Should the rape of a woman be legal if it’s committed on a private property? Misogynist blogger Roosh V thinks so, according to Raw Story. The anti-feminist figure believes that legalizing rape on private properties would give women “learning experiences” to later make better decisions. In his mind, he believes that laws made to protect women are instead oppressing men — and he blames this for such incidents as the horrific Santa Barbara murders by Elliott Rodger. Yes, this guy is for real.
Roosh thinks American women have been coddled, and the result is negatively impacting men. The misogynist blogger believes that legalizing rape on private property will train women to protect their bodies “in the same manner that she protects her purse and smartphone.”
“After several months of advertising this law throughout the land, rape would be virtually eliminated on the first day it is applied. Consent is now achieved when she passes underneath the room’s door frame, because she knows that that man can legally do anything he wants to her when it comes to sex.”
In Roosh’s utopia, women would be rendered nothing more than objects of rape if they are in the private residence of a male — if that male so desires. They could (and in many cases, would) be subjected to any sexual act that the males want without any legal recourse. The rape apologist also believes that this will somehow drop the rape rates in the U.S.
“Such a change will provide a mature jolt to American women who have been babied for too long, who are protected and coddled as if they have no agency or intellect of their own. Let’s make rape legal. Less women will be raped because they won’t voluntarily drug themselves with booze and follow a strange man into a bedroom, and less men will be unfairly jailed for what was anything but a maniacal alley rape.”
Roosh seems to believe that droves of men are being imprisoned for little more than drunken or drugged sex. The fact of the matter is that rapists rarely see jail time for their actions. The Rape Abuse & Incest National Network reports that only three out of every 100 rapists ever see the inside of a jail cell. The other 97 rapists walk free with no repercussions for their actions — and most of them go on to re-offend.
Furthermore, most victims of rape don’t even report the incidents — and that’s probably because only one in four reports even result in arrest. The hard numbers show that women aren’t shuffling loads of men into jail as punishment for their own frivolous sexual misadventures. The statistics are already such that convey the message to rapists that they won’t be held accountable for their actions. Legalizing rape on private properties will only further separate them from their responsibilities as human beings in a civilized society.
Roosh is a notorious internet troll who has traveled the world in search of women who will sleep with him. While he’s been successful on a minimal level, his notoriety has spread worldwide — even landing him on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s extremism report in 2012. In other words, he’s on the same official documents alongside nazi groups and terrorists. The Daily Dot reports that he has no regrets, though. He sees himself as a leader for men’s rights advocacy.
