RINJ says Rape culture is telling girls and women to be careful about what they wear…

  • how you wear it,
  • how you carry yourself,
  • where you walk,
  • when you walk there,
  • with whom you walk,
  • whom you trust,
  • what you do,
  • where you do it,
  • with whom you do it,
  • what you drink,
  • how much you drink,
  • whether you make eye contact,
  • if you’re alone,
  • if you’re with a stranger,
  • if you’re in a group,
  • if you’re in a group of strangers,
  • if it’s dark,
  • if the area is unfamiliar, if you’re carrying something,
  • how you carry it,
  • what kind of shoes you’re wearing in case you have to run,
  • what kind of purse you carry,
  • what jewelry you wear,
  • what time it is,
  • what street it is,
  • what environment it is,
  • how many people you sleep with,
  • what kind of people you sleep with,
  • who your friends are,
  • to whom you give your number,
  • who’s around when the delivery guy comes,
  • to get an apartment where you can see who’s at the door before they can see you,
  • to check before you open the door to the delivery guy,
  • to own a dog or a dog-sound-making machine,
  • to get a roommate,
  • to take self-defense,
  • to always be alert, always pay attention, always watch your back, always be aware of your surroundings, and
  • never let your guard down for a moment lest you be sexually assaulted and if you are and didn’t follow all the rules it’s your fault. 😦

    Rape Culture! Ick!
