    No, dear, it was an opinion peice. And not a particularly well written one. He has an argument about semantics and gets all huffy over not having everyone agree with him. I don't care about the origin of the word, the reality is what matters.
    But since you like sciency sites (isn't that the thing with yo good ole boys down there? Or is it the opposite, I can never remember....)
    And since you seem confused about it, this is what it is about
    And some human beings seem to agree
    And since posting links to people who agree with you seems to be a thing...


    PS. I googled "**** culture research" and all of those links came up on the first page. So it's hard to see how they can be missed unless someone tries to find the opposite of information, by say googling "**** culture is a lie" and then you get links to a heap of misogynistic sites as well as ones like this. But who would do that?

    Sometimes I think you are smart, and other times I just shake my head. OK, I'll put this one down to cultural differences.

    I'm not offended, I'm pointing something out. What is the problem with me doing that? Do you want you and your society to continue down the road of ignorant bigotry? I Don't want mine to. If I WAS offended (and to be honest some of the tripe posted on here does offend me personally, but I understand the low baseline they come from, so I get over it) what would you have me do? Go to the mods (CUTE FLUFFY KITTENS. Insulting the Mods of the forums you are allowed to post in isn't the smartest move )? No, I'd rather fight my own battles against it. If your response is "shut up, your voice is not worth hearing", then guess what? You really ARE part of the problem!

    Please go and look at the definitions of **** culture as used today in the real world, and then decide how you want your daughters treated. Every time you think or say "did you see what she was wearing though". That's it right there. I've had those conversations on here as you know. It is not the girls job to control the urges of random men, or even boys she's dating. You are not animals. Stuff like this goes on until someone points it out and gets it stopped. How do a group of people think this is OK the first time they hear it? Oh, that would be the cultural context and society they grow up in. Which is the point!

    No, you're not pointing out, you're offended. You even said as much. So why must you feel the need to be offended for others? Why do you feel the need to champion made up issues?

    Show me where I criticized a race. I know I've been critical of a religion, or a culture, but those are not races.

    Seriously, show me a group of people trying to legalize ****. I can show you a pedophile culture because there is a group trying to actually make it acceptable (NAMBLA), but there is NOT a culture of **** because everyone KNOWS it is unacceptable.

    At best I said it is offensive. Racist jokes are pretty much always offensive to those who are the butt of them if they are made from a position of power. Yes, that's white guys making jokes about any other race in the US.

    It is a similar situation though. You criticise a religion or culture for what a very few of the group do. Akin to me thinking "all americans are idiots" (but worse, since a lot of you are going to vote for trump, after all.....).

    Yes, it's about power. People commit "crimes" because they think they will get away with it as well. So not to become accepted, but because it's acceptable. If you go to the Philippines, are you (not specific you) going to sit down on the beach and smoke some weed? No? How about in pre-legal days in california. Why? Could it be cultural acceptance levels? Do comedians in the Philippines joke about smoking weed quite as much as in the US? Just because you know there's nothing that would make you think **** is acceptable (your definition of ****, that is), that doesn't make it true for everyone. If only 10% of the men think **** doesn't include badgering their wife or date into sex when she's not fully into it, that is a hell of a lot of potential rapists out there.

    But again, think of your (grand)daughters.....

    Here's that 'position of power' BS. The only TRUE position of power that exists in the modern world is in wealth and political levels--where it can actually be measured. And more of it has to deal with intent than anything else. I've made 3/5ths jokes in front of black co-workers before and got a good laugh because they know it's a joke (Of course it might have also helped that one had to pull ME off of a white supremacist who tried to start **** in the club). One even quickly joked about Scandinavians sucking off the third reich (my sleeve tattoo) to which I had to give him props.

    Entirely different. You can analyze (heh, anal) a culture or religions praise or even acceptance of violence based on their texts and conclude they're a violent culture/religion. An example of this would be the White supremacist culture and their rhetoric of violence against minorities. I can conclude that they are a violent culture and be critical of that without being bigoted. If I where to call them all stupid rednecks, however, that would be because some of them are begrudgingly well educated.

    Circumlocution. **** outside of prison and maybe some far off cultures will never view **** as 'acceptable'.

    I can honestly say that I have never personally interacted with anyone (real-life or over the internet) who has even hinted at thinking that what a woman wears could justify her being raped. Given that this is one of the very frequently used examples given in favor of "**** culture", that does certainly cause a blow to its credibility from my perspective; while such people do undoubtedly exist (every once in a while, such a jackwad gets dug out from under their rock to sit in a jury or otherwise get a bit of public scrutiny), but they certainly don't even seem to be a sizeable minority.

