Moving the Goalposts: What Feminist ‘Rape Culture’ Discourse Is About

You probably have to read a lot of feminist theory (and I’ve been immersed in it for months) to understand that feminist rhetoric about a “campus rape epidemic” isn’t actually about rape.

    It’s so bad, even animals have been tainted by heteronormative patriarchy.

      Well, now that we’re on that topic, I have a true story to share.

      My little Suki absolutely loved sex and would howl for it when she went into heat (about twice a year). As she had been spayed, I figured there was little harm in it, so why not let her have her fun? One of her “boyfriends” was a little black tom, all of about 10 months old. He would actually come calling and want me to open the door to the patio so she could come out and play.
      One day a neighbour told me in a very disapproving way that I should keep a better eye on Suki because she was being “raped” by little Tom!!

      I still can’t believe she actually said that.

    It’s about human training. It’s about emasculation.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Pretty much.

  • Alain

    No idea who is in the photo here, but trust me she is in NO danger of being raped. I think even the Muslims would take a pass on this one.

    • UCSPanther

      That looks like Andrea Dworkin.

      • ntt1

        yep makes chanty binks look like a babe.

    • Canadian

      What could she know about rape?

      • Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned- and I’ll bet she got scorned like hell all the time.

        • ntt1

          nor only that but she appears to be equal to two women.

        • Canadian

          Maybe that`s her definition of rape.

        • plumpplumberbalding

          Yep, plug ugly, no chance in hell for a mate, corrosive jealousy and hatred. Smart enough to gain a following…..sound familiar?

      • ntt1

        she would be in more danger of a japanese research whaling crew.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Good one!

      • Barry Thornton

        She could be the perpetrator

        • Canadian

          That`s more like it!

    • Waffle

      At first I thought it was Mama Cass, but it’s actually the arch-feminist, Andrea Dworkin.

      • Alain

        That figures.

      • John

        On her Wiki page she looks like John Candy in drag

    • If you reverse the gender of the rhetoric spewed in feminist studies, it would be classified as hate speech.

      Why is this asinine tripe allowed on college campuses.

      What good does a degree in feminist studies do? What job is a feminist studies graduate qualified for? Would women be better served with a degree in math?

      Feminist studies is a financial black hole, intellectual cesspool, fostered on women by a bunch of unhappy women with too much time on their hands.

      • These women are psychologically in deep trouble, and they make it worse for themselves by their screwed-up feminist theorizing.

      • kkruger71

        Actually a degree in feminist studies can be quite lucrative at this point. I know one woman that has hers and is making a ton of money both as a therapist and as a consultant with several political agencies and private companies helping write their sexual harassment policies and offering workshops to teach the employees.
        As for what good does the degree do? Absolutely nothing.

      It’s Andrea Dworkin a noted feminist who died in 2005.

  • UCSPanther

    No wonder Dworkin died from a heart attack at 58…

  • Oh, poor Andrea, so much easier to be furious with men than to stop digging her own grave with her teeth. She didn’t just feel unloved and undesirable – she was the poster girl.
    Guess when you hate yourself and everyone around you, everything IS political.

  • Tom Forsythe

    According to feminists, 25% of Canadian women have been raped, and only one in ten reports it. Therefore, 250% of Canadian women have been raped.

  • If there is any justice in the universe, she has been for some time now, the first of 72 wives of Osama bin Laden.

  • I pity young people, male and female, who have to live, love and grow in such an atmosphere of distrust and hate.

  • Clausewitz

    One look at that lead photo should be enough to drive any rape fantasies out of just about anyone.

    • tom_billesley

      Instant cure for priapism.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Leslie West was awesome in Mountain, back in the day.

    • John

      I getcha! I hadn’t thought of that.
