continue to circle around the issue and accuse all men of being rapists or potential rapists until they kill themselves
This comic is such bullshit.
The issue is not that men get raped and women don’t care, the issue is that anytime women talk about rape, men want to butt in and silence women with “But men get raped toooooo” instead of starting their own damn conversations.
Way to demonize women for no reason and spread lies.
If you define saying “But men get raped too” as butting in and trying to silence women then you really do not care about rape and all you’re out to do is use rape for feminist political gain.
Because ACTUAL EQUALITY means you talk about male and female victims of rape in the same sentence instead of defaulting to female victims and male aggressors.
People say “But men get raped too” because feminists never talk about male victims of rape. You people try to erase male victims of rape. In none of your publications do you discuss these facts:
More than four in 10 teenage boys and young men say they’ve been coerced into unwanted sexual behavior, according to a new study.
The study published by the American Psychological Association journal Psychology of Men and Masculinity was based on a survey of 54 high school students and 230 college students, ages 14 to 26.
The survey, which was completed by high schoolers in the classroom and by college students electronically or in the classroom, found 43 percent of respondents had at least one unwanted sexual experience.
In those cases, 95 percent of respondents said the aggressor was a female acquaintance.
The Justice Department first discovered the startling form of abuse in 2010, when it surveyed more than 9,000 youngsters living in juvenile halls and group homes. More than 10 percent of the respondents said they’d been sexually abused by staff and 92 percent said their abuser was female.
In the last three years, the numbers haven’t changed much.
The Justice Department released its second report last month, and this time researchers surveyed more than 8,700 juveniles housed in 326 facilities across the country. In all, the facilities house more than 18,000 juveniles, representing about one quarter of the nation’s total number of youngsters living in detention centers.
Drawing on their sample, Justice Department researchers estimate that 1,390 juveniles in the facilities they examined have experienced sex abuse at the hands of the staff supervising them, a rate of nearly 8 percent. Twenty percent who said they were victimized by staff said it happened on more than 10 occasions. Nine out of 10 victims were males abused by female staff.
Not only that but you also erase women who are victims of other WOMEN. How many feminist publications out there talk about stuff like this?
Female prison in Oklahoma has highest rape rate in U.S.
A federal report placed the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center at the top of the list for sexual violence in female prisons, however, due to a pending lawsuit state Corrections Department officials declined to testify at a Department of Justice hearing on the matter this week.
McLOUD — Despite a federal report that found incidents of inmate-on-inmate sexual violence were double the national average at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, representatives from the prison declined to testify at an annual Department of Justice hearing on the matter Wednesday.
The 2012 Bureau of Justice Statistics report found 15.3 percent of the inmates surveyed at the female facility reported some form of sexual abuse or rape from another inmate. This rate was highest in the nation for female institutions.
In one of the most important and controversial documentaries of the last five years, filmmakers Justine Chang and Armand Kaye examine a crime that has been ignored, discounted, and even declared impossible. The result of years of research and production, She Stole My Voice: A Documentary About Lesbian Rape is a jarring, terrifying, and eye-opening look at this lesbian rape and sexual violence between women.
The film masterfully interweaves community responses, expert analyses, and graphic reenactments to create an absolutely unforgettable experience. Viewers will see the reality and prevalence of this crime, and learn how the community as a whole, law enforcement, and even the lesbian community itself have repeatedly discounted this crime. And in the unforgettable and terrifyingly graphic reenactments of lesbian rape, viewers will begin to truly understand the chilling and horrific experience of actual lesbian rape.
Like I said, you guys use rape as a way to gain political and sympathy points. You really don’t want to STOP RAPE.
I dare you to come back at me with cites that refute what I cited above. I DARE YOU.
Everyone watch her ignore this post…
The first commenter is also not reading the comic correctly. In the first panel the straw-feminist is talking about resources for rape survivors. Having male rape survivors asking for help isn’t trying to deny or apologize rape culture, or hijack the argument, its about fellow survivors asking for help.
"Your too fat."
"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"
"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"
"Cosplay to your size!"
"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"
"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."
"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."
"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."
To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:
I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3
Some things I’ve learned in the CBT clinics I’ve been going to regarding anxiety that I thought might be helpful to some.
Pay it forward.
If you play on someone’s phobias for a laugh, I will fucking shank you in the nadgers.
As someone who has diagnosed GAD, Social Anxiety, OCD, a legitimate phobia called Ranidaphobia and other mental health issues such as Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder- posts like these mean a lot. Thanks to the OP x
#can we talk about this #just for a second #can we talk about how this show took valuable time out of its short episodes to throw in little moments like this #moments that humanized ”the enemy” #and showed the war from a different perspective #and made the audience stop and realize the Fire Nation wasn’t inherently evil #like we were at first led to believe #*sighs* idk what i’m saying #I still get really really emotional about A:TLA (via equalistmako)

It is so exceptionally hard to pull off that cartoony look, but this chick like… knocked it out of the park. Perfection.

Hollywood: “But we can’t make the costumes look like they do in the comic books or cartoons! It’s too unrealistic!”
Hollywood: “It won’t look right!”
Hollywood: “Fans demand realism!”
Me: "YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIIIEEESSS!!!!!"
