    What's rape culture?
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    "Rape culture" in the West is an invention of feminists who have no perspective of what life is like in other parts of the world.

    For the record, the perspective is that things are even worse in other parts of the world. There's bad, and then there's ungodly awful.

    I'm quite torn about this definition, finding it too drastic a hyperbole since it puts the majority of males on the defensive, the same males who aren't rapists. But I can't deny that a large percentage of women experience rape or rape attempts, needing to go excessive lengths to avoid the possibility of it happening. The question to ask is why women are held responsible for being sexually assaulted, when the responsibility for the assault should reside with the perp.

    Yep. Doesn't mean you can't raise awareness of it a little closer to where you live.

    Yep, victim-blaming. Probably the core of rape culture IMO.

    Since victim-blaming is still a thing, yes.

    I have talked to a lot of feminists, none of them have ever been raped and none of their friends have been, either. They have just heard or read somewhere, some place, some girl was raped. Guess what, that is always going to happen. But it is far from rampant.

    I live in New Zealand and officially we have the third highest incidence of rape in the world...at the same time as being one of the world's five most peaceful countries. A bit of a logical disconnect, don;t you agree? This is why I am so cynical about rape statistics and reporting in general.

    You really need perspective, try just traveling in some third world countries as a woman alone.
