Tumblr collective Permutationofninjas organized an e-mail campaign directed at RAINN on the 15th of March asking them to update their statistics on male rape and to use a more inclusive language. I participated and wrote about the e-mail I sent to RAINN and the response I got from them in this blogpost.
RAINN’s response included this:
We are currently working on an overhaul of our entire website, and will pay special attention to the statistics, definitions and language that we use. We are also finishing up a large project that will provide much more detailed, state-by-state definitions of rape and sexual assault. We expect to add this feature to our website later this spring.
It is now the 5th of July and there hasn’t been any changes on RAINN’s websites yet.
Permutationofninjas are therefore calling for a follow-up campaign on the 15th of July. Details and mail-template can be seen on their site.
Please join us in mailing RAINN to remind them of our concerns on the 15th of July.
