You Won’t Be Shocked by This Crappy Return of Kings Post Telling Men Not to Date “Girls Who Claim They Were Raped”

fx4xGsk
Proper response to virtually all Return of Kings posts

 

I suppose I should mention the latest attempt at viral outrage from the always terrible Return of Kings boys: A post by B.R. Crumb with the deliberately offensive title “Why You Should Avoid Dating Girls Who Claim They Were Raped.”

The trolly Crumb is so unashamed of his trolliness that he actually devotes a chunk of his post to imagining an outraged reaction from me (“already I can see David Futrelle’s fourth chin trembling as he stammers his rebuttal in a fit of pique”).

So I might as well give him what he wants, a reaction, though it’s one of weariness rather than “pique.” 

Crumb’s “argument” is that, while men shouldn’t necessarily “forego banging a raped chick (after getting her written consent, notarized and in triplicate)” they shouldn’t enter into relationships with them, because a dating strike against “chicks” who claim to have been raped will, as he puts it, undercut the appeal of rape. No, really.

Girls are fond of falsely crying rape because in the sexually liberated West, being known as a rape victim is all upside, no downside. Raped chicks are praised for heroism and bravery. Other people lavish attention on them, and ask them to speak about themselves at length, which for chicks is like crack cocaine.

In extreme cases, raped chicks have leveraged their purported suffering into international acclaim and seven-figure book deals. …

If men once again refuse to date raped chicks, rape will become once more an infrequent source of private and passing pain, and not an indelible merit badge to be trumpeted across all the media outlets in the land.

As you can see, his infallible plan to reduce the alleged appeal of rape is not actually a plan to reduce rape itself; it’s just a plan to try to get women to shut up about being raped.

In case this argument isn’t offensive enough for you, Crumb throws in a remark about raped women “orgasm[ing] underneath [their] alluring, bad-boy attacker[s].”

Crumb confesses that he doesn’t actually care much if men date “raped chicks”; they just need to announce publicly that they won’t.

What matters is that you say you won’t date raped chicks, and thus encourage girls to think that crying rape will hurt their romantic prospects.

Realize that we are fighting a war of disinformation, against an unprincipled enemy that is openly contemptuous of the truth. Nothing could be more tediously unproductive than arguing over facts with an opponent who has chosen to forego them. To win this fight, you have to hit the bitches where it hurts.

And for most chicks, that means attacking their romantic prospects—or, more fundamentally, their attractiveness. Even the most manjawed cunt secretly harbors fantasies of locking down a good man, marrying him, and thereby trebling her disposable income. Chicks will cry rape if it means endless, adoring attention with zero associated cost. But they won’t if they think getting raped renders them unattractive in the eyes of men.

Though the headline of Crumb’s piece refers to “Girls Who Claim They Were Raped” (emphasis mine), and he uses similar language in his post, he quickly forgets about including this qualifier, referring repeatedly to “raped chicks” — as if, on some level, he recognizes that the overwhelming majority of rape claims are indeed true.

Towards the end of the post, he seems to suddenly remember that he’s supposed to pretend that rape accusations are all a bunch of lies.

[I]f we band together in this effort, then someday, in the not-so-distant future, a 6.5 will find herself in her dorm room, regretfully recalling the night she got pounded out by the captain of her college’s club soccer team… and she’ll idly contemplate crying rape.

But then she’ll remember how much she likes the captain of the club swim team, and she’ll consider the impact crying rape would have on his opinion of her. And she’ll think better of her little lie.

And when she does, it will be because together, we took a stand against ever dating raped chicks.

He couldn’t even keep up the facade for more than two paragraphs; in the final paragraph of that quote, he has returned to talking about women that even he would acknowledge have really been raped.

And that, of course, is the whole point of his screed. His “plan,” of course, is really no more than a fantasy — a fantasy, not of a world free of rape but one free of all talk of rape.

He’s not really interested in shutting up women who lie about rape; he’s interested in shutting up those who tell the truth. 

But there is a silver lining here: If the terrible men who make up the bulk of the Return of Kings demographic actually do refuse to date rape survivors, well, they won’t be dating rape survivors. Return of Kings has already declared dating strikes against fat women, women with short hair and probably a number of other kinds of women that I can’t remember at the moment. Ultimately, one can only hope, they’ll end up boycotting all possible categories of human women and settle into long-term and hopefully more-or-less sanitary relationships with their Fleshlights.

