those survivors shouldn't have worn such provocative clothing, the little teases, and if they'd known how to defend themselves they'd never have been abused in the first place - therefore we need to teach men to wear frumpy clothing and how to use a house key as an offensive weapon.

WrodVeri: ouxae, didn't homer write about sir?

It sounds as though you're quite pleased that men are getting a taste of their own medicine: just as some men blame the rape of women on the women involved, so you, schadenfroh, pretend to blame the rape of men and boys on their clothing and behaviour. The comment behind the irony is: "ha! see how you like it!"

But it's not likely that the men who dismiss the rape of women as self-inflicted and the male victims of rape and molestation are the same people. And I think your comment, by implicitly conflating the two groups, is a little unfair.

Oh ho ho, but you forget that I am a radfeminist and think of men only as a class, and hence forth view men as a singular gestalt entity that can only really be examined statistically - therefore the exact difference between rape apologists and male rape victims is as meaningless as the difference between two molecules of air inside a balloon, hence forth they deserved it, QED.

Sorry, just trying to get into the mind set of the pro-man-rape strawfeminists that lurk the fetid backwaters of the MRA's various mindscapes, in a bizarre twist I actually wrote a serious post about this in reponse last night.

Suffice is to say, the idea that men get raped is neither a new thing in my world, nor is it something I actually view as distinctly different from "vanilla" rape just because there's less vaginas involved in the whole shebang.

Does that go for the previous comment as well? Was that too an attempt to reproduce the mentality of a radfem boogywoman as imagined by a psychotic MRA? Because, you know, it's quite hard to make out such an intention from the post itself. I don't suppose I was the only one who attributed the Schadenfreude to you personally.

Next time I read one of your posts I'll bear in mind that it might be no more than an impersonation!
