"If you lie to a girl, and then have sex with her, that's rape."
"If a girl has been drinking, and you have sex with her, that's rape."
"If a girl says no, but you pressure her into saying yes, and then you have sex with her, that's rape."
I too had to look up the definition of "negging." I suppose it's a fair exchange: We neg, they nag!
More seriously, doesn't this stuff show the inherent contraction in feminist thought: On the one hand, women are claimed to be strong, intelligent, self-reliant and capable--capable indeed of taking on any traditional male occupation, now including combat military service.
On the other hand, women are childlike innocents, easily traumatized by so much as a dirty joke, and to be protected against machinations of lustful, predatory males at all costs. It's really a very Victorian idea of womanhood.
As for "negging," that sounds like something out of those stupid, "How to Pick Up and Score with Women" books (and videos, I suppose these days). Any woman dumb enough to be taken in by such silly-ass head games deserves not only to be f*cked but probably a dose of dry anal into the bargain!
Feminism has been a veritable plague on the land!
