“Rape” has in my lifetime degenerated from a crime encompassing only the most severe kinds of sexual coercion, to no coercion at all. This profound expansion of the legal concept of rape must reasonably and perhaps inevitably occasion an equally profound reassessment of the sympathy we afford victims of “rape.” This reevaluation of victimhood due to rape is lagging, I presume, only because the feminist-corrupted definition has yet to sink in with most people. The public scrutiny of rape law generated by the accusations and extradition process surrounding Julian Assange is therefore a welcome contribution to the Men’s Rights Movement. While I sympathize with Assange’s predicament, one could scarcely hope for a better exposition of feminist rape law reform. The rape accusations levied against him by Anna Ardin, Sofia Wilen and the feminist state of Sweden are so patently absurd that you do not have to be an MRA to realize this is a frivolous witch-hunt even if he is guilty as charged. Some bare modicum of sanity will suffice. Today we have it from the horse’s mouth that the definition of rape hounding Julian Assange is institutionalized and entrenched throughout European justice, not just in Sweden. So if you support Assange and also believe the law should apply equally to all men, then you must agree that there is something seriously wrong with current rape law, as reformed by feminists.
It is my pleasure to cite the full text of the latest judgment, which at great length explains that rape law as applied in this case is par for the course in England and all over Europe. In England and Wales, the Sexual Offenses Act of 2003 established rape as intentional penetration of a vagina without consent, and consent is defined as agreeing by choice with the freedom and capacity to make the choice. English rape law is thus at least as extreme as the Swedish version (where coercion is apparently still part of the definition), which means the requirement of dual criminality is satisfied and Assange is to be extradited.
Court cases are often decided more by a climate of opinion rather than the wording of the law itself. The hateful wave of radical feminism sweeping Europe is so powerful, it overrides the varying local definitions and has men uniformly tried and convicted based on the radical feminist definition of rape. Norway, for example, is more extreme than the norm insofar as mens rea is abolished, but we still technically define rape as sex accomplished by some manner of force or coercion, (though this can be as light as e.g. threatening to spread a rumor about a woman), unless the woman is unconscious or otherwise unable to resist. Even so, the Assange judgment asserts that feminism is so impetuous, the trend is to bring charges against men based on feminist ideology even when the law is insufficient. This explains the logical incoherence of defining rape as sex obtained by force/threat yet not requiring resistance from the woman, which is done here in Norway. We might as well ignore the letter of the law and acknowledge the fact that feminist ideology is so pervasive it trumps everything. Fighting feminist law reform with attempted reversal of that reform is thus a futile endeavor, and MRAs must instead mount a resistance external to legislation. An overarching purpose of the feminist police states of Europe is explicitly to “tackle attrition” in rape accusations by whatever means necessary, the law or innocence be damned, and based on an absurd de facto definition of rape by which the essential element is simply lack of consent.
So there you have it. Those who still equate rape with actually being forced to sex, wake up and smell the odious feminist cunt commanding your local police force. Based on this definition of rape, what to think of the “victims” is self-explanatory. Women cannot have their panacean definition of rape and sympathy at the same time. Something has to break. However, even if we arrive at the point where “rape victims” receive nothing but ridicule from the general public (much like Anna and Sofia are getting at the moment), the feminist police state will grind on and destroy innocent men’s lives. As the definition of rape has been expanded to absurdity, sentencing for convicted rapists has perversely increased at the same time, and due process is also constantly besieged. To MRAs this can only mean war.
I look forward to the next chapter in the Assange saga, which will expose more human-rights abuses in the sick joke that is the Swedish justice system. It shall be especially satisfying to have the Swedish travesty of conducting rape trials in secret exposed to the world, because no matter what definition of rape you subscribe to, such a fundamental denial of due process is universally appalling to civilized people.
