- “Yes means yes” is dangerous in a world where “no means no”As I saw these theories grouped like this something clicked which led me to write the following comment:
- Women exploit rape laws to criminalize consensual sex they later regret
- Some rapes just happen on accident
Thanks for taking on these 3 statements. I believe they are tightly interconnected in many people’s thinking and behavior.
“Yes means yes” is the most dangerous to rapists who work to prevent victims from saying no or who lie when their victim did say no. They want the public and the police to believe that their victims are the exploiters and the rapists are the victims of a crime which happens when rape victims go to the police. And they need the belief in accidental rapists in case all that denial fails to hide the truth.
