I have put a lot of thought into if I should post this or not, but it has been bugging me for a long time and I just need to get this rant out there
because I am really curious and quite frankly a little pissed about it.
Yes, the subject is rape as the title has alluded too. I actually have two rants about it. Feel free to address either one.
For the life of me I just dont understand how men can be so two sided about it. Yes, before everyone goes off on me, I realize not all men, but, for
this rants sake, I'd say the percentage is on my side of how many actually tolerate it in a passive way.
Now what could I possibly mean by that? Passive way? How many times have threads come up on this site about someone in the news being raped? Countless
threads. How often Do we read the response of, "If it was my daughter, I'd blah blah the sob." Yes, if it was
Can someone then please explain to me why there is really no action taken beyond outrage for anyone else's daughter, sister, mother, and yes sadly
even someones grandmother? Oh yes, that is for the court to decide, good they caught him, let Bubba deal with him in prison, I hope he gets what he
deserves. A shame it had to happen to that poor girl.
Outrage? Yes. Action taken after the fact? None. Why not before the fact?
I realize that it is a crime and it is for the justice system to take its due course, but my rant is, why do men not let it be known amongst
themselves that it just ISN'T ACCEPTABLE TO BEGIN WITH? The old boys club, boys will be boys. All is fair in war. WTH?
How often do we hear of cases of gang rape? There's always that one guy that joined in because he was afraid what the other guys would do to him if
he didnt. What's up with that? Is this just a case of a boy with no balls? Certainly can't call himself a man now can he?
Why do men not, as a collective let it be known amongst their peers that this just isnt acceptable beyond the public stance, wink wink? I dont get
Please explain this too me guys. How do you as a collective explain how you have let this go on with your own for eons of time? Why do you wait to get
mad until it is one of your own family or friend?
My one other rant, concern, is why on earth would we unleash such a drug as Viagra or anything similar on a populace that cant control itself on a
normal day? I cant help but wonder how many rapes have occurred just because some guys date planning didnt go exactly as planned and he had to release
that frustration somehow.
Yes, I get all the arguments that women can be a tease or whatever excuse you may want to use, but there is still no excusing a out right wrong. Im
sick of boys will be boys, I want to know when Men will be Men again and not just talk the talk and look the other way. I want to know when Men will
be Men and let the little boys know that it is not acceptable anymore in any kind of form.
This can also include child sexual abuse as well. This madness has to stop and quite frankly, it is up to you the MEN to stop it. Or, is a true Man
something of the past and only exist in Hollywood movies now?
Just for the record? No, I have not
