The Truth About “Rape Culture”

We’ve been getting our noses rubbed in rape lately.
The news about Bill Cosby was shocking. I grew up with this guy. He was the one comedian that my parents said was okay for me to listen to when I was a kid…
On the other hand, I don’t think anyone was all that surprised at all about Donald Trump or Harvey Weinstein…
And now the dominoes are falling every day.
It’s led me to ask a very disturbing question: Is rape just a normal part of being human?
Why is all of this rape and sexual assault so common suddenly?
Is there something just fucking broken in our society? In our species??
And is there anything we can do about it?

- Rape is biologically wired into us. Pretending that it’s not only makes it harder to intelligently and compassionately teach our young men to control and maturely govern their socially inappropriate desires.
- If we continue to shame men for natural sexual desires, as if desire were in any way equivalent to sexual assault… we’ll continue to feed the pockets of immature men who glorify objectifying and even harming women, and enable perpetrators.
- And if we continue to shame women for their natural desires and their natural fears, then we will continue to feed the epidemic of silence that surrounds and enables perpetrators.
