This is illegal since the majority of these cases are against the prostitutes’ own will.

Kirsten Amato Jamie Poole EH 102-121 October 8, 2014 Word Count: 798 Summarizing and Analyzing “What is Rape Culture” By BuzzFeed About two-thirds of rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. In “What is Rape Culture” by Heben Nigatu, Jessica Testa, and Ryan Broderick of the BuzzFeed staff, they dispute the major problems with what rape culture has become. Rape culture is an idealist social norm that desensitizes sexual violence. When most people think of sexual violence they think of women being assaulted, but rape culture involves men being assaulted too. 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.
Rap lyrics today is very degrading, the lyrics encourages a disrespectful response to our young women and sway our young men into domestic abuse, alcohol abuse and drug use. Most people, older men and women are totally against the derogatory language used in these lyrics. Armstrong (2001) conducted a content analysis of 490 rap songs from 1987 to 1993, in which 22% contained lyrics featuring violence against women including assault, rape and murder. His study classified rap songs into different categories in which rappers either pride themselves on sex acts appearing to harm women, justify other acts of violence, warn women who challenge male domination that they will be assaulted, and/or seem to invite male violence against women (Armstrong, 2001). Weitzer and Kubrin (2009) conducted a follow-up study analyzing the portrayal of women in 403 rap songs through a content analysis, in which themes of derogatory naming and shaming of women; sexual objectification of women; distrust of women; legitimation of violence against women; and celebration of prostitution and pimping appeared at the greatest frequency.
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.
“The Cosby show” by Ta Nehsi Coates. The reason for choosing this topic instead of all the other options is due to the fact on how people put people on high pedestal’s people who are famous celebrity’s that have accomplished so much and well known by many as their role models . In this specific article bill Cosby is accused for being a rapist not to only one female but to 30 in total. He is accused of drugging and then raping all of these girls.

In an age of double standards, people try to pick out everything and anything that can be offending. The offense in this particular situation is misogyny. In plenty of Washington Irving’s books, the message portrayed about women is usually negative. The main women are usually abusive, hateful, as well as uncooperative. Though plenty of people in today’s society view Irving as a misogynist, I do not.
Few care to find out a victim's story because society believes she's been around or maybe she wasn't so innocent after all or it was her boyfriend/husband or look at what she was wearing or she's just another wild college student. Before we know it there's such a thing as rape culture. We as a member of society are a part of it as adults caught up in a cycle that only seems to get worse. Sexual assault starts with a few rumors or unwanted look then there's the sexual harassment or being groped next you're being followed into an alley where it all goes dark. The CNN video is a clear example of why sexual harassment on the street isn't taken seriously because the men who are objectifying women see it as a simple compliment portrayed by Steve

In terms of the negative stigma erotic dancing has on women, Barton starts us off with a question, “What kind of women dance naked for money?”. She goes on to explain that “Most people, informed only by cultural stereotypes, imagine much and know little about the lives of dancers…. Seductive and manipulative, she will steal your boyfriend or husband because she does not care about anyone but herself (Barton, 585). Ross also states that “Female burlesque, go-go, and striptease have been perceived by religious, civic, and moral reformers as commercialized sexual vice that inflames men’s passions...propel them to seek adulterous liaisons, abandon their families, and jeopardize their workplace productivity” (Ross, 150). I must say that I agree
Feminists believe that these arguments are absurd and that rape is considered one of the most extremes ways of showing male domination. The previous issues raised can be related to the movie because as we all know, Paulina was raped and tortured, however, the government was not planning on arresting the people who did those crimes. It’s clear that the situation was not considered a big deal and and that’s why they aren’t pursuing it and are instead hiding the incident. Rape is not something easily brushed off as we can see by Paulina’s reaction to when she recognizes the friendly doctor as the one who raped her. In one of the first
