On Disguising Logical Fallacies in ‘Feminist’ Arguments

Image from Samantha Field - Defeating The Dragons

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons While the following may not be a completely universal experience, in my experience it tends to be a common one: when a rape victim starts talking about their experience (especially on the internet), inevitably someone somewhere is going to say something along the lines of “you need to take responsibility for your own choices that led to this.” And then they are shocked– shocked, I say– when someone responds with “stop victim blaming us.” After all, how could they be victim blaming? Didn’t you just hear them argue for agency and autonomy? They are the real feminist in this conversation because real feminists “acknowledge that … [Read more...]

Can We Please Stop it With the ‘Feminist’ Videos Already?

Screen cap from the video "Slap Her" from Defeating The Dragons site.

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons You’ve probably seen the video that the above image is pulled from– the Facebook-viral “Slap Her.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here. I don’t really want to take the time to dissect all the reasons why this video was actually kind of horrible, but if you’re interested, these two articles covered it rather well:Dr. Rebecca Hains’ ‘Slap Her': Fanpage.it video objectifies girls, exploits boys, and trivializes domestic violence R.L. Stollar’s ‘Slap Her': The So-Called Heartwarming Video that’s Actually Disturbing … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Only True Sexual Consent Happens When The Wedding Band Is Put On?

Quoting

by Andrea Mrozek and Rebecca Walberg as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - A Higher Standard For Sexual Relations. Original article at MercatorNet; Why not hold sexual relations to a higher standard?Editor's note: Another case of Ladies Against Feminism taking an article that contains some actual ideas that aren't too bad and immediately using it to push an idea well beyond that of the original author. LAF wants to make sex outside of marriage a crime, a crime that could be prosecuted by law enforcement and the justice system! No where in the original article does it bring up this dangerous and extremist idea. Instead of discussion of how a higher standard might help ease the problem or … [Read more...]

Bob Jones University Ignored Sexual Abuse for Decades

puke

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: Welcome back to the world of blogging. Bruce, you've been sorely missed.)Under attack over their handling of sexual abuse and rape complaints, fundamentalist Christian university, Bob Jones University, hired GRACE (Godly Response for Abuse in the Christian Environment), to do an investigation.  Towards the end of the investigation, Bob Jones ended its contractual arrangement with GRACE and refused to allow any report to be issued. The outrage over this was such that Bob Jones was forced to re-contract with GRACE and the report has now been released. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Report More False Than True Rape Incidents?

Some of the same infuriating rape culture thinking that Matt Walsh promotes..

by Matt Walsh at The Matt Walsh Blog - False Rape Accusations Are Just as Evil as Rape ItselfWhile Matt is not addressing the recently revealed allegations that Bob Jones University officials covered up sexual abuse cases on campus, he is sounding off on the recent story in Rolling Stone magazine about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. After Rolling Stone published their story of ignored rape taking place in a fraternity it came out that the accuser was lying. He seizes upon this one story to make his assertions that rape is mostly made up instead of examining the evidence that Bob Jones and other Christian schools have lied and covered up … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Definition of Rape?

drunksex

by Matt Walsh of The Matt Walsh Blog -  We Can't End 'Rape Culture' if We Don't End Hook Up Culture An article on the Huffington Post takes it a step further. In bold italics it exclaims: “Drunk people cannot give consent.” By this logic, of course, all drunk sex is rape. Only this particular article, like most articles on the subject, places the ‘rapist’ label squarely on the shoulders of the man.The obvious question: if both are drunk, and both are unable to consent, but then both have sex, why is the man the only rapist in the transaction? … [Read more...]

News: Jack Schaap Trying To Squirm Out Of Sentence

While dress codes are not the issue in the Jack Schaap conviction the same attitudes of sexualizing a teenager and trying to blame her for his own attitudes towards her are the same.

Now Jack Schaap is claiming that he was improperly represented by his legal staff at his trial for violation of the Mann Act and sex with an underaged girl. Schaap is claiming his attorneys promised him a sentence of no more than ten years, yet the judge gave him twelve years. It was fully within the rights of the judge to decide the length of the sentence regardless of what prosecutors  or defense team members asked for as a sentence. … [Read more...]
