Feminism; a rejected ideology...

"Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism."

What about; "Young women need to be socialized in such a way that false accusations is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism".

Mary Pipher, Clinical Psychologist and Author.
Why not teach everybody that? Either we accept that there is something inherent in human nature that causes rapists’ existence, or we act like nobody’s default state is rapist. We can’t have it both ways, and it’s time to drop the gendered bullshit. Anyone can be raped by anyone. If we are to agree that rape is the crime of violating someone’s sexual consent, then we ought to include everyone in that definition. I have never heard a rationalization about the existence of female rapists that doesn’t appeal to infantilizing women and demonizing men. I acknowledge a world with women who are sometimes stronger. I acknowledge that manipulation and coercion are also means to violate consent. I accept that being drugged could put a man in a situation where he is forced to do a large variety of things he cannot even technically consent to, being held captive.

Women are just as human as men and it means they’re just as capable too. Capable of good, and capable of unspeakable evil. Tell me how much you respect women if you can’t even see the faults in them, just as you would a man.
