And men still aren't.
See this is the problematic thing I find about all of these arguments regarding "rape culture." I've yet to read one that accentuates how rape is a crime that is committed against both genders. And I'm not talking about the "violence against women also harms men" arguments, I'm talking about pointing out that men who are raped by women actually have it worse in our culture.
Also, pointing out that they actually exist.
I just find the whole thing odd. If people are campaigning for rape awareness, you really would think that the number of men who get raped and their treatment by society would be a subject of discussion, as opposed to the focal point being exclusively women.
Of course rape is a crime committed against both genders. That's not the point.
Only one gender is taught that coercing the other to have sex by any means is considered sporting and cool. Only one gender has major pop cultural, religious, and political figures who have admitted to (or continue openly!) to brutalize individuals of the other gender. And only one gender commits 80%+ of these crimes.
Of course we need to fix the problem of female-on-male (and male-on-male!) rape. But the one is systemic, the other incidental.
