Rape joke who?
Rape joke who’s not fucking funny.
Don’t worry we’re good victims. We won’t cry too loud or demand your attention. Or ask for trigger warnings.
Men like to use the excuse “boys get raped too”. When they hear women talking about their personal experiences.
First “boys get raped” should be it’s own sentence. If you’re only acknowledging their trauma to silence female survivors then you’re a scumbag.
Second, all the male survivors we know would kick your teeth in for saying that.
And your friends who aren’t survivors can’t sympathize with you until they know all the gory details. Please get your porn somewhere else.
And when you do get their sympathy it sounds like “someone cat called me once so I totally get it,” “someone stepped on my foot last week it was a man, I just felt so invaded.”
And to the boys who write poems “to raped girls, don’t worry there’s good men out there, the light at the end of such a dark tunnel!” They’ll hold your hand in court and everything.
Thank God I’ll get some thoughtful dick some day.
You know those poets will tell you: “Violets are growing in the shadows under your eyes.” They’re not violets, it’s skin. I know it’s skin. It’s good skin. It’s gonna be skin regardless what metaphors you attach to it.
You’ll be there when I cry, until my eyes get puffy and red. You won’t be tearing off my lace panties. Because they were expensive and they make me feel like I’m worth something.
Once you figure out that the only time I deep throat is with a feeding tube at the psych ward you’ll be gone.
And if you do want a healing relationship, how do you talk about it when the language is rooting against you? Hey wanna bang? Screw? Nail me. Everything is so violent.
- How to flirt with a rape survivor:
- Approach slowly and cautiously.
- Do not make any sudden movement or loud noises.
"Hey baby I’ve got anxiety, depression, ptsd, and crushing sexual insecurity." "You wanna come back to my place and hold my hair while I vomit?"
And then there’s feminists who feel entitled to our poetry and narratives because as they say “under the patriarchy like all women are constantly threatened by rape.”
What does that make us? Hold on Belissa, I’m turning into a statistic! Holy pepper spray Batman! I can only see in binary! The one’s look like penises! Quick Ann! You’ve got to pull it together for SlutWalk!
Truly, nothing helps rape survivors of all gender, ethnicity, and economic level than rich white girls walking around half naked while collaborating with the police.
Because the cops historically are so good at supporting victims and catching rapists. Getting real tired of SlutWalk slogans too.
- "Don’t slut shame me!" How about "Do not refer to me as a slut. Ever."
- "Real men don’t rape" Oh shit, must have been a ghost then.
- "Consent is sexy." Lingerie is sexy, consent is a basic human right.
You guys are supposed to be the adults we look up to but we went through our moon goddess phase in 7th grade.
Humor helps trauma. We just want to know that you’re laughing with us. We joke about it because it is ours to joke about similar to how our bruises are ours to poke at and yours to keep away from.
