Trigger warning: this post deals with rape and its aftermath. Filmmaker Jessie Kahnweller explains why she created the film, 'Meet My Rapist." The film is included at the end of the post. "When you slap me on the ass without asking, it really reminds me of the time..." I look back at my boyfriend for the evening who I'd met two hours earlier in the bathroom line at one of SoHo's most exclusive (douchey) clubs. After a night of buying me shots of tequila,...
