Why Guys Really Hate Being Called "Creepy"


At the heart of the ‘anti-creep shaming campaign’ is a concerted effort to discourage women from relying on their instincts to protect themselves from harm. Laying aside its likely etymology, calling a dude an ‘asshole’ is a way of labeling him a jerk. Plenty of people can be jerks without being predatory. On the other hand, calling a dude ‘creepy’ labels him as a potential threat; a creep may not be imminently violent, but there’s almost always a sense that he shows consistent disregard for a woman’s physical or psychological space. This is why, as Wakeman wrote, ‘it’s a really freaking dangerous idea to twist a woman’s open, honest communication about her boundaries/expectations into ‘creep shaming’ that victimizes men.’

"I mean, honestly? Birth control is amazing. It makes my periods wonderfully lighter than my normal heavy flow, and if it keeps me childless to boot? Hell yeah. And so what if a newly conceptualized zygote doesn’t implant? Why is a not-even-a-fetus-yet-egg more important than my choices? Nothing inside my body gets to stay there without my consent. Not a penis, not a finger, not a dildo, not a fetus. The end!"

If consent to sex is necessarily consent to pregnancy, then I demand that every couple who has sex but does not conceive must immediately march down to the adoption agency and adopt a child, since clearly you signed the contract before doing the deed.


Does this sound ridiculous? Good!

Because it’s exactly what Anti-Choicers sound like when they try and make this argument.

Consent to sex =/= Consent to pregnancy. Period. End of story.
