In an article for the Guardian, White appeared to be deeming sexual harassment and abuse as tiny issues. He defended this by arguing that things have improved vastly for women in the past century. What, so because things are better than they used to be, we are supposed to suffer sexual harassment, abuse and rape and not fight it because “things have improved”? I found it revolting.
If you dispute my allegations that people think women are responsible for being raped due to wearing provocative clothing, please have a read of this, this and this. I expect that you will also be shocked to find that 17% of 1,800 respondents believed rape happens because men are unable to control their need for sex, and that nearly 15% believed a rape victim's dress or state of sobriety influenced rape.
Obviously I'm not blind to the fact that there are a number of women who have accused a man of false rape. This tends to happen when a woman feels embarrassed of her actions, and it has even been known to happen in cases of high profile celebrity men being accused of rape, with an ulterior motive of perhaps getting compensation. This behaviour is not condoned - it is unjust and clearly distressing.
I'm also not blind to the fact that men are also victims of rape, and this is equally as harrowing, and wrong.
