Rape culture is just part of America these days. We can’t get passed it for some reason. In this case, the female audience, like a battered spouse, just can’t accept the word of another woman who claimed the film’s star and director raped her. She finally killed herself after she couldn’t get the criminal justice system in American to believe her. When women’s rights are taken seriously in this country perhaps we’ll be able to end the rape culture that makes ‘The Birth of a Nation” possible.
