Lesbian Student Describes How She Was ‘Violated Physically and Emotionally’

Posted on | September 7, 2014 | 101 Comments

This story shocked me. Sure, I understood how Lesbian Chic propaganda conceals the heartache, exploitation, abuse and violence that occurs between women. Yes, I realized that the “rape culture” rhetoric and angry lectures about “consent” were cynical political posturing intended to leverage the militant anti-male/anti-heterosexual ideology of radical feminism being promulgated by Women’s Studies programs on America’s college and university campuses.

Still, even knowing all that, I was shocked by Wesleyan University student Caroline Catlin’s account at Huffington Post:

At first, we laughed about it. My friend and I sat at a small table in a crowded coffee shop on campus laughing about my unfortunate night. Another bad hook up. Another awkward college story. We laughed and I shifted my shirt to showcase the bruises across my shoulder. We shook our heads, wide eyed, and my friend said she knew the well-liked senior girl I had hooked up with the night before with was a little wild — but she didn’t know she was that wild.
After, past the point when a different friend came in and heard my story, past the point where her gentle concern made the hot shame in my stomach rise to my throat, past the point where I lay in another friend’s bed with my shoulders curled around my knees and decided whether or not I wanted to go to the health center and report it, after I first used the words “sexual assault” and realized the extent to which I had been violated, after all of that, I wondered secretly what would have happened if my story had held different pronouns.
I wondered if we would have laughed if I had been with a man the night before, instead of a woman. I wondered if, limping into the coffee shop, my friend’s response would have been awe and respect had I told her of a man who grabbed me too roughly, who ripped my shirt, who left me aching to leave and unsure of how to go.
Would I have seen the warning signs that night long before I did if I recognized the same manipulative, controlling, forceful behavior we are taught to fear in men could also be present with a relationship between two women? . . .

WHOA! Her shirt was ripped, her shoulder was bruised by a “well-liked senior girl” who was known to be “a little wild”? Either:

A. We must always believe the victim, as feminists tell us;
B. Caroline Catlin is pitching a cable network movie script here.

Personally, I believe the victim of lesbian assault:

I was violated physically and emotionally in a situation I deemed instinctively to be safe . . . No one at the party blinked an eye when I left with a woman I barely knew, no one texted to make sure the person I left with was safe, that I got home without a problem, that my night was going the way I intended. . . .
A woman assaulted me. I myself am a woman. My story is not like many of the ones being used to move forward in this movement. Yet, still, it happened. I was violated. Something went terribly wrong.

You can read the whole thing. There is no need to wonder why Caroline Catlin “deemed instinctively to be safe” a lesbian hook-up with a woman she “barely knew” — this is what radical feminism teaches implicitly every day in Women’s Studies programs: Men are the root of all evil, male sexuality is dangerous and oppressive, and lesbianism is the only escape from heteronormative patriarchy. As I remarked in February, “Is it a coincidence that this rhetoric sounds like it belongs in a book, Lesbian Pick-Up Lines for Women’s Studies Majors?”

I don’t think it is coincidental. Not in the least.

Let the reader ask these questions: If an adult married mother of two can “discover” her lesbianism by watching a cable TV series, what effect does such media messaging have on impressionable young people? What could be the combined effect of anti-male feminist teaching in schools and overt lesbian themes in popular media? If lesbian Women’s Studies professors can claim that Disney cartoons are encouraging young girls to become heterosexual, is it irrational to suppose the reverse scenario might also be possible? Make up your own mind.

Don’t misunderstand what I’m saying. This isn’t about trying to gin up paranoia or foster a climate of homophobia. This is not about a conspiracy. It’s about a consensus — a shared system of belief — that extends far beyond the Women’s Studies classroom. Rhetoric about “equality” and “progress,” constant chatter about the victimization of women and the rights of gays, reflect a widely held belief among our intellectual elite that normal sexuality oppresses women, especially within the context of “traditional family values.”

Tuition at Wesleyan University is $47,702 a year. A small price to pay for the opportunity of being “violated” by a lesbian.
