Forums - Politics Discussion - Can the Rape Culture in the West be Reduced with Guns?

What a dumb question, we don't live in a rape culture... what a poorly thought out question and a stupid and unwarranted accusation.

All of the western world condemns rape, it's a serious crime that basically imprisons a person all their life, even then they'll be outcasts from society, shunned and treated as trash.

In no part of the world does ANYBODY sympathise with a rapist, it is not normalised or excused in any part of the world, especially western culture.

And guns don't solve anything, they only increase the chances of crime, homicides and mass shootings, it's counter productive and quite backward thinking. Violence does NOT solve violence.

Please stop with “rape culture”. That isn’t a thing in the west. Stop.

Rape culture is something in India. Not in the West. People who complain about things like this in the West clearly have no idea what's happening in the rest of the world.

Like people complaining that Europe is racist and sexist... I've lived in Japan for a year now, and I can assure you that European people have now idea what a racist and sexist society can be (and I'm sure other countries are worse that Japan).

 

EDIT: And guns to solve rapes? You mean that you want rapists to kill their victims when they're done, to get murder cases instead of rape cases? That's a nice way to reduce rapes...

Because it's worse in other places doesn't mean that there aren't issues here. I don't understand why people would just want to ignore the problems here instead of tackling them merely because it is more severe elsewhere.

I'm not complaining about people saying there are issues, I'm complaining about the words used. 

 

There is a difference between saying "There are rapes in the West" and "There is a rape culture in the West". Rapes are not part of the culture, in Europe anyway. It's something rather rare and serious, never accepted as normal. It's like saying "We have a murder culture" or "a pedophilia culture". Having crimes in a society doesn't mean that it's part of the culture.

 

EDIT: And it's the same thing for racism and sexism. Obviously there are racist and sexist people in France, but it's not actually an accepted and official part of the society like other countries. So people saying that French society is racist and sexist are wrong: exceptions, even loud and easily seen in the media, are not the norm.

Didn't realize that India is the west now. Let me be the first to welcome them with open arms and a gun in my pocket.

 

That said, guns have never solved any social issues. In fact, guns tend to create a lot more problems than the ones they pretend to fix.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I didn't really think there was a rape culture in the US. But I'm up for learning more on the subject.

Edit: Or the west in general

Guns won't stop the problem, senzu beans could though.



Rape culture, victim culture, drug culture. health culture, fat culture, cat culture. Goodness, we live in so many cultures all at the same time. I hope people keep adding more in order to make problems look grandiose and all-encompassing.

That's what rape culture actually looks like. Rape is a crime here that gets punished. Not a sentence used to rape another. Massive difference. India, Pakistan...... Aren't Western countries.
