And have I fallen so far
And is the hour so late
That nothing remains but the cry of my hate?

trigger warning: rape, sexual assault
By Jacqueline M. Allain
Sexual Agency, Power, and Consent
According to one historian, “few scholars… have viewed the relationships of enslaved men and free white women through the lens of sexual abuse in part because of gendered assumptions about sexual power” (Foster, p. 459). This is in keeping with both the standard feminist conceptualization of rape as a tool of patriarchal oppression3 as well as the traditional (un-feminist) notion of women as too weak, emotionally and physically, to commit serious crimes, let alone sexual abuse, and the idea that men cannot be raped (Bourke, 2007, pp. 219, 328). However, it is becoming increasingly clear that women, too, are capable of committing sexual offenses and using sex as a means of domination and control (Bourke, pp. 209-248).
As a black woman and survivor of sexual trauma, this is really tough to digest. The article theorizes about the psychological and situational reasons why a white woman would essentially rape/coerce/assault/harass/threaten their black male slaves.
