Let me recap,
There was once a guy on the internet who once said “All feminist issues have been solved”.
This got me thinking about how little most people know about feminism, we don’t get taught feminism at school and if we do, from my experience it’s confusing and does not show it in a very good light (also teachers can be Dbags).
This list [of excuses to rape] can go on, this list of excuses make as much sense to me as if some one were to say
“hey see that girl over there? she sneezed at three minutes passed twelve….she’s totally asking for it bro” and you know what the strange thing is, if sneezing at three minutes past every hour was part of our norms this would most likely be an excuses to rape a women.
More from the same blog, this is a really good introduction to a lot of different angles on rape and one it might be worthwhile bookmarking if anyone (especially younger people, but it applies to everyone) asks why feminists care about rape (yes, people do ask that).
I wish that everyone of school age had the chance to read Andrea Dworkin, if this is the kind of radicalism that results. Andrea has been slurred and her books hidden, and patriarchy’s intense fear of this kind of consciousness-raising is exactly why.
