Rape Culture 101

This is a fantastically articulate article about Rape Culture I came across on a blog called Shakesville.

Seeing how April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), I thought it fitting to raise some awareness about why rape is so prevalent in our society and why victim blaming like seen in Listowel mentioned in my previous article is so common place.

Hopefully some awareness can be raised this coming month. I’ve started inundating my FB with links and information and while I am sure I am annoying the fuck out of some people who’d rather stick their heads in the sand, I’ve seen reposts and that’s good news.
