History of the #11thPrincipleConsent #RapeCulturePyramid
Sometime in mid-2016, Cervix created this graphic and posted on the 11th Principle Facebook page. Eventually it went so viral that we had to remove the post because the troll harassment level was far past what we could handle. Below are the previous 4 versions of the Rape Culture Pyramid.
