Paul Elam is in a little rage this morning. He was cancelled on CNN, which I can only hope was because of me doing some dutiful tweeting and emailing yesterday. This morning he’s really butthurt and angry so he decided to call all rape victims liars unless they take it to court.
The title of his butthurt misogynist rage piece is ‘Rape accusations are all lies until proven otherwise.’ I’ll spare you the bulk of the rage post. You can read it at the archive link above.
He’s also angry at Zerlina Maxwell who wrote a great piece on why believing a rape victim was much more important than what the accused might go through. In fact, he told other MRA’s he wants to fuck her but only if she doesn’t talk. Classic misogyny right out of the sewer mouth that is Elam.
What’s hilarious about Elam’s fucknuttery is that he doesn’t even realize how a court of law works. You don’t assume the prosecutor is full of shit, which is what Elam suggests you do. By the time a rape case gets to court there’s pretty good evidence already. Elam is such an idiot.
If you notice the number of male supremacist comments on Maxwell’s article you definitely see a trend. Men are starting to understand that women aren’t going to be quiet about rape anymore and that we’re going to find ways to prosecute that are better for us.
I happen to think that the preponderance standard that colleges are now adopting should be used in criminal court since it’s so damned hard to ‘prove’ a rape charge. Male supremacists and rapists know how hard the criminal evidentiary standard is too and they count on it to continue raping women.
It’s the easy woman-blaming path to say rape victims are liars unless they bring it to court because it’s too damned hard to 1) bring to court and then 2) get a conviction. This is why MRA’s use this kind of ‘I don’t believe women unless they go to court’ rhetoric.
Elam might think this isn’t woman hating because oh the poor dear is relying on the law but the law is man-made and obviously not up to par so Elam and other MRA’s will claim it’s the only way for a woman to be believed.
The comment that stands out to me on AVFM is by the British idiot MRA Mike Buchanan of ‘Women are Whiners’ fame.
I think pieces like this will help turn rape from feminists’ #1 asset to their #1 liability.
To think rape is an asset is loopy in and of itself but it’s curious that he’d use the word liability. It IS a truthful word because what MRA’s want to do is reinforce the difficulty in reporting and convicting. They LOVE the system the way it is because it doesn’t work. This is why any woman trying to get justice isn’t going to get it and rape has been a liability for women all along.
As an extra here’s Dean Esmay claiming Zerlina throws black men under the bus while his own friend and commenter at AVFM claims that the only reason Obama won a Nobel was because he was black. Nothing like Dean Esmay making a fool of himself.
