Apparently, Bad, and Books: Sierra Marie @cochinita69 My family has gifted me 3 tazers, 4 pepper sprays, 2 pocket knives, and 1 bat over the years to protect me from men that want to hurt me.

No, RAPISTS know what consent is and they don’t care. Exactly. The overwhelming majority of men would never rape anyone. The tiny minority that would know full damn well it’s wrong, they just give a fuck because they’re scum. We don’t live in a rape culture. Some people just don’t care about what is and isn’t culturally acceptable. 31.7% of college men would rape a woman if there were no legal consequences.  31.7% is not a small minority. when some 1/3 of young men state that they would rape a woman if they knew they could get away with it, how is that not a rape culture? “The study was conducted by academics at the University of North Dakota and the North Dakota State University. Its sample size was 86 people.” Stop. 86 people isn’t even a majority of people at my high school. Fuck off. @gender-has-failed-us They’re really trying huh Also apparently a quarter of a person said yes… still trotting out stock “teach men not to rape” discourse in [current year] “86 people isn’t even a majority of people at my high school. Fuck off.” 86 people wasn’t even a majority of people in my year in high school. In 2004. We just gonna gloss over that quarter of a person bit? Yeah the math on that was definitely off, but I was more distracted by the fact the independent had the audacity to publish such a bullshit article based on the biggest joke of a “research survey” I’ve seen in a while. “We got about 25 people in fucking North Dakota to say that they might do a bad thing in a hypothetical universe where no cause and effect existed and this means that a third of male college students would rape a woman” holy shit.
