Important Announcement

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

Appropriate and necessary use of the word rape: To describe what has happened to someone who has been forced or coerced into a sex act.

Inappropriate and unnecessary use of the word rape: To describe what has "been done to you" by the IRS and/or US Government by requiring you to pay taxes.

Important Corollary, subject to same rules as Important Announcement #37: If you are a rape apologist and/or teller of rape jokes, you are not a progressive; you're a fauxgressive.

[This announcement will be made annually during tax season until further notice.]
