The Rape Culture Myth

It’s not surprising to anyone that the “rape culture” myth was created by feminists, massively exploited, and then spoon fed to the regressive left like chicken noodle soup.  Let’s take a look at this strange phenomenon and dive into mind of a liberal for a minute.

First up, we need a clear meaning on the phrase “rape culture” and the best way to do that is with old faithful – the dictionary.  What does Oxford have to say?

Now that we have a clear definition of rape, let’s define culture.

culture

Rape is disgusting, terrible, and illegal.  This is not just my viewpoint but also the viewpoint of the United States as a society.  Rape carriers serious penalties as it should, and rape is not accepted in the United States.  We don’t throw rape parties.  We don’t pass around and sell women as sexual equipment.  We don’t go to our local courthouse and hang up signs about the number of women we rape.  If an unfortunate rape happens, it’s a crime and charges will be brought.

Clearly we have instances where a rapist manages to receive a significantly lighter punishment than he or she deserves.  It happens, we all know it happens.  Does that really warrant a “rape culture” brand?  If we were a rape culture why would charges be brought in the first place?  Why would anyone bother reporting the crime?  How could it even manage to make it to court?  Could it be that the idea of a “rape culture” in the United States is as crazy as a football bat?

The culture, or ideas, customs, and social behaviors, of the United States clearly identifies rape as a bad thing and in no means is this acceptable anywhere.  Do we have a group of men who believe they are entitled to any woman they choose against her will?  Absolutely. Do these men represent the culture of the United States?  No.  Do we have a group of college men who believe they can have sex with any female student against her will?  Yes.  Does this represent the culture of the United States?  Absolutely not.

Since the topic is apparently extremely difficult to understand, I have created a list of scenarios below should you ever get confused.

  • Scenario 1: Marsha wears a tight little pink dress from Macy’s and goes to party, meets a guy, does the dirty, regrets it the next day, and claims she was raped.
    • Was Marsha raped?  No
    • Was Marsha asking for it by wearing a tight little pink dress?  No
    • Was Marsha a victim of rape culture?  No
    • Is Marsha a lying bitch?  Yes, and hold her accountable.
  • Scenario 2: Marsha wears the same tight little pink dress from Macy’s and goes to a party, meets a guy, says no but the guy forces himself on her anyway, reports what happened the next day.
    • Was Marsha raped?  Yes
    • Was Marsha asking for it by wearing a tight little pink dress?  No
    • Was Marsha a victim of rape culture?  No
    • Was any part of this Marsha’s fault?  No
  • Scenario 3: Marsha goes to a party, drinks a lot and passes out, has unconscious sex.
    • Was Marsha raped?  Yes
    • Was Marsha asking for it?  No
    • Was Marsha a victim of rape culture?  No
  • Scenario 4: Marsha goes to a party, gets her giblets forcibly groped in the hallway, pushes him away and leaves the party
    • Was Marsha raped?  No
    • Was Marsha the victim of a crime?  Yes – a sexual assault since no intercourse happened
    • Should Marsha report this?  Absolutely – and send him to jail.

I hope this helps!
