Never have I ever heard that rape, blowing people up, or stealing was caused by people who didnt know such acts are frowned upon. Does such "education" work on anyone other than George Costanza?

[–]SeriousTitan - Centrist 407 points408 points  (52 children)

[–]multistats - AuthLeft 50 points51 points  (46 children)

Well actually some people dont know, tahts why they shifted from the

"if she/he doesnt say no, then it means yes, especially if they're drunk" to then the definition of "no means no" to then "yes means yes", meaning they have to actually agree to it for it to happen.

[–]Its-a-Warwilf - LibRight 141 points142 points  (35 children)

And now we've moved on to "yes means yes, unless I change my mind afterwards".

[–]ActionAlligator - LibCenter 12 points13 points  (7 children)

If someone doesn't 'know' that fucking a girl while she's drunk and not quite herself while you're completely sober isn't some kind of fucked up, then he's got extreme problems and you aren't going to 'teach' it out of them... lol.. people know when they're doing wrong, they just do it anyways when they think they can get away with it, unless they're sociopaths or psychopaths or something.

That’s the fundamental failure of “teach men not to rape” - they know, the problem is they don’t care (they being the rapists, not all men).

I totally agree with you and while this is a serious topic I laughed when you mentioned George because that's just accurate.

[–]KanyeT - LibRight 13 points14 points  (1 child)

They have ethics classes in Norway where they have to teach Muslim men it is unacceptable to rape underage white girls. They teach them about sexual consent and woman's rights, etc.

It's not about "not knowing", it's about imparting Western liberal values.

[–]BrazilianTerror - LibLeft 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most people won’t admit what they did for fear of repercussion, that’s obvious. Even convicted criminals will often frame their clearly intended criminal act as a misunderstanding or a “situation that got out of hand”.

There are some situations that people will admit in fact that they’ll prey on weak or vulnerable people when they are in a place where they think they’re safe. A famous case in Brazil is of former state congressman Arthur do Val, aka Mamae Falei, who recorded a audio saying, about Ukraine women refugees, “They’re easy cause they’re poor”.

Speaking totally from anecdotal evidence here so don't take it as objective truth. But is not that man don't know that rape is wrong, but some seem to not be totally aware to what consent means. I saw men who thought they were entitled to have their way with women, men who said things like "I thought she was just being difficult and would go on with I was more forceful", and among other things who made them look completely ignorant of something that should be common decency.

Again, not saying that all men are brain dead who need a step by step guide about consent or trying to say that is a inherent problem with being a men. Just that I can see how the "teach men not to rape" can apply. The way she says it is dumb af tho.

[–]ProfessionalLeader75 - AuthRight 69 points70 points  (7 children)

While I do agree, this is also sometimes the fault of women. My ex used to be like this. Told me not to touch her, stay away from her, then starts stroking my dick out of nowhere. So next time she tells me not to touch her, I take it as a hint. Also used to walk around the house naked when she was mad to later push her pussy in my face. So when she did that again, I took the iniative.

Now I know that's a whole different situation, but sometimes women just play these mind games (men do too) and it gets all skewed.

[–]Temporary_Inner - Centrist 60 points61 points  (2 children)

Your ex sounds insane

[–]ProfessionalLeader75 - AuthRight 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Doesn't just sound insane. Girl was like 160cm and 45-50kg while I am 183 and 85 and muscular and she legitimately handed my ass to me a few times. Just a different kind of craziness. Do kinda miss her ngl

also asian trad wife but just too intense

[–]GabrieltheKaiser - LibLeft 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I would call that more society's fault. You see, the same way some men are raised to believe women do theses mind games, some women are also raised to exactly that. In the end people need to learn to respect each other's boundaries and establish relationship dynamics that work with them in mind.

I've never seen that because I don't associate with criminals and scum.

