I’ve been swamped this week, Vagina News friends, but wanted to share this article.
It’s long, and problematic in lots of ways, but it does a good job of a few things:
- Explaining what rape culture is, and that yes, it exists
- Providing several examples of ongoing protectionism and victim-blaming in Steubenville
- Illustrating the complicated nature of misogyny and rape culture, in which there are rarely clear ‘good guys’ and ‘bad guys’
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
