Amanda Marcotte Says That
You Want to Rape Her!
And you might want to know more about it. Did Amanda Marcotte really say this? Well you can be the judge. Have a look at the following egregious gaffe and then tell me what your verdict is:
So, Amanda Marcotte appears to be saying (in the blasé tonality of a young urban sophisticate) that any man who will not be silent about false rape accusation is a potential rapist!
"I concede that a tiny, inconsequential fraction of rape accusations are false. But I also won't be alone in a room with a man that goes on and on about false rape accusations. Said obsession indicates ulterior motives." - Amanda Marcotte - 06/08/2010, 13:08:43
Yes. That is what Amanda Marcotte appears to be saying.
And not only a "potential" rapist, but a probable one too! Notice her exact wording:
"Said obsession indicates ulterior motives."
Amanda Marcotte does not soften that phrase with modifiers. She does not inform us that said obsession only might indicate ulterior motives, that it only implies or hints at such motives, or that she only feels that it so implies or so hints.
Nor does she employ the Dennis Miller gambit, by saying "that's my opinion, I could be wrong."
No, she lays her position down in blunt, unequivocally factualistic terms. On the plain face of Amanda Marcotte's words, there is naught else to infer but that any man who is "obsessed" with the issue of false rape accusation has "ulterior motives" — not might have, but HAS! Clearly and categorically!
Amanda Marcotte has used a weasel sentence, as I will call it. For she does not directly tell us what she means by "ulterior motives", but embeds this in a context that leaves almost no room for any interpretation but the one I have indicated.
Once again: that any man who will not be silent about false rape accusation is a potential rapist!
Yes. That is what Amanda Marcotte appears to be saying.
Such a man's ostensible motive might be political, but according to Amanda Marcotte his ulterior motive is personal. How very like a feminist, to amalgamate the personal with the political! So in plain English, Amanda Marcotte is saying that such a man is motivated by the personal desire to commit rape. I see no other construction to draw from Amanda Marcotte's words.
Why else would Amanda Marcotte not be alone in a room with such a man? Does Amanda mean to say, that if she were alone in a room with such a man he would try to sell her the Brooklyn bridge, or steal her handbag, or entrap her in a drug trafficking sting? Would that be his ulterior motive?
Or. . . does Amanda mean to say, that if she were alone in a room with such a man, he would try to rape her?
Yes, that is what I think Amanda Marcotte means to say. I really do.
And so, tying this all together once again, Amanda Marcotte says that if you are a man who "goes on and on" about false rape accusation, then she would not be alone in a room with you because she expects that you would have the ulterior motive of raping her.
Let us be extremely clear: Amanda Marcotte is saying that men (such as your present author) who are passionately outspoken on the subject of false rape accusation, are really just rapists at heart.
That is what Amanda Marcotte is saying. Yes, I say it, and if Amanda has anything to say for herself she can jolly well speak up loud and straight.
Amanda is guilty until proven innocent. It is not our task to prove Amanda Marcotte—or any other feminist—innocent of being a feminist!
Personally, I would not be alone in a room with Amanda Marcotte because I think she would harbor the ulterior motive of falsely accusing me, and would gladly see me go to prison—especially after reading this! Yes, I think Amanda Marcotte is exactly that kind of person. I am convinced that she is morally capable of this; I do not put it past her.
And I don't need to prove a bloody thing, so she had better get busy and talk her way out of it!
Yes: Amanda Marcotte is a potential rape liar!
I say she is.
In addition, Amanda Marcotte is a sickening moral idiot, a brazen intellectual coward, a filthy sexist bigot, and to top it off, a plain old-fashioned hypocrite. And she is unafraid to flaunt these qualities loudly and proudly because she thinks she can get away with it. Po' little princess never got a taste of her own shit when she was growing up. Somebody spoiled her. She fancies herself bullet-proof to the critical gaze and moral intelligence of other people only because she is STUFFED FULL OF HERSELF. And full of other ingredients also, I might add.
Furthermore, as a strong, independant feminist woman, Amanda Marcotte is "empowered" to behave this way. You see, Amanda is not alone—she has peer support! The entire feminist tribe of planet Earth, male and female alike, has got her back! Ain't that swell? Amanda Marcotte need not ever answer to anybody except a "jury of her peers"—because non-feminists and all those other "little people" aren't really people at all . . . are they?
But anyhow, don't play chickenshit with me, Amanda Marcotte! If you think I am a "potential" rapist, then step right up and say it to my face. Just say it!
And if you really, really think I would rape you if I were alone with you, then step right up and say that to my face. Just say it!
I have already told you exactly what I think of YOU: I think that you, Amanda Marcotte, would lie about rape and never give it a second thought!
All right, so you got something to say to ME now?? Then be a "man" about it , grrrl! I dare you.
You are perfectly entitled to your "opinion", as I am entitled to mine, and I will not hold it against you. But here's the deal: I want you to be OPEN about this! I want you to scream it in my face and then scream it to the whole wide world! Don't be bashful! Go for it, you little potential rape liar!
Front and center, Amanda! Front and center!
