I have been wondering about this. I hear rape culture a lot. It seems trendy for people to throw it out there. Yet if we really had a culture that accepted rape, then it would not be a crime. Then when i think about it, i remember all the people that seem to get away with breaking the law without any consequences: The priests, the bankers, the athletes, the super rich and the famous. Perhaps the problem is not a rape culture, but a culture that allows people to be above the law. The more i think about it, the more it makes sense to me. I am a veteran, and I knew of a lot of people that worked themselves into high positions and abused their privileges. Not for rape, but to exploit the system. If you are an E-7 or above, it takes a lot of effort to punish you if you break the law. Combine this with the fact that such people usually are senior in the command hierarchy, that it would both look bad for the command, and be difficult to press charges against.So hardly anything is done to them if they do break the law. This was part of why i got out. this also explains all the senior officials that keep getting busted for rape in the different branches of the military. The senior officer culture is notorious for being a closed minded social club. I bring this up, because to me, it seems like its very easy for people to disregard someone when they say "rape culture". But when someone says that there are too many people who are "above the law", people tend to agree with this.
