The two posts I made at the start of last year arguing that rape confounds Game have become iconic. In fact, they attract more hits that the rest of my posts put together. In simple terms, these two articles claimed that intra-male sexual competition has obviated the need for women to evolve a complex sex drive. Unequal male reproductive success has not occurred because women made mating choices; it occurred because women had no mating choices. Powerful men mated with many women because they killed off or enslaved male rivals; female ‘choice’ simply had no place in reproductive outcomes. And so the whole ‘Game’ argument – that female choice has sculpted human evolution – is discredited. In sum, what little female sex drive that evolved is both weak and dysfunctional. Unlike the male sex drive with its voracious hunger for youth, health and beauty, the female sex drive lacks any functional focus. And this explains why women prefer bums, retards and losers to successful, intelligent men: their 'unevolved' sex-drive lacks ‘evolutionary logic’.
One valid objection to this theory is that mass rapes of women by military conquerors are actually quite rare in history. They have happened, though; and the recent Balkans conflict shows they still happen. However, in this article I hope to introduce a new concept to the debate: soft rape. If we were to label direct sexual coercion ‘hard rape’, soft rape is its indirect counterpart; the use of socio-economic power to engineer situations where coercive sexual activity can occur without legal redress.
Soft Rape confounds the underlying assumptions of Game just as readily as its hard counterpart. And it explains why female reproductive urges remain weak and illogical in exactly the same way: intra-male sexual competition obviated the need for a complex, discriminatory female sexuality to have ever evolved. And so it never did: which is why females seldom use pornography, or why male prostitutes cater exclusively for a male clientele, or why many women confuse incontinence with orgasm.
The recent stellar exponent of soft rape has to be Sir Jimmy Savile. A brief look at Savile’s life suggests how males can use soft rape techniques to secure sexual access to many young women, even those of illegal age – and get away with it.
Savile was born in Leeds – an industrial city in the north of England – in 1928. Soon tiring of a coal-miner’s short, hard life, he began to manage night clubs in the late 1950s. American youth culture was spreading to Britain, post-War austerity was in decline and the way lay open for intelligent, driven men like Savile to make their mark. Savile became a famous ‘disc jockey’ in Manchester; in fact, he is credited with inventing the use of two turntables. Success followed success. By the 60s, he was a national celebrity, presenting TV shows like the execrable Top of the Pops. By the 70s he had become a national treasure - a working class hero who juggled charity work with his many media commitments. Royalty, politicians and celebrities alike sought his sage advice. Despite his lack of formal education, Savile had great native intelligence: he was a member of Mensa. Until his death last year, the man was lionized as a kind of living saint.
And then the revelations began.
'King Jimmy' had been using soft rape techniques to engineer sexual encounters with young girls for over fifty years. His charity work created a shield of sainthood around him, inhibiting media speculation about his sexuality. His connections ensured that young women would submit to him in order to advance their careers. And his wealth meant that he could even abuse his own female relatives with impunity – they and their families were financially dependent on him. His great-niece says:
'If we blabbed on Jimmy or told tales, the fame that surrounded him would've gone. And I loved to say that Jimmy Savile is my Uncle - I loved to say it, it made me proud. But for him to suddenly be destroyed over something like this, the family would have had nothing.'In sum, Savile’s status meant he could get copious quantities of sex without being 'attractive' to women. Charm or looks never entered the equation. Rather, his social and economic power made women - even his own relatives - defenceless before him. Not only that, he could enjoy their bodies without legal redress or media intrusion.
And so we see how soft rape must have operated throughout history. Together with the more forceful hard rape, soft rape could well have obviated female sexual evolution altogether. Powerful males used their position to gain mating access and their wealth ensured more of their offspring survived. Religious authority creates many opportunities for soft rape, too – a license for it, in many respects. The female predilection for magic crystals and unctuous sentiment has always given religious leaders huge scope for tangential coercion.
So the charge that hard rape has not occurred with sufficient frequency to obviate the evolution of female sexuality falls apart. Soft rape has surely been an omnipresent dynamic in human evolution, becoming ever more powerful with the rise of complex societies. Indeed, the life of Jimmy Savile suggests its ongoing influence today, in a post-feminist matriarchy. In a way, just being born with property or money is a kind of soft rape in economically-polarized societies like the United States. Again, if a male is born into a certain class or ethnic group he has certain reproductive advantages (or disadvantages) in relation to other males. For example, upper class males are far more likely to reproduce than their underclass counterparts. Together, soft and hard rape explain why men nurture a sharp, logical desire for youth and beauty; while women court thugs and misfits - and western societies spiral ever further towards chaos.
