This Is Rape Culture
This is a tough one, so buckle up.

Child brides, Bacha Bazi, ISIS slavers, Boko Haram rapists, rape as a weapon of war, corrective rape, immigrant rape, human trafficking in the West, Vatican rape, military rape, prison rape, rapist visitation rights, news and politicians as rape apologists, the rape kit backlog, police rape and a lot...LOT more.


We need not say more.

We are going to let the title, these clips, and the sources below speak for themselves. What conclusion you draw from them and what your reaction is, will say more about you than it does about us. Keep that in mind when commenting.

Did you know about these issues?

Did you care?

What do you have to say about it?

Are you an apologist, just apathetic, or do you actually give a shit?

Let us know.


Rape Culture is an environment in which rape is prevalent and in which sexual violence against women is normalized and excused in the media and popular culture.
