Belvedere Vodka Puts Rape on the Rocks.

I will refrain from extended comment, however, the above ad-that was online briefly then removed-shows the casualness with which rape is treated in our commodity culture. Outside of violent rape, which is still downplayed and blamed on the victim, date rape and consent derived under the influence of alcohol is a serious issue that our culture makes light of. This ad highlights our culture of rape.
