Agreed. I have a problem with this as well. Men are not opressive assholes. Opressive assholes are opressive assholes.

The problem with rape culture, if you see the study I linked which disproved alcohol causing the behavior, is that there were documented instances of by standers encouraging sexual aggression towards intoxicated women. As if it were funny. THAT is the problem. They weren’t doing it themselves. But they were promoting it. They were enjoying the show and giving the oppressive asshole the message he was doing something right.

Luckily there were more instances of by standers coming to help the victim, but still if it happened once, it happened too often. Also the staff intervened way too little.

Writer of fiction, blogs and erotica. Frequency in that order. Popularity in reverse.
