Now don't get me wrong.
I am NOT advocating or encouraging that guys out there break the law and commit a felony crime.
Don't even THINK about doing something like that.
But when a report like the one below pops up, you really have wonder if rape provokes the same kind of outrage as before, given what American women have become over the years.
According to the report below, the defense is claiming that 9 women lied about the rape charge. OTOH, these women could be telling the truth. Or maybe some of what they allege are true, some are not. I don't know what happened, and I won't make any judgment either on who is guilty or innocent.
I do know that current rape laws in the US make it much easier for a woman to hit a man with a felony charge of rape, even if she bears a lot of the blame for what took place. Or even if nothing of the sort took place at all. An accusation of rape is virtually an automatic conviction for men.
I also know that if these women had not chosen to enter the professional world of modeling, which is actually a pretty sleazy business, the chances of their being in a situation where they could have been sexually assaulted would have been slim to none.
Women were much safer when traditional controls were imposed on them. By having the goal of being a stay-at-home wife with a husband (as opposed to being a career woman in order to be independent of men), women could count on being protected from threats of rape. A woman who stayed home didn't put herself in situations that might increase the chances of her being raped. And by committing herself to just one man, a woman behaved properly; she knew she had to be chaste in her demeanor towards other men so as not to give the appearance of inviting sex, and therefore putting herself at risk of being sexually assaulted.
Current rape law is a result of the feminist movement. When traditional controls on women are loosened, women become freer and independent to roam around without a man by their side, which puts them at a much higher risk of being sexually assaulted. So the more independent and free women have become, the more repressive rape laws have to be towards men.
Unfortunately, there is little men can do to reform or change the law since women (whether they identify themselves as feminist or not) will never, ever allow the current law to be changed. Many, many innocent women (and men) will have to be destroyed first before women finally realize that "gender equality" actually harms them.
Current rape law is just one more sad example of how feminist measures taken to empower women have only de-valued their worth to men -- and have even endangered their lives.

LOS ANGELES—A defense attorney for fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander told jurors Friday in closing arguments that his client should be acquitted of rape charges because his accusers are lying and seeking revenge.
"How many times did you hear 'I don't recall' from them during the trial?" asked defense attorney Leonard Levine. "I stopped counting at 300. These women lied. They lied, they exaggerated and nobody cared—but you should care."
The case now heads to the jury, which will deliberate next week accusations that Alexander raped nine females, most of them aspiring models, at his Beverly Hills apartment.
Levine said the women who testified against Alexander "invited what happened," then made up stories so they could sue Alexander after his criminal case.
Deputy District Attorney Frances Young told jurors Alexander is a "sexual predator," and should be found guilty because he humiliated and degraded naive girls who came to Hollywood with dreams of fame.
"What we heard was four male lawyers defending their male client and what we heard was a lot of misogyny," Young said. "These girls did nothing wrong. None of these girls invited what happened to them."
"This is a very sick man," Young told the jury. "He was an abuser of women who picked a profession where he would be surrounded by teenage girls."
Beverly Hills police began investigating Alexander in March 2007 when a woman reported she had been sexually assaulted
by the designer in his apartment. Before his arrest in June 2007, Alexander was featured on the TV show, "America's Next Top Model."
He now faces 27 counts, including forcible rape and committing lewd acts on a child, stemming from assaults that allegedly happened between 2001 and 2007. The alleged victims ranged in age from 14 to 21.
If convicted of all counts, Alexander faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
