Well, burying your head in the sand won't make the issue go away.
Happily, there's a vast spectrum of options between "burying your head in the sand" and "wasting time humoring Gbaji's notions on rape"
Ignoring half the populations opinions on the subject as "mansplaining" doesn't seem to help either.
Fortunately, that's not an issue for me.
The issue affects men just as much as it affects women
Well, not remotely.
Whether or not a drunken fling is considered rape really does depend on how the woman feels after the fact. And any time the woman's actions are brought up is considered victim blaming, **** shaming, proof of rape culture, what ever phrases they want to use. You aren't going to stop drunk people from hooking up. And you can't just claim that any time drunk people have *** then the man committed rape and leave it at that, cause that doesn't solve anything.
That's one he
ll of a strawman. Whether or not a "drunken fling" is considered rape really depends on local law enforcement which traditionally hasn't been especially aggressive about investigating and prosecuting such cases because of the difficulties involved.
Yes, trying to deflect or reassign blame because the victim was drunk or dressed wrong or walking down the wrong street is going to be called out. Even if people get all pi
ssy and huffy and lead off with "Call me an MRA if you want but..." and then insist that they're not REALLY reassigning blame as they say "You have to accept the consequences" as though rape should be considered a legitimate consequence of having a couple drinks.
Also, I find the constant comparisons to walking down dark alleyways flashing your gold watch and diamond tiara a little unsettling, as though a woman's body is just another commodity or luxury consumer good. Edited, Sep 20th 2016 9:10am by Jophiel
