Steubenville, Ohio Rape Case: The Response Video You Need To See


The short, must-watch video with a powerful message.

A simple, 26-second video instructing men what to do when a drunk girl passes out on the couch is spreading around the internet rapidly. In "A Needed Response," a guy finds someone on his couch, gives her a pillow, blanket and coffee and ends the short video saying "real men treat women with respect."

While Upworthy points out, it's hard to believe we even need such a PSA to remind everyone about the meaning of consent, it's great to see something like this go viral — and it's especially powerful in the wake of the Steubenville, Ohio rape scandal, where two high school football players raped and took nude photos of a drunk 16-year-old girl.

Watch the video below and be sure to pass it along.
