Rape Culture

Rape culture is the normalization of the possibility of rape. It can include victim blaming, such as arguing that “he/she/they asked for it” by dressing a certain way, being at a particular place, drinking, or other situations. Another aspect of rape culture is the spreading of the idea that women often lie about rape to get revenge on a man. Oftentimes it is spoken about as if it is not a problem or that it only affects women that really wanted sex, which is absolutely not the case.
