Ironically, this is probably true from the perspective of feminists, most of whom are the sort of women who have absolutely no reason to fear male sexual desire. Andrea Dworkin pictured above claims to have been raped at one point in her life. Putting Dworkin aside — likely with the help of some pulleys and an industrial-grade forklift — the vast majority of rape is not about power, or patriarchy, or whatever gender studies twaddle you may have heard.
Rape is an evolved reproductive strategy present in a wide variety of animalsincluding humans. This does not make rape good, any more than noticing the ubiquity of murder, theft and tribal warfare in human evolutionary history leads us to approve of murder, theft, or war. Man is an imperfect creature, and prone to evil in the absence of restraints on his worst impulses.
But while feminists incorrectly believe that rape is about power, their claim shines a light on their motives. Feminists who claim that rape is about power are projectingbecause they want to use rape for their own political ends. The Feminist Agenda The best way to understand human behaviour is to live by this rule: If we listen to what feminists say about rape, their motives are virtuous.
Rape is a horrible crime; they want to reduce and eventually eliminate it; they want to protect women from rapists. Feminists viciously attacked the unsuspecting columnist Emily Yoffe for offering the obvious advice that women who get really drunk are more likely to be victims of sexual assault.
Feminists attack anyone who suggests that women avoid walking by themselves late at night, or in revealing clothing. Feminists have made it verboten to suggest that women ever take any precautions to protect themselves from rape and sexual assault.
If you leave your new Ferrari on a bad street, unlocked with the keys in the ignition, is it your fault when your car gets stolen? The thief is still a thief, and he still belongs in jail. But until we do, intelligent car owners will take steps to protect their property. There is simply no point in arguing against feminists, who believe that teaching women to avoid high-risk behaviour is sexist and misogynistic.
Feminists male and female are either cynically aware that their arguments are ridiculous, or they are middling intellects, barely capable of regurgitating sound bites from their second-year sociology textbook.
So what are the true motives of the feminist advocates of Rape Culture mythology? Feminists want to define all sex as rape. They want to re-define drunk sex as rape. Feminists want to protect women from the consequences of false rape accusations. They want rape accusers to remain anonymouswhile the accused has his reputation publicly destroyed before any trial has taken place.
But this argument ignores the fact that there are three potential outcomes to every rape accusation:The Sudanese Woman: an Analysis of Gender Roles and Equality in the Sudan “If you look at any Muslim society and you make a scale of how developed they are, and how successful the economy is, it.
Also, “it starts to look like me and the feminists” should be “looks like I”. And “untitled” doesn’t really make sense. And if biology is a hard science, it’s on the extreme soft edge of hard sciences.

Reasoning about rape and rape culture is also influenced by gender and heterosexuality norms, and therefore is also changing through time and place.
For example, in South Africa the overriding "war culture", which emphasized masculinity and violence, led to a culture in which rape was normalized. Feminists want to maximize the number of men who get charged with rape. Feminists don’t care about actual rape victims. But they do hate men enough that they want to use rape as a political weapon against them, even if it means encouraging high-risk behaviour among college-aged regardbouddhiste.com their eyes, one girl’s unpleasant night is worth it, to see a dastardly patriarch spend a decade in prison.
How should you as a husband handle it when your wife directly refuses to have sex without a valid reason? Is there anything a Christian husband can do about this?
