The War on Women: It’s coming from inside the feminist movement.

Amanda Marcotte, the gutter-dweller who embraced “genital nicking” as a substitute for female genital mutilation, now suggests rape is preferable to shooting a rapist.

Ten out of ten rapists agree.

After coming across Bob Beckel’s foul remarks that trivialized date rape, Marcotte responded by lashing out … at gun rights advocates.

See, if a woman’s date tries to rape her and she shoots him, the cops might not believe her and she could end up in the pokey. We assume Amanda says things like “pokey” since her logic clearly isn’t from this decade.

“So, no.” It’s the usual demeaning, infantilizing feminist tripe: Women can’t be trusted with the decision to arm themselves. Bless their ditzy little hearts. Without Amanda to think for them, women might actually believe firearms are suitable rape deterrents.

Few ideologies are more paternalistic — and dangerous — than the anti-choice leftism that seeks to disarm women, ostensibly for their own good.

Whistles, “safe zones,” well-timed release of bodily fluids? Femme-a-gogue approved. Concealed-carry of a handgun? You’ll shoot his eye out!

Heaven forfend.

Like State Rep. Joe Salazar and his fellow Colorado Dems, Marcotte insists women are incapable of making wise choices when their safety and bodily integrity are threatened. Better raped than armed, right? Once again, feminist “empowerment” leaves women powerless.

Marcotte’s brand of progressive feminism depends and thrives on a culture of victimhood. And women aren’t just acceptable casualties — they’re necessary casualties.

Marcotte’s anti-woman Twitter rant continued … and continued and continued. If you can stomach it, check out her tweets here.

    Again, you’re mixing “date rape” with “legitimate rape”.
    When the term was first coined, it DIDN’T simply mean “a rape that occurs on a date”.
    It referred to acts of seduction, drugging, etc. As opposed to the violent, forced sex act.

    • OneThinDime

      FBI uses date rape and forcible rape.

      • AaronHarrisinAlaska

        She’s referring to the bullshit straw man they use on conservatives: “if she didn’t want to get raped she should have fought harder”

    • AaronHarrisinAlaska

      Rape is rape.

    • 1SkepticalChick

      You’ve got that backwards. occuring on a date is exactly what coined the term. Drugging etc, entered later. My Grandmothers used to call it date rape.

            1. Horribly bad miscarriage of justice.

          • Horatio Cornwallis

            1. With inevitable problems in the justice system, there is absolutely no guarantee that a woman who shoots a man in self defense of rape will be believed.

            2. She was acting in self defense from a man that was intent on attacking her. If there’s no physical evidence of rape she would have the exact same argument as a woman who shot/killed a would-be rapist.

          • V the K

            “There is absolutely no guarantee that a woman who shoots a man in self defense of rape will be believed.” – Maybe, but she won’t be raped.

            Your argument comes down to, “Women should allow themselves to be raped because if they resist, they might get arrested.” Are you from Saudi Arabia or something?

          • Red Fred

            I’ll take my chances with going to jail rather than succumbing to a rapist. For those of you who don’t know, many times the very appearance of a firearm will work as an immediate deterrent.

          • Divemedic

            In that case, the woman left the house, got her gun, and came back to fire the shot at him, which missed. Hard to claim “stand your ground” or self defense when you had already left and were safe, and then returned to shoot him.

    It sounds like Marcotte’s assuming the woman is only carrying the gun because she’s on a date. A woman who typically carries a firearm, and is trained to use it, would likely have it on her at all (legal) times, not just because she thinks her date might turn into a rapist.

    I know a woman who was out on a Sunday evening and she and her date and got carjacked. She was shot more than five times and lived; her date was killed. It might have turned out differently if either of them had been armed.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      Matter of fact, a good date might just include some quality range time!

      • 1SkepticalChick

        Oh, babay!!

  • R0nin

    So it’s better to let the rapist rape you, than to take a chance the po-po won’t believe you? (After all, you can always get a government-paid abortion afterwards.)

