Subverting the patriarchal paradigm

What then?   Submit   "...and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant. And whatever a sun will always sing is you. Here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart. I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)"

Thus, the logic of the feminist argument to “Teach men not to rape” is revealed.

Yes because it’s such a radical notion to expect rapists to control themselves.

This analogy is terrible because
When someone reports a robbery and the police come, they don’t find out the home owner’s door was left unlocked and decide a crime didn’t take place or imply that the home owner was literally asking to be robbed.  They still treat it like a crime and search for the guilty part regardless of the actions of the homeowners.
The percentage of the general population that commits home invasion and burglary is FAR lower than the percentage of people who commit rape, and studies show the vast majority of people who commit rape don’t consider it rape. (A coerced or unconscious person is seen as consenting for example).
Educating people on the concept of consent and how to respect bodily autonomy is not some huge overask, it’s like a very basic thing that would take very little time and impact the world in huge ways.
HOUSES ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS, AND HAVING SOME BELONGINGS STOLEN IS NOT THE SAME AS BEING SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AND HAVE YOUR BODILY AUTONOMY VIOLATED.

5. People will turn to theft when living under various systems of oppression to get by, while rape is used as a tool for oppression.

POINT NUMBER 1.

"Even with videotaped evidence of police destroying black people, many freedom-loving Americans remain unconvinced of a systemic problem. Maybe some day the perfect tape will be released, one in which the dead or maimed African American has just the right wardrobe, complexion, size and diction to warrant empathy."

—Jesse Williams on the death of John Crawford

We call ships ‘she.’ We call our war machines ‘women.’ We compare women to black widows and vipers. And you’re going to tell me it’s not ‘lady-like’ to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want. You’ve looked at nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don’t try to down-play my power.
