For instance, this anti-rape poster recently posted on Reddit:
“Jake was drunk. Josie was drunk. Jake and Josie hooked up. Josie could not consent. The next day Jake was charged with rape. A woman who is intoxicated cannot give her legal consent for sex, so proceeding under these circumstances is a crime. It only takes a single day to ruin your life. Think about it. Be responsible.”
Predator? Jake. Prey? Josie. Why? Male v. female. That’s why. And the “Be responsible” message seems aimed at Jake more than anything. The reality that is completely avoided by this poster is that neither man nor woman, when sufficiently intoxicated, has or exercises self-restraint. That is just the truth of that type of situation. But although this is the case, Jake was the sole perpetrator, and Josie would never be considered an accomplice. With advertisements such as this, the Left is saying that women need to be protected. They are admitting that women need help over men. And here I thought women in 2015 America were strong creatures who kick down the patriarchy with every independent thought of theirs? Oh, how I was wrong. We’re helpless creatures, right? Well, apparently only in situations where accusation of assault might come up. Only then are we allowed to pearl-clutch in the corner, albeit briefly.
