  •  Although it had nothing to do with rape, it is not (13+ / 0-)

    just male culture in the US but all over the world.  60 minutes had  a piece about the battle between the Nun's on the bus and the Vatican.  The Vatican wants to silence the Nuns who are asking for a voice.  Women do the work of the Roman Catholic Church but must do it in silence and without a voice.  The nuns are saying enough of this crap.  The old men of the church have destroyed it with their arrogance and stupidity and it is now time for them to step aside.

      which apparently has blown the lid off of the a monstrous social problem.

      I think Hillary was right - this is going to be the "Century of the Woman."  For every rape we have heard about, there are ten or more we have not.  For every woman who stops her boyfriend or husband when he does something he doesn't care for in bed, there are an equal number who decide that it's not worth it to 1) hurt his feelings or 2) have a fight, so they just decide to "get it over with."

      What will the world look like, when women can do whatever we please, without fear of shame, harm, or blame, from ourselves as much as from men?  

      I think we're going to find out.

      meaning until they once and for all begin an active campaign against sexual violence.

      No means no.  Too young means no.  A priestly vow of chastity means no.  

      The best way to stop the spread of AIDS in Africa is to actively work to stop men from raping women through education and the rule of law.
