"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon." ~ Gloria Steinem

SWTPTRC, part 2

Basic Definition Of Rape Culture: A culture in which ignoring and/or crossing the boundaries of others is implicitly understood to be normal, acceptable, and desired.

Venue: anywhere public dancing takes place, i.e. bars, clubs, music festivals
  1. Find the woman sitting/standing by herself. 
  2. Ask her why she isn't dancing, and regardless of her answer,
  3. attempt to convince her to dance.
Do not, under any circumstances, take no for an answer! It doesn't matter why she's not dancing; once she experiences your powers of persuasion, all previous excuses will be immediately revealed as the weak sauce they obviously are, and she'll be thanking you once she pulls the stick out of her ass.

Venue: anywhere
Upon being confronted with a female friend who, given the above circumstance, claims you would not be able to get her to dance,
  1. graciously concede that she would indeed be a tough nut to crack,
  2. remind her of your powers of persuasion, and
  3. remind her that she has not yet experienced them.
She clearly does not know herself as well as you know her. You could totally get her to dance.
