“Rape Joke” -Patricia Lockwood

Through a good friend of mine, I came across this poem, called “Rape Joke” by Patricia Lockwood found here.

By the end of the poem, I felt tears rolling down my face. This poem is so beautifully written, and the emotions are so raw that my heart ached.

Having been a part of student organizations dedicated toward advocating for survivors of sexual and relationship violence and educating peers about consent and rape culture, I felt extremely moved by the poem.

I just wanted to share this powerful poem with everyone.
