My definition of rape culture; "A specific area where people encourage, Condone, Or tolerate rape. " This being the definition of rape culture, I don't believe that we live in a country that believes that rape is okay. We arrest rapists, We put them in jail. None of us think it's okay.

Con may argue first, I'm open to having my mind changed.

*I have to censor the name of the debate, As I sometimes use my school issued computer for debates, And it blocks on the keyword of r*pe. I apologize if this causes any issues. *

Disclaimer: Please note that even though I am arguing pro, I do not support pro-rape culture in any way, And I am simply proving its existence.

While it may be true that rape is frowned upon in the United States of America, Non-consensual sex, And countries that support or secretly support it, Are not uncommon, Especially in third-world countries, Although not exclusively. When girls get married very young, Especially to older spouses, They will most likely be uncomfortable and unsure about intercourse and may voice this opinion. However, Their culture/religious beliefs may demand what is casually referred to as matrimonial sex. If the girl refuses, She will be hit and raped anyway. Some examples of this are rural India, Pakistan, And South Africa. I apologize for the brevity of this argument, But there are no other points I feel need to be made.

I should have clarified, I was simply speaking of rape culture in the United States. I agree, In third world countries, Matrimonial sex is a real thing and girls do get raped through that. I'm saying that rape culture doesn't exist in the United States. Rape culture among college campuses is commonly thrown around, And I just don't believe that we live in a country/area that condones or supports rape. I don't think that's true.

Unfortunately, This won't be much of a debate because I agree with you. Rape culture does not exist in the U. S, At least not for the majority of the population. I'm sure there are a few exceptions, A few immigrants and a few pedophiles/people with kinks who do support it, But most people do not support rape.

I'm sure there are lots of people who secretly agree with it and won't tell anyone, Though, Because that's just how f*cked up the world is.

Also, You're saying that by not investigating rapes that happen on their campuses, And putting rapists in jail, They're HELPING their image? I'm so confused.

It's your job to prove it to me. You give me links to those cases.

There is the Michigan State University, University of Maryland, And Florida State University cases that you can look up. They all have records of students talking to police and faculty only to be given the run around, Had their complaints dismissed without conducting an investigation, And even pressured by authorities to stop pressing the issue.

What does everybody call the supposedly higher rape rates and the police "doing nothing about it" on college campuses? Rape culture. That's what they call it. I am debating the core issue @mcsloth

Can you give me an example @Block19? Or some data to support that idea?

Yeah, Universities don't do enough when it comes to sexual assault and rape allegations. Usually its do to the impact it would have towards the universities public image.

Isn't this whole debate about a problem with a definition (definition being of "Rape Culture")? I don't think you could find a university in the United States that supports, Condones or tolerates rape, But I don't think you could argue however that universities don't have a problem when it comes to sexual assault and rape. This whole debate is missing the point and is just a waste of time. Debate the core issue, Not some throw away phrase.

Yeah I know. I was just mocking and making fun of the liberals and SJWs who accuse every white conservative of being a nazi.
If you actually thought that I meant what I said, Then truly I am wounded.
