In the link, Miss Witch Wind starts off with the obvious:
Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple.
Uh, what is PIV you asked?
OK I think its actually safe for work.
Penis in vagina.
Until I read the blog post last week, I sort of heard about this way, way, way over at the beyond fever swamps. And yet, thanks to Miss Witch Wind, its has moved just to the way over beyond the fever swamp.
Oh, how am I certain to refer to her as Miss Witch Wind? Come on, you really have to ask?
But she actually does raise some interesting thoughts.
Do we men really coerce a girl from the earliest of ages possible that having sexual relations with a male is wonderful? Well, according to Miss Witch Wind, why that is exactly what us eeeeevvvvviiiiilllll men do:
There's a reason men need to groom us into it: and why this grooming takes so long-because it is grossly violating an traumitising that we would otherwise never submit to intercourse. The only reason we may now not feel or have the impression that we desired or initiated PIV, is because men broke down our barriers very skillfully and progressively from birth, breaking down our natural defences to pain and invasion, our confidence in our own perceptions and sensations of fear and disgust that tell us male sexual invasion painful, harmful and traumatic.
I suspect that Miss Witch Wind is English judging by her use of the Queen's English in the above.
Yes, we eeeeevvvvviiiiilllll men have from the beginning of time have essentially lied to women to get our rocks off, to be blunt.
There is a lot to ask here.
So, Miss Witch Wind, how should a woman engage in sex? I am to assume that only with each other. Because there is absolutely no way that a woman-to-woman relationship would be painful, harmful and or traumatic, right?
Sorry for the graphicness, but a question for Miss Witch Wind and her followers.
Is there never any insertion into the vagina in woman-to-woman sex? Do women not use hands, fingers, sexual toys? And if there is, well does it not cause pain? Is not potentially harmful? And if it is with the wrong woman, can it not be traumatic?
Let me backup and let Miss Witch Wind explain why it is awful, just awful for women to engage in sex with men:
First, well sex is NEVER sex for women. Only men experience rape as sexual and define it as such. Sex for men is the the unilateral penetration of the penis in the woman (or anything else replacing and symbolising the female orifice) whether she thinks she wants it or not - which is the definition of rape: that he will do it anyway and that he uses as a recepticle, in all circumstances - it makes no difference to him experiencing it as sexual. That is, at the very least, men use women as useful objects and instruments of penetration, and women are dehumanized by this act. It is an act of violence.
UGH! Where, where to begin?
My serious thought is that Miss Witch Wind was really raped and that traumatized her about sex for the rest of her life. But I do not know for she does not state anything like that in this piece. So I guess I can't write that with certainty.
So let me try some other things to figure this out.
Miss Witch Wind clearly does not grasp real rape. Yes, sex is not rape as Miss Witch Wind describes it.
Here is the Oxford dictionary definition of rape (as a verb):
(especially of a man) force (another person) with the offender against their will.
Note a couple of things.
While it does define rape as especially done by men, it is not limited to men. It is not limited to gender. It against the other person's will.
Sorry Miss Witch Wind, whether it is through the eeeeevvvvviiiiilllll men "grooming" from a young age women or just the natural reality of something along the lines of procreation and or yes, sexual gratification, most women, heterosexual, homosexual, trannies, like and enjoy sex so long as they are not forced to do any act that they do not want to. The blanket statement in the beginning, that all penis-in-vagina sex is rape is kind of, no totally, stupid. Does Miss Witch Wind not realize that men in prison rape other men? And it is almost always rape. It is not sexual in so much as it is about power. The big guys in the prison need to continue their aggressive behavior and they look for what they suspect is a weak link. Once they figure it out, they get their mark and, against that man's will, forcibly penetrate him. Oh, and women can do the same thing to other women and yes, men.
Miss Witch Wind goes on to realize, grudgingly, that some women want that penis to penetrate them. Yet those women are just not aware that, well no matter what they are being raped. The women, that claims to enjoy it, well if you only knew.
Here is something for Miss Witch Wind.
Let's see, I will assume that you were conceived in the traditional way. A man
But wait! Miss Witch Wind does have a suggestion for that icky penis penetration for pregnancy.
Unfortunately, you have to read in the sycophantic comments to find her solution, but I'll save you the trouble:
For instance, putting sperm on the vulva is enough to become pregnant.
And this is just funny:
Women, if they wanted to become pregnant, could just ask a man for sperm and apply it herself.
Yeah, I'm sure a woman is just gonna go to some guy, maybe a close friend, and ask, "Say,
So, she seems to be down with artificial insemination. But again, she's not down with being pregnant. And I think you just need to read that yourselves in the comments.
Oh, darn! Once this post exploded on the conservative blogosphere, Miss Witch Wind decided to close the comments. But go ahead and read em anyhow. They are as mind bending as the post itself.
Miss Witch Wind defines herself as a radical feminist or radfem. No, really?!
To me, this is the end result of what radfem leads to. The total hatred of men. The thought that the male of the species is so conspiratorial that we could have pulled this off. Of course there is the ignorance of the mammal aspect that allowed her to be a part of this world in the first place.
What is totally missing from this screed is what I believe is important in all relationships to one degree or another.
Sure, Miss Witch Wind talks about the mechanics only. Nothing more, nothing less.
Yet as a Christian, this biblical verse explains the meaning of love between a man and a woman.
In the gospel of Mark (10:8), Jesus Christ explains that a man will leave his family, marry a woman and that the two become one. There is no differences of gender. While historically, men have abused this, through studying of the Holy Bible we come to realize that men and women are equal. Genetically, they are not. But if a man and woman is in a mutually loving relationship, ideally marriage, then sexual relations are not some act of violence but a man and a woman showing true to to each other. If it is a mutually loving relationship, if a woman does not want a man to do something in the sexual act, the man will not do so.
What I fear is that many women who attend college will be influenced by such quackery. Do not think it does not happen. It is not serious thinking but fear-mongering. Fear-mongering that can not be totally dealt with by men but by women. Thus I appeal to thinking women to counter this quackery.
For I speak for most men. We are not rapists!
