Re: Woman jailed for making false claim of sexual assault

The problem of fear of persecution by the victim is a difficult one, but is the solution really to make it so that a false accuser has no consequences to fear? 18 months is a slap on the wrist. Since when is 18 months in prison a minor thing? I suspect if you've been to prison for 1 1/2 years for w...

Re: 'Balloon Boy' parents sentenced to jail

Yes, I know. My point is that I don't see any reason to jail them as well as doing that. The reason for jailing them seems to me to be "look, we're punishing them, see?", which I don't think is a useful basis for running a criminal justice system. But then, I think it's hard to justify ja...

It is. Feminism recognizes that patriarchy is damaging to both sexes and rejects the idea that patriarchy is some sort of natural state for men. It also recognizes that both sexes can support patriarchy.

We're still on the subject of rape role playing right? And how the assumptions we make there affect rape-claims at large.

It doesn't have to be about morality. When you remove the ability to withdraw consent, and especially when you then go on to push hir boundaries, you run a substantial risk of hurting your partner.
