I don't often say that. But today, I say it.

There's an ad for Four Corners and online crime (hacking, etc). There's a soundbite from a guy being interviewed: "It's like being raped."

No. I'm sorry, no. As my little bro said, "You can unplug your computer from the wall."

I don't doubt having your business's files rifled through or your money stolen is a horrible experience. But it is NOT equal to personal violence on such an intimate and soul-destroying level. I am going to complain to ABC but I don't know where to start. I feel like sexual assault has been trivialised (it has).

  1. Yes, but by putting this up in your "feminists" blog, aren't you saying that being raped is a woman thing?
    I don't see what a man misusing the word "rape" has to do with feminism.
