Rape Culture Must End

Since I’ve started The Consent Campaign, my PR campaign, I’ve realized that people truly do not understand the correct meaning of rape culture.

When I explain the purpose of The Consent Campaign is to end rape culture on college campuses and to express the true meaning of consent, I receive mixed thoughts on rape culture. One man told me that he didn’t believe rape culture was a part of his life because, he’s “never known anyone who was raped.”

For those who are unsure of what rape culture is, let me give a quick explanation of it:

Rape culture is treating sexual harassment and rape as a norm. Violence is seen as sexy. Rape culture is having comments like, “You should feel glad that someone found you attractive enough to rape” be seen as funny or a hurtful compliment. Rape culture treats rape as a punishment (rape in prison).

Rape culture is comments like this in response to rape:

These are only a few examples of rape culture. But all of these affect us in our every day lives. Finally Feminism wrote a blog post that I found to be the best explanation of rape culture that is easy for everyone to understand and relate to.

Rape culture can no longer be ignored. We all must take a stand against this violence. We can no longer treat this as acceptable behavior.
