"I have a question. When you guys were in kindergarten or elementary school, was there that one kid in your class that always screwed everything up for everyone? I mean, you have the privilege to eat pudding at snack time and then this one kid decides to go and dump his pudding cup on the teacher’s shoes, thereby getting pudding privileges taken away forever. That kid was always an asshole, right? Sure, not all of the kids in your class were little shits. It was just that one little asshole who couldn’t keep his pudding in his cup. The one little asshole that fucked up everything for everybody else and now nobody in the class could have pudding anymore.
Now imagine this: the kid drops his pudding cup on his teacher’s shoes on purpose. When she writes a conduct report about the kid, the principal laughs in her face and tells her that maybe she shouldn’t have worn such ugly shoes. When she tells the kids that no one can have pudding anymore-in case someone else decides to drop theirs on her shoes- the kids laugh and say “not all kids do that”. When she goes to the store to buy new shoes, the sales clerk looks at her dirty, pudding stained shoes in disgust. Her friends tease her about the shoe incident for years.
This is rape culture. The only thing about this is that I shouldn’t have to wrap it up in a metaphor for you. Rape culture isn’t wrapped in a pretty package. It’s a nasty, brutal reality.
So imagine this: A man rapes a woman on purpose (because you really can’t rape anyone on accident). When she goes to the police, they laugh in her face and tell her she shouldn’t have worn such slutty clothes. When she tells men that she doesn’t really ever date or hook-up because she was raped, the men laugh and say “not all men do that”. When she goes out in public to buy new clothes, people look at her and whisper behind their hands about how she still purchases such revealing clothes. Everywhere she goes, she hears rape jokes being made, and they make her want to throw up.
You shouldn’t need a metaphor to understand how fucked up rape culture really is."
