In my area, a female teacher was just caught having a (legally rape) sexual relationship with one of her male high school students.
The victim is in distress because he insists it was what he wanted.
All the dudes are laughing about this and saying…
DO YOU KNOW WHAT FEMINISM IS?
I have never in my entire life met a feminist (myself included) that thinks that women shouldn’t be equal under the law as men. Because that’s the point isn’t it? Feminism has become a movement of equality for all peoples.
Yes, the media portrayal of feminism would so this, as well as some people, but they are not true feminists.
PLEASE before you say stuff like that, think about what you are saying. Saying those things just perpetuates social norms that we need to break.
Along with the original stated topic about the boy being raped, let’s break awful social norms to create a better future for us all!
Oh look, it’s the "you don’t know what feminism is" and "I never seen it, so it doesn’t exist" excuse. Not like I haven’t seen almost every Tumblr feminist say this like a parrot. Do you know? Here, let me help you.
Men want protection against false rape allegations. They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.
Feminists fought against this, causing it to fail. Also see here, the London Feminist Network campaigning to defeat the proposal.
Men want an end to the justice system favoring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.
Feminists fought against this, arguing that no woman should be sent to jail, even women who had murdered multiple people.
Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.
Feminists fought against this by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feminists are doing it as well.
The feminist definition of domestic violence has skewed arrest and prosecution philosophies, resulting primarily in having only male batterers criminally pursued.
Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape. In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, women cannot be punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.
Feminists fought against this in India, arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”
Feminists fought against this in Israel, claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.
So op is basically saying that because underage boys don’t understand how statutory rape is a problem, that this therefore justifies lax sentences received by female rapists? That’s real smart. Let’s all blame social problem on what teenagers have to say about them!
