What K. C. Johnson, Cathy Young, and, yes, Taranto were objecting to was the claim that if a man and a woman decide to have sex after drinking, this is tantamount to sexual assault or rape.

What ever happened to “No means No.”? When a woman says “No” when asked whether she was raped, what right does the survey taker have to turn that “No” into a “Yes” upon learning that drinking had occurred first? If this is as valid, the 1 in 5 figure should be much closer to 5 in 5.

not so much

“If two drunk drivers are in a collision, one doesn’t determine fault on the basis of demographic details such as each driver’s sex. But when two drunken college students “collide,” the male one is almost always presumed to be at fault. His diminished capacity owing to alcohol is not a mitigating factor, but her diminished capacity is an aggravating factor for him.

As the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education notes, at some campuses the accuser’s having had one drink is sufficient to establish the defendant’s guilt … In theory that means, as FIRE notes, that “if both parties are intoxicated during sex, they are both technically guilty of sexually assaulting each other.” In practice it means that women, but not men, are absolved of responsibility by virtue of having consumed alcohol.”


that is devastating for anyone who tries to defend it. Taranto is a well documented misogynist, and this just lends further credibility to that
designation..

“On July 25, 2012, Taranto sparked outrage online by posting the following comment to his Twitter account, in reference to the victims and survivors of the July 2012 Aurora, Colorado mass shooting: “I hope the girls whose boyfriends died to save them were worthy of the sacrifice”.[18][19]”

Taranto: Effort To Address Rising Sexual Assault In Military A Sign Of “Effort To Criminalize Male Sexuality.” In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece, Taranto wrote that an effort by Sen. Claire McCaskill to address the growing problem of sexual abuse in the military was evidence of “a war on men — a political campaign against sexual assault in the military that shows signs of becoming an effort to criminalize male sexuality.” [The Wall Street Journal, 6/17/13]

Taranto: “War On Men” A Result Of “Female Sexual Freedom.” On the June 18 edition of the Opinion Journal Live, a Wall Street Journal webcast that features members of its editorial board, Taranto doubled down on his claims, explaining that a military sexual assault case under investigation is evidence of a “war on men” that began with “female sexual freedom”:


TARANTO: Well, it all goes back to the beginning of contemporary feminism in the early ’60s. You know, women wanted to be equal to men, they wanted to be able to do all the sort of professional things including the military that men could do, and —

KISSEL: Was there anything wrong with that, though, James? I mean, that sounds —

TARANTO: Well, that’s too long to go into now, the question of what’s wrong with that, but in addition they wanted sexual freedom. Well what is female sexual freedom? It means, for this woman, that she had the freedom to get drunk, and to get in the backseat of the car with this guy. There was another woman who accused him, he was acquitted in this case, of sexual assault. This so-called assault happened in his bedroom, to which she voluntarily accompanied him, even the jury said that was consensual. [WSJ Live, Opinion Journal Live, 6/18/13, via Media Matters]


Taranto: “Salon’s Joan Walsh Is Spoiling For A Catfight With Our Colleagues.”


Taranto Promotes “Evolutionary Psychology” That “Contradicts The Feminist Dogma That The Sexes Are Created Equal.” In his January 14 column, Taranto wrote that the theory of evolution demonstrated that “[m]en incline toward promiscuity, women toward hypergamy.” Taranto concluded that “evolutionary psychology contradicts the feminist dogma that the sexes are created equal”:

Why would the New York Times, which scoffs at creationism, publish such an intellectually slipshod attack on evolution? Because evolutionary psychology contradicts the feminist dogma that the sexes are created equal, that all differences between men and women (or at least those differences that represent male dominance or superiority) are pure products of cultural conditioning.

Feminism is the new creationism. The left loves to scoff at people who believe that Genesis is literally true, but these days feminist beliefs are a lot more influential. [The Wall Street Journal, 1/14/13]


Taranto: “Feminism’s Latest Triumph” Is That “Boys Are Afraid Of Girls.” In an April 13, 2012, column, headlined “Isn’t It Romantic? Feminism’s latest triumph: Boys are afraid of girls,” Taranto wrote that “there is good reason for males (men as well as boys) to be more fearful of sex than females. Contemporary reproductive technology and law place all the burden for unwanted pregnancy on them”:


Taranto: “Contemporary Feminism Is A Sweet Deal For Hedonistic Men” And “Based On A False Theory Of Equality.” In his March 12, 2012, column, Taranto wrote that “contemporary feminism is a totalitarian ideology” that is “based on a false theory of equality.” Taranto further wrote:


soooooooooo…… still want to defend taranto? because i have much much much much much much more…

Oh, yeah, because every guy who accompanies a woman to a private spot intends on treating her like a sex slave. She just consented to be the tool of his fantasies.

I had a hospital call like this. Guy and girl decided to spend some time together — she cries rape. Well, yeah she didn’t in her wildest dreams think this guy that she knew and liked would be brutal and perverted (in her mind). She says rape —he says “sucker”.

Just because you have her alone doesn’t me she has consented to anything.

re: #4 FemNaziBitch

I wonder how much of that comes from the idea that “if a man is sexually interested in someone, and the physical and biological sexual systems are percolating, a man is entitled to get what he deserves - and he deserves her”
