Anonymous said: Yeah nobody is fucking denying that men not rape and murder! But those people are psychopathes who want to cause harm! They will never go away. So stop blaming every men for something some do. Just like you cannot blame every moslems for what some terrorist are doing. Easy like that

radfemale:

  • 9 of every 10 rape victims were female in 2003
  • 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime

by race; 

  • All women: 17.6%
  • White women: 17.7%
  • Black women: 18.8%
  • Asian Pacific Islander women: 6.8%
  • American Indian/Alaskan women: 34.1%
  • Mixed race women: 24.4%

men;

  • About 3% of American men — or 1 in 33 — have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime

as for the stereotypical ‘hiding in the bushes’ rapist;

  • 93% of juvenile sexual assault victims know their attacker

[source]

We can gather that NO, most rapists are not just ‘psychopaths’; they’re mostly people that we know. 97% of victims are women, with women of colour being most in danger. And this is data has been collected from a comparatively privileged region, which would inevitably be much higher in a lot of other places.

It’s also important to note that our society has a very ambiguous definition of rape. We have rapists who will ONLY admit to raping someone if you don’t use the word ‘rape’. So how the fuck do we know that people actually ‘despise’ rape if in fact their definition of what rape is, is completely wrong? A study was taken of 1882 college students who were asked:

1) Have you ever attempted unsuccessfully to have intercourse with an adult by force or threat of force?

2) Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone who did not want you to because they were too intoxicated to resist?

3) Have you ever had intercourse with someone by force or threat of force?

4) Have you ever had oral intercourse with someone by force or threat of force?

The Results? (which the 1882 surveyed were ethnically diverse, and included older students, up to the age of 71), 120 men admitted to raping either once or repeatedly, as long as you didn’t use the word ‘rape’. “Of the 120 rapists in the sample, 44 reported only one assault. The remaining 76 were repeat offenders. These 76 men, 63% of the rapists, committed 439 rapes or attempted rapes, an average of 5.8 each (median of 3, so there were some super-repeat offenders in this group). Just 4% of the men surveyed committed over 400 attempted or completed rapes.” [x]

Most of the time it’s rapists who take advantage of drunk girls, who are married and push boundaries their wives have stated previously, who are flirted with until she says ‘no’ and they rape her anyway because she ‘led him on’ (barfs), who emotionally manipulate her into a forced consent. Rape is not just the stereotypical depiction everyone agrees on. there are situations where men feel entitled to rape as long as we don’t use the word ‘rape’. Men don’t want to be SEEN as a rapist, they don’t want to be TAINTED with that label - but many men rape. it’s an epidemic. and you hate women if you dare to denounce that. to the point of even the astounding figures we have which point to this fact, many more that denied the accusation would come forward if we didn’t speak in blanket rule talk, and if we twisted the words to make them sound less like a predator.

seeing a woman awkwardly laughing when a guy says inappropriate, uncomfortable shit to her and invading her space is heart breaking and i always try to make eye contact with them to say ‘i know’

why is it the LGBT community? why can’t each facet of LGBT be respected individually? it’s kinda like ‘if you aren’t hetero then you’re in the leftover pile’. plus, it gets kind of messy trying to satisfy so many conflicting experiences and views in the LGBT community. we are all different, we aren’t the same just because we aren’t hetero. PLUS trans isn’t even a sexuality? was this even thought out? smh

trillvyaplath said: i've really been enjoying your povs on the porn industry and your criticism of kink culture. it's really made me analyze things for myself and i was wondering if you had any recommendations for further reading on those topics?

radfemale:

Thank you!

There are a lot of tumblrs out there that not only share their own opinions, but refer you off to studies/academic articles/books. Most anti-kink and anti-porn bloggers use credible sources. If you go into my kink shaming and porn tags, maybe go through what I’ve reblogged and by who and you’ll find some fantastic blogs. Also, a lot of the posts have sources that lead you elsewhere. For porn, go to Shelley Lubben’s website. She’s an ex porn star and speaks out against the porn industry. There’s a lot of criticism of her as a person (she’s racist), but I would go to the site more for the testimonials from over 200 OTHER porn stars. They share their stories and some of it is ultra devastating. 

Some GREAT blogs to follow that are ant-kink and/or anti-porn and always share awesome posts about the topics are:

redhester

lesbolution

bdsm-harms-women

fuckyeahkinkshaming

pornographicmeatnightmare

lesbipocalypse

vulvanity

xurria

girlisariot

girlbitesback

and whoever else wants to reblog to show they are too!
