I am a liberal, and I find MRAs to be way less pushy and arrogant in their struggle than feminists, I found this comic on the “top” of “all time” in /r/feminisms. Is this how they feel when people bring up mens rights issues?(r/MensRights)
They did. Go here to Amazon, go to ‘Look Inside’ and search for ‘exciting’. You will find the context for the statement.
I also have this that he wrote not long after the protest:
> The context of the date rape quote is a chapter in which Dr. Warren Farrell writes that the politics of rape is hurting our ability to prevent rape and especially to prevent date rape. With two daughters himself, he opens the chapter by asking readers to, “Imagine your daughter. You know that date rape is a legitimate issue. You want your daughter to experience dating in a way that contributes to love, not hate. You also sense that if your daughter is raped by a man she is dating, her ability to trust will also be raped. So the big question is: How do we make dating the most positive experience possible for both our daughters and our sons?”
>Today (Dec 6, 2012) Dr. Farrell writes, “In 2012, the female fantasy Sweet Savage Love that I discuss in the Myth of Male Power has become even more confusing to young men with the massive popularity among women their mom’s age of the sado-masochistic Shades of Grey, one of the biggest best-sellers of all time. If women’s studies and gender studies are interested in helping the sexes communicate and unravel the mixed messages both sexes give with the goal of helping both our sons and daughters experience more love than hurt, gender studies professors would be the first to use this chapter as part of a balanced dialogue.”
Short version: he does not support rape, and the chapter is about helping both sexes understand the mixed messages both sexes send out during courtship.
