Con

According to the dictionary, rape culture is defined as a society or environment whose prevailing social attitudes have the effect of normalizing or trivializing sexual assault and abuse.

America is NOT rape culture.

Rapists don't get high-fives or goody bags when they rape people. They get punished and go to prison. Even people who never even raped anybody in their life, and just made a rape joke can get fired from their job.

I actually remember the other day at the bar a guy talking to a group of guys and he shouted, "I raped someone," and he was given, like, at least 3 goody bags. So, you're wrong.

@pointydelta I"d first like to ask you why you believe that Ben Shapiro doesn"t know what he"s talking about in relation to this topic. Secondly, I"d like to say that there is no rape culture that exists in the United States. Although there is a small percentage of the population that may endorse rape, this group of people is obviously affected severely by mental illness. The act of raping someone and scarring them for possibly the rest of their life is in explicable horrible and anyone that is found to have committed a crime along these lines needs to be taken off the streets and locked up.

I think you will struggle to find anyone who actually agrees with this.

Ben Shapiro, with respect, is complete and utter trash on the subject. He's a vanilla conservative who has no idea what the hell he's talking about.

I can't be bothered to engage with someone who clearly misunderstands the priors anyway

@PointyDelta, then join the debate. Also, @thehappy has good advice. Ben Shapiro is great for a debate like this.
