Rape culture


“Rape culture,” let’s examine … been a lot of talk on the issue. Shall we dive right in?

Well … most of what people think they know about it, they don’t. We’ve all heard that 1 in 4 women will be raped by a man in their lifetime. That statistic comes from feminist Mary P. Koss, who did a study for Ms. Magazine. In that study, she determined that 1 in 4 statistic, except for one thing: she ignored her own test data. 73% of the women she claimed were rape victims specifically stated they were not raped. When you do the math and eliminate that 73%, the number goes from 1 in 4 all the way to 1 in 22. And according to statistics compiled by the FBI, the rate of rape has actually decreased more than 58% in the past 30 years. Meaning, the number is now closer to 1 in 34.

In “The Rape ‘Epidemic’ Doesn’t Actually Exist,” Caroline Kitchens reports:

The Bureau of Justice Statistics’ “Violent Victimization of College Students” report tells a different and more plausible story about campus culture. During the years surveyed, 1995-2002, the DOJ found that there were six rapes or sexual assaults per thousand per year. Across the nation’s four million female college students, that comes to about one victim in forty students. Other DOJ statistics show that the overall rape rate is in sharp decline: since 1995, the estimated rate of female rape or sexual assault victimizations has decreased by about 60 percent.

Well now, isn’t that interesting: much of what we THINK we know about “rape culture” is based on a lie. Misleading and intentionally manipulated data. So why the rhetoric? Why the propaganda? The ugly truth is that women rape men about as often as men rape women. Certain feminists have gone to GREAT lengths, and incredibly subversive methods, to conceal that fact. Men are simply not responsible for a rape culture.

Lets say, for example, we were to take Mary P. Koss at face value: 1 in 4 women will be raped by a man in their lifetime. Now, we know that’s complete nonsense: we know the women she surveyed said it was complete nonsense. We know institutions responsible for accurately tracking and parsing case files and data on a mass scale show unequivocally that it’s nonsense. However, just for the sake of argument, let’s take it at face value. I’m feeling incredibly generous, UNREASONABLY generous, in fact.

In “Sexual coercion in gay/lesbian relationships: Descriptives and gender differences,” published in 1997 in the journal Violence and Victims, 12 (1), 87-98, Lisa K. Waldner-Haugrud and Linda Vaden Gratch report that lesbian relationships admit and report that up to 50% of them experience sexual abuse committed on them by another WOMAN. That’s TWICE the volume of sexual abuse that Koss would have us believe MEN commit against WOMEN!

Similarly, according to the CDC NISVS report of 2010, 43% of lesbians have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner. Most studies of the subjects find rates over 30%, according to Lori Girshick, author of Woman-to-Woman Sexual Violence: Does She Call it Rape?

So even if we were to be utterly, unreasonably generous and accept Koss’s fake statistic of “1 in 4,” women rape other women in lesbian relationships more often than men rape women.

Now that we’ve put an initial damper on the idea of a male-dominated rape culture, would you like to see a real rape culture? Oh, there is one—you just don’t hear about it.

University of Michigan “Definitions”

Sexual violence
Examples of sexual violence include: discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex; criticizing the partner sexually; touching the partner sexually in inappropriate and uncomfortable ways; withholding sex and affection; always demanding sex; forcing partner to strip as a form of humiliation (maybe in front of children), to witness sexual acts, to participate in uncomfortable sex or sex after an episode of violence, to have sex with other people; and using objects and/or weapons to hurt during sex or threats to back up demands for sex.

“withholding sex and affection;”, “discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex;”

Gee, feminists, whatever happened to “HER BODY HER CHOICE”?—oh, but when a MAN doesn’t want to f*** you, that’s him inflicting “sexual violence” against you? Shouldn’t it be HIS body HIS choice? What about “NO MEANS NO”? Oh, sorry, right, that’s just for women, doesn’t apply to men, oh no no no.


Now anytime a man doesn’t want to have sex, the woman can accuse him of sexual violence and use that as coercion—to get sex. Which, by legal definition, is RAPE.

Clark University Definition: Rape.

Rape / Sexual Assault
Although the legal definition of rape varies from state to state, rape is generally defined as forced or non-consensual sexual contact.

Rape and/or sexual assault is forced, manipulated, or coerced sexual contact by a stranger, friend or acquaintance. It is an act of aggression and power combined with some form of sex. A person is forced into sexual contact through verbal coercion, threats, physical restraint, and/or physical violence. Consent is not given.

