Incidentally, the scandal surrounding the German band Rammstein and their singer Till Lindemann can be seen as a current example of this question: The women who were allegedly brought to Lindemann “would have known what they were getting into, the way they were dressed”. – you can literally hear the 47 percent of the survey say. What really happened now is in the hands of the investigators. One thing is certain: Yes, these women voluntarily went to a backstage party. However, they have never asked to wake up to the memory gaps they have reported in conversations with journalists. And here lies the crux: Lindemann, Rammstein, superstars in general are frenetically celebrated by their fans, men and women alike. That an idol like the frontman of a band, who is worshiped like a messiah by his followers, could do bad things to a fan is inexplicable for many. Welcome to a system in which 47 percent of young men see provocative behavior as a request.
This result also strengthens the results from the first two questions of the survey: almost fifty percent of young men in Germany think they are the pike in the garden pond, the pike, the guy who can take anything and everything. Obviously we live in a country where patriarchy still reigns supreme, where women are best off following and doing what men tell them to do.
I say: I’m not going to do that. I’m tired of still having to explain in 2023 that only a clear yes is clear agreement. I don’t want to understand that men justify everything – from jogging in the evening to a dirndl at the Oktoberfest – as a request for misconduct, that they claim the right to see the mere existence of a woman as a request.
By the way: Fifty percent of the male respondents do not want a relationship with a partner who has had many sexual partners. However, 37 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 35 in Germany would like to have sex with as many women as possible. The logic? Got lost somewhere between “slap in the face” and “sexual misconduct”…
48 percent of young men in Germany feel disturbed by gays in public
Holding hands, kissing – all of this should be normal for everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. However, this is nothing more than a beautiful pipe dream: 48 percent of the male respondents to the survey by Plan International Germany feel disturbed when being gay is shown in public. Please what? 42 percent would say something to men who seemed too “feminine” to them. It is shameful that “gay” is still used as a swear word.
