As an addendum of sorts to that last piece, here is an interesting article by Duncan Idaho over at Eternal Bachelor. Hope he doesn't mind the callous thievery.
In fact, the idea of young women being raped is one thing guaranteed
to infuriate men and get them rolling up their sleeves and ready to hit
someone (note that I’m defining rape as forcibly having sex with a
someone without their consent, not the feminist definition of rape,
which is where a woman consents but regrets it the next day, or the
Andrea Dworkin definition of rape, which is any sex between a man and a
woman regardless of whether the latter consents or not.)
The outrage men feel about women getting
raped is utilized with great efficiency in propaganda. The
extreme-right-wing British National Party recently spread rumours around
that Asian gangs in Bradford were organizing gang-rapes of white women.
The KKK whipped whole communities into a lynch-happy frenzy by telling
horrifying tales of how black men prowled around raping white girls.
Anti-semitic groups in Russia have been uttering ominous claims that
Jewish gangs are supposedly abducting poor Russian girls to be taken to
work as sex-slaves in Israel, and the Iraqi insurgents try to bolster
anti-US sentiments by producing fake evidence of American GIs raping defenceless Iraqi girls.
All this is through the simple knowledge that – assuming they believe
them – men will be outraged by such tales. Claim that a certain ethnic
or religious group has a desire to rape women, and tell them that this
group is eying up “our women” then you will get men more liable to feel
hate towards that group.
In Birmingham a few months ago, the rumour of a 14-year-old black girl having been gang-raped by Asian men lead to rioting
between the black and Asian communities, resulting in two deaths and
dozens of injuries. Tensions had been simmering between the communities
for a while, but it exploded into violence just by the rumour of a rape
that almost certainly never happened.
Likewise, talk of the enemy raping “our women” works well in war.
This does have some basis in truth, as rape is often carried out by
victorious invaders, especially in the old days before War Crimes
tribunals came about. It is rape that is so frequently emphasized and
exaggerated in wartime propaganda more than any other atrocity.
The Japanese atrocities in Nanking during World War II included the
murder of over 300,000 civilians and the sexual assault of about 80,000
women, but it is largely the sexual assaults that are often concentrated
on in Chinese accounts of the atrocities (and indeed they gave the
whole terrible affair the name “The Rape Of Nanking“)
because the idea of Japanese soldiers raping women and girls ensures an
even greater amount of anti-Japanese sentiment can be whipped up than
“just” the idea of Japanese soldiers killing civilians.
Tell men the enemy are “raping our women” – or planning on doing so –
and whether that “our” is translated as female relatives or just women
of the same nationality or religion, and you will have most of the male
population grabbing swords or guns and marching off to risk their lives.
It works wonders.
It is very rare to find a man who genuinely thinks that tying women
up and screwing them against their will is okay, and such men are
naturally shunned if they make their beliefs known and imprisoned if
they act upon them (significantly, of course, rapists are the regarded
as the lowest-of-the-low in prison; even their fellow criminals do not
Yet on and on feminists rant and splutter about how all us men are
somehow in favour of rape. They insist we’re all evil
rapists-in-waiting, that there is an epidemic of rape in society, that
teenaged girls should even be wary of their own 11-year-old brothers
lest they want to ravish them with their evil willies, and furthermore
they try to give the impression that the supposedly small minority of us
men who don’t regularly beat up and rape women at least approve of such activities.
With the exception of hardcore lunatics like the thankfully-dead Andrea Dworkin, not even feminists really believe this. They know damn well
that the majority men are outraged by the idea of rape. They rely on
this fact to push through their anti-male laws (like VAWA in the US) and
to ensure plenty of tax-payer cash flows to misandrist feminist
organisations that help break up families. They know that exaggerating
claims of rape – by either coming up with absurdly loose definitions of
rape, such as a woman who regrets consensual sex a few days after the
event, or by just coming up with utterly fabricated statistics – will
infuriate male judges and politicians and get them to engage Chivalrous
Mode and start coming down hard on the supposedly rape-happy male
This is why you get organizations like Men Against Rape
(a rather loathsome name for a group because it implies that men who do
not join them must therefore be for rape.) These guys may mean well but
they’ve just been suckered into the propaganda of feminists and their
bullshit statistics. Their outrage against rape has been manipulated by
feminists so that they are as paranoid about the idea of an “epidemic of
rape” as feminists are.
Feminists know damn well that if they claim that there are tens of
thousands of unreported rapes on college campuses a year then, without
even bothering to ask for evidence, men will be extra-fearful for their
daughters and will join feminists in demanding women-only areas in
colleges. Feminists know that if they claim that it is very common for
men to spike drinks in bars and clubs with rape-drugs then you will have
men becoming intensely protective of their girlfriends to the point of
paranoia and will support the idea of taxpayer’s cash being poured into
feminist anti-rape organizations, creating more lucrative jobs for the
girls. Feminists know that if they make out that the majority of men who
are acquitted of rape are actually guilty and only walk out of court
free (and with wicked Patriarchal Oppressor grins on their faces)
because the law is stacked against victims, then you will get men –
furious at the idea of their sister or mother being raped and the rapist
getting away with it – happy to accept laws being pushed through that
shred men’s rights in rape cases and force men to prove their innocence
against a woman’s word, even though these same men may one day find
themselves the victims of such anti-male laws.
Most feminists don’t really think men are all rapists, but
they do know that we hate rapists, and so they claim the former to
utilize the latter, simply in order to make us hate ourselves as much as
they hate us.
