This always makes me cry.
God damn it makes me sad
we live in a society where if a man gets raped it is not taken seriously because we have built this ideology that a man can’t turn down sex or be able to get raped by a woman because men are “supposed to enjoy sex”.
Sexist double standards like this are what make rape culture real and extremely problematic in society.
Rape culture isn’t real. Our society doesn’t promote rape as a good thing. It’s punishment is almost as harsh as murder, often times.
Sexist? Oh yes, very sexist. But it’s sexism done by both men and women, and was put in place with things like the primary aggressor laws. Painting men to be primary aggressors and arrested more than women when it comes to issues like this. The definition of rape in this country (being US centric, I know) is forced entry. A person can be falsely accused of rape, and often times that’s the end of that person’s professional career.
Don’t say we live in a rape culture, we don’t. Rape is not a culture, it’s a problem that comes down to an individual level.
Thank you for informing me of this i’ll be sure to do more research on the topic since it would appear i might not know as much as i think i do. i’ll be sure not to throw around the phrase “rape culture”, next time such a topic like rape comes up again until i do more research.
Read through this, it’s a national source disputing rape culture.
I’m touchy when it comes down to this stuff, it’s the person, not the society.
Reblogging to make this point…

mememolly has a great rule for shooting web video: compose your shot so that it’ll make a great gif.
If a meme (in the broadest sense of an ‘idea’) lends itself to translation from one format (YouTube video) to another (Tumblr gif, reddit image macro) it increases its range of possible host platforms.
The more commonly accepted formats there are on a platform, the greater the range of possible memes + expressions.
It’s why I’m ultimately bullish on Vine as “Twitter video” and why I love the rise of the “viral” text post on tumblr. Both widen the paradigm of possible commonly accepted expression within communities.

Being a man is like being a dog. We are expected to be strong and loyal to earn our keep. Women are like cats. They aren’t really expected to do anything. If they choose to be productive, cool, but no one requires them to do anything.
Dogs are seen as violent and stupid while cats are smart and elegant. When they get into a fight, the dog is always seen as the aggressor, even though cats can absolutely be violent and irrational. Doesn’t matter if the cat started it or not, cause in the end, the dog will be punished and the cat will be cuddled.
Dogs are expected to do the dangerous jobs like herding and police work. Cats, at most, are expected to be cute and nap.
People automatically assume that dogs are dangerous, but have no problem going up to pet a strange cat. Dogs are more likely to be put down for attacking a person than a cat. As in more likely to be punished for the same crime.
Don’t make stupid comparisons about people if you aren’t ready to have them thrown right back in your face.
