Rape culture and entitlement culture are one in of the same. Some men assume that because they have status, money, achievement, that they meet the qualifications to have any woman they want. It has been ingrained in them for a long time, by their communities and their institutions. There's also the rush of power some feel from their positions in society because they deal in circles that routinely wield power in a casual fashion. Politics, law and all the higher institutions are prone to this. They have a culture of hierarchies that treat people like crap and they are still steeped in the traditional models that worked against women.Enigma wrote: ↑Thu Dec 14, 15:26 2017I feel like any dude coming in here saying women aren't rejected as much/never approach men should have to sit down to a one hour lecture on my romantic history first.
Both genders get rejected and it hurts both equally. Men don't have a monopoly on that.
I thought we were talking about sexual assaults? Why are we now on the topic of men's feelings?
So when men get hurt it's supposed to matter more than when women get hurt because part of the male entitlement culture is that their needs matter more, especially if they meet all the qualifications to legitimately dominate another person. Saying no to a man in power is the biggest insult to him because in his world power entitles one to no boundaries or limitations. It's why every discussion turns into one about men, when really this is supposed to be about the widespread assaults on women.
