So, do the men who claim that women are at fault for being raped if they’re intoxicated abstain from alcohol? If not, does that mean that they can be taken advantage of too?

Something tells me that they would object to this when the same logic  and reasoning is pointed towards them.

I’m going under the assumption you are honestly asking a question

So, do the men who claim that women are at fault for being raped if they’re intoxicated abstain from alcohol?

That would be men and women, and maybe.

 If not, does that mean that they can be taken advantage of too?

Yes, yes they can, but they shouldn’t be. No one should

Something tells me that they would object to this when the same logic  and reasoning is pointed towards them.

We live in a society where people think men can’t be raped. Especially by a women. We see this all the time. When a man has sex with an under age girl we look at t as it is. An adult taking advantage of a minor, but when a female  takes advantage of an underage boy. We see it as a beautiful coming of age story. Even though he will develop all the symptoms that his female counterpart has.  Most people imagine a rapist as a guy hiding behind a dumpster or a drunken frat boy taking advantage of a passed out drunk girl, but the majority of rapist are peers or intimate partners of the victim who use predatory tactics to achieve sex. With that said a rape victim can be a man or a women. In our male dominated culture, men do not want to accept their role as victims. The study of male rape has been overshadowed by research into the effects of female rape and as a consequence has been ignored to a large extent.  We need more men to accept that they can be the victims of rape. No matter what they wear or how much they had to drink. I believe when this happen victim blaming will plummet because society will no longer look at as the horny male who can’t control his urges and we will no longer see women as the helpless flower who has to keep her guard up at all times. Instead will see the rapist as a sexual deviant who has no problem using predatory tactics to get what they want from who ever they want.

My point was simply one of victim blaming, and whether a man (or woman, yes, but you’ll find that women have far greater sympathy to rape victims) who did blame victims was to be raped, would he blame himself? Most likely he would not. 

I do believe that men can be the victims of rape, and did not stipulate that they couldn’t be. My question was completely rhetorical, and I do not believe that one should rape EVER. It was simply spinning the view back on them. Pointing out that under that mindset, they can be raped whilst intoxicated and be blamed for that reason, and then going on to say that they wouldn’t agree with this mindset, just like they shouldn’t do to all other rape victims. Because, it’s  a ridiculous and evil mindset, but they would probably only see that if they became the victims of this disgusting way of thinking.

Does anyone else feel really guilty when they start talking about their own feelings and then immediately regret saying anything because you just feel so annoying and pathetic and ugh

Listen, I don’t have a problem with heterosexuals, I work with one, I’m just not sure if I’m comfortable with seeing them on t.v. where impressionable young children can see them.

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
