What’s with the pro-sex industry bombardment in the Guardian this week?

CiF 13MAR13

Not only did we have the ‘whenantisattack’ CiF piece last week, which was basically just a piece of free publicity for Brooke Magnanti’s vanity project-slash-sex industry smoke screen, we now have a piece written by Magnanti herself, telling people not to give to Comic Relief because they fund projects supporting victims of sex trafficking (backed by her – most likely deliberate because she can’t be that stupid – confusion of mean and modal averages), we’ve also had two pro-porn pieces written by young white women, both of which I hope to tackle at some point in the near future (the first of which was up in the central column of the Guardian front page today and yesterday, and only seems to have been pushed off this evening by the election of the new Pope!).

Meanwhile, the CiF piece by Keir Starmer QC, the director of public prosecutions and head of the Crown Prosecution Service, which tells us that false rape allegations are vanishingly rare (35 prosecutions for making false allegations of rape vs. 5,651 prosecutions for rape, over a 17 month period), has vanished from the CiF main page and the Guardian front page after roughly 12 hours.

  1. Guardian’s piece by Keir Starmer isn’t that good because Starmer continues to focus on ‘poor innocent men supposedly being subjected to false rape allegations by supposedly vindictive manipulative female demons! ‘

    This was also published in Guardian and note Starmer not once mentioned the fact thousands and thousands of female victims have their lives ruined because of mens’ continuing enactment of male pseudo sex right to female bodies.

    Starmer clearly has an agenda and that is not about looking at how the male supremacist legal system continues to put female victims on trial whilst the male defendants become the ‘victims.’ No instead he focuses on yet another male supremacist ‘red herring’ the myth that countless men are having their public reputations and lives ruined because these men are being charged with having committed rape/male sexual violence against women/girls. Ah yes rape is as rare as the unicorn!

    Guardian also has an agenda and that is endless propaganda articles proclaiming ‘porn is empowering for women;’ prostitution is just ‘female sex work,’ female sexual enslavement doesn’t exist.

    I’m now waiting for Guardian to proclaim ‘slavery is fine because it is just an individual woman’s or man’s choice to be enslaved!

    Hecuba, have you actually read that article? The article is about how rare false rape allegations to the police are, and he compares the low number of false allegations with the much higher in comparison number of rape convictions.

    Nowhere does he reinforce the lie that false rape allegations are common, or that rape is rare.

    Really, this is a very useful report to reference whenever anti-feminists/misogynists cry ‘false rape allegations’ and you are rubbishing it seemingly without reading it, what on earth do you hope to gain from that?