    By contrast, I've often seen feminists hoot and howl at people who suggest that women take precautions (e.g., walking with a group) to keep them safe from getting raped, calling it "victim blaming" and saying that it "promotes **** culture"; seriously, nearly any forum thread or comment section related to that sort of discussion seems to get feminists posting that sort of nonsense, despite how it is logically no different at all from giving anti-robbery or anti-burglarly advice, which nobody construes to be blaming the victim or defending the perpetrator.

    Furthermore, I've also seen feminists extend the same **** culture argument you are putting forward here ("It's not the girls job to control the urges of random men", etc.) to victimless actions that they do provoke, most commonly complaints about getting hit on when dressing provocatively in public settings. Quite often, they even point towards it being "evidence" of **** culture, despite the complete lack of violence, intimidation, or attempted ****.

    That's also a hugely expansive definition of ****, to the extent that I'd hardly be surprised if only 10% or less of women think such situations are ****. Do you have any data supporting that the alleged victims actually feel that they were raped? Because that's been a repeated problem with the expansive definitions of **** that feminists seem to be so very fond of using -- i.e., other than hardline feminists, most people don't seem to think it's actually ****.

    Furthermore, you're treating it as if sex can only be undertaken for the sake of sex alone. That's not how relationships work. Heck, to use a completely non-sexual comparison, people might do a chore, or play Monopoly or something, despite not particularly wanting to at the time, to make their significant other happy; this doesn't necessarily mean that they feel they were forced or coerced into it, even if their S.O. asked numerous times. That's not even getting into tit-for-tat arrangements (compare to, e.g., "I'll take the trash out if you'll mow the lawn"). Why do you think this is suddenly an intrinsically different situation once sex is involved?

    FFS, I spend as much time alone as possible and even I recognize this sort of stuff as pretty fundamental portions of human interaction.

    Well, I don't know about anyone else, but other than radical feminists, I'm not a bigot. Lol

    @ Rok. I sense a huge amount of hate from you regarding ****. You need to let it go. Find forgiveness so it doesn't eat you alive.

    @Woden. In Rok's defense, (ugh) I do not believe she is referring to the "not tonight dear, I have a headache". I believe she is speaking of the exact kind of **** we all think of as ****, but from a spouse. I believe she is referring to a spouse that literally rapes their spouse/S.O. There is no other word for it than ****. Though, I could be wrong and your interpretation is correct.

    That or simply think twice before posting.

    That's twice in one thread that Mods have been insulted.

    That's also a hugely expansive definition of ****......
    Aaaand he's baaack.
    I said potential rapists. And, I also said it's about power. So a lot of your response is pointless to my argument.
    Did you read the link
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/ent...b00d9c3a1647c0 Victim blaming.....
    But, since we are into the "my personal experience...., so therefore" category. I personally know lots of women who have been raped. Some by their partners, some by strangers. Most of them would never talk about it outside of groups specifically designed to get them to talk. Certainly never to men. I know some of the men involved as well. Their mates usually know nothing about it until they are outed or convicted. Unless they are young larrikens, then they probably joined in.
    But thank you so much for your comments on the definition of what you consider ****. Since you have such wide ranging experience in the subject, I'll pop it where it belongs.

    And for both you and the poxxy one.... you don't need to think **** is acceptable to be part of the **** culture. It seems pretty obvious to me, but any attempts to dehumanize women/gays/other prisoners/insertwhatever or to victim blame is pertinent to the culture that allows **** to be such a big issue. You guys want to choose to believe it's not a problem, because to you it isn't. But you are part of the problem. Dismissing cops shooting blacks as "they deserve it" before a trial is the same sort of thing. Black = likely baddies. "It isn't really ****, because I said so", or "she shouldn't have walked home in the dark", or any other of a myriad of victim blaming comments, adds to the culture. Most rapists are never reported. If you had many close female friends you would know that. Because at least one of them would have been raped and not reported it. /Insert basement dweller insult here.

    So donnie and his recently exposed appalling comments counts as evidence. He sees women as things to use for sex. It's not as if it's a surprise. He talks about his daughter in terms of how she looks to men and dating her ffs. And you have a huge chunk of the population voting for him to be YOUR leader. How is that not screaming at you?

    PS Wodey, I flat out don't believe your first sentence. Unless you define personally interacted as being in the same room, or discussing the colour of your undies. You interact with cofc and other trolls on here.

    PPS. Good to see you still on track with the "all feminists are evil" line. I was hoping you hadn't grown out of it yet.

    PPPS. Here's a hint (in case you ever meet a woman). It doesn't matter how she's dressed. Don't hit on her. She's not doing it to please you.

    PPPPS. Cis, roughly right. Although my definition of "real" **** is probably different to yours. It certainly is to cofcs.

