they are working with a rape apologist who creepily wants to "protect" them from other rapists..... When there are people with such offensive opinions that attacking women is not that serious, of course being escorted by such a person is potentially dangerous.

Prove me wrong, convince me that intentionally failing to offer citizens equal protection of the laws is not important to our country's ideals.

More liberal spin, more liberal bullshit. Seeing a woman safely to her car at night hardly equates to making her a pet. And while women are equal to men in many ways, they aren't equal in all ways. If they were, there'd be no reason for them to find walking alone to their cars in the dark to be a potentially dangerous activity.
You keep bringing politics into this but Bill Clinton is just as guilt. The fact that the Republicans were so focused on a consensual extra-marital affair to find the evidence at the time is immaterial to this fact.

The claim that put women on a pedestal has nothing to do with political party or ideology either. "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others"

Nope

I was referencing this gem "Clearly it's because women have been taught to react this way by leftist victimhood ideology, starting in the late sixties."

It is you who is living under a victimhood ideology if you could get off of your cross, we could use the wood.

Let me quote Section 1 of the 14th Amendment for you just in case your memory is a bit rusty.

Quote:
Amendment XIV
Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The clearance and arrest rates for rape are shockingly low in this country. Primarily due to the pervasiveness of rape acceptance myths like the ones you are so convinced are true despite all evidence.

If your mother, sister or daughter was raped wouldn't you want her to see justice? If you, your father or your son was accused of rape wouldn't you want them/your to have a chance to defend themselves?

Because of these rape myths they are under reported, because of these rape myths they are rarely investigated, and because of these rape myths they are rarely prosecuted.

Lets say pretend I buy your claim that many of these claims are false or unfounded. If it goes through the courts which have a presumption of innocence it is far more likely that a malicious claim will be discovered.

But when you remove the legal system as an option people will use other methods to find relief and in modern times that means going to the media. The media does not have the requirement surrounding an assumption of innocence nor standards of evidence.

The problem is that you are lying to yourself. You are not at risk of being a victim you are playing the victim and you are doing so purely out of myths and fear.

This is the basis of my claim that your actions are un-American, you are throwing the victims and the accused to the media do to your insecurity. It actually doesn't matter at all what the percentage of false claims is for this to be true.

Your victimization mindset is denying all parties from the protections of due process which leads to two possibilities.

60,000 women, children and yes even men are being raped each year without justice or 100's of men are thrown to the wolves in the media without access to legal counsel and due process.

As you seem to try and be a good person I doubt that this is with malice but our forefathers made it quite clear that doing nothing in the face of injustice is just as evil.

And it wasn't just men harassing women in those movies. There were a number of movies that featured women seducing underaged boys. Risky Business was just the first that came to mind. And it wasn't just about sex. Cheech and Chong made a career out of showing how funny it was to do drugs. It was overall a much more free-wheeling time. And the 'sexual revolution' and feminists back then were very different. Commercials celebrated women who 'dared to wear short-shorts'. A Gremlin commercial had a woman smiling when a guy pulled up and said, "Hey toots - where's the other half of your car?" A very young Brooke Shields informed us that she doesn't wear panties under her Calvins. Panty commercials had women wearing tight pants walking by ogling men, and the women turning to the camera and saying that her panties made it look like she was wearing nothing at all. Commercials for pantyhose showed women walking by construction workers who hooted and whistled at them, and the message (to women) was that if you wore their pantyhose and a short skirt, maybe men will do the same for them.

I could go on. Let's not forget that the 'sexual revolution' and the empowerment of sex for women was a feminist message then.
You clearly never read Ms magazine in those days or listened to conversations among my friends and female relatives. There was plenty of objections. We were scoffed at as prudes.

Plus the heated argument with my then-boyfriend about the rape in Revenge of the Nerds.

I treat them with respect and consideration. I'm cheerful and good-natured and I am friendly with them without hitting on them, telling them dirty jokes, or making sexually related comments. I'm quick to help if I see a woman in need, i.e., flat tire, struggling to get a large object into their car at the mall, etc. I'd wager that I generally treat women better than most of the men here, and am also more pleasant to be around. I have many great friendships with women, and my best friend is a woman I've known for 53 years.

And if you'll re-read what I said you'll note that I said I was fed up with idiocy involving sex, not sex itself.
You treat women posters on this board like they don't exist. Every single one who posts on these topics says that your approach on these issues is not only wrong, but disgusting. And that doesn't give you any pause at all.

I feel compelled to add other details of that time. I was frighteningly naive when I went off to college. I frequently found myself - put myself, if you insist - into very uncomfortable situations with men my age. I had not the words or sense of self to voice my objections until in a similar position as Dr. Blasey Ford, although not by force. When I finally did, I was met with frustration and disappointment, but never with threats or violence. All of these men - of age 19 to 21 - sighed and backed off. To my memory, all saw me safely to my car or home with no further advances.

I say all this to say, it was by no means assumed universally, or even commonly, that anything short of kicking and screaming is consent. I can't imagine any of them putting their hands over my mouth and turning up the music to hide my screams for help. Even in the freewheeling 70s, most of the time no meant no.

As I will keep repeating as often as is necessary: it's actually worse than that. He doesn't treat them like they don't exist, he claims that they are brainwashed and that's the only reason anyone disagrees with him. He has literally said this. Stop engaging him. Whether he's trolling or mentally ill, there is no value in trying to convince him that he's wrong after a statement like that.

SA, despite the inevitable futility, I'm going to try to help you understand why so many people are pissed off with your way of thinking.

Say you want to buy a car. Do you
A) Look for one that was built in the 50's, because they really knew how to build cars back then, or
B) Look for something newer?

