Rape Culture Carping

Submitted by Olivia on Mon, 2017-03-27 05:38

Emma Sulkowicz toting that bale
in protest of her fictive rape.
Performance "art" at its nadir.
A few years ago, when my 90 year old grandmother was still alive, I told her to make sure she kept her ground floor windows shut to discourage any intruders so that she wouldn’t get raped. “Pfft!” she sniffed, then smiled. “Chance would be a fine thing!”Did she want to be raped?

Of course not, it’s called a sense of humour. Sadly, the peecee social engineers don’t have one, and listening to them try to engineer a public perception of a rape culture defining New Zealand is just tedious – and dangerous.

It’s particularly dangerous to men and boys.

I will say right at the outset of this piece that in my eyes rape is a heinous, brutal crime. If any male raped one of my loved ones, male or female, I’d want to kill them with anything I could get my hands on, and probably would. There are no excuses for that evil deed (though if some little hussy pulled her panties down in front of a horny man and bent over the table saying “comeon” – followed by, “no, just kidding,” I would probably consider it a mitigating circumstance).

In the aftermath of a couple of Wellington boys making the statement on social media: “If you don’t take advantage of a drunk girl, you are not a Wellington College boy,” precipitating a much media-hyped protest, I think those comments can be safely relegated to the world of edgy humour - much like my grandmother’s comment.

No rape was committed, no young girl’s life was ruined and I certainly hope the young lads who have been humiliated also have not had their youth spoiled.

Nicola Gavy: Academic enemy
of embedded reason and normalcy and the Self, 
one of countless foot soldiers prepared
to subvert your child’s mind
Some University of Auckland psychology professor named Nicola Gavey drew some typically ridiculous long bows from this incident. In a recent NZ Herald article, she was quoted as saying this: “The thing with rape culture, is that it is embedded. We are socially training young people by setting up a gender hierarchy where, put simply, men are on top and women are on the bottom. We don't examine this and we don't think about the ways we are creating it right from kindergarten."

Ladies and gentlemen, feminist professors like Nicola Gavey are the reason why your lovely daughter went into a New Zealand university a normal, good-natured girl but came out an angry, complaining little minx with blue hair and a boulder on her shoulder. Gavey believes “our everyday behaviour creates a culture where acts of male aggression and entitlement are normalised to such an extent that it's easier to cross the line.”

Apparently in NZ, from kindergarten, the royal ‘we’ are all training our sons to act entitled, aggressive and superior to women. This is embedding a culture of rape in our children’s future. Ye gods, this is the stinking poop they are teaching at our universities. Is there any difference between these statements and the “all men are rapists” attitudes of Marilyn French styled feminism?

I’ll tell you what aggressive entitlement looks like... girls like Emma Sulkowicz. a.k.a “Mattress Girl” who probably went into Columbia University a normal and good natured girl before Professors like Gavey got a hold of her mind.

Emma accused a young man and fellow student named Paul Nungesser of raping her. Due to believing the feminist invented nonsense of a university rape culture, Columbia University supported Miss. Sukowicz and allowed her to carry a cumbersome mattress around with her every where she went on campus, a performance art display to protest “carrying the weight’ of being raped by a lad who was not automatically expelled. She claimed that Nungesser had anally raped her, violently choked her and smacked her about the head. News media, social media and every other form of media under the sun obsessed about this story.

Nungesser, who always protested his innocence, had to complete his college degree under the intense scrutiny of the university’s investigation into the case – with the whole of America (and the world) watching and judging.

After opening a second rape crisis centre, as well as forcing compulsory “sexual respect” workshops on all Columbia students, Columbia University found that Miss. Sulkowicz made the whole thing up. She was not expelled. After being exonerated, Nungesser brought a law suit against Columbia University for abetting Miss. Sukowicz in her highly dramatic and internationally publicised lie, which frankly ruined his life at college. He did not win.

This case is not isolated, a whole slew of university rape accusations erupted around this time, remember the Rolling Stone article “A Rape on Campus”? It falsely reported a gang rape at the University of Virginia, claiming they were all in the thrall of a burgeoning rape culture. These assertions are the handiwork of gender obsessed feminists, for whom - and I’ll never know why, men represent some insidious, ever present threat.

There is no rape culture in NZ outside of gangland. That is not to say that boys and girls do not get raped, they do (and it makes me utterly sick that some bastards get away with it).

What does exist ubiquitously in the lives of our young people though (and it is not anything new) is a revoltingly cheap “hook up” culture, often accompanied by drugs, booze and oversexed baseness (these are the grandchildren of the Baby Boomer generation after all). The sex at least is mostly consensual, but an accusation of rape can follow from a girl who feels sexually used, or taken for granted, and who seeks to inflict some measure of vengeance (like in the case of Mattress Girl). By the time some of these girls even get to the tender age of twenty they’ve been on a hook up carousel of being screwed and dumped, screwed and dumped more times than the number of years they’ve been alive.

If the adult generation want to get to insightful discussions with young people about sex culture, they would be better off guiding them to develop a strong, authentic, tenacious Self to combat the pervasive pressure of constantly “appearing cool” - or worse - “pleasing,” in the eyes of their peers. Romantic love can be a minefield to navigate even as an adult, let alone a young person. What business ought teenagers to have with sharing themselves physically and intimately with another person when they are yet to develop a defined individual Self to share?

I just got tapped on the shoulder by the ghost of my dear grandmother – she just threw open the ground floor windows of her mansion in heaven before heading off to bed and she’s calling me old fashioned. (Just kidding... there’s no way she would’ve made it to heaven.)

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

News from the Southern Cross

It is with pleasure that I publish here another guest column by Olivia Pierson.  I have retained  the original spellings and syntax  in her column. The illustrations and extra links are my contributions. Please do visit  her blogsite, and Solo.

