Rape culture. It’s been around for a long time. From slut shaming to the higher authorities not taking sexual assault victims seriously, the theory that society enables rape and sexual assault is alive and kicking, most especially today in light of various scandals.
But in educating the public that no means no – albeit that very statement being a rather obvious yet often ignored rule – the posters, the fliers, the blogs, and the protests that want to educate people that “It’s not the victims! It’s the rapists!” – THEY have aimed their backlash at only one perpetrator.
Men. Men all around the world need to be taught not to rape.
Men… *snarls* the scumbag of the Earth. I mean all of us are rapists. That’s why you need to educate us the same way you need to educate blacks not to steal. The same way you need to educate Mexicans not to sell drugs. Men – such vile, repulsive creatures.
In fact, how dare these 14,000 men in the military come forward as sexual assault victims! Why do we put wimps in the military?
How dare the male prisoners in juvenile prisons even utter a word about the female staff members who victimized 10,000 of them! Females can’t rape males!
Oh, and the boy from Canada who was raped by 4 women – yeah. Perhaps some time at the gym, pumping iron will give him the balls to fight back.
And for those of you who can’t take a hint… [/sarcasm].
Rape is rape, regardless of gender. If you penetrate with your penis or your finger, caress or stroke, and/or ride the D without the consent of the individual, you have forced yourself unto someone and in turn, victimized them. Rape is not the penetration of the penis. Rape and sexual assault means taking advantage of someone and physically and forcefully objectifying them.
Though ‘statistics’ tells us that women are most likely to get raped than men, we should not turn the blind eye to those who have experienced being sexually oppressed.
So here’s a hint for all our ‘politically correct’ fighters out there who want to put an end to rape: educate both men AND women not to rape.
