Commenter MaMu1977 left one of his very powerful comments in Typhonblue’s post “Male Privilege: Slut Shaming”
In my 33 years on this planet, I’ve known 7 boys who have killed themselves as the result of adult women/young boy relationships. Two of them killed themselves to get away from their “loving stepmother”, two of them committed suicide after they were convinced that they’d be accused of rape if they ever left her, and the other three killed themselves when they were dumped and suddenly realised that they were persona non grata among their female peers. I won’t even go into the details about how every “pussyhound” that I’ve ever known was introduced to sex by a (much) older woman. There may be fewer female pederasts than male, but the females get coddled and protected from punishment while the males are (at the very least) warded away from their targets.
You can try to dismiss an account like this with “data is not the plural of anecdotes” but then the burden of proof is on you to show how MaMu1977 is not a good sample, that his observations are anomalous.
Remember his account the next time you hear some moron claim that child rape hurts girls worse than boys. Does anyone have any stories of girls committing suicide as a result of having been raped as minors? I am sure there must be some, just never heard any.
And what’s going on with this?
Two of them killed themselves to get away from their “loving stepmother”,
Where were thier fathers in all this? Obviously the boys were living with their fathers if we area talking about step-mothers. Why did their fathers entrust them to this degree of abandonment to women who were not their mothers? This is as bad as when a mother lets her boyfriend/husband-of-the-month or whatever abuse her children.
I apologise for my fervour, but I’ve lost friends to this dynamic (in comparison, even the girls who I’ve known who were engaged in similar age-disparate relationships tended to muddle through.) Yet, we live in a world in which the same women who worry about whether Justin Bieber is going to dip his wick in the wells of his underage fans, seemed to see nothing wrong with a movie like this…
I think moderation would be something to apologize for.
And for the record, Justin Bieber was accused of having fathered a child by a grown woman who would have been a child rapist if she had in fact not been lying – it’s telling that she thought she could make a claim like that and not be risking rape charges.
Now that’s a real rape culture.