    Sounds like a microcosm of the Liberal world-view. They’d rather have you dependent upon the government after the fact, than to have you think and act for yourself– and if you do the later, you deserve the wrath of the government.

    Also, emphasis on guns stopping rape is again putting onus on women to prevent/stop rapes.

    I’m sorry, but how is that a bad thing? Who else on the scene is going to prevent the rape? The rapist? What’s wrong with learning how to take care of yourself? The police aren’t going to show up in the nick of time whenever anyone is in danger. Life isn’t an episode of Criminal Minds.

    My widowed mother who is well into her 70’s, God bless her, has slept with a .357 magnum under one of her pillows for the last 20 years. If she or the dog (the dog) hears a break-in in the middle of the night then she easily has the time to get the pistol out of the holster, turn off the safety, point the already loaded gun at the bedroom door, and then with the other hand, pick up the phone and call 911.

    If ANY intruder breaks into MY mom’s house in the middle of the night …. they’re gettin’ a face full of gunpowder and lead the very second they open the bedroom door and cross that threshold. And yes folks …. she does practice at the range at least once every year.

    My mother will NOT be the victim of any random home invasion …. and I cannot think of a scarier way for my mom to go out than to being raped&murdered in her own home in the dead of the night. What kind of a world has liberal values created for us anyway?

      Think about this if the guy was gonna Rape her while out on a date I dont think he would want to think about it if she said hey lets go pop off a few round at the RANGE ——- but maybe just maybe if He had any thoughts about raping her — I bet he would think twice

      A .357 is one of my favorites. I got one for my daughter for Christmas a couple of years back. She gave it a name so I could ask her if she had it with her when other people were around. I say, “Do you know where “Bradley” is?”

  • Charles Edmonds

    Just being a guy , if someone was going to try to rape me , hell yes I would shoot them. I would not think twice about it or about safe zones , whistles, pulling a pen to defend myself,give me and women a break. Just from my point of view these safty plans that they posted on line on how to stop rape is a joke. If somone who is built like me (im 6’4 and last time at the scale I was 264) wanted to hurt a women (or someone else ) the whistle, the safe zone, that body fluids or even the almight pen will not stop me. What most of the antigun people dont acknowledge is the fact that some people in this world will kill or rape for no other reason then a passing thought.

  • ceemack

    Okay, let me see if I’ve got this…a woman can’t possibly make a correct determination that she’s about to be raped, and can’t possibly figure out when it’s necessary to fire the gun and when it’s only necessary to point it…

    …but she’s perfectly capable of deciding that it’s a good idea to kill her unborn baby, and heaven help anybody who tries to tell her otherwise.

    I’ve got it…I think…

  • EAM

    She’s saying that it’s possible a woman won’t be believed. I’ve served on enough juries to know she’s right… about that. However, THAT is what needs to be changed, not a woman’s right to defend herself. Shame on you, Amanda Marcotte.

    My head..I’m questioning why I tried to read that woman’s ravings now. Clearly, someone missed the bit about rapes, when the victim isn’t drugged into being docile, being violent affairs. If would-be victim is armed, she can wait until the rapist tries taking her clothes off, or his, whichever is first, or at whatever opportunity best presents itself, and open up center mass. Marcotte also demonstrates a stunning lack of comprehension in regards to Stand Your Ground laws, particularly on your own property(home, yard, vehicle), where anyone without lawful reason to be there can be assumed to be a threat and responded to with force, including deadly force. Note: Stand Your Ground is an extension of the Castle Doctrine. The one case she cited actually made the news because of it, and I’ll wager most instances of women attempting to apply the law are vindicated in their actions. Would’ve told her directly, but the stupid burned too much.

  • kim

    Reality if you pull a gun on a rapist…
    If you shoot him, you don’t get raped
    If you get hysterical and he gets the gun, you get raped.
    How about if you don’t carry a gun, you get no choice and get raped anyways?
    As a rape survivor, that you are more worried about the rapist, or about whether a woman gets arrested as opposed to being raped, is appalling.

