A few college campus anti-rape activists are complaining in the online publication, about how hard it is for them to get a guy to have sex with them. Worst still is that they claim that it’s all the guys’ fault.
First, there’s UC-Berkeley’s Meghan Warner, who serves as the director of the university’s sexual-assault commission and is part of a federal complaint against the school for its mishandling of assault cases. She thinks it’s strange that guys who find out what she does immediately insist they’d never do anything like that.
“Then there were those who were a little too eager to make it known that they would never, ever assault a woman. Their first response is ‘I’m not one of those guys, I would never do that,’” she said. “I mean, what, should I be carrying gold stars now?”
From the sound of it, Warner can’t even get a participation trophy, let alone gold stars.
And then there’s Chrissy Keenan from UCLA, whose pissed when a guy suddenly decides he doesn’t want to give consent after he finds out what she does. In fact he tells a cute little story about a recent rendezvous:
“One time, I agreed to meet with this guy at 8 or 9 at night. Before we met, I said to him, ‘This is the work I do, I know the chief of police…so, don’t try and get creepy; I know all my rights.’ And five minutes later, he was like, ‘Actually, I’m really not OK with how you just assume I’m a bad guy. And I get very bad vibes from that, so we shouldn’t hang out anymore.’”
“I was in a rage. He was a total fuckboy about consent,” she said.
Finally, there’s Sofie Karasek, a recent UC Berkeley graduate and co-founder of ‘End Rape’ on Campus. She’s also involved with the UC Berkeley lawsuit and has a large part in the campus rape-culture documentary ‘The Hunting Ground.’
“Honestly, even if they’re supportive, even if they say all the right things, and really want to discuss my job, it makes me feel weird about hooking up with them,” she said. “It’s like, ‘Oh, we were just talking about rape, and now we’re going to hook up.’ It’s just weird.”
Men are often accused of “thinking with their dicks,” but in these case’s those so-called dick’s were smarter than the women.
