Men Can Stop Rape’s new College Bystander Intervention campaign.
Actual good anti rape campaign posters! They don’t shame victims, they ask people to examine their own actions and inactions and protect their friends. And not in a gross excuse for chivalry either, just as people keeping people safe.
I like this.
Yep I agree. I also like how it’s not tying a man taking action around rape to some imaginary alpha male/hypermasculine sort of thing. Like a real man would do such and such.
Hey look! It’s an anti-rape campaign based on being a decent human being! In all seriousness, this is marvelous. I bolded the above for emphasis.
Here’s a checklist for both me and you guys.
Honestly, unlearning sexism has been hard because I’m surrounded by it and I’ve begun to hate the perpetrators (Ironically, they are mostly one sex … ). Also, some of that shit has been ingrained without me knowing it. Like rape perpetrated by women. Sometimes I don’t react as intensely as i ought to and I make myself feel sick for not feeling like I should. It’s hard to get rid of sexism when other people aren’t trying at all to.
I’m not giving up though. I want to be untouched by that bullshit.
