Whaddaya know, a second FTB blogger is currently being accused of sexual assault.
He, too has a handy-dandy excuse. As feminists, we must believe accusers. Surely, something must be behind this.
But in any case, we shouldn’t make too much of his excuse. Let’s remember this quote from an eminent feminist:
If you are unaware, everyone’s favourite band of rape apologists and individuals who’s list of causes supported include the status quo of India and Afghanistan which are both in the worst 5 places to be a woman. From their list of experts who have claimed that free disco access more than makes up for India’s massive problem with sexual assault and forced sex and a complete lack of development of anything approaching a consent culture.
The Afghanistan thing was just puzzling in my opinion. You may as well have claimed that Chris Brown is a great feminist for all the sense that article made.
But AVfM have weighed in on the multiple fake accusations going around FTB members. And look! I get a mention!
Isn’t that sweet? No? It’s certainly something after all.
So MRAs coming to read this? Here’s a lesson in what we consider libel.
Paul Elam is fully aware that I have shot down these rumours not once but twice. I have to repeat this here. My “handy dandy excuse” is my passport. You see in order to travel the world there is a universal system of little books that allows you to claim certain rights and benefits of travel by using it as a form of Internationally recognised ID. This gets stamped when you travel into and out of countries except the one of your own home residence.
Mine says that I am a subject of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. I am a Brit. A Limey. Like Dr. Who, Mr. Bean and the Queen.
And my travel documents for the ENTIRE year state that I have travelled between India and the UK. In fact for the past 5 years I have only travelled between the UK and India with flight changes in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and once in Frankfurt.
Now I am not strong on geography but I am pretty sure the USA is nowhere near these places although you wouldn’t know it in the Middle East.
This is not an excuse, this is a statement of empirical proof.
Your statement however was done in poor intention and after it was repeatedly clarified. And your comments about rape accusations that were fake?
Karma is a Bitch – Paul Elam
Psst. Karma doesn’t work that way. If Karma had anything to do with it, you would have to spend your next life as an Afghani woman and remember all of your “bitching” about them having it easy. That would be Karma.
No. I am afraid you picked on some fake accusations made by some people who literally think that any rape victim is probably making it up.
See the thing is Mr. Elam the only real people to bring it up were a group of anti-FTB people who thought it would be amusing. Never mind the damage. Unfortunately since I got that cleared up, my kicking boots are on.
What sort of person would do this?
Well. Dr. Myers is a trustworthy fellow. He has a lot riding on his trustworthiness. His blog has hundreds of thousands of readers. He is liked by many and has a career. He put all of that on the line for a friend whom he trusts.
Me and Jason got anonymous messages from disposable emails or random string emails. It wasn’t a “I have this story and this proof” it was literally a bile filed letter claiming I raped someone despite being half the world away. The problem with this accusation was that I was nowhere near the scene of the crime. Not even in the same country. In fact half the world away. I was as far away as humanly possible without becoming an astronaut.
These were brought up by people who think “Ho Ho Ho! Let’s Poison The Welll”. If we accuse them they will back down! Let’s threaten their reputations. Which is no problem for Mr. Elam since we all know what his reputation really is.
And yes it’s satire. But it isn’t very good. See? Satire would be me sitting on a throne made of naked women complaining about how oppressed I am because the throne is uncomfortable with a gigantic banner with A Voice for Me written on the back.
See, the MRA dialogue is so poisonous that despite perched at the very acme of society, they will honestly believe that their lives are horrid and entrenched in suffering. It is a selfish world.
No one is saying that you should analyse rapes properly and prosecute them according to evidence. The MRA think it’s a witch hunt but then again the MRA think some very absurd things about consent.
No what ensues is muck raking. Are you sure FTB’s Lousy Canuck is a good guy? He says he is but no smoke without fire?
Are you sure Greta Christina is not a secret Badger Poker? I hear she pokes badgers… with spoons. On Thursdays.
See you can claim anything, but if you make the claim you are going to have to back it up. I am willing to back up my alibi. I chose not to do so as I am an anonymous blogger behind a wall that protects me from the harassment and abuse and death threats and actual death that has plagued Indian skeptics and atheists. Taslima hides behind bodyguards for a good reason. Sanal is an another country and Narendra died last week to an assassin.
I value my anonymity. But I pointed this out since people here know what I do and where I am here. People know the claim is totally fake.
So what has it done? It’s just hammered home the absolute lack of moral standards of the anti-FTB (who basically hate anything here) which is like stating that you dislike me because you hate the brand of the Soap Box I stand on and confirms the hateful ethics of the MRA who cackle in glee at fake rape accusations aimed at us.
As I said.
You aren’t fighting for the rights of men but for the restoration of the status quo.
