Free Northerner and Vox Day are right, of course

16 May

Both have recent posts about the subject of marital rape, and its impossibility. (See here and here.) Vox’s post is in response to an Indian court ruling on the subject. Which ties into an episode from my past…

A couple decades ago, at university, I had a roommate from India; once we were watching the news on our common T.V., and something came up about a husband who’d been charged with raping his wife. The Indian fellow couldn’t understand our Western laws – “But she’s his wife! It can’t be rape, by definition!” At the time, I was still quite Blue Pill in my views, and I was appalled at what I thought was just a regressive, backwards, non-Western POV. Now, being Red Pill, I realize he was right, and that it is us decadent ‘progressive’ Westerners who are wrong, because of how much we’ve been infected by progressivism. Our ancestors would have agreed with that Indian guy – and this recent Indian court ruling – and Free Northerner, Vox Day, and I, in this matter.

    You are right, historically speaking, the concept of “marital rape” didn’t exist until 1970s, however, the husband who would beat his wife so that she go to bed with him, was considered guilty of cruelty, and it was grounds for divorce, and in earlier times, for legal separation. Also, “marital consent” historically didn’t cover certain acts which were considered unnnatural, and in most Western countries there existed laws against sodomy. Again, it was grounds for divorce. The funny thing is, that when you read medieval court proceedings of wives demanding legal separation from their husbands, you’ll see that they often used exaggeration and downright lies to present their husbands as total monsters, while painting themselves as innocent victims and they asked and could receive spousal support from their husbands as well. And of course, there always were neighbours and servants willing to testify on the side of the wifey:)

    And, BTW, those decrying “marital rape” were chiefly men, not women, just read English literature from the beginning of the 20th century. Galsworthy, for instance (I hope I spelled his name correctly:), or Cronin. Just like there were a lot of men who supported easy divorce. The same Galsworthy, and then Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle, to name a few. All our modern problems with feminism (and lots of other things) grew out of the twisted Victorian world view. Victorians seemed to have taken the Madonna-Whore dichotomy to unbelievable heights:)

    Nothing has changed in human nature; just the laws…
