Feminist Rape Culture: Statutory Edition

http://youtu.be/PBNQPJ0UTCg

On this past thursday, march 27, Dr Janice Fiamego gave a talk at At Queens University in Toronto, Canada titled: What’s Equality Got To Do With it? Men’s Issues and Feminism’s Double Standards

During that talk she was heckled by feminists. Afterward the first person who spoke during the question and answer period was one Adele Mercier, feminist philosophy professor at Queens University.

Remember that name. Adele Mercier. She makes a reappearance later on in this story.

Here’s what she had to say at that lecture.

In a letter to the editor of Queen’s University Newspaper Andrew Howard says the following:

Men should seek to work within the existing framework of moderate feminist institutions in order to advance their cause.

In the comments section of that article, I posted my short list of statistics indicating that female sexual predation of men and boys was a significant issue and one that is completely ignored by all feminist rape “awareness” campaigns to date. Instead feminist “awareness” campaigns such as the Don’t Be that Guy campaign prefer to paint men and boys as more likely to be predators that victims.

Adele Mercier joined in by “rebutting” my statistics.

The exchange felt like scenes from a horror movie.

First it started out creepy. For a professor of philosophy, Adele certainly is incapable of framing a rational rebuttal on this issue.

Tension ramped. Adele certainly is invested in erasing and excusing female predators!

Then the horrifying climax.

Let me read the final rebuttal Adele offered to my statistics detailing the high rate of female sexual predation on men and boys.

This rebuttal is in response to the statistic I mentioned that approximately 90-95% of boys in juvenile detention facilities who are abused by staff report a female abuser.

Dear Alison,

I know that statistics can be hard to interpret, but you need to learn to read before you spread misinformation into the stratosphere.

You said: “95% of abused boys in juvenile facilities reported being attacked/coerced by female staff”. This is FALSE.

Re-read Google “Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2012”

“Sexual victimization” is there defined as ALL SEXUAL ACTIVITY with facility staff.

And the numbers are that, among males in juvenile facilities:

5.2% of MALE YOUTH engage in unauthorized sexual activity with MALE STAFF;

89.1% of MALE YOUTH engage in unauthorized sexual activity with FEMALE STAFF;

3% of MALE YOUTH engage in unauthorized sexual activity with both male and female staff.

This merely reflects THE PROPORTIONS OF GAY AND STRAIGHT MALES in juvenile detention centers, (and the fact that even people in detention centers like to have sex.)

Also noteworthy:

“As a result of the high rate of staff sexual misconduct reported in the NSYC-1 (10.3%), new items were added to the NSYC-2 questionnaire to better understand the circumstances surrounding incidents. Youth were asked a series of questions related to their relationship with the facility staff prior to sexual contact. Among victims of staff
sexual misconduct:

Nearly two-thirds said that staff told them about their personal life outside of work (69.1%), treated them like a favorite or better than other youth (63.6%), or gave them a special gift that the staff would not have given to most other youth (62.3%). Almost half (49.2%) said the staff member gave them pictures or wrote them letters. Nearly a third (29.8%) said that the staff member contacted them in other ways when the staff member was not at the facility. More than a third (36.7%) said youth gave the staff member pictures of themselves, and more than a quarter (28.1%) said youth gave the staff member a special gift.

When youth were asked who initiated the sexual contact, 36.4% said that the facility staff always made the first move, 17.4% reported that the youth always made the first move, and 46.3% said that sometimes the facility staff made the first move and sometimes the youth did.

Youth were also asked to describe the sexual relationship with staff. Nearly half (46.3%) said the incident was usually just sexual. An estimated 40.1% said the sexual contact was
more like friends with benefits, and 13.6% said that they really cared about each other.

Among the 840 youth who experienced staff sexual misconduct WITHOUT FORCE, 5.1% reported the involvement of a male staff member (2.7% involved male staff only and 2.4% involved both male and female staff).

So the 95% that you cite is of MALE YOUTH who experience sexual misconduct involving FEMALE STAFF WITHOUT FORCE.

Hey, giving these boys a piece of candy should make it all better!

After all boys in a detention facility can give legitimate consent to their adult female captors.

