One of the most controversial points in the modern discussion of rape is consent – by failing to communicate, rapes can sometimes occur without the rapist even understanding what they’ve done or why the victim feels the way they do. That’s why Alli Kirkham started a simple comic illustrations series about rape and consent.
Comic artist Alli Kirkham helped clear the question up with a series of 7 comics that illustrate sexual consent issues with everyday situations that are easier for everyone to understand. The comics series blew the internet with a rush.
1. You are staying until it’s done (The first rape and consent comic to be published)
2. You said I could have it once
3. You said you liked it
4. You said you wanted it
5. You are my wife and it’s your duty
6. You owe me
These are a great guide to visually understanding issues of consent and how to keep yourself safe, regardless of whether you are male or female.
7. You are asking for it
