A slapdash amalgamation of fandom, politics, and some truly random stuff. I post a lot of In the Flesh and Supernatural. And yes, I tag!

You know, YES, false rape accusations are fucked up, nobody is going to dispute that, BUT they’re NOT a problem like people seem to think they are. They are NOT ACTUALLY common place enough for you to show such hostility to every victim that comes forward. They’re actually quite fucking rare because nobody WANTS to go through that shit. You must not care to realize the shit rape victims go through when they come forward. The toxic response to rape victims is precisely why so many women DON’T report.
And why do MRAs not talk about the fact that actual false rape allegations often times have more to do with racism than sexism? It affects Black men, Latino men, but they don’t care. Funny how that works.
What they actually care about is the fact that they don’t understand that women are capable of consent and should be consenting; women are not sex objects for you to act upon. You need to make sure she is ACTUALLY consenting, not drunk, not coerced, and not just force yourself on her, regardless of how she’s responding, and then get surprised later when she accuses you of assault. Women don’t “regret” sexual experiences and then call it rape like you think they do. That doesn’t even make sense, especially considering how often rape accusations ruin the lives of the VICTIM more than the perpetrator. Why would a woman say, “man, I can’t believe I slept with that dude, guess I better say it was rape!” No. Stop. That only shows how much disrespect you have for women, how you find them utterly incapable of logic and ruled entirely by some emotional, vindictive core. Stop that. You’re being an asshole.

- wear makeup
- have sex with you
- be feminine
- be graceful
- be fashionable
- wear pink
- love men
- be the media’s idea of perfection
- listen to your bullshit
- have a vagina
This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.
