{November 4, 2013}   Men Perpetrate A Culture of Rape

I find the following facts disturbing: 1) the word rape exist because it defines an unlawful act committed by men against unwilling women and girls; 2) woman who die from date rape and date rape drugs are 99 percent of the time killed by a man, or men; 3) a culture of rape exist because of medieval ideas about the relationship between men and women; 4) these ideas are perpetrated by men; 5) people who have historically defined what rape is and is not have predominately been men ttp://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/08/men-defining-rape-history; 6) predators of women and girls are predominately men; and 7) men don’t understand the word “no,” when spoken by a woman or girl  (http://www.womensweb.ca/violence/rape/surviving.php.) 

It is a lopsided equation. So what is the answer? How do we change a gender related predatory predisposition? Why do some men have it and others do not? What is different in the non-predatory male environment? How do we change behavior of predators who will put a poisonous drug in an unsuspecting woman or girl’s drink? There has to be a shift in consciousness. How can this happen? I don’t know. Women have to want it to stop for all women across the planet just as passionately as they want breast cancer to end. There is some huge disconnect in the world that there even exist such a concept as a culture of rape. But take a look around, watch television, listen to music, read the internet…it’s there…it’s everywhere in the world.

Why doesn’t everyone agree to honor and respect each other no matter what the gender, or the race, or the religion, etc. We need a human chain of people holding hands stretching around the planet. Coming together in harmony. We need to synchronize around the planet and everyone meditate at the same time. It’s time to lift our consciousness. We need to be figuring out more about how we all benefit when we join together rather than when we fragment by hate crimes. Violence isolates. Kindness unifies. There is goodness in every human soul so when you read this do something especially nice for someone. It doesn’t matter who…it doesn’t have to be someone you know, just anyone…one act of kindness…Pass it on.
