Sexual Adventurism and the Young Men of Today

Statistics from credible sources prove that between two and ten percent of reported rape are false.

The fact that up to 10% of all reported rapes are false is not an insignificant number to the youngsters who are among those 10%.

Reasonable people might put these numbers in perspective this way.

If 2% to 10% of the inmates on death row were innocent when they will put to death society probably would not be so cavalier and dismissive about throwing that number around (unless a member of the base of Donald J Trump of course).

And that aside.

We’re not just talking about rape when we are talking about the danger of alledged predatory women making false reports of a sexual nature.
We are talking the whole range of accusations of a sexual nature that can destroy a person’s life.

Brett Kavanaugh was never accused of rape for example but had he not been a man of influence, had he been Joe Lunch Bucket, the charge of attempted rape without evidence would have been enough to ruin his life even if he never saw the inside of a court of law.

Those who discount the reality that false charges exist in such numbers are comfortable with trading the lives of a certain number of young men if it means the realization of a larger goal.

We see this same concept in military adventurism.

Military leaders routinely accept the fact that a certain number of warriors and civilians are going to die in order to realize military objectives both large and small.

I believe the term is “collateral damage”.

Maybe that’s fine in the military but is it necessary in civilian life to sacrifice a percentage of our youngsters for the “greater good”?

Maybe Society will ultimately accept that ruining the lives of up to 10% of our young men is fair compensation for a system where charges of sexual inappropriateness require no evidence before we find the individual guilty.

Society may make that judgement reasonable people may say it’s not necessary to ruin those lives at all.

Reasonable people may say we CAN punish the guilty AND agree that does not preclude young men from taking the reasonable precautions necessary to protect themselves from the false charges that credible sources claim are generated by anywhere from 2% to 10% of the female population bringing those charges.

What the men and women of reason would say is that we should teach our youth to vet the people (male or female) they allow into their lives and/or interact with in a potentially explosive sexual situation.

Prior to the easy availability of birth control and abortion our young people were taught by loving parents to look beyond their hormones and to be proactive what it came to protecting themselves from individuals that had the potential to be a destructive force in their lives.

It was an easy lesson to teach back then since unwanted pregnancies with life destroying effects would be the price of failure.

It is not so easy today when there is no longer the stigma nor condemnation to having children out of wedlock nor to terminating a pregnancy should should the baby be unwanted.
But it is a lesson that can still be taught.

If young men were taught to choose the people in their lives carefully, let their heads and not their hormones rule their actions when interacting with the opposite sex and to document their interactions to the extent that technology and Common Sense allows then both young men and young women can live their lives to a ripe old age and never fear that false charges from their past will bring the sounds of Jack Boots on their doorstep.

The Roots of the Predatory Male in the 21th Century?

J R F Park logo

 

The consensus today seems to be in both the liberal and conservative communities that all American males in their youth were/are sexual predators and there seems to be evidence to support that.

This is somewhat confusing to many representatives of the senior population.
They remember the interaction of the sexes quite differently.

Many tell us that in their youth the sexually predatory male was largely unknown in what passed as “polite” society.

Certainly not in high school and not even in college for the most part throughout the 60’s ( though one senior citizen reports there were incidents involving the male teaching staff and female students that generated a certain amount of conversation ).

Historians may at some point come to ask how much easy access to birth control and abortion had to do with the apparent change in male attitudes resulting in what we started to see in the 1970’s and beyond

Back in “the day” for many older Americans there was a real fear of pregnancy among the boys and girls and it was the rare boy or girl that didn’t show great restraint because of that.

There are always exceptions but they were the “bad” boys and “bad”  girls from the “wrong side of the tracks” living out on the “Pike” as they called it.

This would be an interesting angle for some credible researcher or institution to pursue given the realities of the world today, though it would not be a study that can be conducted without condemnation from some elements of society.

Kavanaugh Beyond Scotus

Storm Clouds over the Nation

Now that two  women are making accusations of sexual misdeeds against Brett Kavanaugh credible observers would say an investigation by the FBI would be entirely appropriate.

But there is a wrinkle no one is talking about.

If Kavanaugh is found guilty then clearly the man is not qualified to sit on any bench and therefore must relinquish his current position.

And since there is no statute of limitations on sexual abuse in Maryland, it would be entirely proper that Kavanaugh be prosecuted in a court of law and if found guilty be added to the national sex offender hot list.

On the other hand if Kavanaugh is cleared by the FBI investigation that would mean his two accusers clearly lied and the legal penalties should swift and just.
If either accuser is employed in a position where public trust is a requirement, then clearly the person’s employer would be duty bound to reevaluate.

Justice also demands they also be subject to appropriate legal remedies related to  defamation of character and whatever damage it can be proved that they caused to Kavanaugh’s reputation and future and the mental health of his family.

Whichever way this goes any lack of follow-up when it comes to legal consequences  would be a slap in the face to the credibility of the #MeToo movement and an insult to all the peoples of the United States of America who believe in due process of law.

This is a discussion America needs to have and it needs to start now.

The MeToo movement is in danger of jumping the shark

The Voice of Reason (photo by Jack Rusak)
According to their social media pages, this is what the liberal community would have us believe
“All we need to know is that the dude is white, the dude is male, the dude is a conservative and a female made the accusation of sexual abuse.
It does not matter if Kavanaugh is guilty or not, it is incumbent upon Society to send a message that white males of a certain age will not be tolerated in political or for that matter public life.
That message must be sent loud and clear”.

Of course those marching orders only apply to men in public life of a conservative nature.

We all heard for example how the members of the liberal community today are all demanding we give Al Franken a pass for his sexual appetites.

And then we have that attorney general candidate from a certain state who happens to be a mover and shaker in the DNC and the movement remains strangely silent about him even though he is accused of doing something akin to what Kavanaugh is accused of and in his case some say, unlike the SCOTUS nominee, there might be evidence that dude actually committed the crime.

That kind of obvious double standard and hypocrisy would not help ANY social movement impress fair minded people.

Of course so far this campaign has been very effective when it comes to filling the tent with the “true believers” but the danger for MeToo is that sooner or later they may go an accusation too far and the reasonable and decent people of America may start to see the movement as one without credibility or honor as we have seen happen to so many movements so many times before.
