"Lidija Praizovic read a brave attack on feminism's sacred cows"
"In the wake of Metoo-the movement, I read two books that relate different to the rape and sexual abuse."
"The american writer Roxane Gay in the anthology Not so dangerous, gathered 30 votes on the rape and abuse. The stories follow the predictable script."
"the Dedication on the first page says what it's about: ”To all those that have been composed but of våldtäktskulturen but which, after all, has survived.” In the preface clarifies Gay: ”How is it to live in a culture where it often seems as if it's just a matter of time before a woman experience some form of sexual violence? How is it for men to navigate in våldtäktskulturen, whether they are indifferent to it, work to stop it or contribute to it in large or small?”"
"29 of the contributors are writing from personal experience. The woman falls in almost all the cases, the victims of the man-the perpetrator. Many are traumatized for life by the rough rape. The other is destroyed by the more low-frequency harassment."
"You should be hårdhudad to not be affected by the painful experience. We know that rape and sexual abuse happens. All too often. Of course, we must demand an end to it."
"nSamtidigt is most of the stories in Not so dangerous blatant stereotypes: The naive student who is raped by the savvy man in the Porsche, the black teenage girl who is raped by his black father, and all of the Black moral majority keeps silent in order not to defile the Black Family's respectability, the curvy milf-mother with D-cup not even when she walks on the street with their small daughters are protected from men's sexist shouts. The titles are tiresome: ”Slakthusön”, ”Livsförstöraren”, ”All the angry women”, ”Nice girls”, ”To know better”, ”Why I not said " no” ... A woman, for example, will never be the same after seeing a man masturbate against her on a tågperrong."
"The stereotypical excludes, of course, not that the stories are also true. But few of the stories in this book manage to deepen, to develop, to say something new or unexpected about this, indulging in alarmism and genomtröskade substance."
"Partly, it is because the short format. At 270 pages, 30 life-changing stories pinched in and the conclusions to be extracted. The shortest may not even three pages in."
"was German kulturhistorikern and journalist Mithu M Sanyals book Rape – aspects of a crime is something else. A brave and controversial book which challenges our most ingrained standards."
"Sanyal is a feminist but do not be afraid to kill some of feminism's sacred cows, such as the Susan Brownmillers very influential book Rape from 1975. The book was important at its time, but now needs something else, says Sanyal."
"Sanyals thesis is the following: concepts such as ”rape” and ”våldtäktskultur” is never unproblematic. They are genompolitiserade and mined. Why do we expect that someone who is a victim of rape should be forever traumatized while we do not see in the same way to victims of other violent crime?"
"She goes thoroughly to weigh, from Aristotle to our time."
"Our time perceptions of victims of rape rests on the classic ancient notions about women's honour is linked to her body, and that the man can abduct this so that she becomes wounded in their hearts and violated for life."
"just keep us with two variables – the dangerous, it's the male perpetrator and the good, vulnerable female victim – we maintain the primitive gender roles that would not be considered okay in other contexts. We teach our daughters to have the courage to say no, and our sons to ask for a yes."
"until recently, be it in principle, only the men that could be convicted of rape. Even if the law today is gender-neutral in many countries, and studies show that sexualbrottsutsatthet also greatly applies to men, so is rape and sexual abuse against men is still a tabuområde that is hard to swallow, and provocative for many – in particular, whether the offences are committed by women."
"you the book discussed much: Emmett till, Julian Assange, Natascha could, flee, Roman Polanski, the Abu Ghraib prison, Metoo, triggervarningar, the Swedish samtyckeslagen, the sexual masstrakasserierna in Cologne on new year's eve 2015 ..."
"just keep us with two variables – the dangerous, it's the male perpetrator and the good, vulnerable female victim – we maintain primitive gender roles"
"Among other shows Sanyal how the racist tankekedjan refugees = våldtäksmän = not welcome penetrated into people's minds. How else to explain that asylum seekers are being hunted out of the western democracies of the vigilante and politicians if they take the one woman in the pussy, while the white billionaire with thatch, who boasted that he used to ”take them in the pussy” and ”without waiting for consent,” is the president of the world's so called largest democracy in the world?"
"nOch how do we treat really the perpetrators? Sanyal describes a contemporary climate in which våldtäktsanklagade men – even if they have not been legally sentenced to the paria, which, by ran in the social and established media are losing their jobs, the standings and are evicted out of society."
"But not legally convicted men who served their sentences and been released, we can manage. In general the open-minded feminists like Caitlin Moran can write: ”I begin to see the sensible in selecting about a hundred rapists and to make their lives public and the eternally dreadful – unrelentingly humiliating, without prospect of grace.”"
"Sanyal says on the contrary: ”the Method to ’skambelägga’ rapists prevents change, for if one denies a person's humanity, you take away her right to the property she needs to look at what she has done and understand that she has made other people ill.”"
"nVisst there are evil, sadistic rapists who want to see women suffer, but for the most part, it is about the very banalare things as sexual dysfunktionalitet, solidified ”truths” about gender and sexuality and the lack of communication from both sides. We shared, all the sex, have the responsibility to change the society."
"”The worst kind of powerlessness, is not knowing that one has the power that you actually have,” says Sanyal wise his book."