I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

(I’m sure the comments to Crumb’s post are even worse than anything he’s written; I just don’t have the energy to wander into them today.)

CORRECTION: Crumb says he did not write the headline to his piece; I have reworded one sentence to reflect this.

Paradoxical Intention-

As someone who is a rape survivor (and I would say I’m a 3.14 for the lulz [it’s funny because PI]), it took me years to actually discuss my sexual abuse (which was roughly two years of being raped over and over again) outside of a courtroom. The first time was in my freshman year of high school when I told my story to the school’s guidance counselor, the school’s security officer (who was also a police officer), the DA, and a jury of twelve people.

My fourteen year old self wasn’t relishing in the attention, I wanted nothing more than to be left alone and not talk about it anymore. It hurt me to talk about it. I felt dirty and used and I hated everyone look at me with pity and give me the “I’m sorry” stuff.

In fact, the second time it went to court (my senior year of high school), I had more than one mental breakdown because I didn’t want to talk about my story again. I didn’t want to go back in the courtroom and tell a new jury about how I was held down against my will and assaulted when I was twelve, thirteen, and fourteen by a man twice my size and weight, who beat me for every little infraction, and had almost total power over me.

I’ve only become more relaxed and okay to talk about it after ten plus years, and having time to heal in my own way and at my own pace.

↑ This.

How the hell do these people get the twisted view that there is ‘no downside’ to being raped? Not only is the rape itself horricfic, many rape victims do not receive justice, are often still not believed and are often victim blamed. And if the case does get to court, talking about it in great detail in front people they don’t know and being heavily cross examined is a devastating experience. What the f**k makes them think that there is any ‘benefit’ to being raped at all?!

But, all in all, please stay the fuck away from me and other rape survivors RoK douchebags. You and your peens are not wanted here.

Seconded!

PS

More hugs and kisses if you want them! <3

That an MRA* would say a thing like this is hilarious. It deserves a special, shiny entry into the hall of fame of statements which almost, almost achieve self awareness but avoid it by the most narrow of margins.

@Paradoxical:
Hopefully that ends well. My best wishes to yourself and your family, and my sense of powerlessness that I can’t do more than send best wishes.

*Or an off-brand MRA. We got this one from RoK so it’s probably a Neo-Masculinist or a PUA. Don’t cry, sweetie, it’s just as good.

Ah, so Mr. Crumb’s problem with rape victims is that they get all this attention and praise for being able to speak about their awful experiences. I’m sure we will soon hear similar complaints against cancer survivors and other folks who live through tragedy and talk about it in public.

To be honest, probably. Guys like this resent everyone for everything.

This contemptible piece of clickbait is not only pathetic but staggeringly unoriginal. Another RoKspawn wrote this last year:

http://www.donotlink.com/framed?557078 ‘What To Do When She Claims To Have Been Raped In The Past’

Which, once he’s attempted to show that very few women really get raped, using insights like the fact he’s never met a man who admitted to raping anybody, concludes by saying he would never date a girl who claimed to have been raped.

RoK has a very limited range, and every note of it went stale a long time ago.

@Fruitloopsie, I really hope you and your mother do get to move away soon, people like your grandmother are best loved from a distance.

@Paradoxical Intention, I’m concerned to hear about your sister. While I don’t have all the facts I can guess this is not going to end well, even if her boyfriend’s parents are good to her. But ultimately these are her choices, right or wrong. I’m glad that you’ve at least managed to escape the cycle of abuse.

@sn0rkmaiden:
They don’t see themselves as being at danger of being raped. In MRA ideology, alpha men don’t get raped by other men. Betas get raped. The way for them to avoid being in danger is therefore not to work to overcome toxic masculinity and rape culture, but to avoid being betas.

This is why, in my opinion, MRA culture is so quick to shun and abhor anyone within their ranks who has bad things happen to them. It’s not about compassion, it’s about No True Scotsmanning to make themselves feel invulnerable once again.

Seconding the support and best wishes for Paradoxical and fruitloopsie. There is no “upside” to being raped, even though this guy seems to think it automatically lands you a seven-figure book deal and a guest spot on Oprah.

