Explaining succinctly the reason why most people consider her books and ideas to be not even worth criticizing, conservative Ann Coulter revealed on ‘The Lars Larson Show’ that more often than not, girls who report cases of rape are just trying to get attention. Citing the incident of the botched story of University of Virginia rape by Rolling Stone magazine, Coulter also declared that “there is no campus rape problem”.
She further revealed her tenuous grasp on the subject by insisting that acquaintance rape and date rape were myths created by women and a rape isn’t legitimate until the victim gets hit with a brick on the head. She insisted that people are aware about what rape actually is.
She mentioned how girls like those in the University of Virginia case and Lena Dunham were simply trying to get attention. Lady Gaga’s name also came up in the discussion when Coulter expressed disbelief at the fact that Gaga couldn’t admit that she had been raped even to herself. According to Coulter, it isn’t a major crime when people can’t admit the crime to themselves.
As the interview continued, 53 year old Coulter mentioned that it was liberals who were responsible for overplaying campus rape cases. Bringing her own wide experience with the legality and morality of rape into the picture, she also said that the biggest cause of this overplaying of campus rape rested with liberal men such as “Clintons and Kennedys”. It was also mentioned in the interview by Coulter that no one she knew had ever been raped.
