Have we abandoned all sense?

This post inspired by this post by the amaz­ing, the fab­u­lous, the hand­some Smitty, inspired by this post by Skippy Stalin. It appears that some earnest, well-​meaning young woman wrote a sign that made its way around the inter­webs, read­ing, “I need fem­i­nism because my uni­ver­sity teaches ‘How to avoid get­ting raped’ instead of ‘Don’t rape’ at fresh­man orientation.”

A quick logic les­son: would this young lady also approve of “I need Ran­di­an­ism because my uni­ver­sity teaches ‘Lock your dorm room doors’ instead of ‘Respect the pri­vate prop­erty of oth­ers’ at fresh­man ori­en­ta­tion”? (If so, that’s cool by me — let me be clear.)

Mov­ing right along, let’s talk about what big, bad, scary con­ser­v­a­tives have to say about rape. In 2008, the Supreme Court decided the case of Kennedy v. Louisiana, hold­ing that the state can­not exe­cute a man for rap­ing a child so vio­lently that her vagina detached from her cervix and her rec­tum pro­truded into her vagina. ‘Fem­i­nist’ jurists voted that the sub-​human walk­ing filth could not be exe­cuted for his crimes, while Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and other right-​wing whack­adoo­dles believe that the Con­sti­tu­tion per­mits us to exe­cute such sub-​human filth. Not the great­est record for ‘fem­i­nism’ and rape.

Since I’m a lawyer, I can’t help but think of other Supreme Court jurispru­dence that is not exactly help­ful in pre­vent­ing rape or get­ting the mes­sage through to men that rape has con­se­quences. There are the famous gun-​rights cases, Heller and Mac­Don­ald v. Chicago, wherein the con­ser­v­a­tive fac­tion held that guns — which make small women able to beat up their would-​be rapists — can­not be banned whole­sale by the gov­ern­ment. The lib­er­als, who dis­tort the Equal Pro­tec­tion clause to their ‘fem­i­nist’ ends, couldn’t find it within them­selves to say that women have a right to meet men with equal or greater force.

Just on that record alone, nor­mal peo­ple would con­clude that lib­er­als want women to be raped and don’t want to mete out pun­ish­ment to rapists.

This is a prob­lem when the rapists in ques­tion are drunk horny twenty-​something men on a col­lege cam­pus. They’ve spent their entire lives get­ting the mes­sage that sex is just fun, any­one who says that women get all emo­tional about sex are repres­sive patri­archs, and rape doesn’t carry con­se­quences like get­ting your gonads blasted off with a Sig Sauer.

Against that back­drop, what is there for a uni­ver­sity to do besides teach young women how to not get raped? If home­own­ers were never armed and door locks were deemed to be tools of the patri­archy, I would spend all my time teach­ing would-​be vic­tims how to not be vic­tims, too. But that hardly means that I would con­done robbery.

This post inspired by this post by the amazing, the fabulous, the handsome Smitty, inspired by this post by Skippy Stalin. It appears that some earnest, well-meaning young woman wrote a sign that made its way around the interwebs, reading, “I need feminism because my university teaches ‘How to avoid getting raped’ instead of ‘Don’t rape’ at freshman orientation.”

A quick logic lesson: would this young lady also approve of “I need Randianism because my university teaches ‘Lock your dorm room doors’ instead of ‘Respect the private property of others’ at freshman orientation”?  (If so, that’s cool by me – let me be clear.)

Moving right along, let’s talk about what big, bad, scary conservatives have to say about rape.  In 2008, the Supreme Court decided the case of Kennedy v. Louisiana, holding that the state cannot execute a man for raping a child so violently that her vagina detached from her cervix and her rectum protruded into her vagina. ‘Feminist’ jurists voted that the sub-human walking filth could not be executed for his crimes, while Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and other right-wing whackadoodles believe that the Constitution permits us to execute such sub-human filth. Not the greatest record for ‘feminism’ and rape.

Since I’m a lawyer, I can’t help but think of other Supreme Court jurisprudence that is not exactly helpful in preventing rape or getting the message through to men that rape has consequences.  There are the famous gun-rights cases, Heller and MacDonald v. Chicago, wherein the conservative faction held that guns – which make small women able to beat up their would-be rapists – cannot be banned wholesale by the government. The liberals, who distort the Equal Protection clause to their ‘feminist’ ends, couldn’t find it within themselves to say that women have a right to meet men with equal or greater force.

Just on that record alone, normal people would conclude that liberals want women to be raped and don’t want to mete out punishment to rapists.

This is a problem when the rapists in question are drunk horny twenty-something men on a college campus. They’ve spent their entire lives getting the message that sex is just fun, anyone who says that women get all emotional about sex are repressive patriarchs, and rape doesn’t carry consequences like getting your gonads blasted off with a Sig Sauer.

Against that backdrop, what is there for a university to do besides teach young women how to not get raped?  If homeowners were never armed and door locks were deemed to be tools of the patriarchy, I would spend all my time teaching would-be victims how to not be victims, too. But that hardly means that I would condone robbery.
