As a conservative, I can appreciate certain Republicans’ lack of tact in discussing certain topics. I hate political correctness. But there is a pretty large and, honestly, fair consensus that Republican officials hoping for a future should never, ever, dear God, never talk about rape. That’s a bandwagon I can happily jump on.
I am not a Republican official, however, so I am going to talk about rape; in particular, false accusations thereof.
Cassandra: My ex-boyfriend raped me today. Well, not today, more like, last month. I just found out about it today. See, he promised to marry me if I had sex with him, but he found out that I cheated last night, and broke up with me this morning. How can I get the police to side with me on this?
Nancy: Tell them he held you down last night and forced you. Tear up your clothes a bit. Put on a bit of a show for them.
Cassandra: Why won’t just telling the police the truth work? : (
Nancy: Because the law has an unreasonably strict definition of rape. The police wouldn’t consider what your ex did to you rape because you let him do it.
Cassandra: That’s f[*****] up. Thanks for the advice. I’m sure it’ll work out. 🙂
Thus ends the conversation. Cassandra’s original post received 27 “likes.”
This is what feminism has wrought–an astonishingly fantastical sense of entitlement and a complete disregard for others’ well-being over a woman’s own selfish pursuit of slander and vengeance.
And that’s to say nothing of their butchery of the English language. You can’t “find out” a whole month after the fact that you were raped, barring having been unconscious. That is not rape, and rape is not such a complicated concept as to excuse a person’s ignorance of its meaning. The law’s “unnecessarily strict definition” of rape happens to be the very definition of rape: not permitting a person to have sex with you, not permitting it and then regretting it.
This evil woman felt entitled to cheat on her fiancé without consequence. He is, after all, a mere male. He is lower than “womyn”; who is he to get upset over something a feminist woman does against him?
Cassandra’s friend Nancy advises her to exact revenge on her boyfriend for breaking up with her by accusing him of raping her. What seems to be lost on these despicable ladies is that the fabrication of a story about rape necessarily means she was not raped.
Accusations of rape can ruin a man’s life. He can go to jail for life without any proof of his alleged crime. If he is spared jail, he has still been put through the ordeal of having to defend his good name in court with the media slandering him every day before the entire nation, and all over a woman’s lie. This has to stop.
I don’t know what ended up happening with Cassandra, but here’s my proposal as to what should happen to any woman who is caught lying about rape, accusing a man of such an abominable, shameful act:
Whatever the sentence would have been for the act that a woman knowingly falsely accuses a man of: that would be the sentence the woman must now be given. If the circumstances of the falsified rape would have warranted 25 years in prison for the falsely accused rapist, then the accusing woman must go to prison for 25 years. If the sentence for the man would have been life imprisonment, then the woman goes to prison for life.
The media’s coddling of these women and treating them like heroes of feminism only encourages women to keep lobbing accusations at men who anger them. Only such severe consequences as the ones I’ve just proposed will deter women like Cassandra from attempting to ruin a man’s entire future.
