Explain to me how exactly we're living in a "rape culture" I can see that in India, but not in America/Britain. Being charged for rape will follow you for the rest of your life, even if it's been proven you didn't rape anyone. Being called a rapist is one of the biggest insults in our society

And no, rapists do not have it that bad. Remember when those two football players were CONVICTED of rape due to all the overwhelming evidence and the media wouldn’t even call them rapists and instead pontificated about how saaaaaad it was that the poor kids’ futures were ruined?? I remember. Somehow I think they’ll be fine.

Remember all the ridiculous number of times that college men raped women and got the most insignificant nothing punishments for it? Yeah I bet they’ll be fine, too. Remember how Mike Tyson was convicted of raping a woman and no one even cares anymore, and he still gets to be on TV shows like How I Met Your Mother? He seems pretty ok. 

IS THAT EXPLANATION ENOUGH FOR YOU????

'Being called a rapist is one of the biggest insults'

But thing is society dances around calling actual rapists, rapists. That’s the whole point.


Plus have you heard teenage boys? ‘Totally raped that game’
'Just raped that test'
They use it as a synonym for beat or won over, which is a big part of rape culture. Power play
