Feminist author : ‘Rape not a violent crime’, should be viewed as ‘lazy and bad sex’

Noted Feminist, Germaine Greer, author of ‘The Female Eunuch’ and ‘Shakespeare’s Wife’ has stirred up a controversy with her insensitive remarks on rape. According to Greer, rape is not a “spectacularly violent crime” and should be viewed as “lazy, careless and insensitive”. She said that a fitting punishment for rapists might be 200 hours of community service and an ‘r’ tattoo on his body.

The feminist said, according to The Guardian, “Most rapes don’t involve any injury whatsoever,” before going on to add, “We are told that it is a sexually violent crime, an expert like Quentin Tarantino will tell us that when you use the word rape you’re talking about violence, a throwing them down… it is one of the most violent crimes in the world. Bullshit Tarantino.”

Greer asserted that rape is not the violent act as it is described to be but something much more mundane. She said it’s more like “bad sex … where there is no communication, no tenderness, no mention of love.” She further said that society wanted women to believe that rape destroyed them. “We haven’t been destroyed, we’ve been bloody annoyed is what we’ve been.”

Feminists in Western countries have been going off the edge a bit too often of late. Recently, the Rhode Island chapter of the Women’s March split off from the national organization after one of its leaders failed to denounce anti-semitic remarks made by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The Women’s March was led by a woman who went on to urge American Muslims to wage Jihad against the Trump administration, although clarifying profusely later on that she meant only peaceful nonviolent dissent. Madonna at the same Women’s March claimed that she has “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” clarifying later on that she only meant it as a metaphor. Then there was the case of a man called ‘Hugh Mungus’ who was accused of sexual harassment by a girl after she asked him his name.

Feminists appear to believe a lot of unverified claims and hold some pretty incredulous beliefs. For instance, an overwhelming majority of the feminists believe in the ‘Gender Wage Gap’ and believe that women are paid less than men for the same work and attribute the cause to Patriarchy. However, it is patently untrue as the wage gap is revealed only in the average earnings of all men and women working full time and does not account for critical factors such as differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. Feminists also appear to believe that gender is a social construct, contrary to all scientific evidence, with some even claiming that biological sex does not exist.
