Sample text

In addition to distorting the picture of who rapes, the false polarization between Rape and rape distorts the image of who gets raped. ” This polarization serves to assure ordinary women that they can’t be raped as long as they are careful. It also stigmatizes all rape victims in accordance with the idea that women who are raped are really just getting what they asked for. Limiting the use of the word rape to “Real Rape” sends the message that nonconsensual sex is acceptable unless it is especially violent and with a stranger.

As I mentioned above, attempts to limit the use of the word rape to the description of stereotypical Rapes are part of backlash efforts to keep acquaintance rape from becoming part of the cultural vocabulary. It is a form of erasure as well as an example of false polarization. The division between rape and Rape is an important one. It serves to limit the concept of rape to extremely violent rapes by strangers. This kind of rape represents the minority of actual rape cases. The false polarization of rape and Rape discourages women who are raped by acquaintances, boyfriends, or husbands from reporting the rape, or even calling it what it is.

Thus, despite Time’s attempts to trivialize acquaintance rape as a figment of the overactive imaginations of victimhood-inducing feminists, the term acquaintance rape allows women to name their rape experiences and get on with the recovery process, a necessity that, to the detriment of women, was previously denied. False polarization False polarization is the creation and maintenance of artificial divisions between things that are not inherently opposite. ” This includes decisively distinguishing rapists from regular men, and distinguishing “rapeable” women from “normal” women.
