Shakesville: White House Rolls Out "It's On Us" Campaign →

rapeculturerealities:

Two things to note at this point:

1. The campaign is very focused on bystander intervention, despite the fact that many anti-rape activists (myself among them) have repeatedly communicated, at each stage of their campus rape prevention action plan, that an emphasis on bystander intervention is problematic for multiple reasons. Instead of listening to these concerns, the White House has now rolled out an entire campaign centered explicitly around intervention.

2. In neither the PSA nor the pledge is anyone asked to not rape. "It’s on us" to stop sexual assault—and yet sexual assault is being discussed as though it’s just something that happens to people, like a natural disaster. This rape prevention campaign doesn’t even include rapists in its messaging about personal accountability for preventing rape. Instead, it’s directed at everyone but rapists. Now, not just victims are tasked with the responsibility to prevent rape; but everyone is. Everyone except rapists.

An effective rape prevention campaign shouldn’t double-down on the sinister rape culture narrative that rapists aren’t accountable for rape.

Further, to write rapists and potential rapists out of the messaging, to fail to include simple and straightforward language like, “It’s on us to not rape other people,” the campaign suggests that rapists are outside of us, other than us, strangers lurking in the dark and waiting to harm us. This, despite the fact that a woman on a college campus is more likely to be assaulted by the friend who walks her home than the proverbial stranger who jumps out of the bushes.

Act my age?
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.

Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE
They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE
THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW
some of the more reputable sources: x, x

Other sources: The Sydney Morning Herald    The Los Angeles Times
