The Psy of Life: Confronting Rape Culture

Howdy y’all!

At the Psy, we do not shy away from controversial topics. Hell, we aren’t shy at all, are we? So, this week, I ignore the devastating London fire, the mass shooting of Congressional folks, the revelation that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is being investigated for obstruction, Sessions’ testimony, even the stealth passage of the AHCA! Instead, I focus on rape culture prompted by recent personal experience, the Cosby rape trial, and the Uber misogyny mishegas.

It is not enough, though, to just tsk-tsk rape culture — who believes rape is a good thing? — but to look at the inhibitions that exist in keeping us from confronting it more directly.
