Shaming victims of rape, making women feel bad for having consensual sex, making fun and trivializing rape and not embracing sex positivity so the unfortunate victims of rape who want to put their rapist behind bars will have fear that they will be blamed.
1. Blaming a female for dressing like a "slut" instead of the rapists is an example of rape culture.

2. Teaching women how not to get raped instead of teaching, mostly men, don't rape is an example of rape culture.

3. Blaming the victim and not the rapist is an example of rape culture.

4. Telling rape jokes such as "This is my rape face" is an example of rape culture.

5. Denying rape culture exists.

The literal definition would posit a culture that advocates and normalizes rape, which is blatantly not true of the Western world and why people obviously deny it (because it doesn't exist).

Feminism's redefinition though... sigh... is a sub-ideology that concerns the collective issues, cultural ingraining and disparagement of rape. Basically a pseudo-theory that society has been groomed by patriarchy to enable and excuse rape.

Despite numerous flaws and dogmatic principle, many feminists and SJWs are pushing it as unequivocal fact. Its flagship slogan is "Don't tell me what to wear, teach MEN not to rape!".

Said slogan also defies reason.
A few tenets of this twaddle include:
- dissent of rape culture is proof of rape culture
- questioning a rape accuser is victim blaming
- rape accusers never lie
- consent is black and white
- porn grooms men to rape
- trials that do not find a conviction are rape culture
- this urban dictionary definition is rape culture

Rape culture is a completely made up concept.

A misnomer propagated by feminists that implies rape is an established and indulged past-time and seeks to equate any form of sexism with rape.
He's been convicted of rape and served his sentence. However, to consider his debt to society as paid would be rape culture.

That guy just winked at that girl and seems to think it's OK. That's rape culture for you.

#notallmen are rapists. But, according to feminists, #yesallwomen are victims because of rape culture.

A social theory that makes it okay to for SJW's to publicly humiliate those who are merely accused of rape no matter the facts of the sexual encounter. Due process means nothing to the followers of Rape Culture and they are often not swayed by matters of fact and depend on emotion and hearsay to ruin the lives of men who may have slighted them in some manner.
Billy Bob didn't want to date Jill, so she used Rape Culture to ridicule him and destroy his reputation.

A culture which sexually views women as objects and trophies to be "won" by men. Rape culture encourages and justifies men trying to 'obtain' women through dubiously moral methods with little regard for the wishes and feelings of the women involved.

Note: Rape Culture can also target men and LGBTQ people.
Dude 1: She didn't really want sex, but after getting her drunk, she just lay there and took it!
Dude 2: Awesome! *High five buddy*
Girl 1: Eww, I knew she was a total slut. She should take better care of herself.

Person 3 : You guys are all promoting rape culture. You should think about how your actions affect other people.

A society which sexualizes women, blames victims for being sexually assaulted and does not demonstrate respect for women.
The victim blaming that occurred in Steubenville, Ohio in 2013 is an example of rape culture.
