“How Can a Woman Rape a Man?” Is Bill Maher an Idiot?

By OckyDub | Posted Feb 23 2017 | 5 Comments  

realtimeIronically, I just completed a podcast about Milo Yiannopoulos’ nose-dive over his comments concerning pedophilia. This all happened shortly after comedian and political commentator Bill Maher featured Milo on his show (HBO’s Real Time) and basically began to take credit for Milo’s public demise by “exposing” him (Milo) to a broader audience…sure, ok.

In my latest podcast I brought up what I felt were double standards and hypocrisies surrounding the public’s reaction to the situation; pointing out how when older women rape or molest young boys or young male teenagers, there is minimal or non-existent public outrage or wide spread negative reactions.

Now a video has resurfaced of Bill Maher on his old ABC show ‘Politically Incorrect’ from 1998 where he discusses the case of Mary Kay Latourneau, a 30 + year old school teacher who raped / molested a 12 year old boy and became impregnated by him.

Bill’s take on the situation…

It’s unorthodox… they’re (the 30 yr old teacher and 12 yr old student) having a family and they’re (the local justice system) keeping the mother in jail because she won’t conform to what society feels is the perfect American family.

Really Bill?

When guests, Activist Celeste Greig and Musician Henry Rollins rightfully point out that this is “sickening” and its rape. Bill Maher’s response;

Rape…come on. How can a woman rape a man?

First, this wasn’t a man but a 12 year old boy. Second even if it was an adult man, the answer should still be obvious to any logical thinking human being or has society been – and continues to be – brain washed into thinking that even at 12 years of age, males / boys can’t be victims to fragile powerless women?

If you think Maher has changed his tune in the years since, NOPE. He goes into even further detail defending Letourneau in 2007 Playboy interview.

I’m the only guy I’ve ever heard who defends Mary Kay Letourneau,

Are you saying teachers should be allowed to have sex with their 13-year-old students, as she did, and not go to jail?” asked the reporter (even Playboy could be shocked).

Maher said he believed in a “double standard… If a 28-year-old male teacher is screwing a 13-year-old girl, that’s a crime.

But with Debra Lafave (another teacher who had sex with a student) screwing her 14-year-old boy student, the crime is that we didn’t get it on videotape. Was he being taken advantage of? I wish I had been taken advantage of like that. What a memory she gave him!

In 2013, a study published in the JAMA Pediatrics claimed that when “sexual violence” is defined similarly to how the famous campus study framed it—i.e., forced kissing and the like—an astounding 52% of males and 48% of females over age 18 had committed sexual violence at least once in their lives.

A 2008-2009 CDC report revealed that in American juvenile facilities, more than 95% of staff members who molested incarcerated minors were females.

Information, statistics and articles concerning Female on male rape and Female on male child molestation / incest is out there for those who give a damn to look for it.

In the meantime, listen to Bill Maher debate his panel and defend a female rapist of a 12 year old boy in the show below. The section begins at the 7:10 mark.

    I just read this op-ed about Maher today that has me rethinking my support for him.

    Bill Maher isn’t just politically incorrect—he’s politically irrelevant

    2016/2017 Bill Maher has been hit or miss with me….

    Yes. It is possible for a man to be raped by a woman. The cave man mentality in our society will not make that seem possible.

    For instance, I can walk out a building and get hit upside the head with a baseball bat blindsidedly, get dragged and tied up by female with no way of escape or defense. Her taking sexual advantage of me would clearly be rape. However, as a man from the vantage point of how a man is designed to be, that's considered a good time. It's crazy!

    I stop really following Maher a few years ago, he has become part of this growing hyperbole culture that needs to be extreme in order to get rating, views, and clicks.

    I starting feeling that way about Sam Harris a few years ago, he was one of my favorite nonbelievers to read and listen to and then he went off the deep end with his hyperbolic attacks on Muslims specifically.

    It is all part of the dog eat dog world. Everyone is trying to grab an ever shrinking pool of viewers, readers, and listeners. Now they need to be extreme or controversial to stand out in a crowded room.

    I never thought that much of Maher or his lame jokes. I was totally done with him after he made some lame joke a couple of years ago about Blacks and Cadillacs to Ta'nehisi Coates. Coates just stared blankly at him like the old, shriveled overrated prune he is.

    Maher is really just a closet Zionist, through his mother, no matter how much he tries to dress up his Muslim hatred as maverick secular enlightenment. As for Harris, to me he was always just for the white Birkenstock and wine cooler crowd, those who considered Christopher Hitchens's work to be unpalatable hard liquor. As I've mentioned on CA before, black theology professor and atheist Anthony Pinn has more depth and insight that Dawkins and all the other white "brights."

    Regardless, Damon Young pretty much summed up everything black folk need to know about Maher on the VSB site (America’s Love Affair With Immoral And Mediocre-Ass White Men Will Be Its Downfall | VSB)

    As for Milo, I hope Leslie Jones is enjoying this moment the way Wendy Testaburger did when she beat the fucking shit out of Eric Cartman on South Park….

    He's always been too cynical for me.It's like he's committed to brand of calling everything ridiculous.Sometimes he makes sense,but a lot of times I just find him tiresome.
