In which Jim Goad combines scintillating humour with the biting truth. Anyone who has had the misfortune of mixing with extreme modern ‘feminists’ will know exactly where he is coming from: “PIV- Negative. Let’s get this out of the way first: “PIV” stands for “penis in vagina.”
I was unfamiliar with the term until last week, and I usually pride myself on keeping up to snuff on the latest abbreviations, neologisms, and acronyms of the psycho-feminist academic hinterlands.
What most people—the normal ones—call “sexual intercourse” or “coitus” or simply “fucking” is derisively referred to as “PIV” by a very small and hyper-insane group of sideshow freaks in the big queefing circus tent that is modern feminism. The term “PIV” never seems to be used by anyone who actually enjoys PIV. Rather, it is framed as a threat to the public health, something nearly as destructive and pernicious as HIV. I believe that many of the PIV-hating feminists and their gelded male enablers suffer from a condition known as “HUA”—“head up ass.”
According to a blog post that went viral last week, if you have a “P” and have ever placed it inside a “V,” you are a rapist. Likewise, if you have a “V” that has ever been penetrated by a “P,” you are a rape victim. If this is news to you, I’m sorry to be the one that has to break it to you.
The blog is called “radical wind” and is subtitled “blowing through female outerspace,” and blow it does, but not in the oppressive patriarchal sense that might properly be called “DIM,” or “dick in mouth.” The unnamed writer calls herself “witchwind,” and whether the wind is radical or witchy, I am certain I do not wish to stand downwind of it.
The controversial post is titled “PIV is always rape, ok?” and contains the following bloody chunks of mental menses:
Just to recall a basic fact: Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple…intercourse is NEVER sex for women.…PIV is a man mounting on a woman to thrust a large member of himself into her most intimate parts, often forcing her to be entirely naked, banging himself against her with the whole weight of his body and hips, shaking her like he would stuff a corpse, then using her insides as a receptacle for his penile dejection…The fact intercourse causes so many infections and tears and warts attests to the unnaturalness of intercourse, that it’s not meant to be. The vagina’s primary function isn’t to be penetrated by a penis but to eject a baby for birth….The fact we may not immediately feel raped doesn’t mean it’s not rape, objectively speaking.
Objectively speaking, you’re fucking nuts, lady.
I’m not sure which “wave” of feminism we’re currently on, but such sentiments recall those of whichever wave beached the hideous grey whale known as Andrea Dworkin decades ago. I read her book Intercourse back in the early 1990s and as unpleasant as it was, I imagine it’s far more pleasurable than intercourse with Andrea Dworkin could ever possibly be. Although Dworkin is often misquoted as saying “All intercourse is rape,” her formidable bulk skirts very closely to that sentiment in lines such as “Intercourse is the pure, sterile, formal expression of men’s contempt for women” and “intercourse remains a means or the means of physiologically making a woman inferior.”
The quote “All intercourse is rape” is also frequently misattributed to Dworkin’s sister-in-arms (and hairy armpits) Catharine MacKinnon, who also came quite close with legally dangerous (for men, at least) blanket statements such as “Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated.”
These are the same sort of reality-inverters who insist that rape has nothing to do with sex, that it’s purely an act of power. This doesn’t consider the possibility that in the course of human events, sex and procreation and power are intertwined rather than discrete entities. It also fails to explain the surfeit of literal penises, vaginas, and occasional makeshift vaginas that always seem to be intimately involved with acts of rape. As usual, the marching morons of social justice have it all backwards. Obviously not all—nor anywhere remotely near most—acts of sexual intercourse constitute rape, but rape always involves a sexual element. Sex is not always about rape, but rape is always about sex.
But for true believers in the most demented doctrines of phallophobic radical misandry, patriarchal trifles such as logic, biology, and evolution must be discarded in the greater service of social justice.
Thus the deluded utopian dreamers soldier on in their achingly earnest and unintentionally hilarious blogs, pinning all human woes on the “unnatural” act of a man placing his penis inside a woman’s vagina, no matter how much she enjoys it. Everything is rape to them because, well, they wouldn’t have it any other way.
In a review of Dworkin’s Intercourse, one PIV-o-phobe denies that sexual intercourse constitutes sex and instead focuses on risks such as obstetric fistula, preeclampsia, STD infections, and even death by blood clot. Sounds like a fun gal.
On a post titled “Why I’m Anti-PIV,” a self-described male virgin insists that placing one’s penis inside a vagina is a part of the male privilege that he seeks to obliterate, even though he’s obviously never enjoyed it in the first place.
Another self-gelded male white knight who calls himself “Francois Tremblay” sounds quite infantile in his descriptions of why the other “side” of the argument—you know, the low-information haters who say that sexual intercourse is natural and healthy—is infantile:
I just have little to say about a debate where the other side’s arguments are basically sophisticated versions of “me feel good when stick pee-pee in pussy, me big dick, me make baby, baby good” and “me feel good when pee-pee is in pussy, me ‘modern woman’,” because this is basically what the PIV discussions reduce themselves to.
A post titled “Why Do We Keep Having PIV??” on the Facebook page for Radical Feminists denies that vaginas are meant to have penises inside them:
PIV (penis in vagina) intercourse is considered to be the definition of “normal” sex by doctors, psychologists, TV, and most men. But should putting the penis in the vagina be considered the only way to have sex, or even a normal way?…The vagina is a hole, it’s meant to be penetrated. Nostrils and ears are holes. Should they be penetrated as well?…Some holes on the body are not meant to be filled with objects.
True, but the hole between your ears should at least be filled with a brain.
The sort of gullibility that would lead someone to believe that all intercourse is rape is essentially incurable. These people beg to be mocked, but they should also be watched closely lest their daffy delusions start creeping into the legal and educational systems. I’d tell them all to get fucked, but they’d probably choose to feel raped instead, so I respectfully choose to deny them the pleasure. (http://takimag.com/article/piv_negative_jim_goad#axzz2pZ7KxR19)
