Sexual advances remain a male responsibility leading boys to be mistrusted and rejected by women. For men, rejection and sexual identity go hand in hand. Rather than taking rejections personally, men objectify women because it hurts less to be rejected by an object. But objectification alienates women. Reinforcing men’s addiction to women’s bodies and then depriving men of their fix only makes them feel less than, and powerless against women. The result is sexual paralysis. Many men are now too afraid to advance but are still expected to initiate. At the same time, exaggerated claims of the increase of rapes and minimizing the number of false sexual assault reports magnifies women’s distrust of men. False reporting is what led to the inevitable circus that became the pages of Krakauer’s Misoula. It is because 60% of sexual assaults reports are statistically false that the Missoula justice system acted the way it did, but it’s easier to play the blame game than it is to dig for nuance.
