    That’s not the only fucked up thing Femen does – physically attacking sex workers as part of their protest is another: http://vimeo.com/62510968#

    So am I wrong to believe that a woman performing oral sex on an unwilling man is doing something as bad as a man performing oral sex on an unwilling woman?

    According to Mary P Koss, Nicola Gavey, Hugo Schwyzer, Soraya Chemaly and an unknown number of other feminists you are wrong. Other feminists disagrees [...]

    I haven’t accused all feminists of being perpetrators of violence against men. I have listed concrete instances of feminists minimizing and erasing male victims of rape based on their feminist ideas and theory. I have cited a reputable source finding that in every 5th rape victim alive is a man (1 in 5 = 20 [...]

    Yes, the inclusion of sexual assault with regards to people not on the gender binary is important, both in language and description, as well as access to crisis support, etc.

    What about people on the gender binary? Are both included? Or just cis straight women? Bringing up the statistics on female-on-male rape, female-on-female and any [...]

    Please read the NISVS 2010 Report before you state assumptions as if they were facts. Page 24 of the report states that 79.2% of male victims of “being made to penetrate someone else” reports a single female perpetrator . Which makes your claim that it’s usuall more than one perpetrator just plain wrong. Also your statement that [...]

    Perhaps my previous comment was a bit harsh and you just happened to not read beyond the executive summary of the NISVS 2010: I’ll quote the definition used for rape and for “being made to penetrate someone else” and then you can tell me if you agree with CDC that “being made to penetrate someone [...]

    That’s right. However, those men who were raped (made to penetrate) in 2009 are a subset of the men who were raped (made to penetrate) in their lifetime. I meant to refer to all the male victims who reported being made to penetrate someone else in my comment.

    From this I can only assume that you are on the same page as Mary P. Koss and that you don’t consider forcing a man to have unconsensual PIV/PIA/PIM sex with a woman to be rape. That’s your perogative, just as it’s mine to consider you a bigot for doing so.

    Cassidy:

    In the example you bring up of a cis woman attacking a cis man, while it’s important to recognize that it’s a relatively uncommon instance,

    Considering that NISVS 2010 Report found that every 5th rape victim alive is a man while every 2nd rape victim victimized in 2009 is a man (in the last [...]

    Even the CDC seems to have a somewhat gendered way of defining rape, it only counts if there is a penis going into your body, otherwise it is a completely different number. As much as I would hate to say it, feminist rhetoric often functions to erase rapes that don’t fit the cis-male attacking a [...]
