Re: “The rape chant: background and updates

I still can't believe there aren't almost criminal chsrges for such words. You're not uttering threats though perhaps one's general intentions. Though women chanted too which really baffles me.

Though to talk about the criminal code, there are also charges for wearing too little, coming from the general sensibilities of us in society (yes, the evil majority, i know). But, in a society that takes everything to extremes, does some clothing, or lack of, constitute some violation of what a reasonable person thinks is right to wear in public? Just asking. Sex is ok, for sure, but almost no one agrees it should be performed on a public street.

It may like the Supreme Court ruling that women can go topless as men always do. Yet, I hsve only seen it done once in the decade or so since the ruling. Just a thought.

And, I think the rape culture is not the fault of the boys, it's the fault of the men, who help teach it to new generations. In media, attitudes, and learned dialog as boys grow up. One chant does not make a culture. It is a symptom of a larger systemic and societal problem.

As I always say, environment (society) our greatest campus. From a very young age.