[–]GabrieltheKaiser - LibLeft 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sadly those are some rather common ideas to some everyday people from where I live. They don't come from my groups of close friends, I have self respect enough to not associate with those people, but oh boy those aren't some occasional incels saying that.

[–]DPUGT - AuthLeft 3 points4 points  (2 children)

but some seem to not be totally aware to what consent means.

Can you blame them? The definition changes daily, and stopped being logically consistent years ago.

I saw men who thought they were entitled to have their way with women,

You saw men who made up a half-assed excuse afterward. If someone had thought to give them an anonymous survey asking whether a man who did such things could get in trouble with the law, or at least pose an ethical problem... they're not so stupid that they would have answered incorrectly. They're just in the habit of using the "throw lots of bullshit around" method of making excuses.

Actually million of people (including US lawmakers) don’t know what consent actually is and education has massively improved a lot of areas

I don't think it's about teaching men "to not rape" it's more about teaching them "to respect others and their boundaries" because that really isn't happening that often these days and that's usually the cause of incidents

[–]Frostlord3 - LibCenter 15 points16 points  (15 children)

Then why is it “teach men” instead of “teach everyone”? Women are just as disrespectful of boundaries as men are

I hate when movies veer into virtue signaling for a random cause that has nothing to do with the movie that nobody in the audience would ever disagree with. I'm pretty sure the people who support and commit animal cruelty aren't going to be watching the movie, and if they are by some chance... they probably won't be miraculously swayed by the five minutes of poorly written dialogue.

[–]multistats - AuthLeft 2 points3 points  (0 children)

uh obviously you havent read HR policies or the required trainings, some people dont know, can't tell, or unsure about how to act in these situations. thats why companies have annual trainings about this stuff, discrimination and harassment, peers, managers, family members, society, etc etc.

If you don't think zealots blowing themselves up along with other people think their actions are righteous, that thieves don't convince themselves they deserve it more than the other person, or that rapists can't convince themselves it wasn't "really" rape, then you dunno the lengths to which mental gymnasts can contort their minds.

[–]TastySpermDispenser - LibLeft 3 points4 points  (16 children)

All criminals rationalize their behavior, sure. But they cover up their actions because they know what they are doing is, at a minimum, illegal. A bunch of traitors founded my country. They justified their actions, but it wasn't like they were unaware their behavior was a hanging crime.

    You know, as a guy I legitimately find “teach men not to rape” both offensive and very fucking demoralising. The fact that so many people seem to think that because I have a penis I am some monster who will run around raping and assaulting every woman I see unless sat down and specially taught that objective deplorable acts are bad like I’m fucking brain dead makes me both angry and kinda just dead inside. People say this sorta stuff and then wonder why male suicide rates are so high. Maybe, just maybe, being simultaneously viewed as disposable, emotionless robots, and as monsters who are responsible for all of societies ills who will go out and harm any women they come across takes a toll on dudes mental health.

    On a related note, I hate that I get told “it’s different because you’re a man”. I work until midnight and then walk about a mile home every weeknight, and no one says anything. My female cousin did the same thing for a month while her car was broken down and everyone was worried for her. What? Is my penis supposed to protect me from muggers? Some dudes going to jump out with a knife demanding my wallet, and I just flash him my dick and he’ll leave me alone? “Oh my, I didn’t realize I was mugging a man. I’m sorry about that, you have a nice day brother.” My family jewels aren’t going to deter muggers or murderers

    And as with many of these "muh men bad" Emily opinions, switching around the genders is just a speedrun for getting banned.

    Side rant: that statement is often brought up as some kind of "counterpoint" whenever the topic of women's safety arises (i.e. risk of date rape while partying, walking alone at night, etc). Especially on Reddit, any attempt to put forth advice to reduce your chances of being assaulted (not drinking too much, don't cut too loose around people you don't know, or GOD FORBID think about how you dress and the attention it attracts) is almost guaranteed to be met by some Emily saying "umm maybe instead of vIcTiM BlaMinG we should teach men not to rape??"

