The Duke Lacrosse Team and Their White Male Supremacy Ritual

The Duke Lacrosse Team and Their Supremacy Ritual

In April 2007, legal authorities announced that the Duke Lacrosse ‘boys’ were “innocent”.

According to the mainstream media, the woman who accused some Duke Lacrosse players of sexual assault was a so-called evil black woman out to get white boys. Mainstream media dragged her through mud. And, while grossly trivializing the sexist and racist unethical behavior of the Duke Lacrosse team, they focused solely on the unethical behavior of Prosecutor Nifong, which pales in comparison.


MISOGYNISTIC CULTURAL LANDSCAPE


Just to shed some light on the misogynistic mentality of the Duke Lacrosse frat boys, check out this email by one of them, namely Ryan McFayden. I guess the email was sent out after the famous, “show”. Ryan had called out for his teammates to join him once again in another male supremacy / white supremacy ritual, see below:

“To whom it may concern:
tomorrow night, after tonights show, ive decided to have some strippers over to edens 2c. all are welcome.. however there will be no nudity. i plan on killing the bitches as soon as the walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off while cumming in my duke issue spandex.. all in besides arch and tack please respond”

If it is true that Eden was going to hold Ryan’s male supremacy / white supremacy ritual at his home, then that would make him Ryan’s accomplice or henchman.

Nifong’s unethical behavior pales in comparison to the Duke Lacrosse player’s unethical behavior. These Duke Lacrosse male supremacists do something so unethical as to not only purchase female humans to sexually and racially objectify them, but to even suggest, “killing the bitches” and “cut their skin off” – this suggestion alone is a violation of human rights and dignity that pales in comparison to the unethical behavior of Prosecuting Attorney Nifong.

Male supremacy / white supremacy correlation
Just look at the master/slave financial transaction: the Duke guys purchased this woman from a wholesale cargo of female humans from a strip club (i.e., female auction block) off the plantation.

Women as the Other
Sexual and racial objectification of the OTHER, like any other hate crime, serves as a prelude to commit sexual and racial violence (anywhere from light groping to murder) toward that OTHER. As John Stoltenberg in his book, Refusing to Be a Man: Essays on Sex and Justice, states, that

“Not all sexual objectifying necessarily precedes sexual violence [that is, if you don’t think all sexual objectification, in and of itself, is not violence], and not all men are yet satiated by their sexual objectifying, but there is a perceptible sense in which every act of sexual objectification occurs on a continuum of dehumanization that promises male sexual violence at its far end. The depersonalization that begins in sexual objectification is what makes violence possible.”

One thing we do know about male supremacy / white supremacy rituals is that it is a common patriarchal tradition in today’s class society where misogynistic and racist assholes like to form into groups in order to objectify several women at once time. Why do many heterosexual males in today’s world like to either individually or in concert sexually objectify women and girls? Let me ask this another way, “Why do so many heterosexual males in today’s world organize themselves closely with hard-ons, under one roof / one room to make homoerotic sadistic attempts to prove their “manhood” by sexually objectifying the Other?” I guess my longwinded question answered itself.

Bachelor parties serve to uphold male privilege
Bachelor parties are a type of male supremacy ritual held most often by misogynistic heterosexual males as an “innocent” rite of passage into so-called manhood, a way to uphold male privilege, and a homoerotic way to male bond. Their manhood, male privilege, and bonding is achieved via the sexual objectification of woman’s commoditized bodies. This parasitic process of jacking themselves up by exploiting women paradoxically proves that these guys are anything but real men.

Why not male bond through the purchase of a blow-up doll? Why not bond by purchasing a 1930’s Dancing Samba or Dinah Coon doll to celebrate their stupid fucking whiteness rather than purchase a human? No! Firstly, that is just too 1930ish. Secondly, the life of women, especially if she is black, is so very cheap and affordable these days for even the poorest of males, why not purchase the real thing!

At many of these male supremacy rituals, males can freely enjoy going so far as prostituting the female “entertainers”, because in class society with one of it’s pillars as patriarchy, as it exists today as Capitalism, money absolves men from the crime of rape for pay. And, if you treat her like she is not a real human being in a world where women are not real human beings, she is not a real human being. You’re, therefore, legally off the hook.

Our Patriarchal Legal System
Just because our local and federal patriarchal, and Capitalistic legal system allows for the purchase of women for sexual objectification, via “adult entertainment”, the commoditization/objectification of women is still a violation of human rights and dignity.
Firstly, our legal system does not take into account the context for which a woman, black, or any other minority “consents” to being objectified for money. In our legal system, consent has become the defining factor in determining whether violation has occurred. In this way the human experience and self is reduced to will, intent or consent, as if that is all that is involved in violation. In this way, liberal legal theory does not consider the oppressive condition of class domination which invokes consent. It sees just the “consent”.

Secondly, our legal system, regarding men’s purchase of women, also believes that if there is money involved in the purchase of a woman, (where the woman pimps herself or is pimped by a strip club owner aka legitimate business man), that that absolves the strip club pimp and male purchasers from a crime.

Thirdly, our legal system also supports property rights over human rights when it comes to male property owners owning women as property.

Male supremacy should be left behind, back with the dark ages.

Edens is the name of a dorm at Duke. So Mr. Mcfadyen didn't have a "henchman" called Eden. Otherwise, very entertaining post.

The purpose of this blog is stated at the top: "This blog site is a way for the community to discuss issues pertaining to the oppression of women and girls."