I’ll remind you that Adele—if it is Professor Adele Mercier—wrote this rape apologia on an article arguing that men and boys can only legitimately talk about their issues in a feminist context.

The problem with asserting that men and boys can only talk about their issues in a feminist context should be starkly obvious by now.

Feminists are incapable of recognizing the victimization of men and boys in an honest way. Feminists are more invested in explaining away that victimization then they are in bringing awareness to it and funding services to address it.

And when I say feminists are incapable of recognizing the victimization of men and boys in an honest way, I mean men and boys full stop. The problems of men and boys full stop.

A woman saying that sexually abused boys in cages can give legitimate consent to their attackers is more welcome in feminism than a woman saying they are abuse victims. And that’s the fucking problem.

Feminism fails to produce an immune response to people like Adele Mercier. I guarantee she will experience no fallout, no censure and no disciplinary action for assertion that boys can give legitimate consent to the adult females in detention centres who have complete control over every aspect of their lives.

Can you imagine what would happen if Adele was Adam Mercier, professor of philosophy at Queens University. And Professor Adam Mercier publicly said that underage girls can give meaningful convent to their adult male teachers.

What do you think would happen to Adam Mercier for even suggesting that? He would lose his job at a bare minimum. All across Canada feminist protesters would erupt into “lolita” walks protesting his victim blaming. And we’d have even more “Don’t be that guy” campaigns to combat the epidemic of “rape culture.”

But because it wasn’t Adam Mercier, it was Adele Mercier, and because it wasn’t blaming underage girls for being sexually abused by men, it was blaming underage boys for being sexually abused by women, nothing will happen.

And that, friends, is exactly what Dr. Janice Fiamengo is talking about when she says “feminist double standards.”

Feminism fails to produce an immune response to Mercier—hell our institutions of learning and our government fail to produce an immune response to Adele Merceier—and all the people like her because feminism does not care about men and boys. And our government doesn’t care about men and boys. And our institutions of learning don’t care about men and boys.

Feminists want to control the discussion on issues faced by men and boys simply so they can strangle it to death in its crib.

Oh no, Adele won’t receive any sort of official reprisal, not from feminism or from her academic institution.

In fact I have a proposal for the Canadian Government. Instead of disciplining Adele for her rape apologia, she should be rewarded!

Currently the Canadian Government is giving the White Ribbon Campaign—a feminist or feminist friendly organization—600K to go into schools and tell boys to take responsibility for violence against women and girls.

600K to tell boys that they are the problem when it comes to violence! 600K that could have gone to mental health services to address the abuse that’s at the root of violent behaviour but that would be admitting that boys can be victims. And we can’t have that!

But why stop with making boys responsible for violence against women. Since Adele Mercier has demonstrated such a keen grasp of how to avoid recognizing boys are victims, perhaps the White Ribbon Campaign could partner with her and have go into schools and teach your son how he’s responsible for “misconduct” when he’s statutorily raped by his female teachers.

Seems like something the government of Canada could really get behind! And Adele certainly has a lot to say on the subject!

It’s Shit Like this: Feminist Professor Mercier, did you argue that child sexual abuse isn’t real?

In a letter to the editor dated March 31, published in the Queens University Paper, Andrew Howard argues that men should not create their own spaces to address their issues outside of feminist oversight, I replied with an extensive list of statistics that feminists choose to ignore when creating their campaigns that present men as more likely to be rapists than rape victims.

One of those statistics was this:

95% of abused boys in juvenile facilities reported being attacked/coerced by female staff.

Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2012

Adèle Mercier, Associate Professor. B.A., M.A. at Queens Univeristy(or someone posing as her), offers the following rebuttal to my presentation of that statistic.

Dear Alison,

I know that statistics can be hard to interpret, but you need to learn to read before you spread misinformation into the stratosphere.

You said: “95% of abused boys in juvenile facilities reported being attacked/coerced by female staff”. This is FALSE.

So the 95% that you cite is of MALE YOUTH who experience sexual misconduct involving FEMALE STAFF WITHOUT FORCE.

Of course ~90% of sexually abused boys in juvenile facilities reported a female attacker who used force. That means female staff physically attacked 90% of the boys abused by staff in juvenile detention facilities.

