In light of all the "not all men" comments flying fast and furious over on Gawker and Jez I think it would be useful for everyone to read about Schrodinger's Rapist, again.

This is required reading, and so so so good.

When you approach me in public, you are Schrödinger's Rapist. You may or may not be a man who would commit rape. I won't know for sure unless you start sexually assaulting me. I can't see inside your head, and I don't know your intentions. If you expect me to trust you—to accept you at face value as a nice sort of guy—you are not only failing to respect my reasonable caution, you are being cavalier about my personal safety.

Read it all, it's good.

(especially you unsharer!)
