Rape Kits and Rape Culture

So, anyone who wonders why people might insist that the continuing problem with sexual assault in this country has not so much to do with human nature and quite a lot to do with the systemic lack of focus on the needs and human rights of women, here’s an example.

How can anyone pretend that there’s just not anything more that we can do about sexual assault when in just one city 10,000 kits went untested?

And, of course, any Republican who dares to pretend that all that tax cuts will do is “starve the beast” or get rid of big bad entitlement programs can add this to the list of the grotesque consequences of their preferred policies.
