I Always Said I Didn't Like Country Music, But A Song Against Rape Culture Changed My Mind

What I wouldn't give to poke rape culture* in the eye with a sharp stick. This artist and the songwriter are pretty smart — a catchy, simple song with a striking video marketed to teens who really need this message? Sheer brilliance.*Keep in mind, when I say "rape culture," I'm not saying it's obvious rape happened in this video's scenario. But whether she was drunk and anything happened that she didn't have her faculties to consent to OR whether she was sober and chose to let him take pictures he then decided to share without her permission, either of those things are part of rape culture. Bottom line: A woman's body and sexuality in some way were being commandeered without her say so.