By Olivia Pierson

The beautiful Somali born ex Muslim, ex right-wing-Dutch-politician-come-American, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is coming to speak to Australians and New Zealanders.

Being a much ruder culture than we Kiwis, Ozzies have already started to protest Hirsi Ali’s arrival using Australian Muslim women academics, business owners (and of course Diversity Peddlers) as spokeswomen. They even have a little on-line petition. You can read it here.

The message of this petition is laughable. Its dishonesty and hypocrisy are so palpably “on the page” I almost cringed on their behalf. The powerful Hirsi Ali is just so intellectually superior to these women that I don’t think she has anything much to worry about – except for the usual death threats, but then, as an ex Muslim female with a very persuasive voice, she’s used to those.

The group claim that their disappointment in having Hirsi Ali come to speak in Australia is “reflective of the huge diversity of opinion amongst Australian Muslim women. Although we are not a homogenous group, we are united in our condemnation of Hirsi-Ali's discourse which is grounded in hate-mongering and bigotry.”

The petition has 348 signatories so far - in a country of 23 million people where about half a million identify as Muslim, they can’t even rustle up 0.1% from their “huge diversity of opinion amongst Australian Muslim women.” Not that I'm complaining.

Really Lovees, just go home and be quiet. Hirsi Ali is coming and she is going to blow your backward religion verbally to kingdom-not-coming-for-you. The most enjoyable part is that she will do this as she always does, eloquently, prettily, cleverly, without ever raising her beautiful, sonorous voice. She will crisply slice your 7th Century superstition to pieces – just as her Muslim family members once held her down and sliced off her genitals with scissors and no anaesthetic.

Like all Muslim-flavoured protestors, this group are supremely anti the great Western value of free-speech - unheard of in their own (or their parents') countries of origin. This value is the only reason that these autocratic little Jezebels are allowed to speak. The petition states:

“Hirsi-Ali’s sheer presence in Australia undermines both intra and inter-community efforts toward social cohesion and in providing platforms for Muslim women to champion their own causes.”

Take a note of that (within all the intra, inter, social cohesion, platform weasel wordery) - they view Hirsi Ali's “sheer presence in Australia” as a threat. Never mind that we have to breathe the very same planetary air as the likes of these sneaky vixens, who want the benefits of our cultural gifts, like capitalism & freedom, yet seek to culturally destroy our values as they set about thriving off them.

Not on my watch – nor Hirsi Ali’s obviously. And why do Muslim women need to champion their own causes in Western lands – the lands of freedom and tolerance? In this multicultural day and age, who stops them from doing anything they want to do? Nobody. Only their co-religionists would aggress them enough to warrant this nonsense about “championing their own causes.” They are pointing their irrelevant fingers at fake oppressors. It is either a twisted psychological projection inflicted via Stockholm Syndrome, or it’s a blatant deception.

Either way, they are not telling the truth.

Whenever Muslim activists start this kind of chatter the term 'Islamophobia' will always be bandied about. Frankly, an overwhelming proportion of Muslims are Infidelphobes and it's about time they are called on it. Hirsi Ali is a very high-profile victim of their Infidelphobia. The undersigned women of the petition have put their names to sloppy sentiments like this:

“Hirsi-Ali stated recently, 'Violence is inherent in Islam – it’s a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder.' This is just one example of the vitriol frequently espoused by this individual. Against a backdrop of increasing global Islamophobia, Hirsi-Ali's divisive rhetoric simply serves to increase hostility and hatred towards Muslims.”

How many news items recently have you seen or read where Westerners are slaying Muslims as they innocently go about their daily business? About two in ten years – one in Norway, one in Canada.
How many news items recently have you seen or read where Muslims are slaying Westerners as they innocently go about their daily business? What’s that? .. you’ve lost count? Exactly. Hapless harpies such as these women are trying to flip the facts because they know Hirsi Ali is right. They do lend their heartfelt endorsement to a violent, nihilistic, destructive, murderous cult of death and slavery.

For those who like to buy the ludicrous idea that these evils have nothing to do with Islam, read the Koran and Hadiths (the biographies about Mohammad founding their religion), then read the history of the Ottomon Empire and the fall of Constantinople. Better yet, read the conquest of Hindu/Buddhist India by Islam - 400 years of genocide, rape and slavery - exactly what we have seen been dished out by ISIS & Al Qaeda.

This is not the religion being hijacked by a few bad eggs, it is the religion itself as set forth by its prophet Mo. Behold what a brutal 7th Century religion looks like in the 21st Century when it has failed to undergo a Reformation encouraged by a Renaissance.

Islamic violence and terror in Western Democracies has grown meteorically in the last 20 years precisely because Islamophobia is not in play. Political correctness has demanded that everybody fawn over this Iron Age theocracy pretending it’s “the religion of peace” – oh God! How’s that for trying to pull a fast one?! There’s more deceit going on here than a Hillary Clinton charity event – one asks how do these people get away with such boldface perfidy?

These mendacious women end their petitioning words with “Australia deserves better than this.”

Au contraire! Australia and New Zealand are damn lucky to be hosting a speaker as poignant on the world stage as Ayaan Hirsi Ali happens to be. She has fought tirelessly and bravely for years to expose the creeping evils which Islamic culture is importing into the West, via the multiculturalist zealots. For all the years since the murder of her friend and colleague, who was stabbed to death in a Dutch street, film maker Theo Van Gogh, she has lived under a fatwa - violent fundamentalists count it a duty to Allah to murder her, resulting in a full time security detail. Why don’t the Westernised Muslima shriekers ever address this fact if their religion is so unimpeachably peaceful?

To hear Ayaan Hirsi Ali speak, go here.
