3. noooooo, lol. do you know how many men use their "hi-testosterone" as an excuse?

that goes right along with dna/biology makes them rape.

nah... it is not about their testosterone. it is about entitlement and the fine job we are doing in our culture today creating women solely for the purpose of use by men.

you know i luv ya, right?

4. oh yeah, that "boys will be boys" excuse. But what I meant is

CULTURE that uses---MARKETS, actually---that exact pile of crap. Low brow entertainment: Real men and their violent hi-testosterone. They just are built that way, to love blowing up things and grabbing their crotches when a woman walks by.

Love you too, sea !!

2. nobody else is saying anything? ya, we are. "Because a White Guy Said It"

http://persephonemagazine.com/2011/05/18/because-a-white-guy-said-it/

his first, i fell in love with the man. i love this video also. women have been talking about this a long time. but, we are all trippin over this man for speaking out.

i appreciate him speaking out. so so so much. i take nothing from him speaking out.

but, i want to be clear. yes. many women have been speaking out and told we are full of it.

but, a white guy said it, so maybe he will be heard, better than us women.

thanks guy.

from my heart.

6. you're right! exactly! womens' voices and actions are silenced. STILL.

If a male teacher or principal shielded children with his body, Hollywood would have movie rights on it by now.

Just one of a zillion examples.

8. Great vid

I think more general way of wording rape culture is a culture of predacity. It permeates everything bad that people do to each other and provides excuses for doing it. The focus of this discussion may be rape, but to me it all has roots in culture of predacity, of which rape is a form of.

"Who cares about the people I hurt to get what I want. If they weren't strong enough to avoid becoming my victim, then they deserved it." <-- Too many people think these thoughts all too often, including people we work with, our friends, our family members and our sites posters. Of course, nobody wants to actually say it out loud. To admit to being a predator. Instead, they try to deflect and blame the victims with all sorts of mental gymnastics and fallacious logic.

We need to make it understood that these attitudes can not be tolerated, even if that means being tough on our loved ones.
