Quote from: Munch on October 04, 2015, 02:55:30 PMOn the one hand, I agree fully with the message. In todays culture, the idea of male rape occurring, it treated with far less seriousness then any female rape case, men who report rape are more likely to be scuffed at because "that can't happen to a man, only women get raped"*snip for length*
Quote from: mauricio on October 04, 2015, 05:05:35 PMYes I agree with that. For some reason there seems to be a bias to perceive harm towards women as a greater crime (and/or to focus on it more) than towards males (wonder if it's due to decades of feminist propaganda and policy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duluth_model) or something more visceral relating to our sexual diphormism and gender roles. I just found the performance cringeworthy and the poem bad which is separate from the validity of the topic.
Quote from: Munch on October 04, 2015, 02:55:30 PMOk, maybe I've got thicker skin then most, but I watched it.
Quote from: Hijiri Byakuren on October 04, 2015, 05:55:21 PMOh don't get me wrong, I watched the whole thing, I just didn't really understand the whole over-the-top arthouse thing.
Quote from: Mermaid on October 04, 2015, 08:17:24 PM"for some reason"? Maybe because 1 in 6 women are sexually assaulted in their lifetime, and 1 in 33 men are? https://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/sexual-assault-victimsThat's "feminist propaganda"?
Quote from: GrinningYMIR on October 05, 2015, 11:08:12 AMDon't argue against men being rapists, you never win. According to the media I'm a sexist, patriarch supporting, minority smashing, homophobic nazi because I'm a white male of German descent in the lower middle class. Yup.
