You didn't actually bother to read my post, did you?TheKasp said:Also, would you be so kindly to add a source to your "all sex is rape" statement?
I'll copypaste it. "She is doing the "all sex is rape" campaign against herself and this time it's not even a misquote."
Now, "all sex is rape". If you want source, google it. It happened. Since you might not read that sentence, here's a quick summary:
Andrea Dworkin. Quite stupidly (IMHO) she "wanted" to say that women should not subdue to men during sex (or so she claimed in hindsight) in her book Intercourse. Opponents usually criticized the book by saying that she was against sex ("violation is a synonym for intercourse" - the quote that started it all). You know how it goes with word of mouth. Basically people started misquoting her, and the "all sex is rape" situation did not make her look good even in the eyes of feminists.
So the lesson here is, if you want to say that "people obtain pleasure from sex in inequality, which is comparable to rape" you have to say that "violation is a synonym for intercourse" because you can be sure that nobody will ever misquote you.
EDIT: changed the name of the author. I got a bit confused because apparently there were TWO feminists that were accused of saying that all sex is rape. Learning everyday, huh?
