An Observation

[Content Note: Rape culture.]

I have gotten into countless public debates with men, some of them famous and/or influential men, about rape apologia, rape culture, and rape jokes. In all cases, these men were engaging in denialism about the effects and/or even basic existence of these things.

Every time, I ask them the same thing: Why are you so invested in defending the rape culture?

And every time, they offer no reply.
