Vodka Rape Culture

OK, this blog was never meant to be a blog about rape culture, but it is fast becoming precisely that.  I look forward to eventually moving on to discussing Buddhism or early modern theatre or poetry or something else.  Thing is, this stuff is never going to go away, so I think I can expect to see rape culture popping up as a theme on this blog for quite some time.

Jezebel.com has a great article about this vodka ad, which is precisely what rape culture is all about.  Though I applaud the people at Belvedere Vodka who were behind taking the ad down, I have to wonder about those who green-lit the ad in the first place.
