Radical Honesty SA: Re: SlutWalk & Conspiracy of Academic Silence on Do-Sluts-Want-to-be-Raped Research






WHAT REALLY TURNS PEOPLE ON? Men and women haven't been honest—with themselves or each other. What they say they like is often quite different from what they look for when nobody is watching. But how can we learn the truth? Two bold young neuroscientists have initiated a revolution in the scientific study of sexual attraction. Before Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam, the only researcher to systematically investigate sexual desires was Alfred Kinsey, who surveyed 18,000 middle-class Caucasians in the 1950s. But Ogas and Gaddam have studied the secret sexual behavior of more than a hundred million men and women around the world. Their method? They observed what people do within the anonymity of the Internet. [A Billion Wicked Thoughts] [Amazon] [The Female Sexual Brain]

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

"Slut Walk" on Hannity: Tamara Holder & Rebecca St. James
I refer to the articles: Sluts of a Feather; Don’t Dress Like a Slut: Toronto Cop; Cop’s ‘slut’ comment draws backlash from guerrilla activists; Cop apologizes for ‘slut’ remarks at law school; Toronto ‘slut walk’ takes to city streets; Slutwalk debated on Hannity: Tamara Holder & Rebecca St. James.

I totally agree with Pfc. Michael Sanguinetti, that any woman who wishes to reduce the likelihood of being raped, should not dress like a slut. Naturally a woman who has not dressed or acted like a slut towards any strange male cannot be blamed for any man’s decision to rape her.

However, in my opinion, as a psychological adult woman, who is capable of taking personal responsibility for my thoughts, actions and intentions; if I made a conscious decision to walk around half-naked in public like a slut; and was honest about my intentions; the message I would be conveying is that I ‘want to be treated like a slut or prostitute’ and hence I am partially responsible for sending out a message inviting a man to believe that I want to be fucked.

It appears to me that women who wish to walk around in public half-naked like sluts, do not want to take personal responsibility for their motives for doing so; and want to totally avoid the consequences of the ‘red-flag-to-any-possible-bull slut message they advertise’.

A simple common sense rule of thumb: Don’t dress or act like a slut in the company of strange men; if you want such men to treat you with respect.

Honourable Decent men who wish to treat all strange women with respect; will do so when such women are dressed modestly, with decency and propriety. Many will even do so, when women are dressed like sluts. Demanding all men treat a woman who dresses like a slut, with decency and propriety is similar to kicking a dog, and demanding he does not bite back.

[1] Common Myths About Castration:
MYTH: castration mutilates a man's body.
FACT: An orchiectomy is a very simple surgical procedure in which a small incision is made to remove the testicles from the scrotum. The operation is far less invasive than a hysterectomy or much of the cosmetic surgery performed today. It typically is an outpatient procedure and replacing the testicles with prostheses makes the procedure virtually undetectable.

MYTH: castration is cruel and unusual punishment.
FACT: What could possibly be cruel about a treatment that allows a person to live a more normal life without the constant urge to molest children? It is unusual in the sense that it is the only permanent treatment that works with the offender.

MYTH: Castration will not be any more effective than conventional counseling.
FACT: European research over the past 30 years shows that in every single clinical study, the re-offender rate drops drastically to lo less than 5% for those who receive the treatment. It is after the surgery has been completed that counseling will be needed in order to aid the offender during the transition of changing lifestyles. Conventional counseling can be effective in conjunction with castration.

MYTH: Castration will only make the offender more violent by using other methods to molest.
FACT: Another positive aspect of castration is that it reduces not only the sexual impulse, but all aggressive traits in a person. A 1991 Czechoslovakian study of 84 castrated sex offenders revealed that only 3 men (out of 84) committed another sex offense after castration, and none were of an aggressive character.

A Danish study in the 1960s that followed 900 castrated sex offenders found that the recidivism rate dropped to 2.2%, and, similarly, none of these offenses were of an aggressive character.

MYTH: Castration is racist punishment.
FACT: Of the 11,000 identified sex offenders in Texas prisons, 45% are white; 24% are African-American and 30% are hispanic.

MYTH: The problem is between the ears, not between the thighs.
FACT: This unsupported opinion is based on the supposition that rape is all about power, domination and control without any sexual component. The clinical studies show that rape is a combination of power, domination and control along with a strong sexual impulse.

It shouldn't really matter which theory of rape is ascribed to. What is much more important is finding treatment that will protect our children.

MYTH: A civilized society cannot permit this barbaric treatment (castration).
FACT: A civilized society, if we dare call ourselves that, cannot permit the numbers of rapes that occur. A civilized society must be open to all treatments of sex offenders in order to change the unconscionable odds we have given to the innocent among us.


