The name is Date GRAPE Koolaid. Not Date RAPE. Unless rape tastes like grape which it does not then these protesters are the ONLY ones who see an issue with the name. The can read which is apparent but fail to comprehend. Changing the name of a drink that has similarities to something else is nothing more than the placating actions of a patronizing person.
You want a proactive solution, start with the brain chemistry of the rapist. Those of us who have truly struggled and survived have become stronger. Those who have not need not be coddled but taught how to overcome. Until you overcome you will remain a victim. These protesters truly do not want you to overcome what has occurred. They want to keep you down and these protests prove they do not care about you. If they did they would help you up and to overcome this. So far the media wishes for you to not overcome this as it gives them the news they so desperately are too lazy to seek.
They imagine that they are right and the drink mocks rape victims. They imagine they are the heroes by standing up to the big bad rapists by standing up like idiots to the name of a drink. Much like disillusioned tyrants of the past they try to opress any that think differently than them.
