Derbyshire: Military Rape Victims Making It Up


In case you thought John Derbyshire, the racist git fired by the National Review for being a racist git, couldn’t get any more loathsome, he’d like to disabuse you of that opinion. In an essay in Taki’s magazine, he argues that women in the military are making up false rape complaints after voluntarily having sex with their superior officers because they’re just so attracted to “higher status men.”

(3) Women are strongly attracted to higher-status men. If male officers are in command of units containing women, human nature is placed under severe strain.

(4) Men who join the military are responding to widespread, innate male urges—the urge to break things and kill people, for example. Women who join the military are, by contrast, outliers in their sex. They are eccentric and prone to behave eccentrically. As a designated victim group, they are especially susceptible to the associated pathologies, e.g., victim hoaxes for attention, spite, or cash reward.

Wouldn’t you love to lock him in a room with a bunch of female soldiers who have been raped by their fellow soldiers and listen to him tell them that they’re just making it up?

    I usually just go to youtube and watch him getting kicked in the face by Bruce Lee.

    Derbyshire would not be frightened by the threat to lock him up with rape victims. In his mind he is a high-status male and the women would be unable to prevent themselves from fawning over him and begging for his sexual favors. He would learn to become frightened only when it was too late.

    I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women uh… women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh… I do not avoid women, Mandrake.

    Maybe the desire to kill is caused by the fluoride in his drinking water

    AFAICT, Derbyshire is generalizing from a sample size of one, himself.

    He has certainly broken his mind and killed his reputation as a worthwhile human being that anyone should take seriously.

    If it is women in the military who are susceptible to pathologies of “hoaxes for attention, spite, or cash reward,” what is your excuse, Derbyshire?

    Oddly enough, I have no urge to kill people, and I completely sublimate my urge to break things by watching MythBusters.

    But then I’m eccentric and prone to behave erratically.

    I wouldn’t argue that there is no innate urge at times to be violent, but if men were so naturally violent and willing to kill, military basic training wouldn’t involve any of the psychological conditioning that it does.

    As a Captain in the US Army who is also happily married. I didn’t join to find a better catch either time I have entered military service. I wanted to serve my country and those who fight for us and had no thoughts of going through the “fun” that is a military entrance physical just to win a husband.

    I hate my integrity being impugned and being painted with the brush full of another’s assumptions and narrow-mindedness.

    Most of the men and women I serve with are excellent human people with their own complex reasons for wearing the uniform of our military services.

    Sounds like a meme started by higher-status rapists to rationalize their crimes for the public. Here’s a hint: Women are human beings, too. They carry just as much variety in desires as men. Some don’t care about status. Even if they are into higher-status men, that doesn’t mean automatic consent.

    How wonderful it is that you can pigeonhole humanity into such simple binary tropes with complete disregard for the complexity and variety of the human psyche.

    Oh, and there’s more to the military than breaking stuff. Some people like to protect things, whether it’s the lives of their fellow citizens or abstract principles. Some prefer the logistics side, where they get to build things or support others. Some want to be officers because they enjoy the tactical and strategic aspects, and enjoy winning by out-thinking their opponents. Other officers like to nurture their units. I’m not a soldier, but just as a gamer, I understand that there’s more to a military than team deathmatch on the front lines, engaging in raw damage races. When I play multiplayer games, I prefer being on teams that understand that.

    Isn’t Derbyshire essentially just a professional troll? He’s been writing deliberately outrageous shit since forever.

  11. Alverant says

    This reminds me of that incident over at Kickstarter where there was a project to publish a book about “picking up” women that said men should actually pick women up and put them on their laps (along with other things that should get a person arrested).

    fired by the National Review for being a racist git

    No, that is why he was hired and employed it seems. He was fired because it came around to bite them on the ass when he was too obvious about it.

  13. DaveL says

    If any male urge to break things and kill people were not far outweighed by a male urge to build things and raise new people, we would not now be living in an industrialized global civilization counting billions of people.

  14. Chiroptera says

    When Todd Akin made his crack about “legitimate rape,” this is what he meant by it.

    That, to me, was far more offensive than his utter ignorance of human biology.

  15. says

    Derbyshire has never been in the military and I doubt he’s known many military members. He seems to eb speculation based on Victorian social more and World-War-2 era war movies.

  16. frog says

    I’m certain that a large number of women are possessed by the desire to break things and kill when they hear shit like this come out of people’s mouths.

  17. escuerd says

    It seems that Derbyshire suggests that women in the military are atypical in a way that makes them lying attention seekers, but not in a way that allows them to resist the natural allure of a man with power.
