Is it "Natural" for Men to "Rape and Beat" Women?

'It's natural for men to rape and beat women' says sacked lawyer suing firm for £3.5m for sex discrimination

A high-flying female lawyer suing a leading City law firm for £3.5million for sex discrimination has claimed it is 'natural for men to rape and beat women'.
She writes: 'Men have been dragging women by the hair since caveman days. It's in their nature to be violent.
'The human male has evolved to slap his slutty woman.
'If you're hanging out with real men and you're a little slutty, you're going to get hit. Period.'

Re: Is it "Natural" for Men to "Rape and Beat" Women?

Oh, well, if the Daily Mail says so, then it must be true!

IMHO the answer to the question is a resounding NO!!

Only dysfunctional men abuse and only dysfunctional women are attracted to those men, that is not to say that a woman can't make a mistake and end up with one, but if she is repeatedly finding herself in that situation, then there's something definitely wrong.

Re: Is it "Natural" for Men to "Rape and Beat" Women?

OK from the way I read it the lawyer is saying it's in men's nature to be violent towards women, not that it's natural and OK but that all men (real men?) are violent bastards. Either way, I think it's obviously not true, and that I would guess most men don't hit or beat anyone.

Re: Is it "Natural" for Men to "Rape and Beat" Women?

She is just a bitter ex employee who wants to blood because she has been found out to be writing erotic novels online, inspired from her high flying career in that firm and all the debauchery that went with it. Trust her to be milking the attention for all its worth.

Not sure what she is smoking for her to be sprouting rubbish like that but she sure is a disgrace to my kind.

This is not for real, right?
I bet her boss wished for that time machine that could take him back in time and into the alternative reality where she was not part of his life professional or private, not relevant
thanks for the article, it was fun

On second thought... I think that 'Real Woman' needs to be disciplned by a 'Real Man' for being so naughty and publishing such columns!

Re: Is it "Natural" for Men to "Rape and Beat" Women?

One of the comedians at the Funny Laundry was quite outeageous.
He said, "Okay who wants to hear my rape joke?"
There was an uncomfortable silence.
After a couple of seconds he said, "Okay I understand. I guess you had to be there."

Mrs.T
Thats a really interesting post if one considers the historical resistance to charging men with rape, the definition of the word dysfunctional, the ability of the Serbs and Croats to mass-rape Bosnian women, the allegedly high number of unreported rapes, the entire child pornography industry, much of the contents of youporn, I suppose I could go on.

there is also this - I mean I know its in Kerry but come on ...

Sorry HTD but maybe I am missing the point here... but are you saying it is not necessarily dysfunctional men who commit such acts of barbarity?
i.e. in the examples you gave:

1. historical resistance to charging men with rape? I'm not sure if this is true, as men are time and time again charged with rape and go on to be cleared of such charges... e.g. John Leslie and the Ulrika Allegation... and unfortunately mud sticks, if there is any resistance it's probably due to lack of evidence or due to the fact that a very miniority of women (I have no statistic to go off) do actually fabricate the allegations...

2. The definition of the word dysfunctional? (just means not conforming to the norm) are you just saying that such "sexual assaults" might be commited by people who might not necessarily be dysfunctional?

3. War contexts where women are "sexually assualted" by enemy troops? (Are the troops considered not dysfunctional? i.e normal?)


4. and 5...

I seem to have missed the story but what the article doesn't say is why was the women targeted when the man has been convicted???

Most sexual assault claims go unreported as the victim risks a life of misery after doing so.
Troops fighting together suddenly all suffer from the same dysfunction at the same time?
It's not the majority of men but it's not that they don't exist either.

Hi HDT, I take your point, unfortunately I didn't express myself very well in my earlier post, I was talking about men bullying, being violent to, and/or beating women, rape is different.

I don't believe that it is what most men do, or that it's normal behaviour, I'm not saying that it doesn't exist, I believe that type of behaviour is unhealthy, someone who does those types of things has something wrong with them, as there is something wrong with a woman who is attracted to women beaters.
