CNN Opinion: Intersection between Rape Culture and Down Syndrome

I have a new essay up on CNN about a case in Georgia in which a woman with Down syndrome was allegedly raped, a jury convicted the rapist, and the judge overturned the conviction.

The essay focuses on rape culture over disability, but in the next few days I'll talk more about the disability aspect, my interview with the DA in the case, and some other related thoughts based on reading court documents. In the meantime, please read the CNN piece.