However I just want to highlight the fact that Professor Mercier’s–a feminist’s–defence of the female predators abusing underage boys in juvenile seems to comprise of the following rationale:

“He wanted it.” “He seduced her.” “He touched her first.”

Where have we heard these excuses before?

And all this on an article that argues feminists should have control over the discourse over men’s issues. Control over how these boys talk about their abuse when they grow up.

Well, according to one prominent feminist at Queens, it’s not really abuse at all!

(If Adèle Mercier is being impersonated, we invite her to contact us and we will issue a retraction.)

Honey Badger Radio: Sexual Assault In the Military

Having sniffed out yet another opportunity to shove shame down men’s throats till they choke, feminists are setting their sights on ending rape in the military.

As we all know feminists will handle this new experiment to remove rape from war—while keeping the killing—with their usual fairness and balance.

It’s a match made in heaven. The military can supply the lab rats—I mean captive audience—and the feminists can supply the emotional abuse.

Join the Honey Badgers as we discuss sexual assault in the military.

Honey Badger Radio: Mary Koss and the American Rape Machine

Mary Koss is the feminist researcher behind the factoid that one in four women will be raped in her lifetime. In Mary Koss’s original survey only one in sixteen women said “yes” to “have you been raped?”

​So how did she get her one in four number?

By asking women “have you ever been physically forced to have sex or have had sex under the influence of drugs or alcohol” and disregarding if they said that they hadn’t been raped.

If you’re a woman and you don’t think you’re raped, you don’t get to decide that, Mary Koss does.And if you’re a man and you think you were raped, well… Mary Koss has news for you!

Mens’ Rights vs Feminist Rape Culture Explained Using Puzzle Pieces

This is Jill.

jill copy

This is Jack.

jack copy

This is rape.

rape copy

This is not rape.

madetopenetrate copy

When a man physically forces Jill to have sex we consider it rape.

But when Jill physically forces Jack to have sex, we don’t consider it rape.

We think that Jack’s sexuality negatively affects Jill in a way that Jill’s does not negatively affect’s Jack’s.

Mary Koss agrees.

Mary Koss is the feminist researcher behind the factoid that one in four women will be raped in her lifetime.

In Mary Koss’s original survey only one in sixteen women said “yes” to “have you been raped?”

So how did she get her one in four number?

By asking women “have you ever been physically forced to have sex or have had sex under the influence of drugs or alcohol”

Disregarding the women’s answers to “have you been raped” Mary Koss went on to publish her findings and 1 in 4 became an oft repeated feminist talking point.

Unfortunately Mary Koss encountered an additional problem. When women and men are asked if they were raped, the number of male victims is low. But when women and men are asked if they were “physically forced to have sex”, the number of male victims skyrockets.

On her efforts to correct to correct the problem of too many men saying “yes” to “have you been physically forced to have sex” Mary Koss says:

 We worked diligently to develop item wording that captured men’s sense of pressure to have sex and draw their responses into an appropriate category of coercion instead of rape.

Based on Mary Koss’s advice the Center of Disease control decided to separate “physically forced sex” into two categories in their nation wide US study of sexual and domestic violence:

This is rape.

rape copy

This is made to penetrate.

madetopenetrate copy

They then went on to publicize their findings on rape while excluding the majority of male victims of physically forced sex.

When we reclassify “made to penetrate” as rape we see the problem that Mary Koss and the CDC were facing.

They had found that men and women report equal levels of victimization in the past year.

Jack is equally likely to experience physically forced sex as Jill in the last twelve months.

However the CDC found that only 20% of the victims who reported being physically forced into sex in their lifetime were male.

Why is this?

When witnessing two criminals, one female and one male, who are both equally violent, witnesses “misremember” the violence of the female over time. The force she uses is remembered as being less relative to the male. The witnesses’ perception of her agency is whittled away.

The same process is happening with male rape victims. Over time they are bringing their memories in line with the dominant narrative shared by Mary Koss, the CDC, and likely you.

This is rape.

rape copy

This is not rape.

madetopenetrate copy

So when you ask  “did someone physically force you to have sex with them in the last year” equal numbers of men and women respond yes.

When you ask “did someone physically force you to have sex with them in the last five years”, the percentage of male victims drops from 50% to 30%.

