Sad to say some SIGNIFICANT percentage of Americans SUPPORT CRIMINALIZING WOMEN having any control over our own bodies—whether its in intimate health decisions (like abortion & contraceptives) or in having the RIGHT TO SAY NO to sex…and these SAME people APPEAR to SUPPORT rapists, since they DISBELIEVE majority of women. Their “definition” of what they call “legitamate rape” is NARROW: the perpetrator must be a STRANGER & usually a man of COLOR. The problem is the MAJORITY (60% to 80%)of sexual assaults are perpetrated by someone the woman KNOWS (casual aquaintence, co-worker, friend, ex-partner); victims & perpetrators are almost always of SAME RACE (90% or more)
The 'anti-choice"/ignore sexual violence worldview sees women as inherently inferior to men, created to SERVE men and with few rights. (Recently, some of them even say women should LOSE VOTING RIGHTS—as women are MORE likely to vote for social safety net and other “liberal” programs).
This attempt to enforce a reprehensible DE-HUMANIZATION of women INTERNATIONALLY is simply a more brutally honest expression of the fascists who we’ve recognized are WHITE SUPREMACISTS–but, who are also & equally ANTI-WOMEN.
