The ugly reality of rape culture will only be found at the most unexpected places. A Facebook user named Anoushka Kapoor shared a picture of a ‘joke’ that Lemon Tree, a Bangalore’s luxury hotel, had put up in one of their bathroom stalls.
Here’s the image:
Her post says: “Read this ‘joke’ in the bathroom stall in Lemon Tree Hotel in Bangalore. I don’t know where to begin. I can’t even call this sexist, it’s blatantly advocating rape culture. Rapes can only ever be minimised if and when we stop treating consent as a matter of humour. Humour that relies on bringing down one sex/treats consent lightly/treats women as sex objects is not funny. This is NOT funny. This is rape culture. Share to raise awareness. I am shocked beyond words.”
