Rape culture, as it has been so cleverly named, is the notion that men rape women because of how they dress, act, or simply look. This is a popular reason accused rapists/sexual assaulters use to make it look like they didn't do anything wrong. Rape culture is wrong in stating that men can't control their urges but rather they simply don't and that is the problem. Also, stating that 'men are rapists' is simply sexist and incorrect, while there are men who are rapists, there are also women who are guilty of the same thing although the ratios are very one-sided at 1 in every 10 rape victims being male and about 93% of the perpetrators being male and about 6% being female in cases of rape against males. My entire point is that rape is not a gender or sexism thing, it is an issue of entire planet proportions.

Rape culture is not made up. Mind you, the notion of men (and tomboys -- the ones who are gay and act like and hang out with fellas) raping women (note I say men raping women, not rape in general) because of power is made up nonsense to give feminists more ammo. But rape as a culture does exist. There is no such thing as sexism (if anything the sexism is against men) -- that's just a made-up concept done to make men ashamed of being men. In countries where sexual immorality is rampant (Denmark, India, China) rape is common and often unpunished. So rape culture is a very real thing, but it seldom is personal against women. You have to remember, my friend, there are losers who can't take no as an answer. Some will want a quickie no matter what. Rape culture is very real, just not real for the reasons ignorant feminists say it is.

I agree with most of what you say except that if rape was an entire culture, it wouldn't be a crime, it would be a frowned upon piece of society (like Witchcraft or Homosexuality). Rape is a part of many cultures around the world, larger in some places than in others, but should it be the entire culture, as you have stated, it would actually be about power and clothes because, like every other culture in the world, they would want to be the most powerful and demonstrate that they have that power and it would bring about another form of terrorists that simply want to show that rape is the best way to go.

Except, many of those cases are in countries where sexual immorality is common. It has nothing to do with power. There is only one case in which rape is about power. If the country is an absolute monarchy -- and the king is in power, he does rape his bride to get sons. But even then, that's only in the monarchy. Amongst the regular folks, rape is common because the culture permits sexual immorality. You can call this a classic case of the evil that men do, a reference to the famous poem that I like very much. Denmark, hell even the USA during Jim Crow, India, Saudi Arabia are classic examples of cultures that permitted sexual immorality and rape. Yes it very much does exist. In times of war, rape is more a tool of the enemy to humilate the enemy country. Yes it does happen. Now, rape is not a woman-hating crime. It's a crime in which perverts who can't take no for an answer just will do whatever it takes to get free sex.

Blacks and other immigrant groups were accused of sexual immorality, fear of rape. No where here does it say power was the motive.

One study shows that lust and sexual pornography (not so much the porn) can indeed cause future sexual assault.

Rape culture is a result of immorality, not "hatred of women" (which is really nothing but an excuse for hating men really). Sexually immorality can turn even the best of men into monsters. Sexual immorality is not good at all. It leads to things like this. Countries that permit have a high condoning of rape. The USA in some ways was founded to escape all of this.

1 in 3 women worldwide will be sexually assaulted at some point in her life. When are we going to stop focussing on the females getting raped or assaulted and start focussing on the MEN that are raping and assaulting them, do the maths how many men at least once in their lives have raped a woman, but it always comes back to the same debate was it or was it not partly the fault of the woman, who knows situations can vary and every crime is different, but whats for sure is it was definatley primarily the fault of the rapist. I'm not saying females committing rape is impossible but the numbers are tiny in comparison.
