Harvey Weinstein is another celebrity rapist allowed to abuse women for a substantial period of time. But, it really is ALL MEN. Try these three thought experiments about rape culture, and tell me what you think.
In another installment of our favorite sad series, Yes Virginia, it is all men. Men at the ARS Electronica Festival gang raped an AI sex doll into being so broke it couldn’t ride business class back to Barcelona but had to suffer the humiliation of being sent freight.
