"You know…I have always considered women to be people." -George R.R. Martin
Made rebloggable upon request. Original ask here.
This speaks to so many of the problems I have with some blogs I come across. I’m not as familiar with this particular tumblr besides what pics I’ve seen, but I have had to stop and take breaks from tumblr because of the disturbing content. I like extreme BDSM but when it’s accompanied by captions that sound like genuine misogyny and dehumanizing, I get sick to my stomach. Especially with the blogs whose theme is being forced into submission by brainwashing. I’m not into that. Hopefully it stays a fantasy for individuals and good for you if you can find someone to act that out with you, but I find it disturbing.
Also, it feels weird to be reblogging this from rape—-princess.
"Rick Ross condoned rape in that song … and he should apologize, and his apology that he offered was unacceptable."
-Talib Kweli on Rick Ross’ rape lyric
The lyrics in question talk about drugging a woman and taking her home. “Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it,” raps Ross.
Apparently RR believes that since he didn’t use the word ‘rape’ that this is all a misunderstanding. -_-
Steubenville football players drug, kidnap, and gang rape unconscious girl, call themselves “Rape Crew”, tweet about it, take pictures of it, and video tape it. They are essentially sentenced to 1-2 years. The media bends over backwards to portray them sympathetically.
Marissa Alexander fires a warning gunshot to defend herself against abusive husband. No one is hurt. She is sentenced to 20 years.
Man: Hello, I’d like to report a mugging.
Officer: A mugging, eh? Where did it take place?
Man: I was walking by 21st and Dundritch Street and a man pulled out a gun and said, “Give me all your money.”
Officer: And did you?
Man: Yes, I co-operated.
Officer: So you willingly gave the man your money without fighting back, calling for help or trying to escape?
Man: Well, yes, but I was terrified. I thought he was going to kill me!
Officer: Mmm. But you did co-operate with him. And I’ve been informed that you’re quite a philanthropist, too.
Man: I give to charity, yes.
Officer: So you like to give money away. You make a habit of giving money away.
Man: What does that have to do with this situation?
Officer: You knowingly walked down Dundritch Street in your suit when everyone knows you like to give away money, and then you didn’t fight back. It sounds like you gave money to someone, but now you’re having after-donation regret. Tell me, do you really want to ruin his life because of your mistake?
Man: This is ridiculous!
Officer: This is a rape analogy. This is what women face every single day when they try to bring their rapists to justice.
