I watched the video above on anti feminism. Just for laughs and hoping it would show me the other side. The comments were filled with men cheering her on and saying things like, “I want to marry you” which is sexist in itself as she is trying be taken seriously, but let me not take it there.
There are so many inaccuracies in this video. Men are not raped more than women especially if you want to take into international statistics. She has mentioned the prison system and how men are raped in prison more than women in America. First of all, she did not include that women are also raped in prisons and many reports/cases have been dropped because it was by prison guards. Latest case was just reported at the beginning of the summer of a prison guard who has raped numerous victims for YEARS. 9 OUT OF 10 RAPE VICTIMS IN THE U.S. ALONE ARE WOMEN. She also conveniently did not mention transgender women housed in men’s prison facilities. You can only imagine what goes on…
She also said that men who are rape victims do not have safe houses to seek shelter or safety which is incorrect. Most safe houses that look after women rape victims also are equally open to male victims as well. They are not sexist in the case of ABUSE and will provide housing/job opportunities. Women and men will obviously be housed separately most of the time… I know this because I have personally volunteered in these shelters as well as read on ALL sites as she mentioned that she “googled” who have stated male rape statistics and ENCOURAGED to seek safety in their shelter.
She then states that women rape cases are taken more seriously in court. What world does she live in? Most lawyers train and prep the victims even if it causes trauma because they know the challenges they will face in the American judicial system. Not to also mention in many conservative states - the case WILL NOT be taken seriously. There have also been many loopholes that the system has created to allow a criminal to escape a rape charge quite easily especially for males. Secondly, this is moronic in a global scale of things because America is also not the center of the fucking universe nor the center of feminism.
Women do get more opportunities to join the armed forces, but to ONLY fill a quota as mentioned and taken as a complete joke. They literally just opened Ranger Schools to accept women… Yesterday. Women in combat just RECENTLY have been accepted and even so, only a FEW women are allowed to fight side by side with their male counterparts.
Conclusion: do not watch anti feminist videos because they are absolutely incorrect and most people who are relaying the message are quite uneducated on women’s rights.
Also as a feminist, I do not hate men. I do not encourage male bashing. I love men who love women and who want women to have the same rights as they have.
