PSNI’s anti-rape video employs feminist narrative

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI,) have just launched a new anti-rape campaign which includes an anti-rape video.

Unsurprisingly, the video employs the feminist narrative about rape i.e  a woman can drink and dress provocatively and flirt with men and even agree to go to the home of a male stranger, but is blameless should she become the victim of rape.

Rape is an appalling crime, but some of these crimes are more serious than others and some could have been prevented if only the woman had refused to go to a male stranger’s home.

A woman who is attacked by a stranger appearing out of the shadows on a lonely stretch of road is the victim of a terrible crime, whereas, a woman who goes to a club/disco scantily-clad and drinks until she is intoxicated and flirts with men, then accompanies one to his home, and soon after cries “rape,” is not in the same category as the first example.

Yes, we know that some evil men will ply women with drink to enable them to take advantage of them, but many women don’t need to be plied with drinks, they happily become intoxicated all by themselves despite public campaigns warning about excess drinking which highlight the fact that inhibitions and resistance is lowered the more drink one consumes, and, that one makes oneself vulnerable to danger when “under the influence.”

So there is no excuse for drunkenness. Indeed we would present a case for total abstinence from alcohol, as we are teetotal.

Clothing is a language and provocatively dressed women are communicating the language of sexual looseness. As someone once said, “if you dress in the uniform of a Police Officer, you shouldn’t be surprised if people think you’re a Police Officer and, if a woman is scantily-clad and provocative in her behaviour towards men, she shouldn’t be surprised if people think she is sexually available and morally loose.

Some time ago, we heard of a retired American detective who had 17 years experience as a detective and he stated that in most of the cases of sexual assaults that he had dealt with, provocative dress was a factor.

The PSNI video we mentioned earlier (and we will provide a link so readers can view it,) makes no mention of false accusations of rape, yet there have been such cases in Northern Ireland. Again we see the feminist narrative employed i.e women are innocent and men are guilty.

Also, we note that the PSNI do not address the dangers of drink and immodesty and flirtatious behaviour which is so obvious in the women in their video.

What is the Feminist narrative about rape? The following quotes from feminists should answer that question.

“All men are rapists and that’s all they are.” Feminist author Marilyn French, “The Women’s Room.”

“Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience.”  Catherine Comins, Vassar College in Time, June 3rd, 1991, P.52

“At the University of Maryland, some female students posted the names of male students selected at random, young men about whom they knew nothing, under the heading “Potential Rapist.” The message was that all men are potential rapists, though the men actually named probably did not find much comfort in that…”   John Leo  “De-escalating the gender war”  US News and World Report, April 18th, 1994, P24.

One thought on “PSNI’s anti-rape video employs feminist narrative

  1. Your words may come back to bite you. You accuse ‘loose’ women of provoking rape just as you both provoke reaction with your words here….you are as guilty as the victims you accuse of being the enablers of their assaults.
