"Rape Culture is an environment in which rape is prevalent and in which sexual violence against women is normalized and excused in the media and popular culture. "
well as an example the best selling book of all time besting the final entry in the harry potter series was 50 shades of grey in 2012 and that may probably still be the case
a book widely criticised for promoting sexual abuse and violence
arguably some of the most popular musical artists like eminem, 50 cent, etc are known for lyrics that promote violence against women
"You and your husband have a fight
One of you tries to grab a knife
And during the struggle he accidentally gets his Adams apple sliced
And while this is goin' on
His son just woke up and he just walks in
She panics and he gets his throat cut
(Oh my God!)
So now they both dead and you slash your own throat
So now it's double homicide and suicide with no note
I should have known better when you started to act weird
We could've, hey! where you going? get back here!
You can't run from me Kim
It's just us, nobody else!
You're only making this harder on yourself
Ha! ha! got you!
Ha! go ahead yell!
Here I'll scream with you!
Ah somebody help!
Don't you get it bitch, no one can hear you?
Now shut the fuck up and get what's comin' to you
You were supposed to love me
Now bleed! bitch bleed!
Bleed! bitch bleed! bleed!
So long, bitch you did me so wrong
I don't want to go on
Living in this world without you"
the porn industry and the modelling industry have been widely criticised for objectifying women
and i could go and on and on... where have you been living? under a rock?
" Oh instead you cite a study which actually establishes the exact opposite of this. "
But, when the researchers actually used the word “rape” in their question, those numbers dropped much lower — suggesting that many college men don’t associate the act of forcing a woman to have sex with them with the crime of committing rape."
the point being that the men did not consider coercing a woman to have sex to be a crime/rape... how did you not understand that?
"Objectivity would lead to the rather abundantly obvious conclusion that rape culture doesn't exist in the west champ."
well based on objective standards such as the types of media we consume that is debatable as i have demonstrated
"Did you learn the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic yet? Obviously not if you're still clinging to a rather asinine perspective about technology, Luddite."
have you been able to think of a form of technology that does not produce waste? i'm still waiting on you... its been a few months now and counting
I should not be surprised at the impotence of your sophistry and yet I am.
You demonstrate a fundamental misapprehension about what it means for something to be normalized as well as when causality is involved. Your examples that were an effort to produce support for your ideas instead promote your abject obliviousness to the topic and only further advances my point. A book depicting unsavory actions is no more causally linked to sexual exploitation as grand theft auto is to...well, grand theft auto. It's a resoundingly debunked idea and you would do well to take note.
As to study, again you fail miserably at understanding the point. (Ignoratio elenchi fallacy)
Were rape normalized as is your claim, then the language would make no impact. Because it did have an impact, we can safely state that is it not the case that rape is normalized.
Will you learn this time or continue defending an absurdity? Judging from our last encounter I expect more red herrings and perhaps another statement about technology.
As to technologies which do not produce waste, you've apparently never heard of green technologies which is quite frankly shocking. Do you go outside ever?
Anyway, the argument was never about technology and waste. It was specifically about your claim that waste is intrinsic to technology, which is fundamentally incorrect as any waste would be a byproduct and thus extrinsic. So again I see you fail to grasp knowledge most children comprehend.
