If you’ve been watching March Madness basketball, you’ve probably seen the latest feminist-inspired agitprop in the form of an NCAA advertisement in solidarity with a White House campaign which proclaims “It’s On Us” to stop sexual assault. The official White House report “Rape and Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call to Action” cites the one in five number feminists throw around as indisputable fact. The entire campaign is built on a dubious foundation, suggesting that the responsibility for stopping sexual assault should fall to literally everyone.
This campaign will reduce the prevalence of sexual assault about as much as an after-school basketball program for inner-city “youth” will reduce murder.
At a time when mass hysteria has been inflamed by the lunatic idea that every female college student is under constant threat of being sexually assaulted by privileged white male predators, you get contrived ads such as this to keep the “rape culture” fantasy fresh in people’s minds. The “It’s On Us” campaign fits in with other widespread propaganda pushing the idea that the (wildly exaggerated) amount of rapes being committed can be decreased by
raising awareness spreading misinformation to gullible masses.
Feminists like to claim we live in a “rape culture” where rape is normalized and accepted. They respond poorly to limiting blame for rape to the actual rapist, and suggesting any personal responsibility for women has become heresy of the highest order. Telling a woman that it might not be a good idea to get blackout drunk and wander through the “bad” part of town alone while wearing a short skirt gets you labeled as a victim-blaming rape apologist.
Actually trying to prevent victimization by providing ways for women to reduce risk factors is now frowned upon. It’s gotten so bad that even police officers—who have a vested interest in lowering the crime rate—can provide basic, common sense methods for women to decrease their chances of being sexually assaulted without enraged feminists attacking them. In fact, the “SlutWalk” phenomenon started when a Toronto police officer suggested that “women should avoid dressing like sluts” to reduce the risk of becoming a target.
In the absence of basic common sense, there is no shortage of contrived “It’s On Us” commercials and “Teach Men Not to Rape” proclamations. If that same logic were applied to other crimes people could be expected to say “don’t tell me to lock my doors, teach people not to steal.” One thing feminists are not known for is rock solid logic.
Certain feminists claim that porn is horrendously degrading to women and others believe that female porn stars are “empowered” in that sexually liberated way. Some feminists even go so far as to claim that all sex, the very act whether consensual and mutually pleasing or not, is rape. This mindset effectively reduces the existence of mankind to being the result of an abominable act. But the topic of how rape should be perceived seems to produce more uniformity among feminists: it is to be seen as an extremely common and accepted act that is committed by white males to solidify their patriarchal power over women.
Only in what feminists gleefully call the “patriarchy” would an entire society be expected to only take on the responsibility for stopping a crime in which women are perceived to be the overwhelming majority of victims. If the US were an actual patriarchy wherein woman are basically second class citizens, Congress would not be passing bills that “recognize the disparate impact of climate change on women,” nor would the POTUS be signing the “Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013,” nor would you expect to see initiatives that proudly boast about the fact they provide water to women (not people) in developing countries.
It Really Is On Us
It’s not on us to stop sexual assault any more than it is on us to stop murder. Obviously, it can’t be done no matter how many public ad campaigns designed to “raise awareness” or draconian laws that put the burden of proof on the accused man and effectively obliterate the sacred principle of “innocent until proven guilty.” Murder is still committed in states with the death penalty and was even committed back in the bad old days when there were public executions for such crimes.
It is, however, largely on us to stop the SJW infestation from spreading through gaming culture. Wherever they have set their destructive gaze, droves of people have rolled over like subservient dogs pleasing their masters. They wield the power of media and government like a mad dictator. Few in power will side with us or dare oppose our enemies. They seek to isolate dissenters like us and make our opinions toxic. If SJWs get their way, games will resemble the abominations that comic books have become soon enough.
We have the power to show developers there is an audience for games that are not beholden to social justice mandates. We may all disagree on what the next offensive in this war should be, but we should all agree that there needs to be one. Regardless, we need to send one message loud and clear: we will not yield.
