@spanerbulb Feminism CAN change this though. If we start teaching people from a young age about sexual violence and how wrong it is then maybe we can change the minds of boys. Rape is so excusable in America's rape culture because the men think that they have an innate right to control women. This is the kind of stuff that feminism seeks to erase, the idea that one sex is allowed to control and demean the other. If children are raised in a more neutral environment(rather than the "two cultures" model, meaning boys are raised to be competitive and girls are raised to be cooperative), then maybe there can be a chance to even the gender disparity and hopefully less rapes would be committed. Though I think a lot of it also has to do with the glorification of partying so hard that you don`t know what`s going on, and the glorification of underage drinking and drug use
i love your ideals i do, and i think you are right. however, having walked a strange drunk (crying)girl home once only to get into an argument with her boyfriend becuase he thought i was trying to take advantage of her (i can't stand sex with drunk girls, uggh) did kinda fix me of that gentlemanish behaviour.
