To hear modern feminists and Leftists talk, we are living in a rape culture where rape is okay. (For more information on rape culture, feel free to check out this little ditty penned by yours truly.) But if you don’t want to read my drivel, here’s how Wikipedia defines rape culture.
In feminist theory, rape culture is a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality.
As you might have guessed, I’m not exactly sold on the concept we have a rape culture in America, what with the utter lack of a rape culture and all. Well, I have to admit I’m wrong. My crack research staff (consisting of my dog and me) found an actual case of rape culture. And it’s from a source you’d never expect.
There is a Leftist website named Wonkette that recently posted an article titled “Let’s Talk About Juanita Broaddrick.” If you haven’t read the piece, don’t. Imagine the worst ice cream headache you’ve ever had. That’s a walk in the park compared to the typical Wonkette piece.
Normally, I wouldn’t bother with it, but there was a part in the aforementioned piece that caught my eye. And by “caught my eye”, I mean it made my head spin like Linda Blair in “The Exorcist”. Here’s the part for your consideration.
To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick; that it doesn’t make him an evil man, or irredeemable (I’m Catholic; we’re all forgiven, if we’re sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize). It doesn’t even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that.
So, let me get this straight. A powerful man is alleged to have raped a woman…and it doesn’t make him evil if he apologizes? And on top of that, if he stops raping women, he can be considered a good feminist?
Feeling that worst ice cream headache feeling yet, kids?
Let’s go back to the Wikipedia definition of rape culture: a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. Let’s see…
Has the Left made rape pervasive when it comes to Bill Clinton? Given Clinton is hornier than a 13 year old boy at a brothel with a black American Express card, I would say they have.
Has the Left normalized rape when it comes to Bill Clinton? Given the Wonkette article quoted above, I would say so.
Has the Left expressed societal attitudes about gender and sexuality when it comes to Bill Clinton? Within Leftist circles, yes, yes they have.
Looks like we have a Bingo, kids! Thank you, Wonkette, for establishing once and for all there is a rape culture in America, and it’s on the Left.