The definition of rape includes being MANIPULATED or COERCED sexual contact. A person is forced into sexual contact through VERBAL COERCION, THREATS.

So now, thank you, feminists—they’ve given free rein for women to threaten to report men for “sexual violence” if they don’t want to have sex. They’ve weaponized anti-rape guidelines, enabling women to rape men through manipulation, coercion, and threats.

So now a woman can coerce and threaten to report a man for sexual violence anytime he doesn’t have sex with her. Including when she’s DRUNK: so she could report him for sexual violence if he doesn’t have sex with her or rape if he does. Hurray! Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Sexual violence if you don’t f*** her when she’s drunk; rape if you do! Nothing quite like those catch-22 situations, huh? Come on, everybody loves that. At the University of Michigan, just dating a woman puts you in danger of BLACKMAIL!

Also included: “to have sex with other people”—they mean cheating on your partner. Cheating is now considered sexual violence. Yeah, it’s all the feminist theory of redefining behavior they don’t like as some form of violence by men against women (patriarchy!) put into practice.

If you have sex with a woman who’s intoxicated, it’s automatically rape. Not just passed out drunk, that’s rape too, but I mean anytime she’s legally intoxicated. Not plastered, not slurring words, not falling-down drunk, not hurling-her-guts-up drunk, not wobbling side to side. Legally intoxicated. If you have sex with her while she’s in that state, it’s rape. Even if she’s consenting, even if she’s initiating it, it’s always rape because anytime she’s legally intoxicated she cannot provide meaningful consent. So here’s the thing: if you have sex with her when she’s drunk, it’s rape. If you don’t have sex with her because she’s drunk and she wants nookie, she can accuse you of sexual violence for “withholding sex” and “discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex.” Meaning, it gives women free rein to blackmail their partners. If you have sex, it’s rape; if you don’t have sex, it’s sexual violence.

There is no safe option. There is no way to cohabit or carry on a relationship with a woman at UoM—at all—without the possibility of being accused of wrongdoing, which can then get you thrown out. And “withholding sex”—because I can guarantee no woman is ever going to be held to that standard, only men. Guaranteed. Means if you’re even dating a woman, she can rape you whenever she wants. She can hold that over your head and threaten/coerce you with it. Your body is her plaything.

It’s our right to say no. They’ve literally removed men’s right to say no. “No means no” doesn’t apply to men. “Her body her choice” doesn’t go both ways for men at UoM. Now, they have other definitions that cover coercion, but the simple fact is—once again—those definitions for punishable behavior simply aren’t going to be followed through against women. The staff who takes the complaints are probably ALL women. No woman is ever going to be punished at UoM for not putting out. No woman is ever going to be punished at UoM for using coercion to get sex. They’ll simply shame the dude—”Hey, you got laid. What are you, gay?”—and send him off or take down what he says and forget about it, like a local police department writing down a UFO encounter.

They might punish a woman who used coercion against another woman, but not against a man. Not going to happen. If you’re dating a woman at UoM, you have no right to your own body. It’s hers to play with whenever she wants. And feminists want to blame men for rape culture?

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: If there is a rape culture, FEMINISTS ARE CREATING IT!

According to Hanna Rosin in “When Men Are Raped”:

Data hasn’t been calculated under the new FBI definition yet, but Stemple parses several other national surveys in her new paper, “The Sexual Victimization of Men in America: New Data Challenge Old Assumptions,” co-written with Ilan Meyer and published in the April 17 edition of the American Journal of Public Health. One of those surveys is the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, for which the Centers for Disease Control invented a category of sexual violence called “being made to penetrate.” This definition includes victims who were forced to penetrate someone else with their own body parts, either by physical force or coercion, or when the victim was drunk or high or otherwise unable to consent. When those cases were taken into account, the rates of nonconsensual sexual contact basically equalized, with 1.270 million women and 1.267 million men claiming to be victims of sexual violence.

We have Mary P. Koss—you know, from the fake “1 in 4” statistic, same woman—to thank for having “made to penetrate” be added to the roster of classifications in the above CDC report. She lobbied the CDC to exclude male victims of female predators as being classified as “rape.” Now, if you ask the common person: if you are made to have sex with someone by being physically forced, or forced at gunpoint/knifepoint, coerced with threats of violence, you are unconscious, roofied, comatose, or any other form of incapacitation whereby you are incapable of providing consent or the sexual activity is committed directly against your will, is that rape? The vast majority of people would say yes, that is rape. Anytime someone conducts sex with you either against your consent or while you are incapable of providing consent, it is rape.

