If progressives aren't denouncing this story, does that mean that they're part of the rape culture?
Of course, they are.
Then again, as we saw with the RAPE IS RAPE campaign, men can rape anyone and women can only rape women. They said that women in power (teachers, etc) can NOT rape males, even young males, below them in the power structure.
Vaginalists claim to be about gender equality, but they have remained silent on topics like this. In the UK, India, Israel and many other countries, they fought against making sex crime laws gender neutral.
