Feminists support Rape Culture

It's rather interesting to find many 'feminists' on Twitter breaking the same laws they create for others.

As an example, what is important to 'feminists' is bringing 'rape culture' to light:

This must be a very important concept in order for it to rank #1 on the list of things to educate the world about.

As to who might be supporting rape culture right now:

Bill Roache has been charged with rape. Yet it's not immediately clear how Roache has earned the term 'shitlord' or 'enforcer of rape culture' even if he is proven innocent. At first glance it seems Roache is an enforcer of rape culture because the man existed in the... errr... 'rapey' 1960s? One can provide comments below if one has more information...

Another person that wishes to educate us about 'rape culture' is Rebecca Watson:

Most recently brought it up with an online tiff with Joe Rogan: (the one where 'feminists' came out to say it's ok to hate kids)

What is rape culture?

From Wikipedia:

Rape culture is a concept which links rape and sexual violence to the culture of a society, and in which prevalent attitudes, norms, practices, and normalize, excuse, tolerate, or even condone rape.
Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, and trivializing rape. Rape culture has been used to model behavior within social groups, including prison systems where prison rape is common and conflict areas where war rape is used as psychological warfare. Entire countries have also been alleged to be rape cultures.
Although the concept of rape culture is used in feminist academia, there is disagreement over what defines a rape culture and to what degree a given society meets the criteria to be considered a rape culture.
Rape culture has been observed to correlate with other social factors and behaviors. Research identifies correlation between rape myths, victim blaming and trivialization of rape with increased incidence of racism, homophobia, ageism, classism, religious intolerance and other forms of discrimination.

What do Twitter 'feminists' mean when they say 'rape culture'?

Their criticism seems to circle around anything questioning female behavior - victim blaming is rightfully brought up as a huge problem.

That said, they don't even bother to scratch the surface of what cultural norms might support a 'rape culture'.

How could the insults we choose influence our culture?

Ponder about these insults for a little while:

It's an important question: Exactly how does one respond to a sexist, angry statement or "joke" made by males?

By reminding them they are only valued if they have put their penis in a vagina multiple times, of course!

Rest assured the Twitter 'feminists' are leading us to the feminist utopia.

Obviously it is not helping the cause to borrow insults from what may be the most misogynistic and homophobic aspects of male culture.

While reminding males of the importance of intercourse with females, these Twitter 'feminists' may as well throw in f-bombs like 'faggots' and 'fairies' just to hammer home the point.

Can we imagine a feminism that thinks these insults are worse for women than someone dropping the c-word?

Can we imagine a feminism that speaks of objectification and safe spaces that does not throw sexualized parties?

Please. Twitter 'Feminists'.

Do not be hypocritical jerks.

Thank you.


  1. "hypocritical jerk" is to Rebecca Watson as "hot" is to The Sun.

  2. Excellent over view of the hypocrisy of these people.

  3. Given how much flak active feminists get on the internet on a day-to-day basis I can forgive them for fucking up now and again and sinking to a lower level. It's hard to maintain a moral high ground when the guys on the lower levels have catapults and an endless supply of manure.

    I would however point out that "By reminding them they are only valued if they have put their penis in a vagina multiple times, of course!" they have effectively responded to the opposing mindset. If you're constantly devalued as a human on a daily basis by other people who generally share a gender in common, it makes an element of sense to denigrate your detractors using their self-same logic.

    1. Arguably the problem starts when you start treating your friends the same way you treat your enemies. And this particular ideology is renowned for just that. The flak has been building up over a thirty-year-or-more period precisely for this reason.

    2. Responding to hatred with more hatred doesn't end hatred.

    3. I'm not so sure. If we stopped protesting today and just knuckled under, the feminist hatred would not stop. It is not in any way based in reality, but in books containing lies. That's why Watson and her ilk are so rabid: they have read Dworkin, MacKinnon, Solanas, and people who have read them. Some may even have read Marx. And the pitiful "science" they have done hasn't been properly, critically peer-reviewed. As a result it is being increasingly falsified in recent times.

      I have an alternative adage: All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

    4. Lol, it's not about getting angry or not. It about getting angry that people support X and then responding by supporting X.

      " it makes an element of sense to denigrate your detractors using their self-same logic."
      They weren't being ironic to demonstrate the flaws of the so called self-same logic. They were just using it, hypocritically, as a tool to bludgeon people they didn't like.

  4. To utter the old adage, " two wrongs don't make a right". Discuss.........

  5. Congrats! This blog post was cited by Cathy Young.


  6. Ahahahahahahahahahaha!!! Oh, you were actually serious? Let me laugh even harder. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Feminism can't change anything.

  7. I know plenty of feminists who don't get flak on the Internet, because they don't linger on blogs and twitter all day insulting other people.

    Now there is some amount of abuse to be expected for anyone who speaks out publicly on social issues. For example, I have made artwork promoting equal rights for gays. I've gotten some shitty comments from random trolls. I ignore most of them.

    But people like Rebecca Watson don't just speak out for feminism. Most of the time I don't even recognize any meaningful type of feminism in what she blathers about on-line. She likes to poke at trolls, insult people, and attack other women and/or feminists. She probably gets some unfair criticism and insults, maybe even threats, and those aren't okay... but a lot of what she gets is just a predictable response to her being a total jackass on the Internet. If she spent as much time promoting some positive cause as she does calling people names on twitter, she might be able to do something useful for a change.