But not according to the CDC. Due to the actions taken by Koss, “made to penetrate” was created so that male victims of female predators could be discluded, by definition, from being “raped.” Therefore she could tout feminist statistics on female rape victims while completely excluding figures of males having been raped by women.

According to the CDC, a man cannot be raped by a woman even if he is physically forced, forced at gunpoint/knifepoint, coerced with threats, comatose, intoxicated, passed out, roofied, or otherwise incapacitated by any other means. By legal definition, he cannot be raped by a woman—no matter what. It’s instead referred to as “made to penetrate” and is therefore constituted as a form of sexual assault but not rape.

Let’s use a recent example, Ciera Ross. Ross, 25, stopped and asked a 33-year-old man if he wanted a ride. The man took the offer, but Ross’s true intentions became evident when she pulled a gun on the man. She forced the man to go to the backseat and told him to have sex with her friend. The man pleaded for the women to stop after they made him fondle the woman’s breasts and butt.

Ross then ordered the man to take his clothes off, and her friend began to assault him sexually. The women also took $200 and credit cards from the man. When he spotted a taxi, he ran from the car naked and jumped in the taxi, and the taxi driver allowed him to use his cellphone to capture the plate number of Ross’s vehicle and alert the police.

According to the FBI, and anyone with two brain cells to rub together, this is rape. This is clearly and undeniably, unabashedly RAPE. You threaten someone at gunpoint and force them to perform sex. That is rape by any reasonable, rational, logical definition of the term, that is RAPE. According to the CDC, that is not rape—that is “made to penetrate,” a LESSER sexual assault than rape.

Detecting the Scope of Rape : A Review of Prevalence Research Methods. Author: Mary P. Koss.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence  Volume: 8  Issue: 2  Dated: (June 1993) Page: 206

“Although consideration of male victims is within the scope of the legal statutes, it is important to restrict the term rape to instances where male victims were penetrated by offenders. It is inappropriate to consider as a rape victim a man who engages in unwanted sexual intercourse with a woman.”

Read that again a few times if you need to. Pay attention, “instances where male victims were penetrated by offenders”, so if a woman uses an object or her fingers to penetrate a man’s mouth or anus it is in fact still rape. However: if a woman uses force, threats/coercion (such gunpoint like the Ciera Ross case above) to force a man to put him penis in her or someone else , despite his protestations or forces it in herself such as if he is unconscious from alcohol or date rape drugs… It’s not rape. Why? Simple: “It is inappropriate to consider as a rape victim a man who engages in unwanted sexual intercourse with a woman.” I think most reasonable, rational, logical people would unanimously exclaim from the rooftops that “unwanted sexual intercourse”, when you have said no, is in fact Rape, wouldn’t they?

Thanks to feminist Mary P. Koss’s work with the CDC, “no means no” no longer applies to men. FEMINIST: Mary P. Koss isn’t just a “Rape Apologist”, she’s a full blown, verified, shameless “Victim Blamer“. She quite clearly in the same sentence, of her own written work, in an official document of the Department of Justice: National Criminal Justice Reference Service, absolves Women of raping men by exclaiming males raped by women are not victims of Rape. In the same sentence she, a feminist, exclaims that the victims “unwanted sexual intercourse” are NOT victims of Rape: provided the victim is male and the perpetrator is female. She does more than simply blame the VICTIM, she absolves the PERPETRATOR. I’ll say it again: If there is a rape culture, feminists are creating it.

This was done strictly so that Koss could publish intentionally tampered with and gender-biased research data on the rate at which female victims are raped. You see, having a number of males victimized equal to that of women doesn’t look good when you’re trying to talk about “patriarchy” and the inherent “rape culture” found in it, which has a narrative that all men are potential rapists and all women are potential victims.

If there was a male-dominated rape culture, rape would have been made legal before women could vote. Feminists, however, have gone through some very shady and underhanded tactics to conceal the rate at which men are raped by women—going so far as to reclassify the definition of terms to exclude men as being able to be raped by women. Just so they could publish altered statistics.

You want more proof? Child support laws, largely created by and lobbied for by feminists. Guess what’s been going on now? Male rape victims are being forced to pay child support after reaching the age of consent because their rapist got pregnant.

  • Nick Olivas: raped by 20-year-old at age of 14, ordered to pay $15,000 in child support.
  • Nathaniel J., raped by a 34-year-old at age of 15, makes $800 a month at Burger King, expected to pay $200 a month child support.
  • Shane Seyer, raped by a 17-year-old at age of 13, sued for child support, plus an additional $7,000.

