Its clearly the women's fault for dressing like that men are completely dominated by sexual urges and they know that so clearly they're all just asking for it.

(ugh I feel gross even joking about it)

These conversations usually devolve into:

~things guys say to imply they're not rapists without directly saying they're not rapists
~kitchensink feminists saying all men are rapists
~reactionary men saying all women are pigs/people trying to be funny implying all women/everyone is a pig
~the well-meaning person trying to argue both sides
~the outraged because people aren't taking this as seriously as said outraged do
~bad jokes in general
~my personal disdain

Then there's the inevitable objectification of women conversation, followed by condescending references to the original OP, in this case the crass and boorish hyperbole of a frat boy, which is universally something to not take seriously. Which someone will then fake-rage a response basically saying rape is always serious, because at some point they decided there was an implication that rape could be not-serious or something. Unfortunately, if you don't respond seriously to rape discourse, someone will get offended and report you to a goblin, or the whole cycle starts again.

Hi guys! It's encouraging that people in this thread are discussing rape culture, and how best to challenge that culture in society. Just a reminder that posts which denigrate or insult people based on their gender are against the Code of Conduct, and may be removed. Although we encourage everyone to share their opinion on this subject, posts which target women specifically in a way that could be interpreted as threatening or condoning violence against women are unacceptable.

Damn. I missed the "it was the woman's fault" chauvinism/faux-masculinity. You win by default, but you gotta admit, that's an equally tired trope.

Do we really have to tolerate victim-blaming rape survivors?

Just a quick question, is there a link to the actual email in question? CNN's link leads to a video of theirs that I can't access from where I am right now and I don't feel like typing "rapebait" into my Google search window here at work.

Thanks, that was an interesting read. I find it humorous how the phrase "ALWAYS START WITH THE MAKING OUT!!!! NO RAPING." was plastered on at the end of the long instructions on how to get a girl drunk and vulnerable.

I appreciate your concern, and believe me, I am sympathetic. Hoever, the CoC only explicitly prohibits sexist slurs and insults, not sexism generally (partly because that's a very large topic and encompasses a very broad range of behaviours". We will be monitoring this thread closely for posts which cross the line into sexist slurs or condoning or supporting violence against women will be removed.

I'm very sorry to hear that. :(
