We Can’t Just ‘Teach Boys Not To Rape.’ They Need A Positive Message Of Male Identity.

This is a great article on the current social media trend that claims all you have to do is “teach men not to rape.”

I wrote a piece on the Harvey Weinstein scandal yesterday. In a change of pace, some people were upset.

I’ll give you one example of a message I received:

Matt, your post was bull sh*t. I don’t need this long analysis of why Harvey Weinstein raped people. Here’s all that you as a man needs to tell your readers: DON’T RAPE PEOPLE. Instead of worrying about the “culture” and trying to use this story as an excuse to push your “values,” maybe we should just be BLAMING THE RAPISTS for rape and TEACHING MEN NOT TO RAPE. It’s not that hard. That’s all you need to say.

It’s quite clear that men aren’t allowed to participate in the discussion about rape and sexual assault except to grunt in three word sentences. “Rape is bad.” “Men shouldn’t rape.” “Blame the rapists.” Of course it’s true that rape is bad and men shouldn’t rape and we should blame the rapists. It’s so true that there’s no reason to say anything if that’s all you’re going to say. Everyone knows that rape is bad and you shouldn’t do it. Even rapists know that.  Read full article at DailyWire
