Rape culture is still a huge issue in our world and one of the biggest myths that help to perpetuate it is the belief that someone can “ask for it” through their clothing, demeanor or by acting flirty. In truth, the only real form of consent is through someone actively agreeing to another’s advances.
This piece proclaims that women should be as fun and flirty as they choose, while retaining the right to say “No” without danger to their safety or being disrespected. Everyone has the right to refuse unwanted advances, regardless of how they are dressed or present themselves. This bubbly piece by Leri Kuznetsova showcases a woman’s power over her own body and is a reminder to always wait for consent.

While women have made huge strikes towards equality over the years, there are still signs that rape culture is alive and thriving. Statistics show that 1 in 16 women are coerced or forced into their first sexual experience. In the wake of #MeToo, experts believe that a shift needs to be made from teaching people not to be raped to teaching people not to rape. (The Guardian)
There is no scientific basis that someone could dress so provocatively that a person “loses control” and assaults them. The orbitofrontal cortex is a regulator in every person’s brain that gives them the ability to overcome their arousal. As with other crimes, impairment caused by drugs or alcohol are not an excuse for ignoring this regulator. In other words, it is never a victim’s fault for their assault no matter what the circumstances might be. (The Guardian)
