Rape and rape glamorization is something that is splashed across cinema screens and adult magazines to earn a profit, but at the same time is also a topic that schools and families don’t educate their children about. Rape is something that is talked about, but never really talked about.

Hudson_rape_culture_picture_small Rape culture stems from these twisted ideas because too many people accept that the objectification and degradation of women from peers and the media is the societal norm. Americans don’t believe that this is wrong; rather they believe that if they keep quiet about the crimes done to them, or to others, the crimes will simply go away. But more and more people, almost exclusively women, believe that rape is something that is unavoidable. Rape culture is not just about rape; it’s about the growing idea that women are objects to be used once and then thrown away, which then creates the concept that sexual assault is normal and even expected.
