Defining Rape As Speaking Out Against Rape

David (from NY, NY) left the following comment on my post Defining rape and the failure to investigate competently:

I think you're obsessed with rape and need a life. Other than trying to rape young men's minds.

I find these types of comments revealing especially when they are left on posts which document the real injustices done to those who are raped.

In his warped worldview demanding that young men don't rape becomes rape.

Unfortunately the impression he leaves behind is that he takes my speaking out against those who rape very personally. Why oh why won't I leave young men like him alone with their rationalizations?

Update: To any anonymous boys who think that hurling different insults at me make you clever. All you are managing to communicate is that you have chosen to be pathetically weak and use verbal and physical violence against girls and women as a substitute for developing genuine strength and genuine character.

Unfortunately many young men and also adult men refuse to accept the truth and this is despite countless research on male sexual violence against women. When facts and evidence fail to convince these males they always resort to insults. But insults will never silence women and girls who have the courage to speak against the normalisation of men comitting rape. Rape is rape never just 'sex' but many men believe it is their right to take what is theirs by right - namely women's and girls' bodies.
