Required reading: Schrödinger’s Rapist

This article is a bit long but a very good insight. I consider it required humanist reading. If it offends you, dig deeper within yourself to examine the reasons why.

"When you approach me in public, you are Schrödinger’s Rapist. You may or may not be a man who would commit rape. I won’t know for sure unless you start sexually assaulting me. I can’t see inside your head, and I don’t know your intentions. If you expect me to trust you—to accept you at face value as a nice sort of guy—you are not only failing to respect my reasonable caution, you are being cavalier about my personal safety."
