A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.

When I was 16, I had a fake I.D. and decided to go to a gay bar by myself because some friends bailed on me. While there, an older gentleman bought me a drink. He wasn’t a creeper, and he definitely wasn’t unattractive. I accepted the drink and began talking to him. No big deal. As the hour progressed, I felt myself feeling strange. I mentioned that I felt like I had a headache, and this guy helped guide me out of the bar. As we were walking down the street, the thought of, ‘Oh god, he’s drugged me, I’m going to die’ came to my head. I tried to get away, but I was so drugged up that I could barely walk, let alone speak. It also didn’t help that I had really large ‘goth’ platform shoes because I was going through a phase. Anyway, this guy brought me to his suv and began undressing me. As a final act of defiance, I hit him over the head with my platform shoe. He then punched me, and I remember thinking, ‘Why don’t they ever give workshops to gay guys about being victims of rape too?’ While I was as careful as possible, I never saw the guy slip something in the drink. I even watched the bar tender make the drink. Anyway, I lied there completely paralyzed while this pervert was lubing up. I locked eyes with his for a moment, and that’s when it happened. A very large and angry drag queen opened the door of the vehicle and beat the shit out of my attempted rapist. She and her other drag friends helped dress and care for me while the police arrived. I was saved by a group of guardian drag queens. They were basically the modern day ‘angels from heaven.’

mrthebear:
Don’t. Just don’t. There’s plenty of ways women get taught or told or whatever to watch out for rape and don’t get yourself in a position to be raped and shit along those lines. You rarely see anything towards men about not raping. Do not fucking rape plain and simple. And it should be talked about and addressed just as much as trying to avoid it, if not more. It’s known that it is wrong to do and not raping should be something addressed in school just as much as trying to look out. Stop that shit at the source don’t wait and then react to it. No means no and if she can’t give you a response it’s a fucking no so DO NOT RAPE.

‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.

There is no great stigma attached to being a rapist. Of course, it’s not a word anyone wishes to see applied to themselves. We’d all hate to be called rapists, just as we’d hate anyone close to us to be accused of rape. But when it comes to committing rape - actually having sex with someone who is not consenting? It seems a lot of us are totally cool with that. Go ahead, rape away, just make sure no one calls it by that name. 

A 2010 survey reported by Sky News revealed 46 per cent of men aged 18 to 25 do not consider it rape if a man continues to penetrate a woman after she has changed her mind. Last week a survey conducted by Rape Crisis and Reveal magazine showed a third of women do not believe a rape to have taken place if an alleged victim did not fight back. It’s only eight years since a poll by Amnesty International suggested 8 per cent people believe a woman to be totally - that’s totally - responsible for rape if she’s had many sexual partners. The truth is, an alarming number of people are very comfortable indeed with the idea of rape in certain circumstances. Like George Galloway, they merely see it as “bad sexual etiquette”. Rape doesn’t horrify them, not a bit; rape accusations do.

I don’t know who wrote this, so I can’t thank them personally, but I can at least help spread their words.

Men should be offended when someone claims that women should prevent rape by not wearing certain things or not going certain places or not acting in a certain way. That line of thinking presumes that you are incapable of control. That you are so base and uncivilized that it takes extraordinary effort for you to walk down the street without raping someone. That you require a certain dress code be maintained, that certain behaviors be employed so that maybe today, just maybe, you won’t rape someone.

It presumes that your natural state is rapist.

Am I arguing that girls and women shouldn’t be held responsible for their behaviour? Not at all. If a woman drinks to excess, then falls over in the street, loses her wallet and vomits all over her shirt, she has only herself to blame. But rape is not a consequence of getting drunk. It’s a consequence of a man deciding to rape someone.

Robbery and Rape

hoppypoppy:

Our house was broken into last year. We were on vacation, and found out about it because our friend who stopped by to feed the cats alerted us. The thieves tried all kinds of different ways in till they found one that worked, and eventually made off with a number of things, among them my Mac Powerbook and our large flat-panel plasma TV. It was more an inconvenience than anything else, because we were insured (although not well, it turned out…) and they didn’t take anything personal or irreplaceable. A ripple in our lives, if you will.

Here are some things that did not happen following the robbery and subsequent investigation:

  • No one pointed to our large front windows and remarked, “Of course someone came in and took your TV. You were flaunting it through those huge windows. Who could blame them?”
  • No one remarked on gifts we had given to people in the past and implied or outright stated that obviously the thieves just assumed we were giving them our TV, since we have given other people gifts in the past.
  • No one took an in-depth history of our past gift-giving behaviors, including what the first gift we ever gave was, how old we were at the time, and how many people we had given gifts to since then.
  • The detective conducting the investigation never paused, looked at Sean, and asked if we were sure we wanted to continue the investigation, because this kind of thing could really ruin the thieves’ lives, and were we absolutely certain we hadn’t just given them our TV and forgotten?
  • No one suggested, even for a moment, that maybe we had given the thieves our TV and then regretted it afterwards, so we made up this whole “theft” story just to punish them.
  • No one said that if we had really wanted the thieves to not take our TV, they wouldn’t have—we would have had better locks on our doors, we would have had ADT. No one suggested that it was really our fault that someone took our TV.
  • It was never implied that we should feel grateful that such clever thieves wanted our TV in the first place, or that we should feel fortunate that our TV was so nice that someone would want to take it. 
  • No one said anything ridiculous, insensitive, and unsupportive like “I wouldnever allow my TV to be stolen!” or “I would rather be dead than have someone steal my TV.”
  • We’ve never been made to feel that we are somehow “damaged goods” or “troublemakers” because someone stole our TV.

Why is it that the same courtesy extended to us, who suffered what I described as no big deal, a ripple in our life, isn’t extended to rape victims? Even rape victims who are too young by definition to consent to any type of sex?
