    This guy is as thick as pig shit if he doesn’t realise women have to compensate for male culture -and sad to say, as a male- predatory sexual behaviours.

    I wonder if he stopped to ask himself: ”What measures do men take to stop their delicate egos being raped and smashed by women and other men?”

    From having to defend themselves against males, women have developed a whole skill set that can stuff men up for life……just visit the family court to see those skills in action.

      In a way, women are the holders of the heroin that drives a young man crazy. Only a tiny minority would commit the crime of rape, probably quite a few are just incompetent and would go about things the wrong way.
      I wonder what they would teach a young man in sex-education; I fear it would be PC?
      Many men as they get a bit older say: “if I knew then what I know now”, although that is probably based on “scoring”. Evolutionary psychology trumps feminism.

        Is that “Evolutionary psychology Donald trumps feminism”

        Trump continues with charm offsensive in Europe.

          Under current UK law, Brigitte Macron,is a sex offender and rapist.

        Brigitte Macron is a French women- c’est la vie.

    “Then the women were asked how often in their relationship had they been turned down for sex from their partner, not one hand was raised. The question was put to the males in the audience and all the men put up their hand (some both hands). By the time we got through all their tales of past/current partners suddenly going off sex a year or so into their relationships & not caring of the consequences to the relationship it was 12 oclock Wednesday (the session started Monday morning) and had filled 20 blackboards. The women had heard it all before”.

      What’s the point you’re trying to make here? Because it reads a little bit like you’re suggesting that women’s struggle with sexual violence is mirrored by men’s struggle with not having enough sex. Or that the two problems are related?

      • Patzcuaro

        “Sexual violence”, violence says it all, it’s not about sex but more about power.

        Mefrostate: I’d rather leave it there open for interpretation – though I will confirm it is not anti-women or promoting/condoning sexual violence of any type which I abhor.

        • Mefrostate

          Oh okay. I did read it as somewhat minimising sexual violence towards women and I was #triggered.

    Look at the source of Pete’s post -> newwavefeminism. Cultural Marxist propaganda.

    Lets break it down into the two relevant components – Intimate Partner Violence [ which feminists themselves claim is the big issue] and “Stranger Danger” sexual crimes.

    Women are at least half the problem in IPV, some studies even show they are a lot more likely to be violent in the relationship.

    Here’s some hate-facts for you:


    There are numerous studies that have investigated intimate partner violence. In Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say, Dr Warren Farrell lists over 50 studies where it was found there was relative gender symmetry, or that women were more often violent than men.

    In 2010, Dr Murray Straus wrote a paper examining why there had been 30 years of denial of gender symmetry and what impact that has on combating the problem of domestic violence. In New Zealand, there have been two multi-disciplinary cohort studies which are lauded for their insights into many aspects of our lives. Those studies have covered domestic violence.

    Professor David Fergusson, Joseph Boden and Dannette Marie from a Christchurch cohort found there was no statistical difference in both perpetration and victimisation for women and men.

    Professor Lynn Magdol and others from a Dunedin cohort found nearly twice as many women perpetrated violence as men. When the violence was severe, this ballooned to more than three times the rate.

    Straus, in a New Zealand sample in an international study of dating violence, found very similar numbers to Magdol.

    This year, Shelley Johnson reported surprise at finding that 38 per cent of victims in Canterbury were male.

    [Deleted, unsubstantiated generalisation. PG]… to further peddle their ideological agenda. [Ironic]

    Men are victims in around 30% of sexual assaults, depending on the source you read. Three things they can do to reduce the risk is;

    1. Don’t go to prison,
    2. Don’t get in a relationship with an abusive spouse.
    3. Be wary of teachers.

      What should we be doing to stop perpetrators from committing these crimes?

      You forgot to avoid priest, clergymen & pastors.

        “You forgot to avoid priest, clergymen & pastors.”

        Not really a significant feature of NZ life these days now are they?

        • Patzcuaro

           /  July 14, 2017

          But they do have history when it comes to sex abuse, Graham Capill for instance.

    Did any of the women say “Get married?”

    • Joe Bloggs

       /  July 14, 2017

      Sadly a marriage certificate is no magic solution to sexual assault.

          I’m a strong believer in marriage, Alan, but it doesn’t prevent abuse by an abusive spouse. Especially when the abuser thinks they’re the ones being abused because their spouse won’t see everything their way & they know best about everything.

          • Alan Wilkinson

             /  July 14, 2017

            I’m a strong believer in marriage to the right person, G. That doesn’t include marriage to an abuser.

            • Gezza

               /  July 14, 2017

              The abuser doesn’t show up at first. We’d probably be surprised how many “absolute bitches” get out because they finally stand up to it, & get swapped for someone more docile.

            • Alan Wilkinson

               /  July 14, 2017

              I have the impression that most abusers reveal themselves pretty quickly. I might be wrong though. On the other hand nowadays most couples have likely lived together for some time before marriage anyway. I can’t conceive of marrying someone whose values are not compatible.

              No, they don’t. They just slowly take over, often virtuously.

              Missing the point Al. They miss those – early on. They don’t always turn up in the stats. They eventually get out. They’re often the “selfish bitch who took me for every penny she could get” (they got what they were legally entitled to) until you meet them & hear their side of the story.

              I’m sure there are some that way. I’m just not sure that they are the majority.

    Men are far more likely to be victims of violence and homicide. We also lead in suicide and die earlier. So meh.

    As for male feminists, um, only the most chauvinistic of men would be against women having equal rights and equal opportunity so calling yourself a male feminist is nothing more than virtue signalling. It’s passive aggressive posturing like those “I love my wife” stickers religious bigots like to put on their cars.

  9. What an interesting thread…..

    • Corky

       /  July 14, 2017

      Insightful comment, Dave.

      • What can be said on this thread that won’t be misconstrued or misinterpreted Corky? The original post was a rewording and walk around the classic feminist slogan “all men are rapists”.
        We all know that to be untrue.
        Many men, myself included, abhor rape – doesn’t matter to a hard core feminist. “all men are rapists”
        Pointless thread that won’t advance the conversation about abuse and violence in relationships – because it starts from the premise that men are the problem when really people are the problem….
        More insightful?

          Being attractive has a downside. Being weaker and attractive doubles that. Sometimes just being weaker is as bad.

          Therefore, don’t be weaker. Maybe gender is not the over-riding factor. Neither of my wives would have been a good victim for an abuser to pick. He would not emerge unscathed and possibly not even alive.

      Gender mixed uncertain sexuality but sexually active identifying as male human breeder and baby are doing well.
