#rapecultureiswhen trended on Twitter last night, seemingly sparked by Zerlina Maxwell (@ZerlinaMaxwell) after she was told she was "overhyping rape culture."

This article is a collection of some of my favorite tweets because I think awareness is important. Many people ignore the existence of rape culture, or if they acknowledge it they do not understand its extent. So:

Rape culture is when...

any talk about rape turns into the obvious fact that "not men all like that!" instead of "too many men are like that."
@gogreen18

men are allowed to travel, go out at night, get drunk, wear whatever they want--without it being seen as "asking for it."
@gogreen18

a song about having sex without consent (with lyrics straight from rapist's mouths) tops the charts for an entire year.

I see the concept for Schrodinger's Rapist getting a lot of flack. People, when confronted with this idea, say things like "This is stupid. Not everyone is a rapist!" or "This is just feminist propaganda meant to instill paranoia in women and make them afraid of men."

I personally think that everyone who wants to abide by the theory has every right to do so. Let me give you an example:

About two years ago I was seventeen and during Halloween break I was working in my Mum's office. But there was one day when my Mum couldn't drive me home and I had to get the bus. This was all fine - I was perfectly capable of organizing a bus for myself and then walking home from the bus station. My journey to get home that day was a half hour bus ride and then another 40 minutes walking down a dark street to get to my home which was a bit out of the way. Not a problem, I'd walked that road countless times much later in the night.

But this day was different. As I was waiting for the bus to arrive a man approached me. This man was in his mid to late twenties and seemed to be travelling. He hadn't shaved in a few days and had a hiking bag with him....

Censorship is probably my favorite thing to debate about. So I wanted to type an article about the issue.

For one it's super annoying. The obnoxious beeping mid-verse in some songs is really irksome to listen too. Small pauses aren't as bad, but still. Censorship can really ruin a good song. As for TV I understand it more with censoring anatomy should children be watching (I'll address that in a minute) but censoring the finger or words that characters/people say on TV follows the same thing as above the bleeping is annoying and the finger, I personally don't take offense to it.

About the whole children could be watching argument. All I can say is parents should be watching their kid. If they want to be overly sensitive they should be the ones sheltering their kid, not the government. I think it's kind of annoying that because a handful of people are sensitive that everyone loses their ability to decide for themselves what they want to watch.Why should we have to be sheltered because some people don't want their kids exposed to certain concepts but are too lazy to shelter them themselves. Now I (if I was a mother) wouldn't go out of my way to point...
