We all know, by now, that you should never read the comments.
Apparently, we can’t read the internet at all anymore, because this is an actual, non-satire, not-in-the-comments thing I just read. (Warning: will probably cause instant head explosion):
In the modern context, rape is essentially the act of ultimate validation and a rape accusation is the ultimate act of attention whoring. I’m not supporting it of course, don’t be silly. But think about it. If a man finds a woman SO incredibly desirable that he would throw his freedom, reputation, his whole life away to fuck her, that shows the woman is on the highest echelon of desirability. And in fact, women have begun to routinely accuse men of rape purely for the ego validation that the onslaught of attention brings them. Even though the night before, they gleefully received the gent’s ravishment… Proceed with caution but proceed. And if you can, get out of the Anglosphere so you can relax and get down to business without concern for your freedom. Your penis will thank you.
(Hell no, I’m not linking to that shit.)
The bolded bits are mine, and they denote:
- The initial head explosion.
- The part where the bits and pieces of my exploded head themselves exploded.
- The part where the twice-exploded sub-bits lit themselves on fire and threw themselves out the window.
Never have I been so glad to occupy the nadir of the desirability echelon, which, by the way, is also the name of my about-to-be-formed feminist post-punk klezmer women’s septet. Just so we’re all clear:
- Rape is about sex, not power.
- Women are missing a valuable self-actualization opportunity to view rape as a self-esteem boost.
- Rape trials are the funnest.
- Raping women in foreign countries where rapes aren’t prosecuted as intensively is a-okay.
Thank god he clarified that he is NOT supporting rape in instances where he may be criminally liable.
Yes, there were comments on this post. Lots of ’em. No, I did not read them, if only to maintain my tenuous grip on sanity by allowing myself to believe that there’s only one person in the world who thinks this way.
Hey there, men who find this as preposterous as I do: do something about this shit. I’d try, but I’m not coming near these guys without a sword and an iron-clad rape shield law. It’s not my job to convince men that I’m a person.
