Food for Thought – Day #11 of Red My Lips

What do you think about when you hear about Rape Culture? Do you think about women who were raped? Do you think this is just a phrase women made up to blame everything on men? What is Rape Culture?

We are all touched by rape culture whether we like it or not. We are touched by it in movies, on tv, on the street.

Rape culture is “a society or environment whose prevailing social attitudes have the effect of normalizing or trivializing sexual assault and abuse.”

Rape culture is the man or women who makes you uncomfortable as they ogle you on the street (and feel they have the privilege to do it).

Rape culture is a pop song that discusses persuading someone to say “yes” even though they strongly say “no”.

Rape culture is basing a validation of rape based on what was (s)he wearing.

Rape culture is the statement,”(S)he deserved it.”

We all experience rape culture every day. As previously posted, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It is not too late to throw on your favorite red lipstick (or get a favorite red!)and take a stand against Rape Culture by helping Redmylips.org spread awareness.

10 Percent of my red lipstick sales will be donated to RedMyLips.org. Email me at notonyourcollar gmail.com to find out what red Lipsense colors I have in stock.
