There’s a blog post that talks about PIV(Penis In Vagina) and how it is always rape. I find it hard to believe reasonable people would take it seriously but it has ended up being discussed over and over again in some discussion groups I’m in. Comments aren’t allowed on that blog post page anymore, and even if they were, I’m under the impression that any disagreement would be deleted and the commenter blocked. So, I’m going to post about it here.
I’m not going to dissect the whole thing. Basically, my take on it is that this person, who describes herself as a “radfem”, is either trolling(Law of Poe) or she is an irrational person. Probably the latter. The idea that women have no agency to consent is absurd, and she doesn’t get to tell us otherwise. Furthermore, treating sex as if it’s some horrendous violent thing is as warped as some who treat is as a dirty sinful thing. Or a perverted thing. While some sex may be dirty, or perverted, this probably wouldn’t describe the sex of most couples.
Also, pretending all PIV sex is rape is deliberately making light of actual rape experienced by rape victims. Consensual sex with your partner is not on the level of non-consensual sex with anyone. Pretending women can’t consent is a farce.
I really hope people aren’t taking her seriously, she does not represent feminism in any way. She makes light of rape, and she is of the mind set that women have no will of their own, which is pretty anti-feminist, in my opinion. I encourage others who disagree with her to make your opinion known either through your own blog post, or a youtube video response.
One of the downsides of following issues of science denialism is that you often have to encounter the very worst of our society. There are allot of unpleasant characters out there who take advantage of people either for some quick cash or to back an ideology.
Stephanie Messenger is one such individual. She has written a book titled Melanie’s Marvellous Measles where she glorifies childhood disease. To make matters worse the book is intended for children, to tell them that disease is a good thing.
This book takes children aged 4 – 10 years on a journey of discovering about the ineffectiveness of vaccinations, while teaching them to embrace childhood disease, heal if they get a disease, and build their immune systems naturally. -Book Description
Meanwhile the World Health Organisation has this to say about Measles:
Measles is a highly contagious, serious disease caused by a virus. In 1980, before widespread vaccination, measles caused an estimated 2.6 million deaths each year.
It remains one of the leading causes of death among young children globally, despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine. An estimated 164 000 people died from measles in 2008 – mostly children under the age of five. -World Health Organisation
Yet, people like Stephanie Messenger openly advocate Measles for children. Messenger is not a doctor, knows nothing of medicine and yet she tells children that disease is good for them. Contrary to the overwhelming consensus of the medical community.
Stephanie Messenger is an inhumane child disease advocate. It is sickening that people like her exist, but unfortunately they do and those of us who see these people with their true colours have a moral obligation to shine the spotlight on them.