If you answered A, do you realize how hard it would be to properly maintain it? Parts aren't made for it any more. You have to go to junkyards and hope they have the same model that's still serviceable. Or, you have to find a vintage car collector and convince him to sell you the part you need. It will be tremendously expensive. Bottom line is, you have to devote virtually your entire spare time and income to maintaining it, and in doing so, you deprive yourself of modern technology that would be much easier and less costly to maintain.

You're doing the same thing with your moral values. They don't work in today's society. You're devoting your life to maintaining obsolete values that don't work for this time period. You may look like a sturdy monolith in your own eyes, but everybody else sees a piece of garish junk. Blame it on liberals all you want, but no society remains static for long. Remember when we outlawed slavery, despite pushback from the old values contingent? It's like that.

Or is all this pro-feminist outrage merely politics?
That's different. Those women are slut cum-buckets who deserved to be dragged through the mud. On the other hand, women who accuse Republican of sexually assault are almost certainly telling the truth and every effort must be made to get to the truth of the matter.

This whole thing is political circus. If this was to replace Clarence Thomas instead of Kennedy, we would not be hearing about a 35 year old sexual assault allegation that allegedly occurred while Kavanaugh was a minor. Those are some thin straws to be grasping at.

The Democrats are burning a lot of bridges and crossing a lot of Rubicons with this one but the fact of the matter is that this nominee is likely the 5th vote in favor of narrowing the scope of a constitutional right to an abortion and that's a fight worth burning bridges over. I suspect that Kavanaugh will get confirmed and the next time the Democrats hold the senate and the presidency, they are going to pack the court.

Having watched yesterday's travesty of a hearing, I'm not so sure it's the Democrats doing the bridge-burning here, but if you feel Republicans can get along perfectly fine without the female vote, knock your bad self out.

As for your hypothetical about Democrats packing the court, that'll be perfectly OK, because that's what the Republicans would do, right?

The latter crosses both sides of the political aisle, but applies to liberals especially because they weaponize it with the result that women live angry, unhappy, victimized lives.
Interesting. So anyone who has "a problem" with rapists, is a left wing idiot? Fuck you.

True this. Women have no agency in his world view. Our beliefs are not our own. We are happy or unhappy at the behest of some puppet master, who constructs our mental map for us.

Women have always been told that it could’ve been worse. If some guy tries to assault us and we get away, we are lucky he didn’t catch us. If he assaults us and we struggle free, we’re lucky he didn’t rape us. If he rapes us, we are lucky that he didn’t kill us when he was done. We’re lucky that we didn’t get pregnant. If we get pregnant, we’re lucky that we got this gift from God.

Which is why you didn’t win any points when you pointed out that there are women who are kidnapped and held captive and raped daily for years, so maybe Ms. Ford should get over her assault because that didn’t happen to her.

I think on some level guys just don’t get it. The see rape as someone being forced to engage in a pleasurable or at least, potentially pleasurable activity. Because “the worst sex I ever had was still pretty good, har har har” ( I’ve heard that one a hundred times).
Sexual assault is a violation of autonomy at the most basic level. And that violation is magnified every time the victim is doubted and disparaged. The insinuation that is isn’t that big of a deal because you “let” other guys do that to you all the time. The implication that your dress or behavior proves that you really wanted it. The instruction that if rape was inevitable we should “relax and enjoy it”.

There was no recognition of how incredibly psychologically injurious sexual assault can be.

The “culture of victimization” was the one that existed back in the day.

We were victimized by being told it was not that big of deal. We were victimized when we were taught that we should ignore it and laugh it off. It only now that women are fighting that victimization by standing up and holding the perpetrators accountable and trying to change the culture that has enabled this behavior.

I hope I'm not in the minority, but I don't think Kavanaugh or Clinton are fit to hold any office. Is it too much to ask that the leadership of this country not be (alleged) sex offenders? This isn't a court of law, it's a job interview. There's plenty of evidence to justify picking someone else!

As I man I have no possibility of even knowing what the social or personal impacts are for women and as I haven't been raped I cannot even relate to that event. There is just not reasonable way for me to even hazard a guess. I don't know how someone can even claim to know how someone should react to being a victim of a crime.

While I don't want to reference someone who is suspended and cannot defend themselves as I was an active poster I do want to clarify.

There is no rational or moral justification for making a crime victim feel shame. A victim of rape or sexual assault do not deserve to be subject to pity in my mind, they deserve respect, compassion and understanding. They also deserve the basic human right of deciding how they feel about being a victim and we cannot tell them how to react.

Rape apologists are not victims they are perpetrators and do not have that same right in my mind.

While some posters were responding out of anger, my responses were driven by pity and embarrassed for someone who is so obviously wrapped up in insecurities as to strike out in fear at imaginary monsters.

Any anger I personally harbor is due to the collateral damage caused by these childish fears and that damage is disgustingly massive.

The only justification I can think of is that they view wives as property and responsible for their husbands actions or they think that Trump will nominate Bill to the supreme court.

Bill Clinton shouldn't be revered but he hasn't been relevant to politics for decades.

Not arguing against this in any way, but I'm pretty sure the objection is to packing the Supreme Court rather than the job interview.

Because that poster who cannot defend himself brought up Clinton when he first entered the thread, and because the weirdo further up this page repeated his argument?

Well, it's for the best all around. On Starving Artist's own repeated assertion, he's always been a much nicer person and much better liked in real life than here on these boards. Now he can spend more time being a nicer person and better liked in real life, and we don't have to deal with him being a pestilential dimwit online. Winning-winning.

So he was actually clear in that he was suffering from Greater Internet Fuckwad Syndrome. Damn what a terrible affliction. Please give generously to continue the fight so others, too, can be freed from that scourge.
