Rape Culture 101: Victim-Blaming and Slut-Shaming (Part 2)

(Editor's Note: trigger warning for this series - rape and violence)

Victim-blaming and slut-shaming are two of the biggest aspects of rape culture, in my estimation, though victim-blaming holds more weight against victims if they are women rather than men. “Why would anyone blame a victim for being raped?” you might ask.

“Rape culture.” These two words aren’t often thought of as going well together. Most people (sadly, not all) know that rape is a crime, and most associate culture with intellectual and creative pursuits. Putting these two words together completely negates the positive connotation of culture; when you strip that away, what do you have? I will start by defining both “rape” and ‘”culture”; as “culture” has a huge number of definitions depending on whom you ask and which dictionary you use, I will use two dictionary definitions that apply directly to this discussion.
