  •  Because too many men (22+ / 0-)

    know that they have been or plan to be borderline rapists. The getting her drunk before you sleep with her types, the high-pressure con artists, the ones who won't take no for an answer until she just gives in from exhaustion (and/or fear).

    The men for whom sex is a game, like "football," or a war, where "winning" is having sex no matter what your "partner" wants, and "scoring" is everything.

    (This, I think, is what the idiot at the school was referring to: That had she "played the game" properly, she never would have found herself getting raped. Thus it was all her fault. Just as, if you play the game properly, you will never be robbed, assaulted, cheated, or have any other crime perpetrated against you. Every victim of any crime is always the one at fault, you see. This is why we have no prisons or police. Or law. But I digress.)

    When too many men hear the word rape, they think -- they KNOW -- they have crossed the line, maybe not all the way to rape, but far enough. This is what they fear. This is why they deny rape so vehemently.

    And for too many women, the fact that they have never been raped "proves" that they are "good girls" who played the game properly and are thus far, far superior to the sluts who allow themselves to be raped.

    Such pride and lust, two of the cornerstones of conservatism, that stout bastion of every sin and evil, allow the conservative mind to see rape as just desserts for the weak and foolish. Proof that they, themselves are simply better and deserve all the benefits they enjoy or think they should enjoy.
