“Does he think some girl is gonna see him and say "oh my, what a nice guy, he'll be my prince in shining armor!", and be able to get a girlfriend?”
Wow… that’s IMAX levels of projection.
@Bastehotep I wouldn’t say there’s a problem with “continued normalization of sexual violence”, since rape rates in America have dropped by more than 60% since 1993.
@Titania Let’s not imply that only men can and do perpetrate sexual violence. Women have committed rape, even if it’s not always considered rape by law.
@Swede Imma be honest, I have some problems with what you’ve said.
“Almost all” seems pretty unlikely to me, given the statistics I brought up earlier. Even the oft-cited “1 in 6 college women” statistic is based on flawed studies.
I keep hearing about victim-blaming, but how common is it compared to other reactions? And how is “victim-blaming” defined? I’ve seen talk of inventing detectors for date-rape drugs called “victim-blaming”.
“We can’t see on the outside which men are rapists and which aren’t, so in order to follow all the “advice” we get about protecting ourselves from being raped and harassed, we HAVE TO treat all men as potential risks.”
Would you treat all black people as potential muggers? All Jews as potential scammers? Yeah, it’s technically true that all men are potential rapists… but the same can be said for all women.
“It ought to be boys and men that are taught how to avoid raping people.”
Again, implying girls and women can’t be rapists, and also that men and boys aren’t already being taught not to rape.
