STAMP: Rape and Men by CosmicQueenie STAMP: Rape and Men by CosmicQueenie
"Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable as cannibalism."

Quote from here.

Inb4 you go onto say "MEN GET RAPED TOO!!!" and "NOT ALL MEN ARE RAPISTS." or "WOMEN CAN RAPE TOO", and so on, yes I know that already. Shut up.

Statistically, there ARE more male-on-female rapes out there. No, I'm NOT saying that female-on-male rape doesn't exist. All I'm saying is that the statistics are lower than male-on-female rape.

This stamp goes for everyone, not just young men.

To me, it's wrong to dictate what women wear. Especially when things such as rape are involved.

"She shouldn't have been wearing such slutty clothes!!"
... This is your excuse? Her clothes provoked you? I should fucking punch you in the face because your stupidity provokes me. In the middle east, women are raped all the time. And you know what happens afterwards? She get's punished. Not him.

It doesn't matter what she wears. It could be overalls to a bikini. In the long run, it's YOU who has to control your urges. It's YOU who needs to keep it in your pants.

Would you blame a man who got mugged for his own assault? No, you wouldn't, because that's a stupid, not to mention, CRUEL thing to do.

"Oh you got robbed even though your house was locked up? WELL IT'S YOUR FAULT FOR HAVING NICE STUFF YOU FUCKING SLUT!"

I should probably stop now because I'll go on forever about this fucked up subject.

There are several things that are taught to people not to do, yet they still do it. For example, bullying, murder, robbery, drugs/drug addiction, drinking and driving, trusting random strangers, etc.

And yet people still do it. Why would this be any different with rape?

But, if we DIDN'T teach that they were wrong, the number of infractions would undoubtedly rise in numbers. 

Technically, right now we don't teach rape or rape-like behavior is wrong. In my health class, we never once had a discussion about boundary setting, permission, gray areas, etc. 

If we did, the numbers would undoubtedly go down. 

Right now, that vacuum is filled by popular culture, which puts pressure on young men to get laid as often as and however possible.

But we do, so..

So your health class is the only health class on Earth? No? Then what's your point?

I really doubt that.

With the popular culture, women are in there as well, and usually, they have the exact same mindset and usually get laid with every popular dude in their school.

We do, and that's good. Because the hypothetical situation posits that we would be worse off if we didn't. 

Is mine the only one? What kind of question is that? I just see the activists say we need better discussion and education, and they're the ones that know the larger picture. My personal experience just happens to mesh with that. 

Okay, you don't think the numbers will go down. But tell me, what's the harm in trying? If there's even a 10% chance that it would keep ONE person from being violated, it's more than worth a little mental effort on our collective part. 9_9

With culture, women are in a no-win situation. If they have sex, they are seen as sluts, if they don't, they are seen as prudes. Guys are almost always slapped on the back for "scoring," women, not so much. I'm talking about societal reactions to actions, not the actions themselves.

all the stupid comments on here-

anti-misogyny  ≠ pro-misandery,

people, if you really cared that much about men getting raped then instead of complaing about it you would DO something- there are guys out there suffering because you were trying to prove sexism where is wasn't and women suffering because you cant support both genders,

and If you cared about equal rights and hated sexism so much they you would focus equally on both genders rather than just men:| (Blank Stare) 

too much stupid- I need caffeine right now=P (Razz)

Not my fault that 99% of rapists end up male.
