I was watching this video last night before bed. It totally boggled my mind, because of how naive I really was. Sure I have heard of Stealthing. And how it was perpetrated as a rape crime. if a man was to remove his condom during sex if a woman gave clear concise instructions not to. He took away her right.
A man could be charged with rape.
So can a woman.
Why doesn’t it penetrate the brain that everyone can be a victim?
Men could be raped by man or woman. No means no. Doesn’t matter what the situation is. Men could be molested. Men could have their rights taken away, but society doesn’t see that because they don’t see men as vulnerable. men are always perpetrated as horn dogs ready to go for sex whenever the occasion arises. No means no. simple as that. No matter the sex. Rape is a horrible degrading act of violence that is forced on the victim. No one should ever go through that. No one.
This where shit gets twisted.
if a woman should stealth a man she would not be charged.
If a man made it explicitly clear he didn’t want no children, yet she didn’t take birth control or she poked holes in his condoms to become pregnant she would not be charged.
Being a mother is her right.
What about her partner’s right? the dude said no to kids! That was his right. She took that away from him. that was his sperm. She was taking it away from him. Wouldnt it be outrage if someone took her eggs without her consent? Yes, it would be. So why wouldn’t it be an outrage if someone took a man’s sperm without his consent?
The woman gets pregnant. He still doesn’t want the kid, or isn’t aware of the kid. She could slap the guy with child support. but in his defense, he can’t ask for an abortion. Because it is her body. Her decision.
I was sitting there in my own ignorance, stunned by my own naivety.
I probably rambled on incoherently in this post but it was such a fascinating and educational video!
Changes one’s perspective on victimization.