Consequences of Castrating (Neutering) Dogs (LadyDogWhisperer):
One of the most extensive studies on the effects of canid castration was carried out by Ben Hart at the University of California, and these are his fascinating statistics:

On the following BEHAVIOURS:
  • Roaming Reduced in 90% of cases:
    • Rapid reduction in 45%
    • Gradual reduction in 45%
    • No effect in only 10%

  • Intermale Aggression Reduced in 60% of cases:
    • Rapid reduction in 25%
    • Gradual reduction in 35%
    • No effect in 40%

  • Mounting People Reduced in 60% of cases:
    • Rapid reduction in 30%
    • Gradual reduction in 30%
    • Some reduction in mounting bitches in season too

  • Urine Marking in the House Reduced in 50% of cases:
    • Rapid reduction in 20%
    • Gradual reduction in 30%


[2] Women as Sex Objects (Scientific American; 17 February 2009)
A new study presented at the recent American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago shows that when men see photos of scantily clad women their brain registers the women as objects to be acted on. Christie Nicholson reports

Do men objectify women? Well some say there may be a tendency, since there’s a booming business in pornography. But to answer the how, when and why men objectify women requires some science.

Princeton psychologist Susan Fiske presented findings from a new study this past Sunday, at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Chicago, where she and her colleagues compared, "...heterosexual men’s perceptions of scantily clad women, scantily clad men, and fully clothed men and women."

And what they found is the 21 male subjects had the best memory for photos of sexy bikini-clad women. No surprise. Then they had the men look at the photos while their brains were scanned and what she found was that, "...this memory correlated with activation in part of the brain that is a pre-motor, having intentions to act on something, so it was as if they immediately thought about how they might act on these bodies."

Fiske explained that the areas, the premotor cortex and posterior middle temporal gyrus, typically light up when one anticipates using tools, like a screwdriver. "I’m not saying that they literally think these photographs of women are photographs of tools per se, or photographs of non-humans, but what the brain imaging data allow us to do is to look at it as scientific metaphor. That is, they are reacting to these photographs as people react to objects."

Fisk also tested the men for levels of sexism and found a surprising effect those who scored high on this test, "...the hostile sexists were likely to deactivate the part of the brain that thinks about other people's intentions. The lack of activation of this social cognition area is really odd, because it hardly ever happens. It’s a very reliable effect, that the medial prefrontal cortex comes online when people think about other people, see pictures of them, imagine other people."

"Normally when you examine social cognition, people’s aim is to figure out what the other person is thinking and intending. And we see in these data really no evidence of that. So the deactivation of medial prefrontal cortex to these pictures is really kind of shocking."

To be sure this is a preliminary study, and Fiske intends to follow up with a larger sample, but nonetheless she concludes, "...these findings are all consistent with the idea that they are responding to these photographs as if they are responding to objects and not to people with independent agency." Fiske suggested that if there are sexualized pictures of women in the workplace, there may be a spillover effect, perhaps influencing the way people perceive female colleagues.


[3] Do Men Want to Rape? Do Women Want to Be Raped? (Psychology Today; by Ogi Ogas, Ph.D., and Sai Gaddam, Ph.D.)
In women's erotica, there is similar ingenuity in the portrayal of dominance and submission--arguably even more than in men's, though it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges since men like images and women like stories. Nevertheless, even a cursory review of fan fiction, romance, erotic romance, slash, and female-authored erotica reveals a kaleidoscopic array of dom and sub tropes, from the blizzard of spanking in Anne Rice's Beauty novels to the violent rapes of romance novel Stormfire to sexual humiliation and outright sadism in darkfic. Many women have dark fantasies, indeed: one woman we interviewed prefers erotic fanfic where Johnny Depp is sexually molested and brutalized.

So the short answer is that there are as many manifestations of the dominance and submission cues in both men and women as there are variations of desserts.

However, we'll go a little further than most scientists. The usual position of academic researchers is that female coercion fantasies involve handsome, attractive strangers who aggressively seduce women in a non-violent way, rather than rape them. Some women certainly have these fantasies. But you don't have to look far on the Internet to find much darker and more violent female fantasies, involving ugly truckers, brutal sex, gang rape, even mutilation. In the Harry Potter fan fiction I read, Draco in particular always seemed to be raping girls. Tracie Egan, who we used in our epigraph, narrates how she paid a male gigalo to enact a forceful rape. During our research, we also encountered women who said they enjoyed role-playing rape—not aggressive seduction. So far, academic politics have prevented sexologists from taking an honest look at the true variety of women's fantasies.

All of this doesn't imply that women genuinely want to be raped, of course. As psychologist Meredith Chivers says, "Arousal is not consent."

We think one reason (among several) that male-male romances have become so popular among women is that it's much easier for a woman to enjoy the dom-sub relationship if there's not a woman involved. As one woman wrote, "I can read and am very fond of [dominant and submissive roles] between two male characters, whereas a male-dom-female-sub heterosexual pairing has to be very specifically written for it not to be upsetting for me. The most seemingly-innocuous things, stuff that's normal enough in such fiction not to merit a warning, will turn it in my head from consensual to rape and/or abuse of power, and the male character from a desirable lover into a threatening tormentor."

