Quote# 80416

First, there is no such thing as marital rape. Once consent is formally given in public ceremony, it cannot be revoked; the form in which marital consent is revoked is well-established. It is called divorce. This isn't a religious issue, although many on both sides will attempt to view it that way, it's a simple matter of when consent is revocable and the specific form that revocation must take. I invite those who believe that consent may always be granted and revoked at will to consent to join the U.S. Army, then attempt to withdraw their consent. That should serve to clarify the matter for them; one hopes they will enjoy their extended holiday in Afghanistan. The attempt to create a legal concept of "marital rape" is no less than an attempt to destroy the basic concept of marriage. If the husband or the wife has no more claim to the spouse's body than anyone else, then the marital vows are meaningless and the marriage is a charade. Once consent is withdrawn, the marriage has ended.

Consent is ALWAYS REVOCABLE, you rape-apologist fuckwit.

Fucking rape apologist.

It's shouldn't even be a case of no means no either, a definitive yes or it is rape.

4/3/2011 6:33:42 AM


You are a fucking rape apologist.

":First, there is no such thing as marital rape."

Yes. Yes there is. If the wife did not consent it is rape. Is that so fucking hard?

So marriage is all about sex on demand? That's a very interesting view. Really. Oh, and since you're of the opinion that once is enough for lifetime consent then I'm sure you won't mind random background checks and drug tests from all of your previous employers on demand for the rest of your life even after you leave? You did sign a form giving your legal consent after all.

Oh, and I'm sure stalkers the world over will rejoice when they hear that you bless their sense of ownership over one night stands that ended when they showed their freaky sides.

It's guys like you that make me wish I'd bought stock when they invented pepperspray.

And that's why "and obey" is no longer part of the marriage vows.

Vox Day is a known Catholic apologist and misogynist. He has no respect for women and doesn't believe they have equal standing as men. Any and all opinions he expresses should be flushed down the sewers as one would any other effluent waste.

I don't know how your wedding vows went, but I certainly didn't promise my husband-to-be constant access to my body, in the chapel during our wedding.

There IS already a legal concept of marital rape, there's no need to attempt to create it.

Me and hubby managed perfectly well to "claim each other's bodies" long before we married.
We married to have the legal advantages, the inheritance laws, and to have a reason for a great party (and a spot of presents).

Our relationship and marriage is both of mind AND body; we like each others company, have similar interests, similar world-views (and he really likes my summerhouse on the West Coast, which I share with my siblings).

Ah, he's now defending rape. Isn't that delightful of you?

there is no such thing as marital rape

This may be true in some states, in that one cannot be charged with rape itself. But there certainly is such a thing as laws against assault and spousal abuse, without which rape is impossible. So it's still illegal - you just get 1 to 3 instead of 8 to 15.

Just to clarify, he's an apologist for the Catholic Church but his actual religion is Southern Baptist. And he is certainly a raging misogynist. And ladies, he's single!

Wife doesn't want to give you any?

4/3/2011 7:51:25 AM


Might come as a shock to you, but times have changed and slavery has been outlawed. Pity your morals are stuck in bronzeage.

Anybody who would consider the idea of forcing themselves upon the person whom they claim to love doesn't have a marriage worth shit.

4/3/2011 8:14:22 AM


I would be ok with this if it went both ways. Like suddenly my wife decides that right now is as good a time as any to experiment with pegging and doesn't ask permission. Then it all balances out with the times I decide sex is good right now and don't care what she thinks.

4/3/2011 8:31:07 AM


Note the disgusting euphemistic language, to gloss over the brutal reality. There is nothing in the marriage ceremony that says "I, the woman, will always be available for sex in all circumstances". This issue was recognised and settled 100 years ago.

4/3/2011 8:48:59 AM


The guy thinks marriage is like joining the army, which shows massive issues and delusions concerning both marriage AND the army.

He's literally pro-rape. And proud.

4/3/2011 9:08:11 AM


What is agreed to in the marriage ceremony isn't that one partner can force the other to have sex at any time, Vox Duh.

Hello there, idiot who is too stupid to properly spell "Vox Dei" (or "Vox Populi", for that matter). You have absolutely no idea why rape is a bad thing, don't you? I guess all those testimonies from women who were raped mean nothing to you? I am ashamed to be in the same gender as you. Since you are in fact a rape apologist, your views are invalid and you do not deserve to live. After all, it's only a small difference between arguing for allowing marital rape and arguing for allowing ANY kind of rape. What meaningful difference does it make? You, Vox Day [sic], are a word that is unprintable.

No means no, being married or not has nothing to do with it.

4/3/2011 9:42:38 AM


And I'll bet this dickpimple keeps a wife-beatin' rod close to hand, too- no bigger around than his thumb though, of course, because that's biblically correct.

4/3/2011 9:51:51 AM

When did, “To always be ready to fuck my man” become part of the standard vow package? ‘Cause I otherwise don’t see how marriage means eternal consent to sex.
