Say an individual gets drunk at a party and passes out. While they are unconscious, someone robs them. Just takes all their money and credit cards. The robber then brags to all their friends, puts up a YouTube video, and tweets about how funny it was. The cops get involved. The robber gets arrested, and is found guilty. No one is surprised. No one says the individual asked to be robbed because they were drunk. There is no controversy. Justice is served.
HOW COME WHEN I CHANGE THE WORD ROB TO THE WORD RAPE THINGS CHANGE?
Shouldn’t we be more united against a rapist? Shouldn’t we be more outraged? Shouldn’t the punishment be harsher? Did you know the average jail term for robbery is 5 to 25 years? Did you know the average rapist gets less than 10 years?
THIS IS RAPE CULTURE.
