It's On Us, the national campaign to end sexual assault on college campuses, reveals the creepy subtext of rape in a texting conversation between two students in its latest video.
The video, by Mekanism, uses the autocorrect feature on smartphones to reveal what's really going on as a guy chats about his night to a friend -- for example, changing the words "that drunk chick I was talking to at the party" to "that drunk chick I was targeting" or "I had to encourage her a bit" to "I had to force her a bit."
