Unpopular opinion time.
I think the whole, “teach rapists not to rape” thing is really REALLY misguided. Everyone knows rape is wrong. They know it is a crime. You can’t teach people not to rape any more than you can teach people not to murder, or rob people.
It IS NOT victim blaming to give…
I agree that in this cruel world many of the non-sociopaths normal college football players (for example) know that rape is wrong but still do it so teaching rape is wrong is no longer effective but the overarching issue with being taught not to get raped is that most of it is on the premise that you don’t provoke it by wearing skimpy clothing and getting drunk. That is the subtext of the message not there are terrible people conditioned by a lifetime of patriarchy or matriarchy that teaches that this sick act is power struggle to assert dominance, now because we know no matter how many times we tell not to rape it is still an unheard message resulting in horrific sexual violence, therefore we want protection in other form i.e. the buddy system but not messages such as what to wear how much to drink as if it would be their fault if they went naked to a bar
Tumblr where more people are upset about a FAKE story about a girl being sexually assaulted then they are by a REAL story of a group of teenage girls RAPING AN AUTISTIC BOY!
2. Here’s the story you should be mad…
Oh gosh I had no idea this had happened
