The Dems will do anything to create a controversy, even if it means redefining words.
Check out the new Liberalized version of domestic violence.
According to the University of Michigan, all these acts fall under domestic sexual violence:
- withholding sex and affection;
- discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex;
- having sex with other people; insulting your partner;
- ignoring the partner’s feelings;
- withholding approval as a form of punishment;
- yelling at the partner;
- labeling the partner with terms like ‘crazy,’ ‘stupid.’
What are you in jail for, Dude?
I forgot to hug my wife!
Careful feminazis as it will work both ways, and the “I have a headache” routine could get you arrested.
One analysts rightly said this:
“These kinds of policies contribute to an increasing level of sexual misconduct hysteria and essentially create a chilling climate for young men,” Bloomfield said. “When things like ‘withholding sex’ and ‘ignoring a partner’s feelings’ are framed as a pattern of behavior that is abusive, they are not only pathologizing [sic] normal relationship behaviors, but they are opening the door for vindictive or spurned partners to make allegations that can have profound effects for the accused.”
I’m going to start the abuse now by calling the people who impose these policies crazy and stupid, and from now on, I will ignore their feelings.
In case you are wondering where this nonsense originates, Team Obama launched the sexual violence awareness campaign, “It’s On Us,” six weeks before midterm elections. They hope to get those abused young co-eds to vote early and often, likely in between their sexcapades.
The problem with things like this is they suck the oxygen out of the real domestic violence that occurs far too often in this country. You must remember that Liberals are not trying to solve problems, but to identify more victims.
As with the “gender pay gap,” statistics are used in a way to best benefit the rhetoric.
Accurate statistics are of limited use in that regard because rape and sexual assault have been declining for decades. So the Obama administration and its allied activist groups trot out the claim that there is a rape epidemic victimizing one in five women on college campuses.
This conveniently horrifying number is a classic example of being too terrible to check. If it were true, it would mean that rape would be more prevalent on elite campuses than in many of the most impoverished and crime-ridden communities.
It comes from tendentious Department of Justice surveys that count “attempted forced kissing” and other potentially caddish acts that even the DOJ admits “are not criminal.”
According to one Department of Justice survey, more than half the respondents said they didn’t report the assault because they didn’t think “the incident was serious enough to report.” More than a third said they weren’t clear on whether the incident was a crime or even if harm was intended.
But President Barack Obama uses these surveys to justify using the terms “rape” and “sexual assault” interchangeably.