Gee, Ms. Lavigne, you don't seem to have much of a community reading this, since the only replies to your posts in your whole blog are these following the Duke essay, and all of them are criticisms.

If you even bother to read it your self, can you answer a few questions?

Is is improper or immoral objectification if only women look at and enjoy depictions of naked women for sexual enjoyment?

Is it improper or immoral objectification when women enjoy male strippers such as the chippendales?

When a man or a group of men hire a woman to strip at a party for $400 per hour, who is exploiting whom?

If capitalism is irretrievable corrupting, could you cite and example from history (or the present) or describe an economic/political system which is better or you prefer?

chris1Wow, a very interesting take on the Duke Lacrosse case. Of course you are absolutely right in that male supremacy needs to be left behind in the dark ages.

Unfortunately much easier said then done, as we live in a world completely dominated by the privilege strait white male.

As far back as I can remember the strait white male has regarded and treated all other groups such as women, gays, and blacks etc as second sometimes even third and fourth class citizens.

I don’t think there is a group of people on this planet who have not been oppressed by the strait white male and yet he has never been held accountable for any of this. No wonder he believes he can treat people anyway he wants.
Just look at the rape statistics, the number of men who are actually been prosecuted are declining.

This is because as you mention we still have a very Patriarchal system in place. Laws are created by men for men. The very laws that are suppose to protect women on protect women if they are also in the bests interests of men. No wonder men believe it is their right to rape women.

I like what you said about bachelor parties serve to uphold male privilege. Some men will tell you that women also like to objectify men in the same way that men objectify women.
There is however on big difference. Often objectification of women leads them to be abused and even raped by males
How often do you hear of women raping men after watching a male stripper?

The only way this can be rectified is for more women to take up positions whereby they can create new laws and enforce them.

We need more women in government positions to create these laws that will protect women. One really great law that I strongly believe in is that when a male commits a crime against a girl or a woman, only a female judge can preside over the case with an all female jury.
And the jury mustn’t just consist of any females. They should be women who are active in the feminist movement, striving to protect women.
Women who clearly know and understand the workings of the male.
This would insure a one hundred percent conviction rape.

As for all of us non strait white males, the only way we can be considered remotely acceptable is to conform to the strait white male.

I saw an awesome bumper sticker for sale which read “Lets imprison all white, heterosexual males and then talk about equality”
Not only is this a humorous revenge fantasy i.e get the strait white male to pay for his oppression. But it also shows as long as he is running the show we can talk about equality all day long but we will never achieve anything. With all the strait white males imprisoned All the other groups will be free to be who they are and thus true equality will be reached.
I would encourage anyone who is opposed to white male supremacy to get one of these stickers and display it proudly

Hey, bitch, you need to get your ass to PAKISTAN, because obviously you have NO fucking clue what a 'patriarchal society that treats women like property' LOOKS LIKE.

Girls are a 'commodity' to be sold into marriage, traded for disputes or property settlements. Those girls are then used as slave labor, or married to any male in the family that wants her.

A woman is the property of her father or her husband. 'If she 'runs away from home after marriage;she is arrested & jailed, Upon release she is returned to her husbands family, whereupon the common 'discipline' involves cutting off her nose and ears.

HUDOOD LAWS: RAPE.VIOLATION OF PROPERTY

Islamic legal schools recommend payment of compensation in rape cases. Dealing with rape as a violation of property, or ightisab or usurpation of what belonged to another.

RAPE VICTIMS arrested.

Under Hudood if a woman accuses a man of raping her, she must produce 4 male witnesses. If she can't then SHE gets charged with ZINA (adultery or fornication) because by her accusation, she admitted having sex. ZINA is a crime that can be punishable by stoning.

Of 7,000 women in jail in Pakistan, 88% are accused of crimes under Hudood.

On the rare occasions that its accepted that the female WAS in fact raped, she may still be charged with ZINA BIL JABR, which translates to: consensual extramarital sex by force !!

Only 11% of women in Pakistan are literate. Girls who try to go to school get acid thrown in their face.

Male dominance & commodification subjects women to violence on a daily basis in Pakistan. Approximately 70 to 90% of Pakistani women are subjected to domestic violence. Typical violent acts include honor killings, rape, spousal abuse including marital rape, acid attacks, & being burned by family members (often labeled an accident).

A rape occurs in Pakistan every 2 hours & 1 in every 12,500 women are victims of rape. 5 women per day are killed and 2 women per day in the region of Punjab alone are kidnapped. Incidents of women being burned by men throwing acid, severely disfiguring, are rising. 8,000 confirmed cases in 2 cities alone.

Rape victims are forced to marry their rapist, to restore honor. If they don't agree, they may be honor killed or remain in jail indefinitely.

PUNISHMENT OF RAPE VICTIMS:
Saudi Arabia, a victim of gang rape was sentenced to 200 lashes & 4 months in jail for 'being in the company of non related males'. Bangladesh-14 year old rape victim sentenced to 100 lashes with a bamboo cane & her father ordered to pay a fine - the girl collapsed after 60 canes & died later. In 2010 a 13 year old gang rape victim in Somalia was stoned to death for adultery.

AND YOU, fucking ludicrous TWAT, spend your time complaining and condemning some college boys for HIRING a fucking stripper.

You don't give a shit about about 'sexism' in THE REAL WORLD. You're just a mouthy bitch with some fucked up agenda who hates WHITE MEN and white people in general, obviously, you are a racist.
