We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.
Amazingly, not The Onion:
“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”
G O O D
Out of the whopping near 40k notes, it doesn’t seem like any of you read either of the articles in question. Also, the above “quote” came from the Salon website’s article, which conveniently twisted all of the information, and then put it on tumblr the number one place where sources ARE NOT procured and facts are rarely checked. If you’d have actually read both articles you’d all know that the boys were expressing concern in the favor of the women. It wasn’t “damn these feminists fuckin up my rape game” it was “woah, I better be careful, women these days are terrified of being potentially assaulted. In the hopes of not looking like a creep, I won’t buy her a drink, and I won’t call her, or even attempt to flirt with her at all, she might be scared”. It was ironically enough that Salon article that was full of falsified information. Totally weird how you would reprimand men for.. well, acting the way you’ve always asked them to act.
