This is rape culture.
As long as we tolerate this behavior, it will continue. A woman is raped in the USA every two minutes.
This is largely why.
I read a great quote yesterday. I’ll paraphrase: Many people love to say that feminists think all men are rapists, but they don’t. You know who does think all men are rapists?
Every time you let a comment like this slide, or laugh at these kinds of comments–or a rape joke, or make excuses that they’re just being trolls or aren’t serious or whatever-other-rape-apologia-rhetoric, you are validating rapists. You are telling the rapists that it’s okay to rape, that all men are rapists, really.
Stop accepting this behavior. Don’t excuse it. Don’t explain it.
Make it completely unacceptable. Shun friends over it. Speak up against misogyny.
Please, don’t validate rapists.
