When rape is a bigger problem than “I don’t approve of rape”

“Regardless of someone’s personal feelings about rape, the attitudes and beliefs about rape, rape victims, and rape perpetrators that we hold as a culture can support rape victims, place proper blame on perpetrators, and lead to justice. Or, those attitudes and beliefs can blame rape victims, make excuses for perpetrators, and lead to a world where only 3% of rapists will ever spend a single day in prison.

Guess which world we live in?”
