Not Everything Is Rape Culture

In which a woman tries to argue that her friends in college giving her strong drinks is rape culture.

Unless her theater major friends were trying to fuck her that is pure bullshit.

It's drunk culture. By calling it rape culture the writer is contributing to minimizing the impact of the word "rape."

And I'm so fucking tired of people using the word "rape" in a context that it doesn't belong in - because the more you take away the impact of the word rape, the more acceptable rape becomes.

This is why we don't say "I totally got raped by that exam" - because the word "rape" needs to keep its power.

If a friend gives you a strong drink when you ask for a light drink, that's not rape. That's someone being an inconsiderate asshole.
