Excuse me, but my children will NOT NOT NOT be learning about RAPE or CONSENT in FUCKING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. NOT BY A LONG FUCKING SHOT YOU BITCH. YOU CUNT. NEVER INSINUATE THAT CHILDREN NEED TO LEARN ABOUT THAT SHIT THAT FUCKING YOUNG.
The funny part is that your children WILL be learning about sex and rape in elementary school. See, what you don’t understand about the progressive movement is that it always wins. Society always progresses, pausing only temporarily in times of great fear to wallow in Conservative drudgery (think The Dark Ages, The Era of European Fascism or The Bush Administration) before launching forward with a new renaissance. Children do need to learn about sex and consent in elementary school and they already do in most parts of the country (you can tell where because they’re inversely proportional to elevated teen pregnancy rates.) And you kick and scream and use inflammatory language, but progressives rarely stress about people like you, because we’ve seen how this movie ends and you always lose.
man if you ever teach your kids about “bad touch” and “no no areas” and “private areas” then they’re learning about rape & consent already, they’re just learning it using words and concepts they’re capable of understanding
like if OP is against teaching kids to respect others’ boundaries and to know what to do and how to process it and that it is bad if someone else is disrespecting their boundaries, then I don’t know what to say
I’m sorry but children should be learning about assault in elementary school…children are raped/molested/sexually assaulted and they should know from a young age that that is wrong and not okay for anyone to do it to them or for them to ever do it to anyone. We had the school nurse talk to us about it when I was in school. If I have children my kids will know DAMN well that it is never okay for anyone to touch them in a way that is inappropriate or makes them uncomfortable and it is never okay for them to do it to someone else. I just don’t understand this post???
On top of that I dont see how its different for you teach teach them how to count and read and throw a ball, and you’ll let them watch tv and be exposed to millions of sexualized advertisements and take to McDonalds and maybe even swear infront of them, but you won’t teach them about something that can happen in your own home, church, school? We are all really confused by this post….
If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.
If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.
If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.
If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.
If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.
Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.

GOD THAT STORY PISSED ME OFF
What people don’t understand is when we say “Teach men not to rape,” we’re not talking about telling them not to jump out of the bushes in a ski mask and grab the nearest female. We’re talking about the way we teach boys that masculinity is measured by power over others, and that they aren’t men unless they “get some.” We’re talking about teaching men (and women) that it’s not okay to laugh at jokes about rape and abuse. We’re talking about telling men that a lack of “No” doesn’t mean “Yes,” that if a woman is too drunk to consent they shouldn’t touch her, that dating someone - or even being married to someone - does not mean automatic consent. We’re talking about teaching boys to pay attention to the girl they’re with, and if she looks uncomfortable to stop and ask if she’s okay, because sometimes girls don’t know how to say stop in a situation like that. We’re talking about how women have the right to change their mind. Even if she’s been saying yes all night, if she says no, that’s it. It’s over. That’s what we mean when we say “Teach men not to rape.
