When ideologies become legal systems, this is when they become real. Before that, they are just ideas.
According to the extremist views of sex-negative feminists, sexual acts by men are usually a form of rape.
When such theories were first printed in the 1980s, most readers were inclined to take this assessment as “figuratively speaking”, and the books just as literature. But sex-negative feminists didn’t consider their assessment “figurative”. They meant it verbally.
And these sex-negative feminist theories appealed to women who had dissatisfying experiences with men, and whose minds were set on revenge against men per se.
What was once a strange theory, has made its way into the legal systems of many countries.
Not just are men in US-defined cultures drawn before courts on charges of rape or sexual molestation. Many men everywhere have come to realize how easily they could be accused.
False rape accusations are dangerous:
Any rape conviction now carries very long prison terms, often life, or even death.
The interpretation of what constitutes rape has been widened so that almost all male sexual conduct can be considered rape.
Furthermore, whether sex is rape or not rape increasingly depends on how the woman chooses to view it any later time.
Women who have participated willingly in a sexual act but later decided that the further development of the relationship wasn’t in accordance to their expectations, have an easy time to claim rape: a day later, a week later, a month later, a year later.
The life of a man who is legally (and this means: publicly) accused of rape, is ruined anyway, even if he should be proven innocent. Any public debate on whatever sexual practice he may have favored is so embarrassing that he would have to go somewhere where he is unknown in order to resume a normal life.
