I've been reading so many downright disgusting comments about women and rape now that it has once again made international headlines (India, Ohio, etc. etc.)
I wrote up a blog expressing some thoughts, but here was a key point that I wanted to discuss-
People, so many people- are jumping at the bit, justifying rape at the expense of the victim.
She didn’t say no soon enough. She was a tease. She dressed a certain way. She hung out in the wrong venue. She put herself in a bad position (drinking, drugs).
Here’s the thing I’m hearing here:
Women are walking around, available to screw any time a guy wants to. UNLESS she says no."
Do you agree with that conclusion? That some people seem to think that sex is okay-expected- unless they object (soon enough), vs. sex isn't expected, deserved, etc UNLESS she consents? What do you feel is causing statements like the above examples to be made?
