Money Rape Analogy

This Might Be the Best Analogy to Describe Rape You’ll Ever Read

There's a dictionary definition of rape, but some people still struggle to comprehend what nonconsensual sex means. Enter Nafisa Ahmed, a Twitter user who posted a flawless analogy to explain what rape means by comparing it to stealing a $5 bill ("You lent my friend $5, so I can borrow it as well"). Check out her tweets ahead; they've gone viral with thousands of retweets and favorites each.

This is not the first time someone has related rape to stealing. Another Twitter user, Caitlin Kelly, posted a similar string of tweets in 2014 where she compared conversations about rape to a stolen wallet. While it's unfortunate that Ahmed's and Kelly's comparisons are even necessary, hopefully they'll contribute to the further understanding of rape.