Speaking of young boys being raped by women, this segues right into an interesting little dilemma. In the intentionally manipulated study performed by Koss, the one in which she magically decides 1 in 4 women will be raped in their lifetime, there is an interesting fact she discovered and simply decided not to share with the world. Her study concluded that over 95% of men will never commit a rape. All male-on-female rape is quite literally committed by less than 5% of the male population. That doesn’t help the feminist agenda though; it doesn’t assist the constant rhetoric that all men are potential rapists. You can’t have a feminist come out and proclaim to the world, “Yeah, apparently the overwhelming vast majority of men have no interest in and never will rape in their lifetimes, ever.”

It would completely denounce the Schrodinger’s Rapist ideological basis for rape culture! Can’t have that! What’s their solution to the fake problem? Dehumanize all men as being potentially evil, and “teach men not to rape.” The “Don’t Be That Guy” campaign comes to mind. If you do a search, you find articles such as “Teach men not to rape” on oh-so-many feminist and women’s websites. “Teach men not to rape” gets 685,000 hits on Google. Zerlina Maxwell has become very popular, being interviewed for publications and talk shows due to an article she wrote, “5 Ways We Can Teach Men Not to Rape.” No, you will not find the link to it here. I don’t provide links to diatribe like that.

You may ask, What does Schrodinger’s Rapist have to do with young boys? Quite a lot. Clinical, psychological, and data parsing studies have been done—quietly, off to the side, just out of frame—for many many years now. Do you know what they’ve found out? The majority of actual rapists were they themselves raped as children by women. Difficult pill to swallow, isn’t it? We as a society simply do not like to think of women as being pedophiles, child molesters, rapists of children. It almost offends the senses, doesn’t it? Too bad, the fact remains.

According to Barbara Kay in “Women are not always the ‘gentler sex’“:

Most rapists were subjected to some form of sexual abuse in childhood. A startling amount is perpetrated by females. Peer-reviewed studies conclude that between 60-80% of “rapists, sex offenders and sexually aggressive men” were sexually abused by a female.” In this same article she also states “According to a 2004 U.S. Department of Education mass study of university students, 57% of students reporting child sexual abuse cited a male offender, and 42% reported a female offender.

Referred to as the “re-enactment of victimization,” the link between children being abused and growing up to abuse others has been extensively researched. Two such works published for peer review were conducted as early as the 1970s: Lewis D., and Balla, D.: Delinquency and psychopathology. New York, Grune and Stratton, 1976, and Lewis, D., Shanok, S.S., Pincus, J.H., et al.: “Violent juvenile delinquents: Psychiatric, neurological, psychological and abuse factors.” J Child Psychiatry 18:307-319, 1979. This isn’t new information, it’s just rarely talked about.

So, you think the answer is to “teach men not to rape”? Since we know 95% of men will never rape, and we know that 60 to 80% of serial rapists were themselves raped as children by women, I have a much more effective suggestion. Instead of berating all men for what only 5% of the population do, how about we teach women not to rape children? That would decrease the 5% margin by at least half.

If a “rape culture” exists, it has been created by feminists and it’s against men and boys. Furthermore, that rape culture is protected by feminists who alter the definition of terms to exclude male rape victims. It is protected by feminists who alter studies to hide their own data showing the vast majority of men will never commit rape. It is protected by feminists who use those same altered studies to claim all men are potential rapists. It is protected by feminists who persist and perpetuate the myth that woman can do no wrong and men can do nothing but wrong. It is protected by feminists who lobby for reduced sentences for women, including female sex offenders. It is protected by feminists who lobby universities to change the rules so they can remove men’s right to say no.

The only “rape culture” in Western society is the one that discourages male victims from coming forward about the abuse they suffered. The only “rape culture” in Western society is the one that has intentionally and systematically closed down shelters for abused men. The only “rape culture” in Western society is the one that allows female perpetrators who are convicted to serve their sentences and rejoin society without registering as sex offenders. The only “rape culture” in Western society is the one in which children legally incapable of consenting are expected to pay child support to the perpetrators who raped them. The only “rape culture” in Western society is the one that attempts to “victim-blame” the abused based on biological responses beyond their control by reclassifying their having been raped as “made to penetrate.”

You want to see a “rape culture”?  THAT is a “rape culture.” It’s against men and boys, created and vehemently supported, encouraged, and protected by feminists.
