A new “teach men not to rape” campaign is underway, this time in Mexico, I’ve covered the prevalence of these signs before, as well as the spurious claims of a “femicide” epidemic occurring in Mexico where, if anything, the incredible violence happening in many cartel infested areas are much more likely to target men than anyone else.
The current feminist narrative is as follows from an article titled These images say a lot about the state of violence against women in Mexico
For these reasons and many others, a group of women in Mexico organized a state-wide day of action against sexual violence.
Nos Queremos Vivas, “we want to stay alive,” set off a march through the State of Mexico on April 24. Several women’s rights groups signed on to the campaign, many via images shared on social media with the hashtag #24A or #NosQueremosVivas.
The graphics depict street harassment and mourn murdered women — Al Jazeera reported last year that the daily rate is six — as well as ask women to come forward if they’re attacked. Most of all, they reveal the state of women’s lives in the state, which includes the sprawling Mexico City.
In this one, the first man lets out a wolf whistle. The second says, “You look delicious.” The third, “I’d tear you in half.” Then the last man says, “Feminazis will raise allegations over anything.”
Ok then, and the first of the graphics…
A group of brown skinned men harassing white women with claims that they would “break her in half” (rompo en dos), whistling (juit juiu) while engaged in the use of a clearly phallic jackhammer, and of particular note, a feminist carrying a sign with the words “No harrasment” (No acoso), and a man dismissively looking up from his phone to say “these feminazis make false claims over everything”, (Estas Feminazis alegan por todo).
An assortment of tombstones labeled not with the names of the women who were killed, but instead with excuses such as “She had to have been up to something”, or “what was she doing there at that time of night?” etc.
The goal here folks is not to help female victims of violence in Mexico, it is to demonize men, period point blank. The similarity to the signs we have seen western women display at their slutwalks is downright eerie, and let’s be honest, who do you think the mexican cartels are killing more? Women, more than men? How many women are forced due to poverty to sell drugs for the cartels, vs the amount of women that seek to simply give sexual access to these men so that they don’t have to sell drugs themselves?
I’m sure there will undoubtedly be violence carried out against women in a corrupt third world state in the midst of a full on drug fueled war, but women will always be one step removed from the violence. The brunt of the violence will always be directed at the men first, and then women come next, and children come last. Your average Mexican drug war enforcer is still going to be a man, and thus he will still be affected by his gynocentric instincts on some level, he will reserve his most violent acts for his male rivals.
