I’ve about had enough of all this feminist bullshit.
I’m female, and let me tell you, I would prefer that all of my company be male. I’m not even afraid that they’re going to rape me! Or drug me! Or take advantage of me because I have boobies and a hoohaa! And quite frankly, they don’t even treat me any different than they treat other men! And why is that? Because they don’t think I’m any different in status or worthiness than them. They don’t think I shouldn’t have as many/the same rights as them. They don’t treat me like the scum of the earth or that I should just make them sandwhiches, and take care of them like a baby, just because I’m female. These problems don’t exist, and quite frankly, I’m getting tired of other females saying they do.
I’m tired of other females tarnishing what it means to be female, which isn’t much. All it means to be female is that instead of a penis, you have a vagina. Instead of testicles, you have ovaries. Where they only have nipples, you’ve got breasts to feed a potential mini-you some day in the future. You might wear your hair longer, you might wear skirts, and hey, that’s cool, but that’s not even a requirement. I wear jeans all the time, and I like wearing jean that were made for girls because they accentuate my big, beautiful, curvy hips! I like wearing bras, because it prevents me from having back pain, and goddamn it, I hate, hate, hate getting my period because it makes me cranky and gives me cramps, not because I hate being a female. Getting your period doesn’t make you better than half the species that doesn’t get one. It inconveniences you. It’s a pain. It disrupts your daily activities, so everyone that wants me to “feel empowered” because I’m female, and I have breasts, a vagina, and I menstruate, can FUCK OFF, because, quite frankly, it isn’t special.
The thing that really bothers me is this cult-like obsession with rape. Feminists have this nasty obsession with it, and they like to throw around terms like “victim-blaming” and and “slut-shaming”. Personally, if you act like a slut, I’m going to call you out on it, especially if it has a direct correlation to the things that happen to you. And if you happen to make bad choices in what you ingest (I am pretty sure I saw you drink that beer), and then bad choices that follow after that, then yeah, I’m going to blame you, at least partly, for being a victim. And if you don’t like it, you know what to do!
So let’s get to the point of this post. Some girl I was friends with on Facebook posted an article on “redefining rape”. I bet some of you have seen it. It starts out with the line “If you’re married, it isn’t really rape.”, and continues on like that for the entirety of the article. This was meant as a satirical post against some party in the government cracking down on rape and rape accusations. One boy had brought up what I thought was a good point: What if you were drinking alcohol? Is it still all the other person’s fault? He went on to argue, that no, it wasn’t, some of it was the rape-ee’s fault. It was partly their fault because you know when you drink alcohol, your judgment is impaired, and you’re in no state to make these sorts of decisions (whether or not to have sex), so if you say “yes”, and the other person has sex with you, you can’t turn around and say they “raped” you. Similarly, if you black out because you were drinking so much, it is .0001% the rape-ee’s fault. Because again, they knew the effects of the alcohol, and feminists especially know that people do get raped, and so you shouldn’t drink to that point if you’re going to be somewhere where you can’t be sure that won’t happen to you (a party with people you hardly know. This means people you haven’t known and been friends with since middle school). A friend of mine happened to like this boy’s comment, and the girl who posted it FREAKED THE FUCK OUT. “Keep your gross opinions about rape out of my note/life, thanks” is what she said. The boy who like the comment (who she was talking to) hadn’t even COMMENTED.
This really sickened me, because she went on to justify what she RUDELY said to this boy was because of a conversation they had YEARS AGO. This is highly immature and naive, and just proves to me that feminists are crazy bastards, because you can’t possibly expect someone to have not changed at ALL in years. Whatever he thought then definitely isn’t the same as he thinks on the subject now, and you can tell by the things he says regarding violence in general (that it’s completely evil no matter what, and things like that). His friend came to his rescue, to again, try to make the point that people need to be careful when drinking if they suspect they might be raped, or even if they’re going to a party, and she and her femi-nazi friends attacked HIM. He didn’t even say anything negative, and in fact, was for the full prosecution of rapists, and made it quite clear. So I tried to back him up, and explain, very logically and calmly that they, as feminists, know that people get raped when people go to parties, when people drink alcohol. They know that generally, when they go to these places and get drunk, they don’t really know these people very well at all, and they can’t be 100% sure that they aren’t going to pull something sneaky. That if you’re that concerned about getting raped, and you KNOW YOU CAN’T MAKE DECISIONS WHEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL, that you should not be placing yourself in the VERY PLACE that rapists love to hang out! It just doesn’t make any sense. You are basically asking for it if you are so naive to think that you can trust everyone 100%. That’s just dumb. Come on now. Like nobody’s never stabbed you in the back (probably a double negative there, but you get what I’m saying).
I’m not even sure what this girl thought I was saying, because I was abundantly clear that I wasn’t trying to let rapists off the hook, quite the opposite really, considering the fact that my own mother was raped, and it’s really a touchy subject for myself as well. But I absolutely can’t stand when they think that only a rape victim gets to talk about rape, and then them and their friends who weren’t raped turn around and think they can say whatever they please as well. And I definitely can’t stand that they think they should be able to just walk around willy-nilly in places they know that will have a high chance of this happening, and then act COMPLETELY SURPRISED when it does. We can lock up your rapist for the next 1000 years, or whatever you want his sentence to be, but let’s at least acknowledge that you’ve made a bad decision by going to a party drunk, and expecting nothing bad to happen when you don’t even know half the people there. You know you can’t trust people, come on now. Why else do you lock your car doors when you go to the store, or lock the door to your house when you sleep or leave? Let’s just leave those unlocked too, because, hey, people shouldn’t steal!
My advice to this girl is to go get some therapy, instead of trying to blame everyone else, and make EVERYONE ELSE, not just rapists, out to be a bunch of monsters for expecting people to have some common sense and self-respect and be held accountable for their actions, and get over, or at least come to terms with what happened to her. Don’t blame me, or place responsibility for your mental and emotional stability on me. I didn’t rape you, nor did I ask the person who did to do it, so you can shut the fuck up, thanks.
PS- Once again, I don’t think at all that rapists should be let off the hook. I know I’ve actually said it in there, but I doubt anyone will pay attention to that, and so I’m going to say it again, so I can quickly point to it when people read the first 2 sentences and blow up like nobody’s business. I don’t condone rape, I don’t believe it’s entirely the rape-ee’s fault, etc and so forth. This is probably useless, but hey, at least when you say I didn’t say it, I can prove you wrong!
please excuse how long this is, but I had to reblog this enormous piece of bullshit that I came across on tumblr. If I was in the right place, I would rant…but I can’t even think right now. This makes me sick.
It’s awesome that people don’t treat you any differently because of your sex. But it is a pretty ignorant generalization to say because it doesn’t happen to you, it is not a problem. These issues are not made up. The “obsession” with rape isn’t women trying to stir up trouble. It is acknowledging the fact that as women, we are brought up to be fearful and are prepared to be victims when we shouldn’t have to worry about getting raped if we want to drink or if our dress is short. People have self-control. People who think men can be set off by a low cut shirt do not give men enough credit. It is not our job as women to protect men from their lust. I shouldn’t dress myself worrying about what it would cause another person to do to me. We do not cause rape. Rapists cause rape. There are always precautionary actions we can take to prevent being assaulted, but it is still never our fault. I don’t think you are a monster, but I do think you are pretty misinformed about these issues. - A dress-wearing, bra-wearing, leg-shaving FEMINIST.
