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.
