When rape becomes “freedom of speech”

A large number of pro-rape pro-child abuse pages apparently originating in Australia have recently sprung up on Facebook with titles such as

Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m going to fuck you with a rake

Rose’s (sic) are red, Violets are blue,my Rape mode is on and I’m coming for you!

roses are red violets are blue if i had a beer bottle id (sic) smash it over youRape page 1

Kicking sluts in the throat.

It i’snt (sic) actually a rape if you say “SURPRISE” first.

Missing your final exam because you were date raped the night before

Pro rape post

Calling your penis Jack the Ripper because it kills and eats prostitutes

These are just a few of the hundred or so page URLs supplied to the Facebook reporting group Report Hate Groups for reporting by members.

Now you would think that some of the far right pages which also infest Facebook like a nasty plague, and which are always clamouring that they support women’s rights and are always accusing minority-group males of being rapists and predators  would be front and centre at condemning these pro-rape pro-child abuse pages and calling for their removal.

Not so

Sex with rakes

And a far right site which is always pointing the finger at Muslims, asylum seekers and anyone they decide is a “leftie” has actually decided to inform one of the pro-rape pages that they are being reported.

the Tanty Bogans are so affronted that they decide to conduct what passes for a discussion on their page.

Please note that their page has recently changed its name so if you can be bothered looking for it you will find it as Exposing the antiboganworldpress.com or something.

Tanty Bogans support rape

And as the chief  Tanty finishes its tanty the peanut gallery chimes in with its usual ad hominem mouth-breathings. In fact Joel Rickard gets so excited at having seen a picture of a real woman that he feels the need to make the same dumb comment twice.

And when the Tanties are challenged for their hypocrisy and support of hate crimes against women

Tanty Bogan challenged

We know the Tanties hate facts and evidence, but it might be a good time to point out to them that in Australia one in three women is a victim of sexual violence –  so they, their relatives and friends either include victims or know someone who is a victim.

We can also point out that men too are victims of sexual violence and child abuse. For instance one in seven males has been subjected to child abuse.

But that doesn’t worry the Tanties. They are only concerned with their freedom of hate speech.

Something to ponder
