I've been looking through a study called "Rape Culture and Queer Performativity at Urban Dog Parks" by Helen Wilson
Pretty interesting stuff seeing the parallels between their rape culture and our own, I posted a few quotes below with the link
Navigating ‘Dog Rape Culture’Averaging across my data, in my observational vicinity there was approximately one dog rape/humping incident every 60 min (1004 documented dog rapes/ humping incidents) and one dog fight every 71 min (847 documented dog fights). (Here, I use Palmer’s (1989) criteria for rape, noting my anthropomorphic limi- tations in assessing when a humping incident constitutes rape in dogs. NB: the phrase ‘dog rape/humping incident’ documents only those incidents in which the activity appeared unwanted from my perspective – the humped dog having given no encouragement and apparently not enjoying the activity.) These numbers increased or decreased based upon the number of male dogs present at any given time, rising at times to one such incident or the other every three to five minutes during peak male-density periods. In general, more dog rapes/humping incidents occurred when more male dogs were present, and, somewhat surprisingly, 100% of dog rapes/humping incidents were perpetrated by male dogs.""
"The response to dog rapes/humping incidents, however, was markedly differentthan to dog fights. The data suggest that the deciding variable for whether or not a human would interfere in a dog’s rape/humping incident was the dog’s gender. When a male dog was raping/humping another male dog, humans attempted to intervene 97% of the time. When a male dog was raping/humping a female dog, humans only attempted to intervene 32% of the time. Moreover, humans encour- aged the male dog (to ‘get her, boy!’ in one case) 12% of the time and laughed out loud 18% of the time when a female dog was being raped/humped. Humans only laughed 7% of the time when a male dog was raped/humped, and many male owners showed shame consistent with a homophobic response in many such instances (Anderson 2004; Doherty and Anderson 2004)."
"When a male dog ‘dry humped’ or penetrated a female dog who showed no signs of resisting, 81% of female human companions attempted to stop the engagement. Only 13% of male companions attempted to interrupt the humping behavior. No female dogs initiated humping or other acts which could be consid- ered sexual (since we generally do not consider the sniffing of one dog’s anus by another dog to be a sexual behavior amongst dogs so much as a specialized form of canine greeting and sociality), though they occasionally did appear to hump in dominance displays, which nearly always merely elicited laughter and gendered comments from human onlookers/companions and were rarely broken up before they concluded on their own"
"Oppression of dogs Gender had an apparent effect on the way a dog was treated (cf. Kydd and McGreevy 2017). Male human companions referred to their male dogs as ‘buddy’ 97% more often than did female human companions (4426 documented examples of a male human companion calling his male dog ‘buddy’ versus 2247 documented uses by female companions of male dogs), who often just called the dog by his name. Males also referred to female dogs as ‘girl’ (e.g. ‘come here, girl,’ ‘good girl,’ and ‘atta girl’) 89% more frequently than did female human companions (3543 incidents versus 1872). There was not a single incident when I overheard the word ‘bitch’ being used to refer to a female dog by a female human companion, but this word was heard a total of 108 times by male human companions."
tell me what you guys think and if we can somehow use this to eradicate both rape cultures
