Brock Turner only spent 3 months in jail because Judge Persky cared more about his future than justice for the survivor.
To defeat #rapeculture we must understand it.
In feminist theory, rape culture is a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. There is disagreement over what defines rape culture and as to whether any societies currently meet the criteria for a rape culture.
Behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm caused by some forms of sexual violence, or some combination of these.
The notion of rape culture has been used to describe and explain behavior within social groups, including prison rape, and in conflict areas where war rape is used as psychological warfare.
Entire societies have been alleged to be rape cultures.
Evidence suggests that rape culture is correlated with other social factors and behaviors. Rape myths, victim blaming, and trivialization of rape have been found to be positively correlated with racism, sexism,homophobia, ageism, classism, religious intolerance, and other forms of discrimination.

~~Rape Culture USA~~
~~Published on Sep 4, 2014~~
The number of women who have been raped in the United States is huge, and many argue that ‘rape culture‘ is the reason so many get away with it.
But what is Rape Culture, and how does it contribute to these shocking statistics?
AJ+ breaks it down, including some examples from Cee Lo Green, Daniel Tosh, and more.
We ALL are ONE!!
Among the most heinous of crimes. I advocate death penalty for this.

Speaking as a survivor when no-one believed my story it is hard to tell people that you said no. But to the rapist no means yes. Educating young men to respect women when they say no is vital. But that will never happen. We have had similar cases here in New Zealand with a cricketer who was acquited of rape in similar circumstances to Brock Turner about to play professionally for New Zealand. Disgusting. It is about time that the focus is on the victim, and his/her future. Not the future of these scumbags.