    I HIGHLY doubt it being a prior victim myself. I've mentioned it on here before so it's no big secret.

    I never blamed the victim, get your head out of your backside. I said there isn't a '**** culture outside of prison' which is true. Feminists ripped it off of that documentary and have been trying to make it their own since.

    Can you point out EXACTLY where I said **** isn't a problem? Because I can point out where I claimed 'epidemic' which is a more accurate description.

    Definition of epidemic

    1: affecting or tending to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals within a population, community, or region at the same time <typhoid was epidemic>

    2 a : excessively prevalent b : contagious 4 <epidemic laughter>

    3: characterized by very widespread growth or extent : of, relating to, or constituting an epidemic <the practice had reached epidemic proportions>
    That sounds pretty accurate to me.
    Whereas:

    Simple Definition of culture

    : the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular society, group, place, or time

    : a particular society that has its own beliefs, ways of life, art, etc.

    : a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business)

    This does not seem like an accurate definition. It is NOT part of our customs, arts (not in a positive light), way of life, our thoughts, beliefs, or part of the work culture.

    In that case he wasn't victim blaming. Offering suggestions to prevent **** like: Take a martial arts class, carry mace, walk with friends, is not victim blaming it's ways to keep people safe. In no way is it saying 'she deserved it because she didn't do/have those things' it is, however, saying "personal protection is paramount. Try to be safe"

    However, he has been ACTUALLY accused of **** and is on trial for it, but that didn't start until he almost won the RNC. Once he is found guilty, he would become ineligible because it is a felony.

    A) Where have I done this? Quote something to this effect from me, I dare you.

    B) Are you seriously pulling up the "victim blaming" line (without even bothering to expand on it) in response to a post where I commented that such arguments are most often used incorrectly to smear people who are not blaming the victim?

    Quote Originally Posted by Rokchick View Post

    Or, how about something that is actually close to what I said: "It isn't really ****, because nearly none of the alleged victims consider it to be ****."

    If you disagree with the last half of that statement, then feel free to correct me with some hard data, but given all of the times feminist **** definitions have been shot down by such data, I'm neither going to hold my breath nor give these grossly expanded definitions the benefit of doubt.

    Do you think that telling mugging victims (or even potential mugging victims) to not walk home in the dark is "victim blaming"? Do you think that telling (potential) burglary victims about things they could do to make their homes more secure is "victim blaming"? Do you think that telling people to install an antivirus program is "victim blaming"?

    If you do not consider those examples "victim blaming," you're a hypocrite. Not to mention completely ignorant, since I already pointed this exact same line of reasoning out in the post you are responding to.
    If you do consider those examples to be "victim blaming," well, congratulations, you're part of a tiny fringe minority of lunatics.

    Just to provide a different perspective. In Canada, there is no act in the Criminal Code called ****. What there is, is a series of increasingly serious forms of sexual assault. Here's the Canadian law, as explained by the website of a police department in a major Canadian city.

    What is Sexual Assault?

    Sexual Assault is defined as an assault of a sexual nature that violates the sexual integrity of the victim. The Supreme Court of Canada held that the act of sexual assault does not depend solely on contact with any specific part of the human anatomy but rather the act of a sexual nature that violates the sexual integrity of the victim. When investigating a sexual assault, there are certain relevant factors to consider:

    The part of the body touched
    The nature of the contact
    The situation in which the contact occurred
    The words and gestures accompanying the act
    All other circumstances surrounding the act
    Any threats that may or may not be accompanied by force

    The victim of the sexual assault can be man or woman and the attacker can be of the same sex as the victim. A spouse may be charged with sexual assault upon the other spouse.

    Punishment

    Everyone who commits a sexual assault is guilty of

    An indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years or
    An offence punishable on summary conviction and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding eighteen months

    Sexual Assault With a Weapon/Threats to a Third Party/Causing Bodily Harm Section 272

    Every person commits an offence who, in committing a sexual assault

    Carries, uses or threatens to use a weapon or an imitation of a weapon
    Threatens to cause bodily harm to a person other than the complainant
    Causes bodily harm to the complainant, or
    Is a party to the offence with any other person
    Punishment

    Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) is

    Guilty of an indictable offence and liable
    Where a firearm is used in the commission of the offence, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years and to a minimum punishment of imprisonment for a term of four years and
    in any other case, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years

    Aggravated Sexual Assault Section 273

    Every one commits an aggravated sexual assault who

    In committing a sexual assault
    Wounds, maims, disfigures or endangers the life of the complainant
    Punishment

    Every person who

    Commits an aggravated sexual assault
    Is guilty of an indictable offence and liable
    Where a firearm is used in the commission of the offence, to imprisonment for life and to a minimum punishment of imprisonment for a term of four years and
    In any other case, to imprisonment for life

    Consent means the voluntary agreement of the complainant to engage in the sexual activity in question.

