Transcript of Undressing Social Norms

Undressing Social Norms RA Winter Training 2013
By: Sam Grimaldi and Meg Norsigian Why are we here? To have a conversation with you about some of our experiences on our floors
We have found that one of the most important and fulfilling parts of the job for us has been being a resource and an ally for our residence.
Part of being a good ally and resource is being aware of the culture we live in:
So today we are hoping to have a conversation about a part of the culture we live , more specifically the hook up culture, and how being aware and conscious of the language we use and tolerate on our floors can affect both the atmosphere of respect on our floors and amongst staff and the way we are seen as a resource and a leader to our communities. What influences the hookup culture? Media
News
Video Games
Television
Reality TV
YouTube

More Rape Culture “A complex of beliefs that encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women. It is a society where violence is seen as sexy and sexuality as violent.”
-Buchwald, Emilie, Pamela R. Fletcher, and Martha Roth. Transforming a Rape Culture. Minneapolis, MN: Milkweed Editions, 2005 Victim Blaming The belief that the victim is at fault for what happened to them
The concept that “she asked for it”
“She liked to dress provocatively” Using Sexual Assault as a Compliment “Too ugly to rape.”
"No one wants to rape you, Shakes. Sorry to inform you.”
“Only driving a man to almost-rape you is definitive proof of your allure as a woman.”
“Rapable” Examples of Language “Bros before hos”
“bitch” as a term of endearment
“pussy,” “girl,” “bitch,” “lady” and “dyke” all as terms for men being weak
“I’ll make you my bitch”
That test “raped” me - minimizes rape The Truth about Sexual Assault and Rape One in 4 college-aged women report experiences that meet the legal definitions of rape or attempted rape.One in 5 college women are raped during their college years.
Most survivors of sexual assaults are full-time students.
In survey of 412 college students, it was found that 30.6% of the lesbian or bisexual women indicated that they had been forced to have sex against their will at some point in their lives.
80-90% of sexual assaults are perpetrated by individuals known to the survivor.
85% of rapes are committed by a person the victim knows. Approximately 95% of attempted/completed rapes go unreported Effective Role modeling Be aware of your own opinions/ biases
