Day 142: Here’s the thing, [TW: Rape]

If you say shit like

  • If you go home with a guy, you obviously want to have sex
  • If you drink the alcohol he offers, you obviously want to have sex
  • Guys giving women copious amounts of strong alcohol so they have sex with them isn’t rape
  • Stop defending “skankass hoes”
  • Women should be “more intelligent” if they want to avoid rape
  • If you don’t want to be in “that type of situation,” don’t put yourself in that type of situation
  • Why were you out at night by yourself
  • Why were you wearing that dress/skirt/shirt
  • Women who wear those things want that attention
  • Women can’t rape men
  • Women can’t rape other women

That makes you a rape apologist. You are part of rape culture. You are part of the reason why it is so pervasive. You are part of the reason why people don’t believe victims and side with rapists or give them the benefit of the doubt. You are the problem here. You need to change.
