Rape Culture: ‘Teach Her a Lesson’

Feminists have often lectured us in recent years about the plague of “rape culture” on elite university campuses, where “male privilege” is blamed for sexual violence against women alleged perpetrated by wealthy fraternity boys. We therefore cannot expect feminists to notice this crime:

Florida police are searching for a pair of men accused of kidnapping and raping a woman to “teach her a lesson” about dating black men, officials said.
Justin Akken Fedrick, 27, and Keon Dellshai Gordon, 26 are wanted for sexually battering a woman at a Clermont home on June 22, according to a press release from the Clermont Police Department. A third suspect, 32-year-old Rodney Cooper, has already been arrested for his involvement in the case.
The victim told authorities she was spending time with friends when Cooper pushed her inside a bedroom and then guarded the door while Fedrick and Gordon allegedly attacked her, according to a police report cited by the Orlando Sentinel.
The suspects allegedly told her: “We’re going to teach you a lesson about dating a black man, and white [women] dont mean [expletive] in this town.”
Fedrick and Gordon then allegedly warned her against going to authorities, promising they’d make things “ten times worse next time” if she did, according to the report.
The victim chose to make a run for it and texted her boyfriend for help around 3 a.m, telling him she was “bleeding and limping somewhere in the neighborhood.” He called authorities, who found the woman wandering along Disston Avenue.
Police arrested and charged Cooper with kidnapping the following day. He was being held at the Lake County Jail on a $50,000 bond, the Sentinel reported.
Authorities have also issued warrants for Fedrick and Gordon, who they suspect are still in the Central Florida area, according to the press release. Police warned both suspects “should be considered armed and dangerous and have a history of violence.”

Maybe you could contact some prominent feminists on Twitter — Amanda Marcotte, Jessica Valenti, Jaclyn Friedman and Alexander Brodsky, for example — and ask them when they’ll write about this case.

Alas, “Haven Monahan” could not be reached for comment.
