    I posted yesterday about a new report on the high incidence of child rape here in Cambodia, as well as NGO’s disappointing suggestions for change. I’m still feeling unsure about my take on the recommendation that parents better protect their children – is it preemptive victim blaming, or could better education about rape create safer communities?

    Also, thanks so much for linking to the piece on cis-privilege!