    So, Ms. Marcotte, Rep. Joe Salazar and the rest of the
    “take the guns away from women they are way too emotional” crowd
    think a woman who feels she is about to be assault/raped may be too stressed
    and scared to make the decision to shoot her attacker/rapist. Because she
    may be mistaken and shoot someone who is not a threat so women shouldn’t be
    allowed to carry a gun because this is an important life or death decision, and
    you know an emotional woman may make a bad decision. Yet, these same lib/progs
    say the same emotional women are perfectly capable to make the life or death
    decision to have their unborn child or kill their unborn child by having an
    abortion. I guess as long as it is something they support and approve of being
    an emotional woman is no problem or is not a factor. Yeah, they are
    pro-choice for abortion but everything else healthcare, eating, exercising,
    educating my children, what car I drive, what light bulb I use, and protecting
    myself and family by owning/carrying a gun they get to decide because I am an
    emotional woman and might make a bad or wrong decision. What a bunch of
    hypocritical totalitarians.

    The twisted “logic” of the Left is truly amazing. A woman can’t choose to carry a gun to protect herself from being raped because she is liable to become hysterical and kill an innocent person — but if she is raped and gets pregnant, she is perfectly lucid and capable of choosing whether to kill an innocent person.

    Maybe it’s me but this is starting to sound like a woman should not be in public unless she is with her brother or her father or husband. Maybe we should make woman wear a burka. Amanda Marcotte is just reinforcing all the old nasty stereotypes about women that I thought were behind us. She is too stupid to know when to protect herself, she can’t be trusted with anything larger than a pea shooter.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Not one word of hers has any basis in fact. She clearly hasn’t read even a summary of defense law. Women who shoot a man trying to rape them are about as protected under the law as can be. A guy jumps a woman who attempts to rape her: law says he has the physical means to hurt her, opportunity to do so, and she is precluded from escape. In a nutshell, he is displaying his intent to put her life is in danger. He doesn’t even have to lay hands on her. Threats, following her, refusing to leave;et.c, are all legally justifiable reasons to use a gun. If you can tell the cops why you thought life was in danger, then you are going to have a very, very strong case for self-defense. Therefore, no woman should ever hesitate to light up an attacker with her firearm of choice. . Remember, Amanda Marcotte is not going to be around to help work through the trauma of a sexual attack. She’ll be off groveling before President Dog Eater for more abortions and bigger subsides for birth control. And if she does,on the off chance, write about you, her column denouncing men and Republicans won’t make you feel better if your attacker strangled you because you didn’t resist. If any woman feels uncomfortable with guns or self-defense, there are plenty of NRA members and self-defense teachers who make it their mission to help the vulnerable learn to defend themselves. Seek them out.

  • GTFOBigGovt

    She’s actually just LIKE Beckel saying nonsense based on nothing “Odds are extremely high that a woman who shoots a would-be date rapist is going to prison”. Odds based on WHAT?

    Beckel does the same thing all the time. Throws out his uninformed opinion as fact. Or worse, with his fried brain says stuff like “The best place to go when you have the flu is the movies”. Great idea, genius.

  • leftwingthom

    Once again, you all fail to look at the situation realistically. Of course women are capable of protecting themselves, and of course they could deter a rapist with a gun. But the vast majority of rapes are committed by men these women know, and therefore happen in otherwise comfortable settings. A woman probably keeps her gun in her purse, right? That’s the safest place for it. Men are most likely to attempt rape in the privacy of her/his home after he’s made her feel comfortable. Idk about other women, but none of the women i know are wearing their purse inside when they’re at home. Therefore, they most likely won’t have their gun on them when this creep is making his move, therefore nullifying their significance. If a woman was just walking around and suddenly got attacked, which almost NEVER happens, btw, then you’d have an argument for more guns in this case.

  • Joseph Lee

    If you shoot a man who is about to rape you, you risk murder charges and going to jail. The best thing to do is let him rape you, and then visit a hospital, where they use a rape kit and collect evidence of the rape. If the guy hasn’t fled halfway to Mexico, they can totally get him. More importantly, there’s like zero history of men DENYING rape after it happened and getting off scot free.

