Feminists, social justice warriors and various political alignments are frequently, actively encouraging more empathy towards those victims of rape like myself. This is something I particularly appreciate under the circumstances however there is a hypocrisy which has arisen with that. In this new day and era of multiculturalism and diversity we seem to be losing our way.
Society had been heading in a place where women's rights were made equal to those of men and we seem to have been progressing to a greater opportunity of fairness and equality within society as a whole. This, for the greater number of citizens was something we embraced. But it must be recognised that equality cannot be an absolute. It is recognised that most sexual assault victims are female. With that in mind and society's desire for equal women's rights, we must approach some difficult subjects.
Over the last few decades here in the UK, there has been systematic grooming of young girls predominantly white, for sexual exploitation by Pakistani Muslim men. MPs often raise this fact but are forced to backtrack due to fear of how it will affect Muslims within our society. By backtracking on these facts that enrages not only the victims or their families but also people who have not been directly affected but fear that they could in the future. This is obviously understandable, and anybody would feel the same threat, and want to have an open and honest discussion about that threat. It is not a racist to discuss a very real and very violent threat to people of a certain race, even if that race is a majority race.
This has been noticeable across Europe also with the migrant rape crisis which I am a victim of. And in many progressive European countries, police avoid taking down the race of perpetrators and the victims; frequently female feel guilty in their part as a rape victim. This is very concerning because it inevitably means that people are now starting to speak forgivingly and empathetically towards rapists, based purely on the fact that they have different coloured skin. After years and years of educating the European population on the crime of sexual assault and rape all in the name of equality and action against crimes against women, by providing empathy towards rapists we have now regressed into a society which is fundamentally against women's rights. In fact it appears social justice and feminists are initiating the patriarchy.
As a trauma victim myself as with any trauma victim, it is important we be allowed to feel angry about what trauma has taken place on us and to be able to express that anger without fear of being arrested for a hate crime or offending another person. Too many people get offended when I describe the man who raped me. The man who raped me was an Asian (Indian or Pakistani) male who was a migrant to this country. He was not a British citizen; his English was poor, and his accent was not an English accent. Were police offended when I described the rapist to them? If I had described him simply as a male would that have been more appropriate? With the rapist still being at the large; should he rape again will the next victim describe him simply as male, or provide a description? Or will the victim describe his skin colour and that he was not a British citizen? With my rapist at large, I feel it is my duty to describe him. If only to let others know there is a rapist out there and this is what he looks like.
So why are there people who are offended by my description of the rapist? In fact, these people are so offended by my description that they frequently fail to recognise what harm a rapist can cause to a victim. Immediately these people pursue me as a Nazi or a racist or a xenophobe based on my description of this rapist. They are not upset by the harm that this rapist has caused and that he has every opportunity to continue to cause again. They are simply concerned that I haven't approached this in a politically correct manner which doesn't cause them offence.
This inevitably means that a rape victim like myself who is white, and has been raped by a minority race is offensive just by means of describing the person who raped her. Additionally, this means that the victim has to carry with her excessive guilt, stress and pressure. With this excess emotional baggage forced upon her for the fear that she may offend, or she has offended, it obviously prevents any kind of significant recovery to that trauma. This inevitably means that our laws which are supposed to prevent discrimination prevent the effective help and understanding and empathy towards such victims in their recovery.
By preventing effective recovery in the sense that a victim of a politically incorrect crime should be silenced our governments are acting negligently. Our governments and authorities have a duty of care to their citizens. Already we have seen our authorities turn a blind eye to crimes which do not fit the narrative of political correctness. The reason for this is presumably to not create tension between the different races within our diverse and multicultural society. But by turning a blind eye and by silencing victims and by preventing open discussion this has had the opposite effect.
People have lost faith in the ideologies of social justice, equality and are far keener to take a utilitarian position on society. And consider this; reverse psychology is a technique involving the advocacy of a belief or behaviour that is opposite to the one desired. The expectation is that this approach will encourage the subject of the persuasion to do what is desired. It is very hard to believe that those in power, those in government and those leading our authorities lack any intellect or common sense in recognising that to act in these ignorant and deceitful ways would create a calm, friendly and relaxed society.
These ignorant and deceitful behaviours were ordered from the top, and understandably have shattered societies trust within each other. Not only that but the powers that be repeatedly invite more risks within our society. This will inevitably cause great hostility, further segregation and civil unrest with in our nations. Moreover, it is there to question whether these actions have been deliberate. Of course, many people do question if this has been a deliberate action and those people are right to question it. But what would be the benefits of such a society like the one described? Perhaps more governmental control? Perhaps more contracts for more corporations in buying and selling security? Perhaps more news for the media to sell? Who knows, but the fact of the matter is those who question whether this is being staged are right to do so without being labelled a conspiracy theorist. To lack such intelligence and common sense in such a high position of power is absolutely intolerable and reckless.
