I wouldn't dream of doing that.I don't think Sittingstress was saying that is what he thought, he was quoting from research on the subject. If you disagree with the research fair enough but don't tear him a new arrse hole for reporting in.
But what excactly do you mean then? I mean what does that piece of informatin tell us?Firstly, Ladybird under NO circumsatnces do I say it is worse for men to be raped than women. The crime itself is abhorrent irrespective of it's nature. The fact of the matter though is that women EXPECT to be raped in certain situations whereas men do not.
Agreed - and it's going the right way.I want to steer the general military populus away from the popular misconception that rape is mainly used against women. However I am not in the business of saying that blokes are worse off. The overall knowledge and attitude towards all rapes needs to be improved across the board especially in the military.
I know it may sound so, this is not my intention. Only very few men are actual rapists, some more are potential rapists, but that does not mean that I don't like men or anything even remotely close to that. Rape is a cultural phenomenon as you also pointed out earlier. What I stated is closely connected with what you say here:I disagree with your point that sexual violence is used to control ALL women. That is a sweeping generalisation which to some people may sound particularly anti-man in it's sentiment.
...rape ranks very high on all womens "fearlist" as such, thus the control. The fear of sexual assault is ofcourse very determining for the behaviour of the individual. The number of actual rapes is irrelevant, it's the fact that we are all at risk that matters. And that's the only significance I can see in your stated fact that women expect to be raped: Because they do, the control works.The piece of information "women expect to be raped" tells us exactly that. If you ask a load of ladies to list the things that they think may happen to them in captivity (see definition above) then rape is quite high on that list. Ask the same amount of men and rape features much lower, if at all, on the list.
