US-Unis: Keinen Sex gewähren zählt auch als "sexuelle Gewalt"

Die konservative Studentenzeitung "The College Fix" berichtet:

Examples of abuse listed on the University of Michigan’s domestic violence awareness website say "sexual violence" includes "withholding sex and affection" and "discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex" – definitions that have come under fire by some men’s rights activists.

The terms, found under the heading "definitions," also suggest verbal or psychological abuse include: "insulting the partner; ignoring the partner’s feelings; withholding approval as a form of punishment; yelling at the partner; labeling the partner with terms like crazy [and] stupid."

Janet Bloomfield, social media director for "A Voice For Men," an activist group that counters feminist extremism and misandry, took aim at these University of Michigan examples, first on her Twitter account over the summer and more recently in an email to The College Fix.

"These kinds of policies contribute to an increasing level of sexual misconduct hysteria and essentially create a chilling climate for young men," Bloomfield said. "When things like ‘withholding sex’ and ‘ignoring a partner’s feelings’ are framed as a pattern of behavior that is abusive, they are not only pathologizing normal relationship behaviors, but they are opening the door for vindictive or spurned partners to make allegations that can have profound effects for the accused."