And when you ask “did someone physically force you to have sex with them in your lifetime”, the percentage of male victims drops again to 20%.

Over time male victims are “misremembering” the violence used against them by female rapists.

Feminists will often assert that 90% of rape victims are female and 99% of rapists are male.

Considering that this is universally seen as rape.

rape copy

And this is not commonly seen as rape.

madetopenetrate copy

It makes sense that the majority of male victims and the majority of female sexual aggressors are excluded from statistics regarding rape… But what’s really remarkable is that as much as ten percent of male rape victims remain to be counted. And that despite being categorically excluded women count for even one percent of rapists.

Feminists are creating a false perception of female victimhood. They are creating a culture of fear targeted at women. They are maintaining the idea that men act and women are acted upon.

That this:

rape copy

is fundamentally different from this:

madetopenetrate copy

Wouldn’t it be better if we stopped playing games with people’s lives and recognized that this:

madetopenetrate copy

is not fundamentally different than this:

rape copy

And that all victims of sexual violence–including Jack–deserve equal compassion.

Baring psycho feminist attack, she may be able to call in later on to give us an update on how everything went at the now infamous Ryerson U—home of fire alarm pulling, human blockading, “would you shut the fuck up” feminist rabble rousers.

Their domestic terrorist foremothers, the Suffragettes, would be so proud!

In honour of open communication we’re hosting open lines this week on honey badger radio. Open lines means you can call in and talk about any topic you so desire.

So call in and take the show where you want it to go.

Honey Badger Radio: Feminism Objectifies Laci Green

Laci Green is a youtube feminist. She recently told us all about objectification.

In simple terms objectification is about how male sexual urges hurt women. When men feel desire for women they have to be carefully policed least they remove women’s humanity with their thoughts.

Of course this requires believing that men victimize women with their illuminati voodoo eye balls. Or maybe they’re space reptiles with thought controlling mind rays.

But most importantly it requires believing that women’s sexual desires are passive, while men’s are active and villainous. It requires believing women are sexual objects defined by how they are acted upon by men.

Join us tonight on Honey Badger Radio as we discus “Feminism objectifies Laci Green.”

Honey Badger Radio: Erotica for me, shame on thee

Show Link

 

Slut shaming is a bad thing. At least when it’s directed at women. I mean, when it’s directed against individual women.

But slut shaming seems to be perfectly valid when directed against an entire sex. I’m referring, of course, to the fact that we see men as sluts. All of them. We see their sexuality as damaging, degrading and degraded.

And, of course, like all sluts men are always asking for it.

Join us at Honey Badger Radio as we discuss the double standard in which women’s sexuality is seen as… well… less nasty than male.

Sources for “Men’s Rights Versus Feminism”


The psychological phenomenon in which we divide people into “actors” and “acted upon” is called “moral typecasting”.

We tend to judge male characters by their actions; female characters by their reactions.

Girls view their abilities as passive and unchanging.

We view equally violent female criminals as less violent over time.

An initiative to close down a woman’s prison due to our beliefs that female criminals are less violent.

‘Women and Children’ first indicates both gender-specific care for women and the association of women with vulnerability and weakness.

‘Benevolent sexism’ or ‘chivalry’ is the tendency for people to regard women as both weak and more moral than men.

When we focus on someone’s body–which is what feminists call “objectification”–we care more about their safety and have concern for their wellbeing.

Statistics:

Prison Rape:

Summary: Men are more likely to be raped in prison than women are in the general community.

Community Rape:

Summary: If you control for memory errors by asking men and women about sexual violence in the last twelve months, you get parity in victimization in physically forced sex(aka. rape.)

The reason why some studies find 90%+ rates of male perpetration and female victimization is that they rely on statistics that aren’t even measuring the rate of rape in the general population, they’re statistics regarding _who feels empowered to report their rape to the police_. Using them to say anything about rape prevalence is a flat out lie.

Other statistics vary based on the time window they’re using. A twelve month time window finds parity in male and female rape victimization. A five month window finds that men have dropped to 30% of the victims from 50% and a lifetime window sees an even greater drop to 20% of the victims. All because men make their memories conform with the social narrative that female-on-male sexual violence doesn’t exist over time.

