I strongly identify with what I've learned about third wave feminism. I don't know if I'd go so far as to call myself a feminist because I hate labels but I do share alot of the same beliefs. I feel that rape culture exist. I don't think that a guy will watch a movie then go rape a woman, nohting in life is that simple. I do believe however that if you are consistently viewing men being violent towards women verbally, sexually, physically and psychologically as a man you will eventually get used to it and think of that behaviour as normal.