But here's something else worth considering—an interesting double standard in sex research. Researchers are in emphatic agreement that female sexual fantasies of rape do not under any circumstances imply that they actually want to be raped. (No argument from us.) On the other hand, what about male sexual fantasies of raping women? In the literature these have long been treated as signs of pathology and as leading indicators of criminal intent. There's even research on how to eliminate male sexual fantasies of rape (not much effective research, however).

Consequently my curiosity regarding your position to: (I) the allegation in Psychology Today that Politically Correct Academic politics has prevented sexologists from taking an honest look at the true variety of women's fantasies; including the double standard in Sex Research that concludes that Female Sexual Fantasies of Rape do not under any circumstances imply they actually want to be raped; but male sexual fantasies of rape are treated as signs of pathology and as leading indicators of criminal intent; (II) Prof. Susan Fiske’s Princeton Univ. study, which found that when men see photo’s of half-naked women, their brain registers the women as sex objects to be acted upon; (III) If there is a difference in instinctual-sexual-predatory behaviour between a bull and ox; stallion and gelding; man and eunuch: Should Matadors who fly ‘red please-fuck-me-slut flags’ before bulls; be supported when they claim victimhood innocence for testosterone enraged bulls over-responding to their ‘red please-fuck-me-slut flags’?

SlutWalk is not sexual liberation

Women need to take to the streets to condemn violence, but not for the right to be called 'slut'

Gail Dines and Wendy J Murphy
guardian.co.uk Sunday 8 May 2011 18.34 BST



It wasn't long ago that being called a "slut" meant social death. No "nice" boy would take you home to meet his parents and no "good" girl would ever be your friend. At the same time, refusing to submit to sex meant you were a "prude" or "frigid". In short, there was no right way to be. Things have improved a bit in that young women are more insistent on their right to sexual autonomy, but sexually active women remain vulnerable to harsh social judgments even as the mass media celebrate and encourage such behaviour. And research shows that the label "slut" still has long-term negative consequences, especially for younger girls.

Nevertheless, a group of activists organised an event called SlutWalk, that took place on Saturday in Boston. It followed on the heels of a similar event in Toronto earlier this month, where women rallied in response to a comment made by a representative of the police that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimised".

To be sure, such a comment from law enforcement is highly offensive in suggesting that some victims of rape are responsible for the criminal acts of their attackers. Rather than admonishing women to dress a certain way, police should be warning potential offenders that they should "avoid assaulting women in order not to go to prison".

The fact that more than 2,000 turned out to march around Boston Common suggests that women are, indeed, hungry for sexual autonomy. But something else was at work here: many of the banners protested the ubiquity of sexual violence in the lives of women. Signs made by protesters showed that women are angry with being blamed for male violence and fed up with the failure of the culture to hold men accountable. Clearly the theme of the SlutWalk has struck a nerve, with similar events being planned around the world, including one in London in June.

The organisers claim that celebrating the word "slut", and promoting sluttishness in general, will help women achieve full autonomy over their sexuality. But the focus on "reclaiming" the word slut fails to address the real issue. The term slut is so deeply rooted in the patriarchal "madonna/whore" view of women's sexuality that it is beyond redemption. The word is so saturated with the ideology that female sexual energy deserves punishment that trying to change its meaning is a waste of precious feminist resources.

Advocates would be better off exposing the myriad ways in which the law and the culture enable myths about all types of women – sexually active or "chaste" alike. These myths facilitate sexual violence by undermining women's credibility when they report sex crimes. Whether we blame victims by calling them "sluts" (who thus asked to be raped), or by calling them "frigid" (who thus secretly want to be overpowered), the problem is that we're blaming them for their own victimisation no matter what they do. Encouraging women to be even more "sluttish" will not change this ugly reality.

As teachers who travel around the country speaking about sexual violence, pornography and feminism, we hear stories from women students who feel intense pressure to be sexually available "on demand". These students have grown up in a culture in which hypersexualized images of young women are commonplace and where hardcore porn is the major form of sex education for young men. They have been told over and over that in order to be valued in such a culture, they must look and act like sluts, while not being labeled slut because the label has dire consequences including being blamed for rape, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and self-mutilation.

Women need to find ways to create their own authentic sexuality, outside of male-defined terms like slut. The recent TubeCrush phenomenon, where young women take pictures of men they find attractive on the London tube and post them to a website, illustrates how easily women copy dominant societal norms of sexual objectification rather than exploring something new and creativeAnd it's telling that while these pictures are themselves innocent and largely free of sexual innuendo, one can only imagine the sexually aggressive language that would accompany a site dedicated to secret photos of women.

While the organisers of the SlutWalk might think that proudly calling themselves "sluts" is a way to empower women, they are in fact making life harder for girls who are trying to navigate their way through the tricky terrain of adolescence.

Women need to take to the streets – but not for the right to be called "slut". Women should be fighting for liberation from culturally imposed myths about their sexuality that encourage gendered violence. Our daughters – and our sons – have the right to live in a world that celebrates equally women's sexual freedom and bodily integrity.
