Dr Christian Jessen: Spreading Rape Myths
Today, Dr. Christian Jessen tweeted about a false accusation of rape. Many women responded to his tweet to point out how problematic his statement was. Jessen responded by ignoring criticisms and retweeting anyone who agreed with him.
Jessen was using his public platform of twitter to spread rape myths. Instead of engaging with women [and some men] who were pointing out the problems with his tweets, he took to insults:
Dr Christian Jessen @DoctorChristian 7m
become clear that many of most aggressive feminists here have become so blinded by rage they no longer see any other points that their own.
According to Jessen any woman who disagrees with him is an "aggressive feminist". Well, no wonder consider the level of ignorance Jessen displays. Instead of thinking about what he wrote and considering if whether or not what he wrote was offensive, Jessen went straight to abusive whining.
This was just the same old victim-blaming twaddle repeated without thought by a man with no empathy.
The tweets are replicated here.
