It’s the year 3017, and we’ve reduced the cases of rape in our society to as close to “zero” as any of us ever dreamed possible.
Once we started giving men the choice to control their own penises–and stopped punishing them for things we may not agree with–the statistics showed a dramatic drop in rapes!
There was a time when our country criminalized and punished men for choosing to engage in sex with someone who didn’t want it.
But, of course, that didn’t solve the problem.
Punishments for rapists were harsh; women marched against “Rape Culture”; and the best and brightest minds on the planet tried coming up with ways to prevent the violence.
But reports of assault (especially on college campuses) continue to climb. Clearly, it wasn’t working!
Making rape illegal wasn’t the answer!
No one was able to come up with a viable, workable solution for the problem.
I can hardly imagine what that must have been like, back in the year 2017, when rape was illegal.
I mean, I understand why some people didn’t support a man’s right to choose. (Personally, I could never rape someone.) But, we know we’re muuuuuch better off now that we have solutions for making rape safe and rare.
Sure, they still happen. But, statistically, we’re better off.
Now that rape is legal, the number of rapes has dropped!
It’s so brilliant that it’s amazing to consider people 1000 years ago didn’t have the courage to legalize rape.
Now society understands that we need to be supportive of men who are making a rape decision. We know that, most of the time, with the right love and encouragement, they will decide not to go through with a full-blown rape.
Most men settle for simply kissing an unwilling woman on the cheek, or quickly patting one of her breasts, rather than violently penetrating a female blob-of-cells.
So…since the instances of violent rapes are down, it’s mission accomplished. Things are MUCH better than they used to be.
I can’t think of anything more compassionate and understanding than decriminalizing rapists, which results in a workable solution to this problem…
All we have to do is respect the complexity of the issue, and trust men to do what’s right with their own bodies!
Repeat after me: “It’s your penis; your choice.”
Such a simple solution to the “rapes will happen anyway” problem.
