Here is a little one-question quiz to see how much you know about the Manboobz blog:
QUESTION ONE: A man describes being raped by a woman when he was 13-years-old. Do the Manboobz regulars:
a) Respond with sympathy and support
b) Attack him and accuse him of lying about his abuse, his life experiences, and his family, then return to posting about how there is no gray area when it comes to rape and intoxication
BONUS QUESTION: True or False: Someone on Manboobz argues that no feminists ever downplay, dismiss, ignore, or marginalize male victims, and that only feminists do anything to help male victims. This same person writes this after accusing a male victim of lying about his past.
When Anthony Zarat shared his experience of being raped at 13-years-old by a woman, he summed up how much time he thinks abusers should get:
I wound never condemn a perpetrator to more than 3 years, out in 1 with full compliance, 5 on registry for simple non-consent with no additional violence or harm. This is over done, barbaric, and fundamentally un-just.
That comment prompted several responses. Myoo challenged Anthony’s “slap on the wrist” sentencing idea. Happy and Pecunium repeatedly accused him of lying about his experiences and family. Dracula accused him of not caring about men and boys.
The irony is that this happens on a thread chastising other people for attacking, victim-blaming and disbelieving a rape victim.
Granted, I do not care that plenty of feminists only pretend to care about male victims. They are not the only people who do it, and no one is actually fooled by their charade. However, they must know that they cannot complain about people trashing a rape victim and then turn around and do it themselves.
What I find truly revealing is that not one person called anyone on this. They are so wrapped up in proving that drunk men are always responsible for the actions that these feminists attack a victim a rape of without feeling guilty or admitting that they are doing just that as they self-righteously condemn the subreddit atheist posters of doing the exact same thing.
This does not happen by accident. That level of hypocrisy takes effort. It is intentional, and it is precisely because of this kind of misandrous, victim-shaming nonsense that I am not nor will ever be a feminist.
