Why do anti-rape campaigns only target female victims?
Wish I knew.
- because it's socially unacceptable for men to ever show weakness thus men are less likely to talk about the experience of rape.
- because the radical feminists have painted a picture of men as power-driven, sex-driven patriarchs who are always on the perpetrating end of abuse, and never on the receiving end.
- How many times have you heard a woman remark that men "only have one thing on their minds?" While I think that the male brain is more prone to be "unitasking" rather than multitasking the "one thing" women assume is on men's minds is not always sex. For some of us it's money, or technology, or politics, or sports, or maybe even God. Lately for me that "one thing" is self loathing. I haven't given sex much thought after the rape at all. But before the rape I was a sexual being. It just never took over my entire being.
- According to the logic that men only have one thing on their minds, if a man experiences rape, he must have wanted it. Because what else would a man want?
- Or there's that comment I hear women make about how men think with their penises and not their brains. Thanks for reducing us multi faceted male creatures to one body part, ladies. That's precisely what rapists do.
- It's OK to poke fun at men in our culture and make comments like this because it's not like men actually have feelings or anything. That would be ridiculous.