    No consent is obtained when:

    The agreement is expressed by the words or conduct of another person other than the victim (complainant)
    The complainant is incapable of consenting to the activity
    The accused (by abusing a position of trust, power or authority) induces the complainant to engage in the act
    The complainant expresses by words or conduct a lack of agreement to engage in the act or
    The complainant, having consented to engage in the sexual activity, expresses (by words or conduct) a lack of agreement to continue to engage in the activity
    http://www.edmontonpolice.ca/Communi...alAssault.aspx


    Feel free to discuss. I'm curious about the reactions of various posters here to the legal position in Canada.
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    I do not like
    An indictable offense and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years
    Maximum limits are bogus. People, in history, have done some heinous **** to one another and to think that person should be allowed back on the streets after 10 years is baffling.
    I do like
    The victim of the sexual assault can be man or woman and the attacker can be of the same sex as the victim. A spouse may be charged with sexual assault upon the other spouse.
    It wasn't until 2012 that we broadened the law to include men whereas before it was only unwanted physical penetration of a female.
    As much as I hate to reference a TV show, Law and Order SVU touched on this subject early in their run and how a male dancer was handcuffed and was forced to penetrate the party girls but since the laws only defined it as an act on a woman it was thrown out. In reality assault and kidnapping charges might have stuck, but it was an interesting way to bring that issue to light.

    A skinhead group did the same, as well. (cannot post link due to their tattoos)
    Add to this the Armed people who intimidated Brock Turner and how slow the police where to respond to it. If we really lived in a "**** culture" why is it that people regard these vigilantes as 'heroes' and 'angels'?
    Also: In Montana repeat sex offenders can be sentenced to death, regardless of the age of the victim. (Code Ann. sec. 45-5-503) Personally, I think this law should be federal. Considering rapists have the highest rate of re-offense, a second convictions should net them the death penalty.
    So I ask again: How is it a "culture" when it's so vehemently opposed?

    I'm a bit curious about this one. From the wording, I can't tell if it means that it becomes sexual assault if the sex continues after such, or if it retroactively makes the entire sexual encounter into sexual assault.

    One of your own links disagrees with you:
    http://www.ktuu.com/content/news/Man...389097252.html
    A study by the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center of sex offenders released from Alaska corrections facilities in 2001 found that non-sex offenders were more likely to be rearrested than sex offenders.

    Also, unrelated note, but why am I not surprised that Rok hasn't responded to getting called on her bull in this thread, despite having been online at least once in the time since?

    Sadly, you have a point.
    http://www.smart.gov/SOMAPI/sec1/ch5_recidivism.html
    Even with the fact that many rapes are not accounted for, the rates of re-offense is lower than what I heard back in the early 2000s (something like 75%).
    Still, 31% chance to **** again over 15 years is high. I'm comfortable with removing them from the world.

It will change, but only because it is forced by things like the **** culture discussion. You might not agree with it, but even you will notice things more because of it.
    And if it's reported the public goes on a witch hunt to "correct" these people. Sometimes through violence or pressuring the judge. Again: I point out the BS with Brock Turner and the people who hung around his house with guns and kinda, sorta, but not directly threatened his life. Also: the cops complete lack of a reply for so long.

    This looks like they read too much into "I flirted with him" or the kids are butthurt over girls flirting with them at bars for free drinks before ditching out. (Literally, if I had a dollar for every time I heard someone whine about girls flirting I could buy a yacht.) Not that this excuses their ignorance, but I hope you see why now.

    nd you know what woden? The law is not written in stone. The Canadians are more advanced in many things. And one of the most obvious is the caliber of their leader.
    The ONLY comment about men being raped has been when I applauded Canada for being progressive and how it took the US until recently to recognize it. I will go one further and I think it didn't even count gay or lesbian ****.

    We have a culture (that is slowly changing) that constantly has women being sexually objectified pretty much everywhere, that has judges feeling okay with doling out minimal sentences to people who've committed sexual assault, that has politicians comfortable suggesting **** victims should have kept their legs closed, that protects sports stars and coaches who commit sexual assault, etc, etc, etc.

    Just because people speak out against it, doesn't mean that we don't still live in a culture that too often tries to explain away, legitimize or lessen the seriousness of ****.

    Victim blaming, while atrocious, isn't acceptance.

    Just because people TRY to explain it away doesn't mean it's part of our culture. Also: victim blaming isn't 'legitimizing' it is blame shifting, though. But it does not mean they're trying to make it legitimate.

    Also:
