FBI’s definition of rape older than Twinkies, the Empire State Building, and Betty Boop

The Empire State Building: completed in 1931.

Ms. Magazine has a great article on this, along with a link for how to take action.

My question is: What’s taking so long? It’s absolutely absurd that anal or oral sex isn’t in there; never mind statutory rape, rape with an object, or male rape.

Rape isn’t just a women’s issue, it’s a HUMANITY issue. Women AND men should feel free to walk down the street without being sexually violated, and know that the law and definition under the FBI protects them from that. Wake up, Robert Mueller. Let’s enter the 21st Century.
