RAINN has officially dismantled feminist rape culture hysteria. You people have no ground to stand on anymore. Your bullshit is over.
My issue is not in the argument but in the interpretation. It assumes that culture does not encourage and or discourage people and or events to take place.
While I believe that rapists are the individuals at fault, I feel it impossible to argue that systematic environmental issues (such as the acceptance of silence as consent and the idea that a woman must be fully clothed at all times) are not contributing to this pandemic.
If you read the entire piece, it moreover says that rape culture is a factor. Yet, the blame should be solely on the rapist. No one is saying it shouldn’t. An individual is committing a crime.
However, it’s foolish to interpret this as a dismissal of culture. That would be the very equivalent of saying the sale of guns in society has no impression on gun violence. One pushes the other. While the person who shoots is inevitably at fault, there is something to be said about where they got the gun to begin with.
Its like you people can’t even fucking read.
“If you read the entire piece, it moreover says that rape culture is a factor.”
Well, I did read the entire paper a couple times over and didn’t find anything supporting that culture was a factor. In fact, culture is only mentioned four times and three of those times was dismissing culture as a factor. The fourth was a quote by a faculty member.
Your stupid hysteria bullshit ends here. It is over. You no longer get to trivialize the vicious sexual assault of men and women to validate your victim complex.
So, only criticize men. Even if women deserve criticism, do not criticize them. Only men. link
This is a real article, people!
You have got to be kidding me… I have not read the whole article yet, but will attempt to after my shower.
This little blurb though… Seriously? Don’t criticize a woman just because she is a woman? I know I am personally very defensive and protective of women, but I do not believe in the slightest that they should be immune from all kinds of criticism. They are people and are still subject to being criticized for their views and stuff.

Is this about Zoe Quinn? Y’know…I’m getting REALLY sick of people defending what she did. I don’t even care that she cheated - that shit is personal. I care that she used sex as a tool just to progress herself at the expense of others. Of course the first thing I found when I searched her name were countless articles defending her, one even saying they wished more people did this - that MORE people took the most selfish and destructive means to accomplishing what THEY want at the expense of the emotions of others.
But no. You don’t want PEOPLE to be more like Quinn - you want women too. But here’s the thing. If we saturate the market with female devs who got there through scandal and cheating and lying, and leave behind the female devs who are decent fucking human beings, then that is how we get, well, the current market ruled by “free to play” and companies who often don’t give a shit about you (I’m looking at you EA). Selfishness is the PROBLEM not the fucking solution.
But onto the main point, DON’T PERPETUATE THIS IDEA THAT YOU CAN’T CRITICIZE WOMEN. FUCK. THAT. Seriously, for all this harping about “damsels in distress” and how women can do anything, there sure are a lot of feminists who get really angry if you’re critical of a woman. Not of woman in general. Not of feminism. Of a person and their personal actions. And that’s fucking bullshit. Just for kicks I found the article this is from in which he claims “Well none of this is proven, and it’s just an angry ex, and blah blah blah”. The article itself even recognizes that many of the people angry at Quinn supported huge projects to promote women in the gaming industry - and yet still goes on to defend Quinn saying “Well it’s only ALLEGED that she tried to sabotage their project”. And it makes you wonder how much of a resume of horrible shit a person has to produce before you stop saying “alleged” and start thinking that maybe, just MAYBE she is an actual horrible person and realize that yes, WOMEN ARE FULLY CAPABLE OF BEING HORRIBLE PEOPLE. If criticizing women like Quinn are going to “drive women away from gaming” then clearly we as women do have a long way to go, but personally I think we have tougher skin than that, and more importantly, most women aren’t going to do the shit Quinn does. You can’t compare her to female devs that got there the honest way.

The real life version of this lol
The only guy I ever met who wore a fedora, it was my democratic theory class my freshman year of college. Before class, he started screaming in my face that he loves Obamacare, and how Obamacare saved his mom’s life. Keep in mind, this was 2010, and Obamacare was not enacted yet. He was so loud, a professor and the TA had to pull him away from me because he went to punch me. Then everyone asked if I was okay.
"This dog just appeared out of nowhere and followed us for an entire week during our trekking trip in the Himalayan outback…When I decided to get up at 4 a.m. to climb the next 5000 m peak…he accompanied me as well. On the top he was sitting for the entire 30 minutes on this place"
I actually can’t cope with this
