Sorry, Feminists, Your Inability to Tell A Man ‘No’ Does Not Constitute Sexual Assault

Sorry, Feminists, Your Inability to Tell A Man ‘No’ Does Not Constitute Sexual Assault, by John Hawkins.

Have you heard about the new standards for sexual assault that liberal feminists have created? It’s called “Yes means yes” and its uglier cousin is called “enthusiastic consent.” See, the idea isn’t just that a woman is willing if she doesn’t say “no” or even if she consents; the new feminist standard is that she must verbally consent enthusiastically… or it’s RAPE! …

Humans have been figuring out how to have consensual sex with each other for 200,000 years, yet you get liberals involved in it and suddenly it becomes an unworkable hopeless mess. …

If you’re a far left-wing feminist looking to one-up everyone on a subject you care greatly about, like rape, how can you do it? After all, in the United States, rape is as universally condemned as something can be. So, in that case, how do you appear more sensitive than other people? Simple: you create controversial new definitions of rape that large numbers of people will disagree with. Then you can claim to be more sensitive than other people because you back the enlightened new standards …

So, we need to rewrite how consensual sex has worked for thousands of years to make feminists feel more woke and to make up for the fact that some girls don’t like telling a man “no.” …

What they are in effect demanding that society do is to give women the ability to arbitrarily charge men with rape. Oh, you both had a few drinks and then had sex? Then he raped you. Oh, so you got naked and gave him oral sex, but he didn’t verbally ask before he rolled over and the two of you had sex for 15 minutes? That’s rape. Oh, you said “yes,” but he seemed like kind of a jerk later, so you’re saying your consent wasn’t “enthusiastic?” Wow, you’ve been raped. You either have to hate men, desperately want to please women who hate men, or be baffled by human nature to support something like this. …

When you’re talking about consent, women already have all the power. The men can beg, pout, bargain, complain, or pressure all they want, but the women are always the ones who get to decide exactly how far a consensual sexual encounter is going to go. If you’re a woman and that’s too tough for you, then maybe you’re just not ready to have sex.

Modern feminism … to infinity and beyond!
