This Is Rape Culture

[Content Note: Rape culture; sexual assault; coercion.]

The next time some joker tries to tell you the rape culture doesn't exist, just point them in the direction of this email penned by Phi Kappa Tau's social chair of the Georgia Tech chapter, which he fired out to all his frat bros under the subject line: "Luring Your Rapebait."

"NO RAPING," he admonishes them, in the middle of his "Luring Your Rapebait" instructions on how to ply women with alcohol, manipulate them into physical contact, and sexually assault them.

Rape is not a "misunderstanding." There are not men who "accidentally" rape women. Rape is not a "mistake."

This is rape culture.
