Be careful, don’t get raped!

We live in a culture of rape, and it’s truly ridiculous.  We teach our daughters how to avoid being raped, when we should be teaching our sons not to rape people.  Men should be seriously offended that society views their natural state as rapist, after all…  Women and girls are the ones who need to change their behaviour least they provoke some dormant rapist to the surface of that fine gentleman who lives in their dorm.

I would have hit the “reblog” button if there had been one, but there wasn’t.  So here’s a diatribe to read.  Go.  Read.  Follow her links.  Comment.  Share.  And for f#%ks sake, lets change the freakin’ landscape.  Rapist is not the inherent truth of man.

  1. …and after you read the link above? Read this one: http://www.askmoxie.org/2013/03/a-letter-to-my-sons-about-stopping-rape.html One Mom’s letter to her sons.

  2. “Men should be seriously offended that society views their natural state as rapist”

    Really? Because of my gender I am seen as a rapist? Is that society or just you?
    Also, I am curious to know just where I have been taught to rape women in all of my upbringing as a boy? Did I miss that part of growing up? Should I be upset that my dad didnt take me out on the town for a good-ole fashioned raping?
