Feminists assure us that we live in a rape culture. Do we?
Feminists tell us to teach men not to rape, but what is a major predictor of a boy developing into a rapist?
Being sexually abused by women.
So, I guess the feminists’ campaign “don’t teach women not to get raped, teach men not to rape” should be replaced by “don’t teach boys not to rape women, teach women not to rape boys.”
85% of male rapists, motivated by displaced anger, grew up in fatherless homes
How’s that “Toxic Masculinity” theory working out?
>70% of false allegations (in general, not just rape) are made by women, ~90% of false accusers are white. Whether male or female – false accusations are overwhelmingly motivated by attention/sympathy (~50%), not profit (~10%).
2-10% of rape accusations are false. We hear all the time how rare it is for a false rape accusation – that women should simply be believed – yet the rate is greater than crimes falsely alleged in general – so unless we want to do away with due process entirely, we cannot simply “believe the victim”. Our entire judiciary is constructed on the assumption of innocence, that is, believing the accused/doubting the victim. This is not how most of history operated. These people argue to turn back to the Dark Ages, and even earlier. The real issue is non-reporting and not investigating.
The FBI puts the number of false rape allegations at 8%. These are allegations that were reported and investigated, only to be discovered they are false accusations.
According to RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network), only 6% of those accused are convicted. If both stats are to be believed, this means that men are more likely to be falsely accused of rape than convicted.
A disparate number of falsely accused are black – to some, other races really do look similar, within their group (black people look alike to non-blacks, as is for whites, asians, etc – some refer to this as implicit bias, though I contend it is the novelty effect).
“Judging from exonerations, a black prisoner serving time for sexual assault is three-and-a-half times more likely to be innocent than a white sexual assault convict. The major cause for this huge racial disparity appears to be the high danger of mistaken eyewitness identification by white victims in violent crimes with black assailants.”
This means ~72% of those falsely accused are black.
Women are raped by men at nearly the same rate that men are raped by women.
If the CDC figures are to be taken at face value, then we must also conclude that, far from being a product of patriarchal violence against women, ” rape culture ” is a two-way street, with plenty of female perpetrators and male victims.
How could that be? After all, very few men in the CDC study were classified as victims of rape: 1.7% in their lifetime, and too few for a reliable estimate in the past year. But these numbers refer only to men who have been forced into anal sex or made to perform oral sex on another male. Nearly 7% of men, however, reported that at some point in their lives, they were “made to penetrate” another person — usually in reference to vaginal intercourse, receiving oral sex, or performing oral sex on a woman. This was not classified as rape, but as “other sexual violence.” And now the real surprise: when asked about experiences in the last 12 months, men reported being “made to penetrate” — either by physical force or due to intoxication — at virtually the same rates as women reported rape (both 1.1% in 2010, and 1.7% and 1.6% respectively in 2011).
Even The Daily Beast found the 1 in 4 and 1 in 5 statistics to be poppycock:
The study clashes with data gathered by the Justice Department
between 1995 and 2013, which found that college-age women who aren’t students are more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than women who are students. The number of victims was significantly lower than those in other recent surveys: 7.6 of 1,000 non-students compared to 6.1 of 1,000 students.
Even Forbes recognizes the 1 in 5 statistic to be what we’d expect in War-Zones.
These are the sort of numbers we would expect to see in war zones…
This sort of language does not promote a mindset conducive to a fair process for accused students or taking the time to look for best practices to prevent and respond to sexual assault. This hurts everybody. We have seen these sort of panics about sexual menaces before and we should learn the lesson that the outcome is often shameful. Panic about black men raping white women led to lynchings. More recently, panic over “sexual predators” has led colleges to endorse overly broad definitions of sex crimes and an over-eagerness to punish perceived transgressors. Overly broad measures often harm the very people they are intended to help. Those who doubt this should read a shocking piece by The New Yorker’s Sarah Stillman
about children who end up on sexual predator watch lists.
Soy wreaks havoc on males. Suspiciously, it remains a health trend. Not all that glitters is gold, and not all that is supposed to be good actually is. It’s become taboo to acknowledge biological differences between the sexes, but don’t believe the hype. What’s good for the goose is not always good for the gander. Is soy one such item?
“Men aren’t supposed to have breasts,” he says today in a quiet Texas drawl. “It was like my body was feminizing.”
“My sexual desire disappeared,” he says. “My penis—I won’t say it atrophied, but it was so flaccid that it looked very small in comparison with the way it used to be. Even my emotions changed.”
Men’s Health Magazine
“Infants who consumed soy-based formula as newborns had differences in some reproductive-system cells and tissues, compared to those who used cow-milk formula or were breastfed, according to a new study.”
The study says the differences are subtle, but there.
“Do real men eat soy? Perhaps. But if they want to become fathers, they may want to limit their tofu intake. A new study shows that downing soy products may lower sperm count.”
Sperm count has dropped 60% in 40 years due to “modern life”
“Studies show that men’s testosterone levels have been declining for decades. The most prominent, a 2007 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, revealed a “substantial” drop in U.S. men’s testosterone levels since the 1980s, with average levels declining by about 1% per year. “
“Toxicologists estimate that an infant exclusively fed soy formula receives the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day.”
“Plastic surgeons are reporting a record number of “man boob” reduction operations as the rise in demand outstrips that for all other procedures, including women’s breast enlargement.”
“People with high testosterone are more likely to enjoy ‘unsophisticated’ music, whereas men with less testosterone favoured classical music and jazz; testosterone might affect the the area of the brain that controls emotions.”
Of course, soy is particularly popular amongst “herbivore men”. Vegetarians and vegans can be particularly insufferable, so I thought our readers might take comfort in the knowledge that 84% of them abandon their diet within the first year. The next time you have to endure the self-righteous criticism of one of these people, realize that most of them are recent converts, and say what I say: “Come talk to me in a year”.
“…most vegetarians don’t last. In the United States, most meat-abstainers lapse within a year, according to a new report
put out by the the Humane Research Council, an animal advocacy organization”.
