Woman: Can I have birth control?
Woman: I got pregnant because I didn’t have birth control and I don’t want the fetus. Can I have an abortion?
Woman: I gave birth to my child but since I wasn’t expecting it, I can’t afford daycare. Can I have help paying for it?
I know this has nothing to do with abortion or fetuses or anything, but this is what sexism and rape apology looks like:
(Warning: it’s pretty bad.)
Unpopular Opinion? I think this is accurate.
Don’t get me wrong, rape is a detestable thing.
But this is not rape. This woman goes into the bar with short shorts, gets drunk and starts flirting with men. When you flirt with someone, and then have sex, that is not rape. That is consensual sex.
THANK YOU. Look, rape is atrocious and wrong, always, and this isn’t funny, or some kind of laughing matter. It is, however, extremely accurate. Consensual sex which a girl (or guy) later regrets IS. NOT. RAPE. If you can’t hold your alcohol, and as such, are worried about what might happen while you’re drunk, don’t drink! Or maybe you just don’t want to be hit on? How about dressing and acting in a way that shows the people around you you’re not a stupid whore, and to treat you accordingly?
These things are simple, yet 21st century western culture - and especially American culture - teaches women that they can do whatever they want, and the rules & consequences don’t apply to them. That’s not true, and it’s disgusting.
For example: “Slut shaming” is bad? Um, last time I checked, “slut” was a pejorative, not a badge of honor. Ladies, if you’re acting like a no-class slut, you should be ashamed. Should you run around calling girls sluts if they dress or act inappropriately? Of course not! But neither should you pat them on the back, hand them a Smirnoff, and tell them what they’re doing is ok, because it isn’t. Of course, that’s another unpopular view, but that doesn’t make it any less truthful.
Oh, and one more thing… “My rapist doesn’t know he’s a rapist”? Seriously? This girl is an idiot. I’m betting he “doesn’t know” because you “weren’t raped”.
tl;dr: This girl is full of shit. Feminism is a cancer. Actions have consequences.

Question: If you had a daughter and she was going to go out to a party with guys drinking would you let her go out looking like a slut?
Answer: If the next generation has sons that are as repulsed by rape as they should be then we won’t need to worry about our daughter’s clothing. Hell, if we just make our generation shift the blame from the victim to the perpetrator and recognize rape as an act of violence rather than a natural hazard then we won’t even notice clothing. In fact the only way that I’ll need to worry about my daughter’s clothing is if society stays this fucked. I’d probably end up doing something incredibly violent to somebody if anything ever happened to one of my loved ones and the system failed them.
So the question becomes: If you had a son and he was going out to a party with girls drinking, would you let him go knowing that one of them could be my daughter and if he ever touched her without her consent I’d kill you?
You focus on raising a son that you can confidently send to a party even if you think that you will die if he inappropriately touches a woman and I’ll focus on raising a daughter full stop.]
Ummm, no. The correct answer is “I love her, so of course I wouldn’t let my daughter leave the house dressed like a hooker.”
Telling girls they can go out dressed like sluts and expect zero repercussions is like telling a person to go right ahead and tie those t-bone steaks on their arms and legs, the Dobermans at the pound won’t even notice.
Is rape wrong? Sure it is, always. But stupidity and arrogance can make a problem worse. You don’t have to say “Oh, please, that would be lovely!” to ask for rape - all you need to do is roll the dice, dress & act like a stupid whore, and sooner or later, someone who doesn’t care that “it’s all just for fun” will find you, and if you’re assaulted, it will be partially your fault. Oh, and just because that might not be PC to say, or endear me to the feminists of the world, that doesn’t make it any less true.
Here’s the bottom line: There are always consequences, and the sooner we teach our children that fact, rather than teaching them that they’re somehow special, and that double-standards apply to them based on gender, the sooner rape will diminish.
Lots more under cut.
In Today’s “Bullshit Republicans Are Doing Instead of Anything That Would Help the Economy”: Jim DeMint Wants to Bar You From Discussing Abortion With Your Doctor Via Skype
Anti-choice Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) just filed an anti-choice amendment to a bill related to agriculture, transportation, housing, and other programs. The DeMint amendment could bar discussion of abortion over the Internet and through videoconferencing, even if a woman’s health is at risk and if this kind of communication with her doctor is her best option to receive care.
Under this amendment, women would need a separate, segregated Internet just for talking about abortion care with their doctors.
I want to emphasize that this is a rider to a completely unrelated bill. This fucking slimeball tried to sneak it in where nobody would notice it.
Stand up today: call your senators at 202-421-3121 and tell them to oppose the DeMint amendment (#768) to H.R.2112.