    Also, if you blow a rape whistle, whip out a pepper spray, or use karate, the rapist will be paralyzed by fear. But if you point a gun at him, he’ll summon the courage to fight you and take the gun away from you, meaning you’re in trouble! .

      You’re also assuming the rapist is going to leave her alive to testify…as is you’re dooming her to the trauma,PTSD,and indignity.

    So, Mandy….

    We can send women to the front lines, with REAL assault rifles…but can’t trust them at home with a pistol?

    Liberal Logic … has nothing to do with Logic and definitely is not liberal (as in free).

    Liberalism is a Fundamental belief system. Based loosely on some writings that are taken literally and with an underlying emotional refutation of anything counter to that belief system.

    Sort of like Islamic Fundamentalists and their 72 virgins, only without the virgins.

    liberals are motivated by conclusions which appear in seriously dubious “research studies”. then, based on these questionable conclusions asserted to cover the entire society (despite studying less than a 1000 people), liberals get statistics which indicate a “serious” problem. the liberal THEN proposes spending billions to improve that statistic by less then 1%. Why? Most of the money flows to liberal folks who have been certified by the same federal govt giving out the money, to receive the money. it is very slick. I betcha most of the stimulus $$ went to businesses run by democratic supporters.

    Police aren’t supposed to argue anything, they are supposed to gather the facts and leave the arguments for the courts.

    Everybody knows you can’t shoot rapists. Shooting is for Christians!

    Sometimes the way Marcotte and other feminists do everything in their power to encourage the soulless sex-at-any-cost culture that has done women so much harm reminds me of Mr. T. Washington’s famous quote.

    Just got into it with Amanda a bit on Twitter. She uses the old ‘so this is what you’re really saying?’ dodge where she totally changes what it was you said to make you look like a lunatic,

    Take a look:

    Shooting a would-be rapist DOES prevent a rape. Pulling a gun on but not shooting a would-be rapist does NOT prevent rape. Amanda Marcotte – someone else unknown to me – was half right.

    The moral here is that women should arm themselves, and should use their weapon to defend themselves. Why is this concept so difficult for portsiders to understand?

    “Let’s say a woman packs heat on a date, and her date does try to rape her and she shoots him. What will the cops think?”

    Amanda, if I just stopped someone from raping me I don’t really give a flying F*ck what the cops “think.”

    I thought feminists were into women empowering themselves. I guess I was mistaken. Amanda Marcotte is a MORON!

    Only an idiot thinks shooting a rapist DOESN’T prevent rape.

  • Red Fred

    Attn: Amanda Arcotte -I absolutely assure you that shooting a rapist prevents rape,also slows breathing, sometimes completely to a stop.

    Here is to the hope she doesn’t reproduce.

    • BeeKaaay

      Leftwingwackos reproduce asexually.

      They contracept, abort, homosexualize and euthanize themselves out of existence, so leftwingwackos have to come from somewhere, and that’s why they propagandize everyone else’s children (pubic schools, colleges, TV, etc.)

  • gekkobear

    Remember people, you can’t trust a woman with a gun… they can’t handle the stress, the responsibly, or the decision of using it.

    If you disagree you’re sexist. For the new improved definition of “sexist”.

    Well that’s a pickle. Shoot or rape. As with all gun carrying citizens, the question to brandish, shoot or remain counseled always comes with a price. Many of us lawful gun owners are burdened with the consequences of our choices. The authorities seem to never be on the side of victims unless there is some political gain involved. So I would summarize that a CPL or CCW carrying woman, having been trained, is aware of the ramifications of her actions, and has the ability to make a life altering decision, one way or another. Or she can choose a more democratic liberal solution and blow her whistle while the animal is banging away at her. Maybe a few punches thrown in for good measure and some strangulation for effect. Maybe she can jodo chop the perp. Although, I have seen a few so called karate kids get stomped by street fighters a few times. So, Joe Biden’s shotgun, discharged into the night sky, and your liberal rape whistle, jodo chop defense plan is the smart move according to libtardia. And conservatives are nuts?
