    Because it gets really fucking exhausting trying to believe in a future where i'm not treated like a crazy person for believing in equality. Because feminists are still considered 'hysteric', 'lesbians', and 'in need of a good lay.'

Street Harassment…Links to a great little blurb about what rape culture is, and what we can do for our society to end it.

As are racism, classism, ageism, abled bodyism, heterosexism, religionism... All are forms of what Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza calls "kyriarchy"

kate or die! // Sometimes I have the time and patience to get from...part 2 of 2

This comic perfectly represents what rape culture is to me. It's the idea that women can't wear anything without being rudely "catcalled", as people call it, or go out at night for fear of being assaulted. I think cultures that are hugely patriarchal, such as the U.S. and middle eastern countries, and how kids are raised allow this type of culture to continue and suppress feminism.

It's terrible that we as a society refuses to take responsibility and guide the way in healing a rape victim. Instead society teaches victim shaming. This creates a false illusion that it is the victim's fault for what happened to him/her.

Which one do prefer to be classified as....we are always classified by society right?

Rape culture. However, I think this ties in with basic safety (muggings etc.) as well. As women, we automatically feel vulnerable and as a potential target wherever we are.

What most people don’t know is that most rapes don’t happen when women are wearing provocative clothing. Most rapes happen by people you know when you least expect it and what can we say then? Nothing just like we shouldn’t excuse the act of another individual because we think it was the victims fault.

Lol, even if the science behind these statements aren't 100%, I think it still makes a good point and is damn funny.

This is rape culture, sold to us by every media form since the Bible. (yes, I'm sure you could cite even earlier yet that book is the "moral guidepost" that makes this so easily ingrained from babyhood.) It's a violent, ridiculous, false moral, construct.
