Porn Fuels ‘Rape Culture’

avatar

By Jonathon van Maren

On the heels of a number of alleged sexual assaults at the University of Ottawa, the topic of “rape culture” is again in the headlines. Additionally, a U of O student leader Anne-Marie Roy revealed that in a Facebook conversation, several male student leaders had made sexually explicit comments about her—with one comment stating that she should be “sexually punished.” These new incidents bring to mind incidents occurring last year at St. Mary’s University, in which a frosh-week chant had male students chanting support for non-consensual, underage sex—“U is for underage! N is for no consent!”—and a variety of other disgusting and explicit lyrics. In response, a new group at the University of Ottawa has launched a website titled “Let’s Talk About Rape Culture.”

Yes, let’s do that.

Firstly, there really should be no confusion regarding what is and what is not rape, in spite of the misogynist, sexually violent filth such as “Blurred Lines” pumped out by pop stars such as Robin Thicke. No means no. Drunk or otherwise impaired means no. Saying nothing means no. Anything—anything—other than an explicit, crystal-clear invitation means no. Are there “different types” of rape? Sure. But any form at all of non-consensual sex is still rape, and should be treated as such, both legally and otherwise. Rape is not just “a mistake” you make. It is sexual assault.

Secondly, there is an obvious underlying reason for why many people are beginning to trivialize sexual violence: pornography. Let me explain.

The use of pornography in our constantly online, wired-in 21st century culture is almost completely pandemic. By the time young adulthood is reached, 64-68 percent of young adult men and 19 percent of women are using porn every single week. An additional 17 percent of men and 30 percent of women are using porn one to two times a month. In other words, if you are currently not using pornography, you are in a minority.

How does this trivialize sexual violence? Consider these statistics, from a new anti-porn group called Fight the New Drug: “A few years ago, a team of researchers looked at the most popular porn films—the ones bought and rented most often. Of the 304 scenes, 88% contained physical violence. 49% contained verbal aggression. In total, only one scene in 10 didn’t contain any aggression, and the typical scene averaged 12 physical or verbal attacks. One action-packed scene managed to fit in 128.”

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
