A PSA that targets rapists rather than victims.

Don't rape. That's all there is to it. Just don't. A simple message.

6. Sometimes a subject is so absurd that the only way to present it is in its own absurdity.

There are millions of men in the United States who have committed rape. There are millions more who have used some form of coercion against a potential sexual partner. These are absurd numbers.

7. It's meant as a counter point to the PSAs directed at victims

their drinking, going out at night, etc. Rather than blaming the victim, it says don't rape. It's not really informative, but the message that rapists rather than victims are responsible is a good one.

But I think that rhetorical question ignores the fact that I wrote an OP about why I felt the false PSA was insulting, so the question did not really need to be asked. It was actually a statement (let's be honest) by BB that says "People who object to it must be rapists." Let's be honest.

32. The point of the ad is clearing up the concept of date rape for college students

A lot of men going into college have been taught by pop culture that drunk hookups and predatory behavior at parties are acceptable and just a part of college life.

The people who object to that message--calling rape what it is--are either people with a persecution complex or potential rapists who see their frat boy lifestyle under attack.

34. Rape is not done by accident.

A rapist is NOT going to take such a light-hearted "PSA" seriously, nor do I think the video is intended to have that effect.

I think BB got it right when she admitted that it is a critique of actual PSAs that warn women to not be vulnerable to rapists.

And I am actually a bit shocked that there are feminists that work AGAINST messages that seek to protect women.

It is ironic that one of the critiques of the rape PSAs that tell women to take care to lock doors, not walk at night alone, etc. is that they are obvious and condescending because they tell women what they already know. The obvious irony is that here we have a fake PSA that tells men "Don't rape" --and the ones that won't already won't and the ones that will, will anyway.

37. again. i disagree. here are my reasons i think this ad is effective. and this is just off top of

my head. bet with thought, i could come up with more.

too many of the boys raping dont define what they do as rape. they do it for the boys.

so it is important our boys tell their peers... dont rape. in a culture today that gets a thumb up in rape. i think we need to educate our boys. i have a couple. i certainly did. also, girls need to hear this from the boys. and finally, it will give further resolve for the boys that recognize rape to stand up to peers. for a couple different reasons, with a video of boys saying... dont rape reinforcing our boys to speak up and out.

win win win. in my opinion.

And I think that the over-simplicity of this "PSA" does NOTHING to help.

There are many ways that important point could be driven home. This is not one of them.

If it is going to work I think it needs to say something like "if and you have sex with her, you raped her - don't rape her." Too many people find ways to dismiss what they do as being rape. An effective PSA needs to say "THIS is rape - if you do it, you are a rapists - don't rape"

38. When men don't know that alcohol impairs a woman's ability to consent.

They may not know it's rape because pop culture has taught them it's acceptable. That's the sinister part of rape culture--finding ways to make it acceptable.

The anger against articles about women protecting themselves is that it puts all the onus on the women to keep from getting raped--it's concern trolling that does absolutely nothing to stop men from raping. In fact, it further reinforces the idea that men are just going to rape and gives people more reason to blame the victim, this time for failing to protect herself.

46. it is not a fake psa. it is addressing a lot in one short ad. it is addressing the one telling

girls how to avoid rape, but iti s also putting rape squarely where it belongs. on the rapist. and no, not all rapists are sick sick people, unfortunately. we want to see them that way because it comforts us. but a lot of rapists are regular ole joes conditioned in a rape culture that makes it hard for these boys to even know what they are doing is rape, though they know. but excuses are made ect.... there are so many many social angles why boys rape that could be easily addressed. this is merely one. we need a lot more

boys listen to their peers. not us. so it is important we hear from boys and men. and it is happening mroe and more. a lot more men are standing up and talking about the issue of porn, and what porn does to a mans brain. all good stuff. men talking to men. edcuating each other.

just as we women do with each other.

A man who does do so in front of other men is probably first gauging how hie "friend" will receive it.

IOW, they say it only in front of men with similar proclivities.

As a result, I have never encountered men saying the kind of stuff you are talking about.

51. i think that is pretty accurate. that is what i notice. that if men speak out, almost always

that man will back down. he is not doing it for any other reason but to look good in his friends eyes.

that is why it is so important that men do what you do.

my husband says the same. he says, no one around him talks this shit. but it is cause all the people he hangs with would not allow.

that is why these psa with men talking are so so so important. it does a 100 times more good when a man talks... (and ya, there is a conditioned sexism out there and pisses me off, but reality)... than if women were to go on and on about it.

that is the importance of mans voice.

50. Well, the thing about rape culture is that isn't sinister on its face.

The act of rape itself is just the end result or rape culture. Anything that feeds into the devaluing of women or reinforcing gender roles is part of rape culture. It's not just shady men waiting in a dark alley, it's a hack comedian's sexist joke. It's not just some guy at a party with roofies, it's the guy trolling the Internet and calling women ugly because they don't appeal to him.

It basically reinforces the ideas that: 1) Women exist for men's pleasure, 2) Men are required as men to get laid at every opportunity, and 3) Anyone who deviates from those two is a prude, a bitch, effeminate, gay, a slut, a manhater, a mangina, a cockblocker, a whore, or a loser.

Rape culture affects men just as much as women, and it creates a sense of entitlement among men (primarily, because that's how the gender roles are culturally defined) that they can take what they want when they want, and women are obliged to give it to them. The end product is women being raped as a man's conquest and men being raped by other men as punishment for not being a real man.

66. Steve, do you think it's possible that this sort of thing could make it easier for peers

to intervene by saying something? I actually do think this was the intent. The repetition makes it easier to use those words. Also easier to connect and feel confident saying, for instance.. No, just because she's passed out in your bed, it doesn't mean she "wants it" or it's not rape. I think we don't realize how much teens and young adults need to hear this. Some parents, who defend this crap, and blame the girls, need to hear it too.

68. thanks, I thought it was a bit narrow and literal to take this as a PSA for rapists only

but was wondering if it was just me. I think it's a great message.

63. K&R. The irony of some of the responses where guys are getting

freaked out over something like this is that they're probably same kind of guys whining about how society is "too PC" these days, and that everyone needs to "start growing a thicker skin"!

86. Yeah

It is ironic. Ultimately it's about maintaining privilege. They call certain ideas and practices PC because it challenges their treatment of women and people of color. Then they call simple rape prevention ads "misandry" because it suggests rape isn't exclusively the fault of women. What they really hate is any criticism or challenge of their privilege. Some even wine that men don't have near exclusive province over the labor market anymore.

64. I'm sometimes surprised by what is found to be controversial here

People saying "don't rape" is controversial? Huh?

76. Interesting. So accusations that this ad is some sort of condemnation of all men

As made in the group where this PSA first appeared, are clearly false. The ad was made by men who actually like women and are concerned for their safety. Thanks so much for letting everyone know who produced the ad.

As a graduate of FSU I was curious. I'm proud that men at FSU are involved with this cause.
