Chris Menning’s “Rape Culture Part 2: Society, Sports and Capitalism”
January 14, 2013 § Leave a Comment
Last week I was delighted, surprised and disgusted when Chris’ video on Steubenville football and rape culture “went viral,” as the kids say. Delighted because Chris makes great videos and it’s about damn time that lots of people start watching them, surprised because this video is essentially the anti-meme, making it an unlikely candidate for virality (it’s long; it’s depressing; it’s about rape culture) and disgusted because, as I said in response to Part 1, it’s awful that these kinds of videos need to be made. Part 2 is every bit as difficult but every bit as necessary, so enjoy I guess. Also, due to subject matter, probably somewhat occasionally NSFW, depending on what kind of work you do.
