I care about male victims. I don’t care about MRA/”equalist” asshats who don’t care that huge percentages of women experience sexual violence. That nearly all women have to accept the threat of sexual violence and harassment as part of daily life. I also think that their attempts to pretend coercion isn’t rape and to ignore patriarchy and how it operates to both men’s and women’s detriment harms rape victims of all genders.
These are the people who laugh at the term “rape culture.” They’re the people who make fun of the word “patriarchy” when these are the cultural norms that make it harder for people of all genders to report their rapes and make it easy for rapists to get off scott free. These same people refuse to acknowledge their own complicity in rape culture in patriarchy. Because they won’t analyze or look at patriarchy as a whole they don’t actually want to talk about the real reasons male rape victims have a hard to time reporting their rapes or talking about rape. They don’t want to criticize our notions of masculinity even though that’s largely to blame. They continue to solidify the norms in our culture that harm all rape victims and perpetuate rape culture.
These are the people who laugh at the notion—LAUGH at the notion—of teaching people not to rape and about proper consent. Despite the fact a study showed that when anti-rape posters were put up, rape decreased by 10% in that city. They act as if rape is just a fact of life. They pretend that we can’t change our culture or do anything different to prevent rape, except talk over feminists and deny the alarming epidemic of rape as it impacts women. And I’m the one hurting victims?
They only bring up male rape victims to discredit feminists. They don’t actually want to take any action or do any kind of analysis to actually help male victims. In fact, their ridicule of feminists and criticisms of rape culture and patriarchy—and their rape apologism and rape cultural rhetoric actively keeps the same system in place that makes it so hard for rape victims of all genders.
So go learn some 101 about feminism and rape culture before you fucking come in here and tell me who doesn’t care and whose making the situation worse
