Our heads hang in shame when we hear about rapes. Parents ask about daughters but did anyone dare ask their sons. After all, the rapist is someone’s son. As parents, have we asked our sons where he is going? Why not put same yardstick for sons too?

‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

Is it still rape if the man assaulting you doesn't realise it is? Like if the consent issue was never vocalised and he just assumed you were okay with it when actually you didn't want to it but just never resisted?

rapeculturerealities:

Sex without consent is rape.  It is crucial to obtain consent before you have sex with someone and this man did not obtain consent.  ”I think this person is cool with this” doesn’t count as consent.  

There are many cases where people felt that it wasn’t safe to resist verbally or physically, so they did not. This is rape.

There are also cases where people have been unable to give consent because they are unconscious, under the influence of drugs or alcohol or otherwise impaired.  This is also rape.

Lack of consent can be evident in body language as well.  If a person is just laying there, looks hurt or scared, looks distant or is generally passive, it is important to stop and check in with them.

The practice of enthusiastic consent is a good way to make sure that everyone is on board.

No one should ever assume you’re ok with sex.  Without consent, it’s not sex.  It’s rape.

"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)

Guess what? Feminism is beneficial for men. But even if it wasn’t, empowering women shouldn’t be limited or defined by what men think is important.
