YOUR GUIDE on not publishing articles that justify rape

A series of disastrous Washington Post columns show why this is needed, so we’ll keep it simple.

Tara Culp-Ressler and Annie-Rose Strasser offer a step-by-step guide:

1. Does it defend or sympathize with rapists?

2. Does it fault the victims, instead of those who committed a crime?

3. Does it downplay illegal activity by using more casual terminology for rape?

4. Does it use rape as a hook in a ‘trend piece’ meant to draw sweeping conclusions about society’s moral depravity?

The complete guide.
