"It’s like presenting a dog with a sirloin steak and expecting him not to eat it."

You’ve probably heard some twit try and use an analogy like that to try and ‘excuse’ rape or creepy behavior toward women at some point.


I presented my two dogs with an actual sirloin steak, then told them no.

Woofles didn’t even approach it when I set it down, as I hadn’t told him it was okay to do so.
Quinn approached it, completely ready to take it from the plate (as her manners are not yet as good as Woofles’ manners), was told no, and immediately backed off.

When Woofles heard the no, he turned away as well because he knew that steak was not for him to eat.

Notice how they didn’t ‘argue’, didn’t take it anyway, didn’t get aggressive, didn’t beg, or didn’t try to somehow persuade me that they should be able to have it.

They were told no, they backed off.

Dogs can understand the concept of “no”.

Dogs are capable of learning the concept of “no”.

Dogs are capable of respecting the concept of “no”.

People who rape should really not be compared to dogs, as dogs (as you can see) can easily understand the idea of, “No.”

So, essentially, if you use that analogy to excuse rape, you’re saying you have less self control and fewer basic social manners than my two dogs.

That also probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash.
