|Got buns, hun?|
Ahh, college. I remember it well. The carefree days of sleeping till noon or later. Waltzing into class whenever you feel like it. Hooking up with whatever happened to have two legs for a wild night of casual sex.
What, don't look at me like that. I was a regular Casanova in college.
Okay, fine! I stayed in my dorm room, got drunk, and played Unreal Tournament while listening to techno. Happy?
Anyway, kids in college nowadays have different problems than they did back in the day. Instead of passing finals and figuring out the math involved in a keg stand, women are worried about being raped. The men? Well the men are busy trying to figure out which girl they're going to rape next Tuesday. At least to hear the social justice warriors tell it.
Today's campus feminist activist (femnivist?) is dedicated to protecting fellow women from the depredations of men. They constantly spout their favorite (bogus) statistic that one in four women will be raped. The femnivist constantly screeches about how "Something Must be Done", and the colleges and the government for the most part agree. The result is the passing of ridiculous consent laws, and sham courts where the accused has very few rights. Even if the accused (almost always male) is found innocent, they still face disciplinary procedures, expulsion, and social ruination from femnivists.
With all that in mind, is it any wonder that the self-appointed defenders of women would have trouble getting laid:
Chrissy Keenan, a UCLA senior, is the president of Bruin Consent Coalition, a campus group that works to raise awareness regarding sexual assault on campus. “When people know of me but they don’t really know the work, they hear the term ‘feminist’ or ‘sexual-violence prevention,’ they think, ‘super-extreme, bra-burning feminism,’” she explains, which often puts people on the defensive.
Keenan herself, though, sometimes finds it hard not to go on the offensive. She’s so used to laying down the nitty-gritty details of consent that she's been known to open romantic interactions with a spiel that feels straight out of a student handbook.
She animatedly tells a story about a recent Tinder rendezvous: “One time, I agreed to meet with this guy at 8 or 9 at night. Before we met, I said to him, ‘This is the work I do, I know the chief of police ... so, don't try and get creepy; I know all my rights.’ And five minutes later, he was like, ‘Actually, I'm really not OK with how you just assume I'm a bad guy. And I get very bad vibes from that, so we shouldn't hang out anymore.’”
“I was in a rage. He was a total fuckboy about consent,” she said.So just to recap: social justice feminist and rape activist agrees to hook up with random guy. Feminist sends guy a message before they meet telling him not to try any funny business. Feminist gets REALLY pissed when said guy actually revokes consent and refuses to meet with her.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the fact that a woman can revoke consent at any time kind of a bedrock of, well, decency? I mean if you're getting hot and heavy with your lady friend in the back of an adult bookstore, and she all of a sudden says no, you stop. Is that not what guys have hammered into them since, well, puberty? So what happens when a man revokes consent? Apparently the woman gets pretty pissed off and calls him a "total fuckboy".
Two things here, ladies. There is an immutable law among guys as old as time, and that law is "don't stick your dick in crazy." There are plenty of news stories out there of guys hooking up with a gal, the gal regrets it after the walk of shame, and then proceeds to falsely accuse the guy of rape and ruin his life (*cough*Rolling Stone*cough*Mattress Girl*cough*). Couple that with the fact that it's very easy to completely ruin someone for life through the kangaroo courts the colleges have set up. This guy very likely was a normal, decent guy who, when confronted with a feminist tirade as an opener before a date was rightly offended. Can you blame him for not wanting to take this little tryst any further? Guys have just as much right to protect themselves as girls do.

Secondly, there is not a rapist lurking inside of every guy. Not every man that glances at you is thinking lecherous thoughts. Not every guy who smiles at you wants to get into your panties. It sounds cliche, but it sounds that way because it's true. Most guys know that no means no. Most guys don't have to be taught that raping a woman is bad. In fact, if you meet a guy who has to be taught that, let me know so I can stay the hell away from him too. Any man raised in a decent household with parents who know enough to teach him right from wrong is going to know how to treat a woman. It's not an uncommon thing.
You ladies want to hook up and get laid more? Maybe recognize the fact that you don't need to treat every guy like a criminal.
