Revenge Porn Crimes And The Necessity of Men ('We guard you while you sleep')
This just happened in California:

"Revenge Porn" Defendant Sentenced to 18 Years

Quote:In an unprecedented criminal case, Kevin Bollaert was found guilty of posting sexually explicit photos of women online to extort them

A San Diego man convicted of identity theft and extortion after posting more than 10,000 sexually explicit photos of women to his so-called "revenge porn" website was sentenced on Friday to 18 years behind bars.

While the length of the sentence is debatable, the main thing that struck me is the mainstream commentary surrounding these type of cases.

While many will point out that this case is evidence of a pervasive "rape culture," I think it shows how rape culture doesn't exist, and why men as a group are the ones protecting women from individual males who would harm them.

Men:
  1. Passed legislation making what he did illegal.
  2. Investigated and arrested him.
  3. Judged him.
  4. Will guard society from him in prison.

This "patriarchal" system is codified in law. A lot of men built a culture up preventing women (and men) from this type of violence.

Yes, the men who built the website and those who submitted to it were committing violations. However, it was the supposed patriarchal system that stopped it, the culture and law that said that this is unacceptable and actually stopped it -- not just tweeted about how horrible it is.

It is nothing new to folks here, but as this case will probably get a lot of media attention and shares on social media. So just remember, that it is another example of how some individuals are violent and criminal, and those criminals are men. However, it is men who are protecting women (and other men) from those intent on doing harm.

It is an argument against the idea that our society embraces a culture that allows sexual violence toward women, not in favor of the existence of a "rape culture."

Feminists have just outsourced the 'functions of the patriarchy' to the state and big corporations. Like what you mentioned above, i.e. protecting women, child support. They may "critique" masculine men but they are always quick to call for their help when something goes wrong. Whether it is something serious such as rape or something childish and stupid like calling the police for a nasty tweet.

The stories make it all about the "revenge porn" angle, but he was also charged with multiple identity theft counts and was basically extorting money from people.