He’s angry that rape isn’t a life-ruining experience for every woman, so he wants to move in, get in the face of survivors, and properly “punish” them by playing the damaged-goods/spinster card. (There’s probably also an undercurrent of twisted jealousy at the idea that rape survivors have had sex, however unwelcome and devastating and horrible and unlike actual sex that experience actually was, because to these guys sex is the be-all end-all, and sex and rape are indistinguishable anyways). That’s why he’s not being a shitstain to cancer survivors, because cancer is random and undeserved. It isn’t supposed to be a moral punishment for bad behavior, whereas rape survivors are “supposed” to just crawl off quietly into a corner and disappear, not reclaim their lives, tell their stories, and *gasp* make rapists look bad.

This guy has yet to realize that the spinster card expired round about 1980. In fact, unbeknownst to him, it now offers triple reward points and cash back for every vile douchedinghy who loudly announces that he will no longer be peeing in the dating pool.

@Paradoxical and fruitloopsie – hugs if you want them.

Yeah, no upside to being a victim. It’s always worse too when it’s family. In my case it was all swept under the rug and every family function I can see my abuser interacting with children even though my mom is like ‘oh they’re watching him’ it’s still sickening because what happens when he’s not ‘being watched’, you know? There’s also the fact that when you DO come forward so many people don’t believe you or find some way to blame you for what happened. (Yes, my four year old self TOTALLY seduced my uncle >_< barf.)

That being said, hugs and support and chocolate (or other sweet and tasty things) to all other survivors and victims out there. <3

After I was raped at 15, I lost my entire friendship group because they were all friends with him as well and they believed him over me. Except for one, who told me that she’d been raped by him as well but was too afraid to tell the others because she needed their friendship, however false said friendship was.

“Man-jawed” refers to the fact that men tend to have jaws that are shaped more squarely than do women. Their mastoid process is also more prominent than those of women (the mastoid process is a bone behind the ear). Those are two things I look for when sexing a skull (archaeologist here).

He thinks the only downside to being raped is that some rapist asshole might not want to date you?

Christ, what an asshole.

Does anyone else notice that these guys often fantasize about being everything they aren’t (aside from rapists. In all likelihood, they are rapists.)?

This guy isn’t a sporty college student. No woman anywhere is clamoring to get in his bed. The only thing he can be from this fantasy is a rapist. That’s what he thinks the cool kids are doing. This is his fantasy. He wants to victimize a woman and have her meekly keep his secret and come crawling back to him anyway. These PUMGRedpillAs always dream of rejecting women. Everyone knows no women want them in the first place. The PUA branch of the manuosphere is all about how to get women alone, drugged and vulnerable so they can be raped by men they’d never consensualy fuck.

“I’d never fuck a fat/tattooed/educated /short haired/mature chick! Ew! Gross! Hate. Hate. Hate. Blah. Blah. Blah.”

They’d beg for a scrap of any of those women’s attention and they know it. They’d jump through flaming hoops if they thought it gave them a glimmer of an iota of a chance. They’ve likely tried everything they could think of (Bless their shriveled black hearts, you know that didn’t take long.) and been brushed off. Why else would they be so angry? There are plenty of people in the world I’m not interested in fucking. I’ve never felt the need to take to the internet to rage about it.

“I walked by a guy on the street today and he just wasn’t my type. ARGLEBARGLERAAWWWR!”

They rape as revenge because they are the lowest forms of life on the planet and they’ll never be as good as the women they want to torment.

This whole PUA thing is a bunch of rapists and their pathetic fans preforming for one another. It’s chest beating and knob slobbering that they know isn’t going to get even one of them a date. They do it anyway because what else are they going to do? Improve themselves? Grow a conscience? Get hobbies and self respect? That’s alot harder than rage wanking with a bunch of other hollow, frustrated men online. They might die from mild exertion if they tried. They’re going to stick to these easy stuff. It’s all they know.

Orgasms from rape do not mean you like rape anymore than sneezing when someone blows pepper in your face means you like irritants up your nose. Friction, how the fuck does it work.

Internet hugs to all of you who survived rape. As someone who at most has been inappropriately touched, catcalled and groped, I cannot say I “know what you’re going through”. I don’t. I just don’t. I can imagine. I can empathize. I can try to put myself in your shoes, but I admit, I really just don’t know how you feel. But please accept my internet hugs as the best I can do.

