A Voice for Men writer laments: "Since the advent of ‘marital rape,’ sex is no longer a loving duty, so it has become whim and weapon."

Has A Voice for Men just declared itself in favor of marital rape?

In the midst of a long and otherwise fairly tedious piece complaining about wives asking their husbands to do their fair share of the chores, Clint Carpentier offers some rather startling thoughts on marital rape laws, and how he thinks they help to make marriage a losing proposition for modern men.

In the good old days, he writes, “sex was a wifely duty she was obligated to provide as per the terms of marriage.” But “since the advent of ‘marital rape,’ sex [in marriage] is no longer a loving duty, so it has become whim and weapon … .”

Yep. Apparently “being raped by your husband” is really just a way to fulfill your “loving duty” as a wife.

So, Carpentier concludes, if wives demand that you do the chores around the house, and you can’t rape them at will, what’s the point of even having one in the first place? After all, he argues, in an age of washing machines and readymade meals chores are easy, and men can get “once per day of blasé sex” from “any street-hooker” or splurge on “mind-blowing sex once a week [from] a well trained call-girl.”

And so, he writes,

If women are demanding that their husbands do their “fair share” of the chores, then why do men need wives at all? In man’s attempt to make their wives lives easier, they have reduced the wifely duties to next to non-existent. Why, women? Why oh why would you drive those final coffin nails of obsolescence in? Aside from children, there’s no benefit left to having a wife.

Well, if the only “benefits” you can see in having a wife are someone who will do the cooking and cleaning and whom you can rape at will, then, no, there is no benefit to you in having a wife now that marital rape is illegal. And there is certianly no benefit to any woman in marrying or dating or possibly even being in the same room as you.

Where have all the good men gone? Well… where have all the good women gone?

That’s right: A man who considers marital rape to be a husband’s right honestly thinks that he’s one of the good ones.

AVFM’s Paul Elam loves to rail against the evils of traditionalism and chivalry. Interesting that marital rape is one element of traditionalism he apparently has no problem with.

RE: Argenti

Reverse, actually. These are folks legally disabled, and the company believes it’s being kind by giving them ANY productive work to do. *angry eyeroll*

If I want to work for free, I’ll fucking volunteer, okay? Otherwise, I damn well expect to be paid at minimum wage at LEAST. That’s why it’s called fucking minimum wage.

For a society that complains so much about how disabled people are leeches and need to learn to be independent, they sure ain’t much on actually giving us the methods to do so! Jesus. Aaaaand this is why I hope and pray one day me and Sneak can work our way up to being a pro writer/comic-maker/artist/pet-sitter person.

Worst part? They don’t do it to mentally handicapped people like us (do we even count as such?) but people of lower IQ who may well not even realize that they’re being fucking used. They’re intentionally capitalizing on the disability itself.

But good luck on the pro writer/comic-maker/etc, my love of IS says you can do it, but I’m totally biased (then again, I guess your fans make your career huh?)

RE: Argenti

Actually, while the article I read on did have folks with lower IQ, but the people who were really het up and pissy about it were blind and possibly also with mobility impairments. They were fully cognizant that they were being used, they just couldn’t find anything better. And boy, were they MAD.

Enh, I suppose we’ll learn. I crunched the numbers earlier this week, and we’ve made over $1200 this year in art alone, with me just flailing around in mentally ill panic and desperation. That seems to be a pretty good start, considering how unwell I was the past year. So I think we have a decent chance! It won’t be easy or fast, but since when was my life easy? (My husband, on the other hand…)

Oh, by the way, I uploaded two new IS stories today! One is Giant Robots, but the other is IS prime and Thomas-centric. Also there is a fight over Star Wars vs. Indiana Jones.

“My husband, on the other hand…”

XD

I’m almost glad they’re using people who are aware they’re being used and raising a fuss, hopefully that fuss will make them stop using people. And this is why this country sucks, that they’re using people at all shouldn’t make me remotely happy, ever.

W00t for more IS! Can you email me that link though? I’m all depressive funk and thus useless.

Why does this whole thing make me think of Lysistrata? Clearly Mr. Derpentier needs to brush up on his Greek theater…

The way to get consensual sex is to make the other person horny, is it not?

These reactionaries, they always CLAIM they want to play hardball, but as soon as someone is ready to play hardball with them that’s when they start crying and whining. See, reactionaries prefer to play hardball only if they can count on the opponent playing nice.

Thralldom is wonderful. Slavery is wonderful. Yeah right, it’s easy to say that when you assume it wouldn’t be you taking it – but it would.

Well said.

BTW, sorry about jumping on you in the T-shirt thread. It was a little mean. X_X

Did you know it’s totally legal in the USA to pay your disabled employees less a couple bucks an hour? Goodwill does it.

🙁 Did not know that.

Yes, Goodwill is horrible. Not only have I heard about that, but I’ve also heard stories about worker abuse from managers. I’ve heard of a young Goodwill employee with Down’s syndrome being forced to do excessive work by his employer.

“Anarcho-capitalist” sounds like “vegetarian carnivore” to me. It just doesn’t make sense. These ideologies are fundamentally opposed to each other, so anyone trying to mash them together needs to learn to English before they attempt political philosophy.

“Anarcho-capitalism” makes perfect sense if you subscribe to the Liberturdian ideology, according to which only the use of physical force qualifies as coercion. Therefore, no matter how oppressive they are, rackets, cartels and functional monopolies can never be authoritarian.

It’s news that MRAs are in favour of marital rape?
