The Big Lie of a "Rape Culture"

by Wendy McElroy

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, and it will be used to promote a big lie -- namely, that we live in a "rape culture."

The term "rape culture" was coined by politically correct (PC) feminists in the 1970s. It refers to attitudes, beliefs, and values that allegedly normalize sexual violence against women and encourage the act of rape by men. America is called a "rape culture" because sexual violence is deemed to be so pervasive that all women live in constant danger from all men. The violence or threat of it occurs on a continuum running from sexual glances to physical rape. The fact that so many people are unaware of the rape culture surrounding them only points to its omnipresence; that is, the rape culture is supposed to be as common as air and taken as much for granted.

7147 Speaking about women who go to Spring Break to have fun, Gavin McInnes said:

“The women there are _human_garbage_ whose parents don’t love them.”

Now, you know he softened that for TV. What he really wanted to say was: "Women who go on spring break are SLUTS! They deserve to be RAPED!"

Don't you find it difficult to support your end of this argument when people say things like that?