I really am sick of all these people who assert ideas with absolutely no evidence, who claim they know what other people think or feel, and who project all their own messed up crap onto other people.

I am sick of all these people who don’t understand power differentials, who, in their messed up worldview, actually assert that the power tips in balance of the powerless. These are men who will brag about how much stronger men are than women so that we cannot even imagine a female superhero who has great strength and courage. Yet, women should be able to miraculously escape from someone who seems threatening and appears they might kill her. And male victims of rape, I guess, are only lowly omegas or the butt of some prison joke.

The only acceptable rapist for them is the back alley stranger, probably a person of color, wielding a knife or gun. If you know your rapist, well, you must be lying because you regret sex.

And this is something I don’t get: why would I claim rape if I regret sex? I’ve had some bad sex. I had a one-night stand that was really awful. Stupid and pointless for me. I was young and experimenting. And at the time, a guy who was my friend actually seemed to change his attitude toward me (he was at the party where I picked up one-night stand guy). We stopped being friends. I think he thought I was a slut. Anywho, I didn’t claim rape. I wrote the one-night stand guy off as unworthy of any further contact, and the “friend” who thought poorly of me was equally written off as not a true friend. The idea of claiming I was raped never came into my mind. Did I miss out on the millions of free monies and instant fame? /sarc/

Shorter B. R. Crumb Return of Kings post title:

“Why we MRAs Should Avoid Dating Women Who Will Call Us Out On Our Rapeyness

Fixed it for him.

Also, any women MRAs refuse to date are women who won’t have to worry about being raped by a population that has a huge problem respecting consent in the first place …

… unless the MRAs are the type of rapists that rape regardless of whether or not they “date.”

I don’t want to conflate MRA with rapist, but when they promote shit like this …  : – (

I have not been raped, but I have known many women who have been, and they certainly did not tell me or anyone without knowing and trusting that they would be believed and treated with respect. It is not something that they liked to talk about, and found it very painful. Only one had reported, and her rapist was acquitted.

ROK go on about ‘broken’ women quite a lot – and yet deny that rape happens. So how does this ‘breaking’ occur exactly? It leads to things like eating disorders, self harm, tattoos (reclamation of the body for herself imo) – the former 2 commonly associated with childhood sexual abuse and rape. But in ROK’s world there is no rape. Whatevs guys – stay away from us, that is fine and dandy by us – we are not interested in compassion free rape denialists.

My experience of attempted rape was already terrifying to me. I was with a guy from my class that I had had a crush on for months during a party. and he kept insisting that we go to his place. I kept saying that I was not interested. When I noticed, he was taking me to a darker and desert area of the place. He threw me on the floor and proceeded to jump on top of me. I managed to kick him in the middle of his legs and get him off me. I run away and left the party. It took me years to tell this story to people. I mean, I knew the guy. I felt so ashamed, for some reason. Now I know that I shouldn’t feel this way. I cannot imagine the horror that is to actually be raped. I send my love to all of you rape survivors and hugs if you want them.
These RoK idiots… makes me so upset, I want to cry…

p.s.: one time, I was dating a guy and we started sharing upsetting memories we had. He told me his story. I told the story above and he said “oh… that is not that big of a deal”. argh….

*Trigger warning*
This is so fucked up. I just remembered this for the first time in years. Or I just re-remembered it because I forgot I remembered it before? How the fuck did that slip my mind?
Creepy.

I had a close “friend” push me onto my bed, hold me down and try to force me to cut him with a knife. He was really into the idea that I’d enjoying hurting him and really wanted to push me to the point I would. He kept putting the knife in my hand and I kept dropping it and saying,”Never gonna happen, man.” No crying. No yelling for help. (My mom would have killed us both.) No struggling. Just refusal. His girlfriend called and he let me answer the phone on my headboard. (Phones had cords then.) He bashfully got off me when I handed him the phone. Dude was 6’4″ with a knife. At that point in my life I’d seen enough sexual harassment and bullying that it barely phased me. Men, amirite? Can’t trust ’em further than you can throw ’em. Ho-hum, on with life. I was surprised and let down, but…man.

Even a masochist with a domme fetish can be rapey as hell. You’d think you’re safe with one, but you aren’t.

