In an open letter to UC President Susan Herbst, self-described feminist student Carolyn Luby wrote that the redesigned team logo will intimidate women and empower rape culture.
Not realizing that she was being over-the-top ridiculous, and claiming that she was threatened with rape, she went to he campus police and was told by a UConn police officer to keep a low profile and wear a hat.
We get an insight into what Luby views as rape by this comment:
Luby, who openly shared her experience as a survivor of rape and sexual assault at Take Back The Night, an event organized to discuss sexual violence, said the abuse went beyond the Internet.
My ex-boyfriend, who I literally have not heard from in years, who used to abuse me and rape me on campus, texted me and said, I see you made it big on Barstool, she said.
She had a boyfriend who used to rape her on campus? She actually tells us that her "boyfriend used to abuse and rape me." "Used to" means that it happened more than once; it was a habit. "I used to smoke but don't any more" makes sense, but "I used to get raped by my boyfriend but I gave it up" doesn't. People do not habitually get raped unless they are imprisoned and the last time I checked UConn was not imprisoning its female students so that their boyfriends could have their way with them. She made it sound like it was a routine. He: "Friday night ... rape and abuse?" She: "OK."
She seems to have been influenced by Andrea Dworkin whose life as a gay feminist, prostitute and abused spouse may have contributed to her belief " ... that all heterosexual sex in our patriarchal society is coercive and degrading to women, and sexual penetration may by its very nature doom women to inferiority and submission ..." If we use that definition of sex and assume without proof that we live in a patriarchal society, then Luby may actually have been raped regularly by her boyfriend. Of course that means that everyone who participates in heterosexual sex acts are also involved in rape, which then erases meaning of the word as we have understood it.
Sort of like the word "marriage."
How did we turn into such a nation of wimps?
I can virtually guarantee that Luby will rarely be “raped” again. Courage like that doesn’t exist in the male population.
Anyone that talks about a “rape culture” is delusional.
It’s a friggin Huskie, get over it.
I hope the taxpayers aren’t paying to send this ditzy bimbo to college. What a waste of money.
Sounds like a collegiate team.
How do we know the Husky logo isn’t that of a female?
‘Of course that means that everyone who participates in heterosexual sex acts are also involved in rape, which then erases meaning of the word as we have understood it.
Sort of like the word “marriage.”’
That’s exactly the Marxist, utopian leftists’ objective.
Rape? Of your leg, maybe.
Every time I read a feminist screed crying "rape" like this, all it ever seems to do is trivialize actual rape.
You are right, we are a nation of wimps..
Unlike this chick, real feminists @ UConn win national championships
That was a prostitute? Who would pay to have sex with that woman??
Carolyn, please STFU, you have absolutely nothing to say that is worth listening to.
"Under patriarchy, every woman's son is her potential betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman."
All sex is “rape” with these people. I read another message board recently, where someone posted that Fonzie (yes, “Happy Days” Fonzie) raped women on the show due to his grabbing a couple of women in scenes and planting a kiss on them. So yes, according to this sick bunch, now Fonzie was a rapist.
Andrea Dworkin, who explored the subordination of women, believed that marriage laws “mandated intercourse.” She also targeted pornography.
Encouraged by her socially conscious father, Ms. Dworkin embraced dissent from an early age. She refused to sing Christmas carols in elementary school and by sixth grade decided she wanted to change restrictive abortion laws. She admired books by the Bronte sisters as well as Che Guevara.
As a college freshman, she was arrested at the United Nations for protesting the Vietnam War and taken to a women’s detention center. A humiliating body cavity search by male doctors followed. Her denunciations of her treatment helped shut down the facility.
Ms. Dworkin spent her career exploring what she considered the subordination of women, which she saw everywhere from marriage to pornography to conservative politics.
Using terms such as “gynocide” to describe a cultural holocaust against women, she was adored by some who found in her writings and lectures a refreshing rebelliousness, and decried by others, including novelist Anne Tyler, who found her tendency toward sweeping statements ludicrous.
Beginning with her book “Woman Hating” (1974), written when she was 27, Ms. Dworkin found her full, strident voice. Embracing a polemical style that sometimes overshadowed the content of her writing, she declared the book’s objective was “to destroy patriarchal power at its source, the family, [and] in its most hideous form, the national state.”
