+Did Facebook's Graffiti Artist Admit To Sexual Assault On His Podcast?
David Choe jokingly admits to being a “successful rapist”.
"It’s dangerous and it’s super self destructive. I’m at a place and there’s potential for a lawsuit…and she has given me no signs that she’s into me or that this is appropriate behavior. In my head I go "Do you care if I jerk off right now?" and it sounds so creepy in my head that I go I can’t say that out loud … So I go back to the chill method of you never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later."
"…So I just start jerking off. So then her hands gets off my leg and she just stops … I go "Look I’m sorry I can’t help myself — can you just pretend like I’m not doing this and you continue with the massage?" And she’s like "All right" and she does … I’m like "Can I touch your butt?" and I reach out and touch her butt and she pulls away. She doesn’t want me to touch her butt."
"… I say "Kiss it a little," she says "No, all the massage oil is on it" and I take the back of her head and I push it down on my d**k and she doesn’t do it. And I say "Open your mouth, open your mouth," and she does it and I start facef**king her."
Rape culture is literally admitting to raping somebody and publicizing it online because you’re that sure nothing will happen to you — and nothing does.

"If more men spoke up before, during, or after incidents of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse by their peers, they would help to create a climate where the abuse of women—emotional, physical, sexual—would be stigmatized and seen as incompatible with male group norms. That is, a man who engaged in such behavior would lose status among his male peers and forfeit the approval of older males. Ultimately, this would cause a shift in male culture such that some men’s sexist abuse of women and girls would be regarded—by other men—not only as distasteful but as utterly unacceptable. In this new climate, individuals would be strongly discouraged from acting out in abusive ways because of the anticipated negative consequences: loss of respect, friends, and status, and greater likelihood of facing both legal and non-legal sanctions. In fact, if men’s violence against women truly carried a significant stigma in male culture, it is possible that most incidents of sexist abuse would never happen. This is because contrary to popular myth, the vast majority of boys and men who assault, harass, and bully girls and women are not sociopaths. They are average guys. Many of them see the sexist treatment of women as normal.
