Rape Culture – what is it really?

We often hear about how women are raped at a higher rate than men, or that one in five women are raped in the USA.
But a fact that is rarely spoken about is that men are raped at a higher rate than women.
It’s like people can not put two and two together any more.

Look at the incarceration rate of men compared to women in US prisons.  Think about the rape culture in prison.
Also in non-prison situation, men are victims of unwanted sexual contact at a higher rate than women are.

If there is a rape culture in the USA, it is by in large society made up of more male rape victims than women, and this is a taboo topic that is rarely discussed.
