  • It’s rather disappointing that the e-mails sent out about this event always mention statistics in regards to women. It seems like men and transgender individuals shall always be invisible.

    • Too true. It’s always about women for some reason.

    • It’s not that tbtn is trying to exclude men or diminish their experiences. Our events are open to all genders/orientations, but are primarily frequented by women. You know why? Because (as the statistics will show you) 1 in 3 women REPORT (not have it happen to them, actually go through the arduous process of reporting it) a rape in their lifetime, however, it is estimated that 1 in 12 men will be raped in their lifetime while even fewer report it.
