heavy trigger warnings for rape.
all right, I’ve calmed down enough to post this, and hell fuckin’ no I ain’t blurrin’ out names.
hi my name is rachael, and this is why feminism is still needed. I have nothing else to say.
yooooo if you wanna know what the fuck i was so mad about, read the following and spread it please!!
this is physically painful to read oh my fucking god
I’m going to puke.
Rachael, I am so, so, so sorry that this happened to you.
The amount of times that I’ve had almost this exact argument when talking to people about why rape jokes are not acceptable is ridiculous, and it’s really upsetting and eerie to see that it happens to others.
I can’t even fucking believe this. Rachael I’m really proud of you for standing your ground and fuck I’m so sorry this happened. That this EVER happens. RAPE JOKES ARE. NOT. FUNNY. I don’t understand why that’s so hard for people to fucking understand…just. And yeah I wouldn’t have blurred out their names either because shit, if they’re gonna be assholes on the internet they best be ready for others to see it. They don’t even deserve to have their names blurred.
I actually sent Kylah a message on Facebook that reads
I NOTICED DAT U R TOTALLY HARDCORE AN THINK ITZ SO TOTALLY COOL TO TELL A RAPE VICTIM TO GO GET RAPED
Well, I’m here from the real world to tell you that your behaviour is simply not acceptable. I think that you look up the statistics of rapes and actually LISTEN to the stories of victims to understand WHY triggering is an issue, then issue an apology to Rachel.
If you choose not to educate yourself, I’ve no qualms sending the screenshots to [Highschool name] and perhaps they will be able to teach you WHY PSTD is such a horrendous issue that does not need the flames fanned upon, even online.
Have a great day.”
People don’t stop if they think they aren’t noticed.
