{November 8, 2013}   The Big Picture – Misogynist – No Women No Rape – No Women No Date Rape Drugs

The very acceptance of women as equally contributing members of society, deserving of respect — and deserving not to be raped or to be forced into involuntary pregnancy — is under assault.

Moreover, this undeniably real War on Women is being fought on far more than just one front. They would deny us the right to control our own bodies, deny us economic opportunities, and take away all our rights of self-determination, based on the assertion that we simply do not deserve to be treated as equals. Why? Because they say we’re inherently inferior to the men who are supposed to rule over us. http://americablog.com/2013/10/battle-map-for-war-women-part1.html

The Male Perspective: What is new about date rape is that it marks an attempted shift in the definition of “rape.”

What is new about date rape is that it marks an attempted shift in the definition of “rape.” Previously, most people assumed rape was sexual intercourse forced on a woman who stated she was unwilling to participate. With date rape came the idea rape was what a man committed if he had sexual intercourse with a woman who did not explicitly agree to it. This is totally unfair to men. As Thomas [David Thomas wrote Not Guilty: In Defense of the Modern Man] (1993) puts it:

(T)here seems little way in which a boy can avoid being accused of rape. For boys are still expected to take girls out, pour a couple of drinks down them, plead everlasting love and then make a pass…. If you don’t at least try to seduce them, girls are apt to get offended (and start casting aspersions on your virility—PZ). And … there may never be a moment at which anyone actually asks, ‘May I?’ or gets the answer ‘Yes’.

 Then there’s the old problem of women who say “no” and mean “yes”, http://ic.galegroup.com/ic/ovic/ViewpointsDetailsPage/DocumentToolsPortletWindow?displayGroupName=Viewpoints&jsid=6576137629c5b8743af757fa00df6322&action=2&catId=&documentId=GALE%7CEJ3010008230&userGroupName=stteresas&zid=c04c7a40e5c55a434e8bb5a5a06d8270