According to the CDC’s 12-month statistics (Table 2.0 and 2.1) on sexual violence(the most accurate statistic on prevalence, 50% of the rape victims were male. According to the CDC’s lifetime statistics(the most accurate statistic regarding who is raping who) on who is perpetuating sexual violence, 80% of the men were raped by women.

The studies on relationship sexual violence using the CST or CST2 methodologies find parity between men and women in terms of being forced into sex by the opposite gender.

Here’s a recent world wide survey that found that 3% of men reported forced sex in their heterosexual relationships and 2.3% of women reported forced sex in their heterosexual relationships.

Also recent results on sexual exploitation in corectional facility finds extremely high rates of female on male abuse.

“Approximately 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual misconduct said they had been victimized by female staff. In 2008, 42% of staff in state juvenile facilities were female.”

From “Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2008-09″

“Most victims of staff sexual misconduct were males; most perpetrators were females. Among male victims of staff sexual misconduct, 69% of those in prison and 64% of those in jails reported sexual activity with female staff. An additional 16% of prison inmates and 18% of jail inmates reported sexual activity with both female and male staff.”

From “Sexual Victimization in Prisons and Jails Reported by Inmates, 2008-09″

Here’s something from a survey of homeless youths:

“Males were just as likely to be sexually exploited as females. Among younger street-involved youth (ages 12-18), a greater percentage of males were exploited (34% vs. 27% of females in 2006). Among older street-involved youth (ages 19-25), a higher percentage of females reported sexual exploitation (53% females vs. 32% males).”

“Although the majority of youth (70%) had been exploited by males, half of youth (50%) had also been exploited by females.”

From “It’s Not What You Think: Sexually Exploited Youth in British Columbia”

Domestic Violence:

Summary: 50% of violent relationships are characterized by mutual violence, more often initiated and sustained by the woman as she is the one who hits first and more frequently. In the 50% of relationships that are characterized by unilateral violence, 70% is a woman beating a man.

Fiebert Bibliography:  This bibliography examines 286 scholarly investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.  The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 371,600.

The main feminist criticisms of this bibliography are that the CST and CST-2 survey instruments used don’t “contextualize” violence. Proponents of women’s victimhood believe that when violence is “contextualized” we’ll find that women act defensively and that men are the real aggressors.

Murray Strauss responds to the criticisms of the CST and CST-2 here.

Two recent surveys, the 2007 Harvard survey and the CDC’s 2010 NISPSVS suggest otherwise.The Harvard survey found that 50% of couples were mutually violent. In these couples women hit first and more often. it also found that in 70% of unilaterally violent couples, it was the wife who was the violent partner.The CDC’s 2010 NIPSVS found that men are more likely to experience controlling and coercive abuse than men. In the last twelve months(again 12 months is the most accurate window to control for memory errors) 15.2% of men and 10.7% of women said they were victims of “coercive control.” (Tables 4.9 and 4.10)

Finally DV researchers cite the rate of spousal homicide as “evidence” that women are greater victims. However the rate was at near parity in the 1970s—men and women were almost equally likely to kill each other. Since then the rate at which women have been killed by their male partners has declined 7% while the rate that men have been killed by their partners has declined 40% in the same time period. Feminists have managed to cast an improvement in the situation for murdered men over the last forty years as evidence of women’s greater victimhood!

Men Serve More time for the same crime:

“This paper assesses gender disparities in federal criminal cases. It finds large gender gaps favoring women throughout the sentence length distribution (averaging over 60%), conditional on arrest offense, criminal history, and other pre-charge observables. Female arrestees are also significantly likelier to avoid charges and convictions entirely, and twice as likely to avoid incarceration if convicted. Prior studies have reported much smaller sentence gaps because they have ignored the role of charging, plea-bargaining, and sentencing fact-finding in producing sentences. Most studies control for endogenous severity measures that result from these earlier discretionary processes and use samples that have been winnowed by them. I avoid these problems by using a linked dataset tracing cases from arrest through sentencing. Using decomposition methods, I show that most sentence disparity arises from decisions at the earlier stages, and use the rich data to investigate causal theories for these gender gaps.”

Male versus female Suicide Rates.

Male versus female deaths on the Job.
