Why are radfems so obsessed with rape?

femonade

i have been watching with interest an ongoing discussion (on tumblr!!) about rape, and what it is and isnt.  tumblr isnt my natural habitat, and im not interested in even trying to figure it out at this juncture, although if someone can show me how tumblr *isnt* primarily a huge gynergy-sucking waste of time (and not coincidentally, another way for privileged males to look busy at work while not actually doing anything) im all ears.  srsly, i h8 tumblr!  h8 it!

anyhoo, im trying to get my head around all the issues being raised here — despite this conversation essentially being a thought-terminating mindfuck (thanks tumblr!  thanks men and trans and MRAs and pomos and hopeless reformists and baby feminists talking primarily out of their asses in short-form dialog in a nonradical mixed space). jeebus i hate tumblr so much.  srsly, is it just me?

earlier, i proposed my own…

    My 2 cents for what its worth. Anyone, whether male or female is capable of rape or is capable of being raped. Rape is a sex act carried out on a non-consenting person, simple enough definition I think you’ll agree. The argument I think, seems to come from the argument of consent. Consent is give when all parties say “yes” to sex. Consent is not given, when any party says “no”. Consent is also not given is one party is unable to give consent, ie passed out, or legally below the age of consent for the country they are in. In the UK, the age of consent is 16. If one party is over that age, and the other isn’t, that’s considered “statutory rape” (I’m putting these terms in quotes to group them together to prevent any possible missunderstanding). Now for arguments sake, say there is only 2 days difference in the ages of the 2 people, that’s still considered “statutory rape”, but the chances of it being prosecuted are slim. This attitude by the legal agencies seems to concentrate more on the age gap of upto 5 years, regardless of the letter of the law, and most think that to be sensible. However, for the purposes of defining rape here, I’m going to concentrate on the non-consent aspect, and that is simple. Rape is rape. Rape is rape when one of the people involved says no, or is incapable of saying yes, at any point in the proceedings.

    Please not that I have steered clear of using sex pronouns here as much as possible, as ANYONE can be the ATTACKER, and ANYONE, can be the VICTIM. How it happens, and how it is dealt with by the people involved and the legal authorities varies from country to country and case by case.

    Let me be clear in stating that rape is a terrible crime. There is no such thing as “legitimate rape”, whoever came up with such a stupid phrase needs their head examining.

    Rape is the consequence of weakness. Victims lack moral courage, morTal courage, and quite honestly the right to be left alone. Learn to defend yourself, get a concealed carry permit and PRACTICE shooting. I have lost all compassion for the Cult of Victimhood. Were I confronted with a potential rapist, I would kill him. THEN I would rob him. Why not?

      I disagree. Rape is never the victims fault, and not everyone can legally or otherwise carry weapons ( the world isn’t the USA ). I think this “rape culture” idea the radfems spout is bullshit too though. No one can ever justify rape, no one ever says “oh well they deserved it, look how they dressed for one”, no means NO in any language.

    That was not quite for your consumption; I’m juxtaposing Libertarianism against feminist rape culture. Put another way, it is psyops for the madfems who doubtless scan your site. Remember, this is war, and all is fair.
