Rape culture has also changed the meaning of “no”, which in this society can mean “maybe” or “try harder” leaving both people wondering whether consent was actually given. The miscommunications and the ideals that are being taught about rape have led to the many problems that are caused in rape culture today. Heben Nigatu, Jessica Testa, and Ryan Broderick did a good job with their argument based on the pathos, however could have given better logos than what was used in this article. The BuzzFeed staff did a nice job appealing to angry emotions to relate their audience. They did this with their explainer from Shakesville who enlightens readers that rape culture is when women have to change their habits to protect themselves from rape because it is a woman’s fault if she in fact is assaulted.

First is the idea of merit, that bad things happen to bad people (1, 1985). The main example for this is sexual assault of a woman wearing a provocative outfit. This notion is full of oughts. Women ought not to wear provocative outfits, because, as we know from porn, a provocative outfit is a communication to men about openness to sex. The raped woman’s gender performance was wrong, it sent the wrong signals.
Rape and sexual assault does not only occur in the ancient times of The Scarlet Letter but is extremely prevalent in today’s society and is normalized through the depiction of rape culture presented in the media. In today’s society, it is imperative to address the rape culture that is being cultivated by the objectification of women, normalization of violence against them, and the recurring victimization of the victim because it leaves men confused in their relationships with women and women feeling disempowered and violated. One of the initial causes of rape culture is the way in which women are being objectified by men and the media as it creates a society that disregards women’s rights and safety. From a very young age, men are encouraged to believe that all women are property because of the media. In magazine advertisements, it has been tested that sexual objectification occurs more frequently for women than for men and that women are 3 times more likely to be dressed in a sexually provocative manner.
More information and resources need to be widely available not only to those who were raped as males but everyone. Without it many will suffer in silence, bottling up what happened to them, turn to substance abuse to cope with mental health disorders. All of this may lead to the feeling of being trapped, hopeless, or alone. Leading them to an even worse state of mental health, which they may try to escape by suicidal thoughts or actions. Males suicide rates have been extremely high, in 2009, in Canada alone there were 2989 reported cases of male suicide.
We’d never even gone out on a date” (Imbarus 105). It is horrible to think that even someone that she knew was capable of attempting something as heinous as rape. Aura witnessed a terrifying ordeal and was left with no viable option other than to fight back. In most cases, that is what the culprit least expects but it involves a great deal of risk, because usually that rapist can easily overpower the woman with brute strength
The Sheriff who talked to Brandon had absolutely no compassion for him and what he went through. “Society 's posture on rape, and the manifestation of that posture in the courts, help account for the fact that so few rapes are reported” (Anonymous 247). This quote from The Rape of Mr. Smith relates to this scene because Brandon went through a terrible thing, that no person should have to go through, and he was interrogated about it and shown no compassion. “The law discriminates against rape victims in a manner which would not be tolerated by victims of any other crime” (Anonymous 246). This quote also
Sympathizing with victims, researching the degree of rape in one’s community, the shame that a person may feel, working with individuals who may not know who they are yet, past trauma a person experienced which led them to where they are now, are only a few of the goals I would work and continue to work on as my repertoire would grow. I feel sexuality is a sensitive subject for most and I want to help shed light and educate those around me. Too many individuals are underrepresented, and this often leads to depression, eating disorders, seclusion, and often the object of ridicule amongst other things in a person’s life. It is imperative there is an open discussion as well as
She later remarked that many people were unaware of what the object was and referenced it as a bloody penis. Chicago expressed this ignorance as a testament to the damage done in our perceptual powers by the absence of female reality. Chicago proposed that “maybe the existing forms of art for ideas of men have had are inadequate for the ideas of women (wm).” She was promoting an art of difference. Many women also adopted vaginal iconography to reveal and celebrate the biological source of women’s difference (wm). “Red Flag” emerged from her conversation with four other women about menstruation and how it is a taboo issue that was never discussed in art or literature.
Turchik’s article Myths About Male Rape: A Literature Review explores the ways in which mainstream media has satirized male rape and inadvertently created several myths concerning the topic that are widely regarded to be true today. The article further examines how the media promotes heavily stereotyped views of male rape with male rape exclusive to certain people and occurring only in certain areas. Further discussed is the idea that male rape is often depicted as a humorous topic in mainstream media which further promotes male rape ideologies and encouraging the belief that male rape is a humorous topic and something that can and should be taken lightly. Furthermore, Turchik discusses how awareness towards male rape in the media has increased, however, coverage largely portrays stereotypical views of male rape, male rape as consensual rather than forceful, male rape as an exclusive issue towards homosexuals and alleged male victims as liars. The hypothesis as well as the findings provide a solid foundation to my literature review as they provide proof that the acceptance of male rape myths is a very common trend among the general public, media and law
Chapter eight of my book talks about Sexual Assault. Rap, sexual abuse and assault happens more than we think and not just among women, however, men as well. The odds are that the person who abuses you is likely someone that you know. Many sexual abuse cases involving children is unreported as a result of being scared, ashamed, guilt or threatened, same goes for being raped or attempted rapes. There are several myths about rap in the manner that women provoke or wanted to be raped, cry rap to take revenge, women wanted it since they did not resist and many more.
Rape is a really big issue in prison and in a way some might see sex as a need. If someone sees this as a need the way they would get this is by sexually assaulting someone. They have needs like any other human and those would be food,shelter and clothing. This are provided by the prisons and if they are not the inmate has to prove these needs were not provided. Mikayla’s experience really depends on which security level she is put in.
The rape myths that R. v. Ewanchuk includes within its case is heavily linked to the social construction of males and females involved in sexual assault cases. The outcome of this case largely impacted the feminist movement in a strong way. This case changed the future of sexual assault cases within many ways. To begin with, consent must be determined from the complainants/victims mind opposed to his or her actions. Secondly, there are many forms of physical actions along with verbal ways of issuing to refuse consent.
The article explains how sexual assault continues to be a problem until this very day. When someone is sexually assaulted, it is very hard for them to cope with the fact that someone has touched them in the wrong way. For the ones who commits the assault, it will only become worse for them. A National Study says, “The main source of inmates’ knowledge of prison sex appears to come from their conversations with other inmates”(Response to the Prison Rape Elimination Act). Some inmates could portray the role of acting as if they are there for the victim to talk to, but there are other things that could result from this.
