MARC's Stance on "Rape Culture"

"Rape culture" is a term used to denote a culture in which rape and other sexual violence is common and in which prevalent attitudes, norms, practices, and media condone, normalize, excuse, or encourage rape or other violence against women. Within the paradigm, such a thing as "trivial" or "harmless" sexism does not exist; for instance, telling a sexist joke is interpreted as fostering a misogynistic disrespect for women and an accompanying disregard for their well-being, which can ultimately make rape seem acceptable.

We seek to expand this definition in an effort to capture the intersections of multiple identities and experiences.

I would suggest that be cautious about who you talk with about this new world view.

Unsuspecting normal people attending the next NASCAR competition just might attempt to rearrange the nose of your face.

But hey, this is America. If you have enough cash to pay the rent and feed your face...go for it.

I didn't think people would pay a buck for a little bottle of water. Who Knew!

Gosh, can you imagine all of those good ole boys agreeing that they need to change the way that make conversation among each other each Saturday morning at the market?

Good luck.
