When A Drunk Girl Passes Out And A Group Of Boys Rape Her, This Is Who To Blame

Upworthy has shared an excellent video in which a narrator breaks down how a horrible rape case is the result of rape culture, as opposed to an isolated, unthinkable aberration. A high school football team in Steubenville, OH raped a drunk and passed-out girl and took video and photos of it, which were distributed online.

The video below explains how society, and specifically the media and TV/film, encourage and reinforce strong, remorseless masculinity, and discourage weakness as “gay,” and how the failure of parents, teachers, and coaches to teach young men to respect women and to not be what he calls “creepy” make incidents like the one in Steubenville possible and not totally surprising.
