(en) Czech, AFED: A3: Against the culture of rape - NO means NO!

Date Tue, 29 Jun 2021 10:28:59 +0300

Something is changing and it is an almost unbelievable hope for the future. What's going on? Nothing less than that the victims of sexual violence publicly opposed the influential alpha male - and he gave up his political career. We are talking about the unmissable Dominik Ferim, who calls himself choco_afro and has been described by corporate media as the most successful Czech politician on social networks. This is where his "target group" is located - Generation Z, the children of the new millennium. ---- Feri's virtual self-presentation was a real success, which he managed to embarrass only when he met in person. When he "communicated" in real terms, specifically with women, it became a public secret that he raped, sexually harassed or at least verbally humiliated them. That, in short, he is doing what the pigs of the politicians of the older generations only gave for the better when they showed themselves to the voters.

Do you remember the TV competition of presidential candidates? The one who won in the end, and now he can tell us with impunity that we are cunts, said at the time: While we peasants have had our rights, not only in the sexual field, they have always had to fight hard for that right, and that is why we have not degenerated. "And it did not take away his credit. This is exactly what the dean of the Faculty of Law spoke about, where Feri also spoke as a sexual predator during his studies: "... it is not a matter that concerns only the law faculty. It is a thing that concerns the whole society. And it needs to be addressed. "

So let's leave aside the comment that Feri would leave politics anyway because he had other plans or because they didn't really want him in Topka. One message is important in this whole case, started thanks to the investigative work of two journalists: An electoral candidate resigned in a macho Czech cesspool when it turned out to be macho! One would not even hope to live here.

Although Feri has caused long-term trauma to many girls, we can be grateful that his example and women are slowly daring to talk about their negative experiences of sexual violence. The idea that an unknown pervert lurking at night in the bushes may be to blame for rape may give way to the harsh fact that the vast majority of sexual assaults are made by people the victim knows.

Let's hope this case gives you the courage to speak. Victims report sexual violence only in a tiny percentage of cases, for many reasons, such as the unquestionable position of the attacker, fear of revenge, the knowledge that nothing will change, insensitive attitude on the part of the pheasants, fears of humiliation in the environment and in the family... Perhaps it is finally becoming the norm that NO means NO. Perhaps, at last, sexual predators will begin to fear the breaking of silence and consequences, while they have so far enjoyed the prestige of the seladons.

But nothing will solve itself. There is a need for constant effort to challenge an experienced culture of rape, where the victim feels guilty and the sex offender victorious. The solution is not to cover up women and keep them at home, as we may know from other cultures or from the past, so as not to provoke them. If someone has a problem controlling themselves, they should seek professional help, and not solve their unmanageability by limiting others or even showing it off as something natural.

There is a need to confront religious fanatics and conservatives who want to restrict sex education, discriminate against sexual minorities and dictate to women how to treat their bodies. Patriarchy and capitalism, which are based on the right of the stronger and on prey, must be rejected. It is necessary to kick all the princes and peasants who think that the world belongs to them.
