Democratic strategist Zerlina Maxwell, herself a rape survivor, appeared on Sean Hannity's show to talk about rape. As a result she says she'd received numerous threats of rape.
"I can't even go on my Facebook page; it's full of people wanting to rape me. It's too triggering. The amount of insensitivity is shocking," Maxwell told Salon.
"I don't think that we should be telling women anything," Maxwell said on Hannity's show. "I think we should be telling men not to rape women and start the conversation there."
"Telling every woman to get a gun is not rape prevention," Maxwell later told Salon. "The reality is that we need to be changing how we train and teach young men...We need to teach them about consent and to hold themselves accountable."
Conservatives have since called Maxwell's suggestion "bizarre." But she has some data on her side. In 2011, the sexual assault rate in Canada dropped 10% following a "consent awareness" campaign called "Don't be that guy," Salon reports.
