    footnotes can help to inform a story in ways that allow for complexities and nuances to arise and make meaningful connections with other information

    I feel that you are relegating "the rest" to the margins as un- or less-important in a way that completely erases the question of "why".

    Why do people rape?

    Maybe this question doesn't interest you.

    Maybe your focus is more on the carceral - whether that be to punish or to reform.

    Perhaps you are more concerned about the effects on the victims.

    Could be you just want to name the crime and gnash your teeth at the injustice of it all.

    But maybe there are systemic failures and injustices that help contribute to what we could think of as a culture of rape.

    Maybe by thinking and talking together we could begin to address some of these.

    Or maybe rape is just rape and we should focus on that.
