While “breaking” from my studies I happened upon this article. The Cut usually follows up to the minute fashion news and always has some kind of industry insider information, so I was absolutely surprised to find an article about ‘Rape.’ The article, by Elissa Bassist, follows her accounts of losing her virginity, a torn cervix, and ultimately a realization that is quite controversial. This article has a lot to say about “supposed love” and when rape is actually rape. Rape has become a hot topic this election year. Newly expressed views on Women’s Rights and rape, from the Republican party, have left many with their jaws to the floor. Should the events described in Elissa Bassist’s article be considered rape, and when as a society do we get to intervene and proclaim a victim a victim? Is it ignorant on society’s part to tell someone they are not a victim?

    Liver cirrhosis or liver cancer is therefore known as ‘silent killers’.
    But admit it; sometimes you give to be able to receive something in return,
    don’t you. Sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet light can help to delay cataracts.
