Melanie Phillips is now whining about rape and how the ‘feminist Sisterhood’ is responsible for the tendency of false allegations being made against poor, emasculated men. The specious nonsense she writes would be hilarious if not for the fact that The Daily Mail has a readership of nearly five million. M. Phil., like Ann Widdecombe, believes that a lot of rape cases are just drunken misunderstandings between couples or something similarly benign. Here’s a justification which wouldn’t look conspicuous in a radical Islamist’s marriage handbook.
Thus a woman is encouraged to claim she has been raped when, for example, with the benefit of hindsight, she may become aggrieved about what she voluntarily allowed to happen, particularly when she was rather the worse for wear.
This is disturbing.
