If we want to end the pandemic of rape, it’s going to require an entire global movement of men willing to do the hard work of interrogating the ideas they were raised with
via Toxic Masculinity.
So you raise generations of males in the belief that they need not to hold their urges, that they are to be rewarded no matter what the behavior, that there are no consequences for their actions. Then you raise generations of women with the conflicting message that they can be what they want but they better not be other than victims depending on males or the government and you come to bitch about rape being the epidemic we are having right now?
I am not gonna toot the idea that older times were better. Certainly rape has been a big problem through the ages and will remain with us for as long as the human race exists, but you cannot ignore the fact that when rape was a crime that exacted harsh retribution, women were less of a target. But as with most violent crime, the political monkeys of the 60s decided that rapists were poor lost souls that needed understanding and therapy to overcome their “sickness.”
And yes, there were plenty of cases back then that were never reported because of the shame associated with it, but there were also men that suddenly had “accidents” such as mutilations, deadly falls, combine mishaps and even hunting accidents that made them part of a fertile soil. Even in the wildest towns of the Wild West, the fastest way to end up beaten to a pulp was to address a woman with unkind language and forced sex was usually followed by a long stretch of hanging from a short rope.
There is no need to do “hard work” to reign in rape: Get a rapist, get a dull machete, apply cut. Word will get out soon enough and the “joy” of assaulting females will be something to be seriously reconsidered….. that’s if the females do not retrain the attackers with a proper application of ballistic therapy first.