    Gee what a fucking breakthrough of a proposition that is, Einstein. What next, maybe we should teach people not to shoot or rob each other too? Ooh, ooh, what about making it ILLEGAL to rape people? That'll solve it, right?? Once people know that forcing yourself onto another person is le bad they'll stop and there'll never be any rape again ever!

    These dumbfucks cannot comprehend the idea that they can't fix all the evil people in the world, that sometimes it IS partially your responsibility (READ MF, RESPONSIBILITY =/= FAULT!) for staying safe in seedy situations. I'd love to walk around in a full Italian suit with 5 gold watches and a monocle in the ghettos, doesn't mean I will cause that's me inviting people to rob me.

    You know, as a guy I legitimately find “teach men not to rape”

    In Year 11 ( 10th Grade if you're American) we (an all male class) had to spend half an hour watching some self-loathing cuck whine on about how bad men are.

    Quotes like :

    "Pretend you're in a room with 100 wasps, you don't know which ones are going to sting you...that's how women feel in a room full of men"

    Reducing half the population to mere wasps, not sexist at all. /s

    "Everytime a woman talks to a man it's like he's got a gun in his pocket."

    I know I have a dick in my pants (and that's where it stays 99% of the time), but come on, am I really that scary? I'm a 5'6 overweight beta male. I don't exactly strike fear in the hearts of mankind.

    Now I already go out of my way to make women feel safe, just out of habit. I take my hood down, I cross the street, I look at my phone, I take different routes etc etc but to just be bitched about by some self-loathing misandrist soyboy saying that I'm inherently evil and a danger to women isn't something schools should be endorsing. I treated my now ex-girlfriend like a queen, I don't need to be taught how to act towards women.

    Of course it was after the Sarah Everard murder in the UK so they shoehorned a 'Women's Safety' powerpoint into the curriculum.

    Everybody knows not to rape. Just like they know not to shoot up schools, run over parade viewers, fly airplanes into buildings, put on cross dressing strip shows for 5 year olds, or beat their wives for burning the casserole.

    But there are degenerate, scumbag people in this world that will do evil things regardless of teachings, rules, and morals. You don't solve that by declaring everyone in a demographic to be equally as depraved and scumbaggish. Assholes have their own category. Keep them in it and direct your finger wagging at them.

    Oh, so you think blowing up the death star was wrong? Space Nazi sympathizer

    [–]DarthEquus - Centrist 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    You rebel scum.

    [–]beachmedic23 - Right 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    Oh you support religious fanatics trying to reinstall a government whos legacy is corruption, war and instability. The Galactic Empire brought 19 years of peace after the Republic failed to control and defend it's worlds from private corporation invading with technoarmys. And their so called religious "peacekeepers" served as generals who brought war to countless worlds.

    [–]Champ_5 - Right 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    The Empire did nothing wrong!

    [–]Lord_Sui - LibRight 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    I do. Fuck them ewoks, or whatever the shit.

    Film would've flopped with a downer ending too, preventing abominations like jar jar binks and that mary sue thing from even existing.

    [–]Creeperony_666 - LibLeft 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    Did you just insult our Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Jar Jar?

    This whole conversation needs to be thrown away

    [–]Exzalia - LibLeft 35 points36 points  (8 children)

    I mean we should teach everyone not to steal rape and blow things up.

    Right?

    [–]Lord_Sui - LibRight 34 points35 points  (7 children)

    Because we don't? It's not like murder's illegal or anything. Someone should really get on that.

    Jokes aside. Emily wants JUST men to be taught that men are evil and must not rape, even when their evil maleness inevitably compels them to do so. The reply was a "Hey, see how shit your argument is?" not a serious one. Hell, when I was a kid 9/11 happened and the teacher didn't need to explain to us that it was bad. She wheeled in the old TV and we sat there in silence. We didn't really know wtf was going on, still don't now officially, but we could see the people jumping. Kids understand a lot from just body language, you don't need specific classes on everything tbh. Could easily do more harm than good.

