Today in Rape Culture

[Trigger warning.]

Rape culture is prioritizing the protection of footage of two daughters being sexually assaulted by their father over their desire to have the footage returned to them or destroyed, because that father was an artist and his sexually assaulting them on film is thus "art."

Rape culture is also describing that artist's sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl as an "affair."
