"Similar to murder, rape is a reprehensible crime, that leaves a body defiled. But rape victims are not like murder victims; they live & relive the event. Worse yet, rape victims can never leave the scene of the crime."

Rape Culture: a society whose prevailing beliefs normalize sexual assault + rape. Ex. uni students chanting "no means yes! yes means anal!". The song Blurred Lines. Society blaming the victim for rape. Republicans coining the term "legitimate rape". MRA calls Elliot Rodgers a "saint" for going on a killing rampage, blaming women for being a virgin. Jolie gets a double mastectomy + the general response is, "noo, now she won't be a sex symbol for me"

Rape culture is a culture in which a male character continuing to pursue a female character despite being turned down is depicted as romantic. If there are sparks, then "no" doesn't mean "no." Rape culture is our culture.