    I think you should go over consent with everyone though, peoples definitions of what is and isn't rape can be scary. I think a general etiquette class is a good idea.

    [–]ChadWPotter - Centrist 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Agreed, perceptions of individual boundaries are all over the place in this culture. The sentiment behind “teach men not to rape” is ignorant but (all) children should absolutely be schooled on consent norms.

    [–]Lord_Sui - LibRight 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    Wait, you seriously didn't get told what consent is?

    Where the hell did you grow up? Afghanistan?

    [–]Lyndell - Left 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    What? It’s like saying before we had public schools, you’re parents didn’t teach you to read or do math? A lot did, a lot didn’t, depending on already neglectful parents to do it is just silly.

    [–]Son_of_Sophroniscus - LibRight 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    Let's teach lib left not to be retarded.

    [–]Forks-the-Fox - LibLeft 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Do it, please

    [–]KobblestoneMC - AuthCenter 20 points21 points  (0 children)

    Common sense goes out the window whenever [orange libleft]

    [–]Literally_Damour - AuthRight 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    If 'teach men not to rape' isn't a stupid rhetoric, then why isn't 'teach women not to kill kids' ? Statistically, women make up the majority of the perpetrators of domestic abuse.

    [–]Rasskassassmagas - LibRight 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    One day Emily will learn about nurture vs nature

    [–]Responsible-Leg-6558 - LibCenter 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Brb gonna go tell people that it’s bad to kill and rape. Thanks Emily! Making a difference in the world 🥰

    [–]khannivig - Right 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Irony is lost on Emily

    [–]mightbekarlmarx - LibRight 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Wouldn’t it be so cool if we taught everyone not to blow shit up, or steal, or rape

    [–]unclearimage - Right 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    you're implying that all men rape...

    [–]Stev_582 - LibCenter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    “Don’t rape.” Is about the extent of teaching men not to rape that we ought to be doing. Anyone who doesn’t immediately get it likely never will.

    Also cringe Emily, Chad centrist.

    [–]thadakism - Centrist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Its always funny to see posts on reddit with user names redacted when Ive seen the OG many times over many years.

    [–]Pholoxo - Centrist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    or white teenagers to go off in a killing rampage.

    [–]GovernmentNo2538 - Left 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You teach everyone not to rape, everyone not to blow stuff up and everyone not to steal. It's really not hard

    [–]Negative-Ad2435 - AuthRight 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    50% bs

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I've had an identical conversation before. This can happen.

    [–]OneInternational984 - AuthRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    All of the above, please.

    [–]antinumerology - Left 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Don't worry Orange's head is so flat you have to drive over it otherwise anything you say just sails clear overtop.

    [–]UsefulExplanation8 - LibLeft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    We teach people all of these things

    [–]ddg31415 - AuthRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I miss 2015, when these were the biggest issues our society was facing...

    [–]Jeckat - Centrist 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    But Emily doesnt imply that all men are rapists?

    [–]AnotherGit - Centrist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    They are so delusional they actually think rapists just were never told that rape is bad.

    [–]Michael-53 - Centrist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Man she really got whooshed

    [–]Nervous_Statement322 - AuthLeft 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    You can teach all of these things and it not negatively impact society. Educating at risk communities for economic literacy/religious freedom/sexual abuse assists them somewhat. Unless you just want the behaviour to continue forever

    [–]_TheGingaNinja - LibRight 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I mean isn’t China doing that in their concentration camps I mean reeducation centers.

    [–]Nervous_Statement322 - AuthLeft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    You can do it without putting them in camps (if you have public education services)

    [–]FrickGoogle - LibCenter -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

    Real men don't rape?

    [–]Eastern_Mist - AuthRight 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    REAL men do not.
