compelling case Jody Raphael makes to clarify her message about acquaintance rapes. This is an important book and yet, a very very difficult one to read. Through references to studies on rape and through interviews with rape victims, Raphael articulates some of the challenges that a rape victim faces - especially those raped by someone they know. One, a rape victim is met with indifference and disbelief and is further punished for having complained about her situation. While one may have [...]


    12. Published in 2013, this is an excellent contemporary look at the problem of rape and how, just as it's been throughout human history, excuses are made to trivialize or deny that the rape ever happened, or blame the crime of rape on the victims. The author looks at the recent election and at the comments made by political candidates. Even feminists and other people you think would know better, often in their writing and spoken words, end up blaming the victim. The author's primary focus is acquai [...]


    13. Fantastic book that specifically focuses on bulldozing through common myths about rape. It has a heavy focus on both empirical and anecdotal evidence. Particularly interesting is the way in which facts seem to not matter when it comes to rape, and how there are vocal, influential people who insist on perpetuating untruths about women and rape.The book is more descriptive than evaluative: the author doesn't offer an explanation as to why things are the way they are. But there are other texts for [...]


    14. Rape is Rape presents in clear, concise language the complex and nuanced challenges faced by rape victims and society at large using recent court case studies and case examples. Further, Raphael integrates examinations of where information is being sourced, from the top links appearing in google searches, to television reporting, to blogs and social media outlets. With extensive notes documenting the sources of information presented, you'll have no trouble finding your way to further reading. Re [...]


    15. Very well researched and presented. Includes compelling personal stories as well as presenting research on the prevalence of acquaintance rape. The personal stories illustrate how these rapes are horrific crimes, not to be confused with bad or regretted sex.Acquaintance rape is a hidden crisis where victims are often met with indifference, disbelief or outright punishment. We each have a role to play in supporting victims and working to bring an end to rape culture. Jody Raphael does a great job [...]


    16. Well written and comprehensive. If you're looking to read a book about the emotions and details of rape, I recommend Lucky: A Memoir. If you're looking to get only a snippet of that, plus a bunch of accurate info on statistics, trends, law enforcement, and so on, then read this book. It is not a light read. It is jam packed with data, which is great if that's what you're looking for. I suspect even people who deal with rape issues for a living will find a few things they didn't already know when [...]


    17. This book is well-written, factual and devastating. Raphael does an excellent job of unpacking false rape statistics, rape denial and the alarming prevalence of victim blaming in today's rape culture (in particular acquaintance rape). With the recent media coverage of false claims about women and their biology regarding rape as well as the media handling of the most recent nationally covered cases of rape--this book is a must read.


    18. Jody Raphael gives a devastating look at how acquaintance rape is handled in the world and why rape is rape. She provides thorough research and detailed accounts and outcomes from acquaintance rape victims. I do wish that she would have provided stories from a variety of women who have experienced acquaintance rape and not just first year college women. This may be the case because she is a research fellow at DePaul University.


    19. Wow. As a two-time sexual assault survivor, this was a very heavy read, but in my opinion, an important one. Filled cover-to-cover with statistics damning those who question acquaintance rape victim's credibility, I now feel far more equipped to defend not only myself but all rape victims when necessary.


    20. Not quite as groundbreaking as I'd hoped -- but covers various ways in which rape denial (including media downplay) is fueling the rape crisis. Dissects some of the language around talking about acquaintance rape (and "bad sex"). Not a bad foundational book, but doesn't move the conversation forward as I hoped it would.


    21. Anyone who says this book isn't worth reading is out of their mind. I've read a dozen books on the subject in the last month and this is my first review. Look at my name, I never review anything but HAD to let folks know this is important. Pretty please read t h is and buy a copy for a friend.


    22. Just a note: I would absolutely have to put a trigger warning on this book for anyone who has experienced rape or sexual assault. This book includes both the cold hard facts and the terrifying stories of real women. It can be graphic and unsettling for those who struggle with memories.



    23. A difficult read not recommended for people with rape triggers, but an important one for everyone who hasn't experienced rape and is comfortably unaware of their subconscious biases.
