If I admit here and now feminist if society is truly against you, will you stop making it a self fulfilling prophecy. If false rape is so common such as a  November 24, 2010, WABC/Good Morning America weather forecaster Heidi Jones, 37, made a false police report when she claimed that two months earlier, a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s grabbed her from behind in Central Park while she was jogging, then dragged her into a wooded area, and attempted to rape her. The man bolted when two tourists saw the incident, she claimed. Jones also reported that the same man showed up near her Manhattan apartment almost two months later to threaten her. He allegedly told her: “I know you went to the police.” Police treated the claim very seriously but eventually grew skeptical, and Jones finally admitted she made it up. “I made it up for attention,” she admitted. “I have so much stress at work, with my personal life and with my family.” The Jones case would be a garden variety false rape claim if it weren’t for the widespread attention it has attracted due to the false accuser’s minor celebrity.

 If you keep claiming she is a minority of women when she isn’t the only thing left for people to do is hate the people that think she is a victim. Thus fulfilling your so called prophecy, and no people don’t hate all women for Ms Jones but they certainly will if you keep up ranting that she is 2% of all rape claims when its clear she isn’t. No one hates all women for this but you certainly aren’t giving them much choice.

Also if you keep supporting violence against men at random, and also claim you don’t support violence agaisnt them this double talk will only bring about more hate down upon your shoulders and I wouldn’t want that to happen but it certainly will. You honestly can’t expect us to think that if you keep trying to make rape a women’s only issue when its obviously not view pages 18-19 in the report or pages 28-29 in the PDF. What “sex” actually involves and means varies from person to person quite a bit.  For some people, sex means “penis in vagina (or anus) with thrusting for a period of time”, and that’s it.  For others, sex is a more inclusive term that includes oral sex, mutual masturbation and a whole slew of other acts.

The definition of rape can really have as wide or narrow a definition of “sex” as the party creating it wants, but that definition should be designed to be consistent and egalitarian; perpetrators or victims should not be excluded simply due to demographics. The perception that men really don’t get raped much at all is reinforced by almost everything that has anything to do with rape.  Laws and the courts that interpret them give far more attention to male perpetrators and female victims.  So do nongovernmental organizations like RAINN which create campaigns to “teach men not to rape”.  Lots of people don’t even realize male rape has happened when they witness it because it just doesn’t cross people’s minds that sometimes, men just don’t want to have sex.  It’s a vicious self-perpetuating cycle of victim erasure where ignorance of the problem is used as proof of its absence. The fact feminists are the lobbyist for these laws and organizations only lead to more people hating you, and I obviously can see anyone in their right mind want to be hated when they claim to stand for equality. I am merely saying that the only logical results you will receive is misogyny.
