MALE DISPOSABILITY – Erasing male rape victims, Part II – Tamen evaluates a British and a Norwegian study on rape victims and finds invalidating methodological errors

Typhonblue asked Tamen about a British study of crime, the CESW, especially about the rape statistics:

“I looked at the source documents. Is the reason why there is such a low rate of men reporting “serious sexual assault” in both the alternative and current questionnaires?”

Tamen answered:

“Yes, there are two reasons I can see right away.

MALE DISPOSABILITY – Mary P. Koss and influencing a government entity to erase male victims of rape

SUMMARY:

1. Mary P. Koss insists on a definition of rape that conceals the incidence of female-on-male rape.

2. The center for disease control (CDC) is a government entity charged with serving the entire public and all citizens of the United States equally.…

DOUBLE STANDARDS – Dick jokes, dick staring, hypocrisy and control

EquilibriumShift commented in the thread on DOUBLE STANDARDS – Jon Hamm and the Female Gaze:

This is absolutely related to the previous post re: Adria Richards power play to police sexuality to her standards.

He’s right. This really is about women controlling men’s behavior and speech.…

IT’S SHIT LIKE THIS, FEMINISTS – Wonder why women are reluctant to call themselves feminists? Try listening to them!

Ever since studies began coming out showing that large numbers, majorities even, of young women are reluctant to call themselves feminists, the subject has attracted comment.

Most recently Ally Fogg has posed the question in about as serious a form as I have seen.…

DOUBLE STANDARDS – Jon Hamm and the Female Gaze

His eyes are up here, you pervert!

Actor Jon Hamm has been targeted for a whole lot of snickering about his genitals of the sort that no female actor has ever been, to my memory.

Ths is in the context of decades of blue-nosed hectoring abut “sexual objectification” when men look at women’s breasts – only now when the shoe is on the other foot, it’s quite alright for women to twitter over some guy’s bulge.…

FEMALE PRIVILEGE – Donglegate – This is what sexual entitlement looks like

Patrick Brown makes a very good point in this thread about women imposing their own standards of decency and speech on men in the workplace, or elsewhere for that matter:

Patrick Brown on 2013-03-26 at 9:51 am said:
Thing is though – as you point out with your link – it’s not actually a female norm.

FEMALE PRIVILEGE – Donglegate and the colonization of men’s spaces

Donglegate is about one more attempt to impose female norms in the workplace on the assumption that they are simply civilized norms. Supposedly one of the marks of privilege is that the norms of the privileged groups are just considered “the norm” for everyone.…

HYPOAGENCY – Hypoagency and Blaming Everything on Men

I’m going to be doing a series on hypoagency and hyperagency. Typhonblue identified these as the core of the gender system we find so problematic and the more I look at them the more that analysis is confirmed.

Because this is series, I am soliciting examples of both.…

HISTORY – Kathleen Parker on Betty Friedan – ‘The Feminine Mystique’ at 50

Kathleen Parker writes a lot of good stuff when it comes to gender, and here’s some more from her. This time she is marking the 50 year anniversary of Betty Friedan’s seminal work in feminism, The Feminine Mystique, and offering comment on it.…

HISTORY – Personalities and factionalism in late 70s feminism – courtesy of Ms. Daisy Deadhead

This is a comment DaisyDeadhead made at least a month ago. I don’t remember which thread it was and the context doesn’t really matter because the information is useful and really it stands on its own.

There is no such thing as too much clarity and part of clarity is granularity and attention to detail.…
