          I identify as a feminist but that is not to say that I agree with the way other feminists choose to express their beliefs. The actions of those people, however, should not represent the movement as a whole. The core of feminism lies in an inclusive, compassionate approach to solving systematic, …

            If rapists get little or no consequences (esp. if they're white), then how do we not have a rape culture?

              Feminists have been taking it too far. So glad you brought up "rape culture" ericguillermoguzman. Under the title rape culture, EVERYTHING is offensive to women and men are so scared of being blamed and accused of anything and everything. Maybe if the approach was more about education rather than …

                Rape culture is just about showing the ways in which society blames victims of sexual assault and normalizes male sexual violence. If you're referring to anything else it's not Rape Culture.

                You seem upset because women are... mad? Angry? Not talking about in the tone you feel comfortable with? I …

                Another aspect of rape culture is this idea of the perfect victim. I've seen it happen all too often where if a victim is able to function normally in society after an assault, then they must've been lying. Because apparently if a woman is able to leave the house instead of just curling up in the …

              Rape culture is about establishing through dominance that men have more power over women, and women have to go through life afraid of men and what they can do.

                In addition, the normalization or rape in terms of prison rape jokes, rape being used for cheap drama in fiction (and all too often the focus of the story is on someone the victim knows, usually a man, than the victim themsevles), people using the term rape as synonyms for winning decisively in a …

              • So then you should arm women and give them the opportunity to become strong enough to defend themselves, right? Even the playing field by empowerment, right?

                Introducing guns into it doesn't help. Stats show that women who own guns are more likely to be killed with their gun than they are to kill someone else.

                Also, saying "you should've had a gun" is itself a form of victim blaming. No, we can't stop all rapes, but we can stop the rapes that too many …

              I do think feminism is not what it used to be for the most part, but that's a good thing IMO. Though sadly TERFs, SWERFs, Carcerals, and White Lady Feminists are still an issue that does need to be constantly pushed back against (I say it that way because I doubt it'll ever go away).

              Clarification …

                So many complaints about feminism are about the tone in which women speak, so it is hard to say anything without it being "wrong."
