The title speaks for itself – this is a must read!
“Don’t trust your male friends. Don’t go to a man’s home at night unless you’re prepared to have sex with him. Don’t disrobe in front of a male masseur. If you take a job as a masseuse, don’t be shocked if your male customers think you’re a prostitute.”
Don’t trust any male friend? Ever? Or just ones a certain age or race or marital status? What about older married white guys, like Rottenberg?
“Conquering an unwilling sex partner is about as much drama as a man can find without shooting a gun,” opines Rottenberg.
In less than 800 words, Rottenberg normalizes the desire to rape; attributes that desire to rape to all men; rates rape just under shooting a gun on the drama scale; and saddles women and girls with the responsibility of avoiding being attacked.
