A few weeks ago, I wrote about a Title IX requirement that the civil rights of accusers and accused be balanced in educational situations involving allegations of sexual violence. Unsurprisingly, this attracted the Google alert attention of a men’s rights advocate. Eventually, I got him off the topic of cherry-picking feminist quotes (or made up feminist quotes) and onto the topic at hand.
This is when we discovered what he actually thinks counts as rape and whose fault it is. First off, you have to know that–despite me presenting him with scientific evidence on the topic–rape is mostly made up.
Considering false rape claims hover somewhere in the range of 40-60% & considering the many incentives women already have to make false allegations of rape, it doesn’t take a feminist to see how this ludicrous mandate will definitely translate into extreme hardship for the accused whom will be men 99.999% of the time.
It is also completely avoidable. Duh.
I’ll pre-empt a probable question-answer right now by saying women can avoid being raped by drinking responsibly, avoiding high risk situations & by not dressing like a slut & putting the message out there that they’re “hot to trot”. I think its odd they even need to be told this…
And it’s not what you think it is–simply nonconsensual sex.
I think most normal people’s perception of rape includes; tearing clothes, biting, kicking, screaming, & violence.
The “researchers” in your “studies” say that if a man has sex with a woman who is intoxicated, then he has committed rape. The problem with this is, no, he hasn’t. You & you alone are responsible for how much you drink. If you drink excessively & end up sleeping with somebody you later regret, learn from that mistake & move on.
But do remember that this is a movement that is all about the rights of men…to do things like rape passed out college women without risking their education by it.
