If we actually lived in a ‘Patriarchal Rape Culture’, there would be no laws against it: you’d see it happening on every street corner and nobody batting an eyelid. All depictions of rape in films and TV would have the message that it’s no big deal and that the girl should just suck it up and stop being such a crybaby. That being raped is, in fact, a silly, everyday part of life and as funny as falling off a ladder or stubbing your toe.
But of course, nothing could be further from the truth: in the west, rape is universally considered, after pedophilia and perhaps murder, the very worst crime possible, and depictions in the laws of the land, the education system, the press and other media reflects this absolutely.
In fact, the only times rape is ever treated as trivial or a fit subject for humor is when it happens to men. Which, as you probably know, is where the term ‘Rape Culture’ first originated: a 1974 documentary about the institutionally accepted prevalance of male rape in the U.S prison system. Yep, the feminists stole that too.
