benjamin is also willingly engaged in a community accountability process. he is in no way “getting away with rape”. he has engaged with, has acknowledged and is fulfilling the survivor’s demands. this is a restorative justice process which he has willingly engaged with at the request of the survivor and his community
We’re aware that Ben is engaging in a community accountability process at the request of the survivor, but we’re also aware that he’s broken agreements within that process and refused to allow full-disclosure of his rape history and his HPV to past and current partners. We’re aware that he’s consistently tried to hide his actions, despite making agreements to disclose them. This poster campaign has been launched internationally as a public awareness campaign so that people can be fully aware of Ben’s sexual history as a rapist and a carrier for HPV when choosing to engage with him. We believe it is everyone’s right to know the history of who they are sleeping with so they can respect and protect themselves. We believe that breaking the silence around rape and STI’s is a necessary aspect of any community process.
The fact that Ben is engaging in a process to address his actions should not be seen as a reason to maintain silence. We support using all tools available to break the silence around rape and to allow full-disclosure of predatory actions.
whaaaat?! this is bullshit. clearly benny boy *has* got away with rape which is why this whole thing exists. and, breaking agreements during an accountability process is in no way restorative to say the least. are you serious? defending the rapist is rape culture at it’s best. wake the fuck up.
