So, Are All Men Naturally Rapists in Waiting, Or Not?

Exhibit 1:

Social Club at Harvard Rejects Calls to Admit Women, Citing Risk of Sexual Misconduct – The New York Times

A male-only club at Harvard is being pressured to admit female members.  They don’t want to do this.  One of the justifications they give for keeping the club gender-exclusive is that it might lead to increased sexual assaults.  The left strongly rejects this sentiment, characterizes it as victim-blaming, and states that separating the genders is “at odds with the aspirations of the 21st-century society.”

 

Exhibit 2:

Here’s Why Women Everywhere Will Delete Uber On April 19 – Dose – Stories Worth Sharing

A former Uber driver is launching a competing service – it’s just like Uber, only it caters to women only.  It will only employ female drivers and will only accept female customers.  The justification provided is that it enhances the safety and privacy of women and decreases the chances they will be sexually assaulted.  Their lawyer is quoted as saying “we are confident that our hiring of women drivers constitutes a bona fide occupational qualification, where doing so is necessary to uphold the privacy, safety and security of our drivers and riders.”  The left is applauding this service for providing much-needed relief from the obvious dangers of co-ed taxi cabs.

So which is it, people?  Is the mixing of genders inherently dangerous, or isn’t it?  It’s almost as if there’s an obvious double standard in play, such that women should be allowed to have their own gender-exclusive clubs, businesses, and services, but men should not.  That excluding women from a male only gathering is sexist and wrong, but excluding men from a female only gathering is progressive and in the best interests of public safety.  But no, that couldn’t possibly be the case – after all, the only thing these people want is gender equality, right?
