Rape is rape. But somehow, there is a grey-area that allows so many horrific rapes to fall by the way side…never to be spoken about, believed or acknowledged. It’s all too common and absolutely not okay.
Understanding the ‘grey-area’ of rape is also educating us and those around us about what is unacceptable. I don’t know why it is so hard to grasp but I do know that Amy Schumer talking to Oprah about her experience can and will bring light to something that is necessary for everyone to hear.
Amy shares her experience with losing her virginity; she was asleep and didn’t consent. Her boyfriend felt terrible, so she consoled him…BUT she was raped. And now, in the safe place that is Oprah – she opens up about her experience and explains it in a way that needs to be shared far and wide.
Monty sat down with Amy last year to have a little chinwag – and as you can imagine, it was great and funny….AND FUNNY! Catch the podcast below and subscribe to our podcast here so you don’t miss any more of our great pod chats.