I laughed it off and we (all three of us) continued to pal around until graduation. That’s rape culture. I told no one. I didn’t want to embarrass him. I was pissed but hey, no reason to be petty, right? Forgive and forget. Besides, friends don’t narc.

“Friends” who rape are not uncommon. Those “nice guys” have never been nice.

A friend of mine slapped her attacker when he tried to rape her while waiting for the rest of their gaming buddies to show up at his house. (D&D) He sat down and cried. He didn’t expect her to be that strong. (I’ve seen her chop wood 7 months pregnant. I don’t know what he was thinking. She’s a beast.) His power fantasy was ruined. Everyone else showed up. They all went to lunch. She didn’t tell anyone for years.

Nerdy “nice” dudes can be rapists too.

Another friend had a neighbor break into her house and try to rape her when she was a teen. The UPS guy knocked on the door and he high tailed it out the back door. She told no one because she was afraid her dad would beat her (as he often did) for having a boy in the house. He lived next door for years.

Rape culture fucks with women in so many ways.

There is no upside to rape. Most victims never tell. But if you get women alone long enough and they start to trust each other, that’s when the truth comes out. No book deals. No retribution. No fanfare. Just relief that you can safely say what happened to you.

That relief is something these rapists fuckers don’t want women to have. Anything that makes the pain and shame go away is something they want to keep out of reach of women. They dream of broken women because that’s what get’s them off.

They tell women that if they don’t act like a victim men won’t treat them like one. That’s bullshit. My stalker in college said he was attracted to me because I reminded him of Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing. My stalker believed he was like a knight in some fucked up version of courtly love. What did I wear at school? T’s, jeans and cargo shorts or long hippie skirts. I wore a ponytail and often a ball cap. I didn’t wear make up. I didn’t go to parties. I didn’t drink. (I didn;t have the money had I wanted to.) I was an am a nerd. He liked that about me. I had red hair. He liked redheads. I was the kind of girl he wanted and by golly, he was going to get me.

He was “awkward” and clearly had a touch of the “not quite right”. So the school did nothing but tell him I’d told on him when I did. He was not forced off campus until he started to stalk a professor. He’d been stalking various women for years. Turns out he’d been kicked out of a couple high schools for it prior to finding his way to my school. (He had a thing for cheerleaders too.) He used to hang out around a local coffee shop and ask women to give him a ride home. It took an employee of the university complaining to get anything done.

Oddly enough, not one of us were showered with money and praise. I don’t know where he is today, but I’d like to think he’s dead because that is the only way he was ever going to stop.

I guess I was just erring on the side of caution because there are some self-described feminists (Hugo Schwyzer) and kinksters (Jian Ghomeshi) that also don’t “do consent good”, but that’s more a willingness for rapists/abusers/phonies to use the high level of ethics implicit in feminism and BDSM as cover for their predation/phoniness.

MRAs don’t even feign such cover, so …

MRAs ≈ Rapists/Abusers

… seems to be a highly accurate equation.  Again, good call on your part.

This is, I believe, what Ed Brayton over at FTB calls “weapons grade projection.”*

Ironically there’s an article in the Daily Mail today saying that women do lie about rape and a woman commented that while this is true (and they should be jailed for it) there are far more women who HAVE been raped and in fact they far outnumber false claims. The result so far is that 70 people agree with that statement and a whopping 79 disagree. Guess all the misogynists from the manosphere are out in force! How can they possibly think more women make false claims than are raped? Where do they get their stats from? Surely even the most intelligent of men would know they are wrong? The mind boggles! Makes me sick how they hijack articles on this subject and truly believe that their illogical crap is the truth.

Well I’m glad they’re encouraging the jerks who frequent their site to out themselves as the jerks they truly are.

When I saw the title, I thought it was going to be about MRAs encountering a woman who tells them they’ve been raped and the guy saying he doesn’t date “chicks who claim they’ve been raped.” That’s messed up, but it makes sense with their views: they don’t want to be “accused of rape,” so they are protecting themselves.

Now that it sounds like they’re announcing they don’t date “raped chicks” whenever the subject comes up, they’re really telling all around (and their friends) not to date them. If I worked in an office where a guy did something like this, I would not date him despite not being a “raped chick” because such sentiments suggest he is a rape sympathizer and potentially dangerous, and I would discourage others from dating him as well. Thanks for doing us all a favor. This way, people that might date these guys won’t have to figure this out too late.
