Backlash Against Feminists Real and Imagined

In the 1970s, feminists and rape survivors spoke out about their experiences, challenging any notion that rapists and child molesters are a small group of pathological males. A backlash erupted against their claims that the United States suffered an epidemic of rape. Ignoring the facts that not all those who study sexual aggression are feminists or women, and not all feminists exclude violence against males from their studies, critics accused researchers of being man-hating females assaulting American society and encouraging sexual assault by angering men. Paglia (1992, p. 63), who criticizes feminists for not seeing "what is for men the eroticism or fun element in rape, especially the wild, infectious delirium of gang rape," writes for a public who would rather hear that sexual violence is the work of predators and not endemic to American society.
