SERIOUSLY THIS IS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE FUCKING LIKELY
Hi! Thanks for the question. I do understand where your concern comes from; however, this is not a rape case. They started dating when she was 17....
It’s fascinating…the things that I am supposed to be “flattered” by. People practically demand that I be flattered by certain mistreatment, injustice and oppression, and then question my level of “sensitivity” or even my intelligence when I am not flattered.
[Ok, so you don’t want people to judge you for what you feel is your own individuality and own set of traits that only you have control over, i.e. it not being anyone else’s business. You don’t want to be painted with the same brush as everyone else that you can easily be shoved into the same class as, and you want your individuality to be seen as beautiful and receive respect because you, as everyone else, are a human being. To some degree, I can accept this. But when guys ask for acceptance for their individual traits, you tell them they can fuck off because you want some sense of safety for yourself more than you care about others being respected. That is not alright.
And yes, I am aware that your size does not affect if other people are going to be a victim of assault or not. Although I’ll tell you anecdotally speaking it lowers your own chances. However, your chances of being raped every year while living in America are, giving the benefit of the doubt to the heavy brush sweeps of the DOJ, roughly about the same of your chance as an earthling of dying of obesity-related complications. So time you spent crusading against would-be rapists could just as easily be spent lowering your statistic chance of dying early, but I guess your priorities are more in diminishing the respect of the male class than increasing that of yourself. Good day.]
You are seriously trying to argue that a person’s right to feel safe due to valid fears of being sexually assaulted are not as important as men being respected? Dudes being creepy, participating in street harassment or assuming that all their sexual advances must be taken as a compliment are not unique traits. They are the norm completely based in male privilege. The idea that someone making someone else feel unsafe is something that shouldn’t be discussed or disputed is bullshit. The fact that you are more worried about being labeled as a being creepy for exhibiting these behaviors instead of being angry that women have their bodies violated is bullshit. Your sir are super fucked up and deserve no respect from any person if this is seriously how you think about rape culture.
The idea that someones physical appearance has anything to do with their chances of being raped is a lie. Rape is all about power and control. The idea that fat bodies are not attractive so they are less likely to be raped is a huge issue related to fat discrimination. Fat women are actually more likely to be revictimized when they come forward to report their sexual assault due to people believing they are not attractive enough to be raped. So good job at continuing to perpetuate rape culture. Also, if you don’t want to be lumped into categories with creepy dudes stop talking about how anecdotally speaking my body lowers my chances of being raped…because have you been paying attention to other rapists or is this a personal preference?
I’m going to continue to live in my body how I want and keep knocking male privilege denying assholes such as yourself off that goddamn pedestal you all think you deserve to stand on. A person’s right to not have their body violated or feel unsafe is far more important to me than your cries about having your feelings hurt.
