new wave feminism

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

over a 20-year period, asking some 2,000 men in college questions like this: “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they did not want to, because they were too intoxicated [on alcohol or drugs] to resist your sexual advances?”, or “Have you ever had sexual intercourse with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used physical force [twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.] if they didn’t cooperate?”

About 1 in 16 men answered “yes” to these or similar questions.

1 in sixteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen are you kidding me

if we got 1 in 16 motherfuckers admitting to raping women on college campuses and are “very forthcoming. In fact, they are eager to talk about their experience”, you better fucking believe tossing out your short skirt and staying in at night isn’t going to keep you safe.

Even worse:

In a survey of 11-14 year-old boys…

  • 51% believed that “forced sex” is acceptable if a boy spends a lot of money on a girl
  • 31% believed that it would be okay to rape someone with past sexual experience
  • 65% believed that sexual assault is okay if dating for more than 6 months
  • 87% believed that sexual assault is okay if the perpetrator and victim are married

…aaand in a survey of college males…

  • 1 in 12 admitted to committing rape (under the legal definition)
  • 35% admitted that they would commit rape under circumstances if they could get away with it

…and in another…

  • 43% of college-aged men admitted to using “coercive behavior” such as ignoring a woman’s nonconsent and using physical aggression
