SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT.

SHOTS FIRED.

To all those who don’t think the rape joke was a problem, or rape jokes are a problem.

I get it, you’re a decent guy. I can even believe it. You’ve never raped anybody. You would NEVER rape anybody. You’re upset that all these feminists are trying to accuse you of doing something or connect you to doing something that, as far as you’re concerned, you’ve never done and would never condone.

And they’ve told you about triggers, and PTSD, and how one in six women is a survivor, and you get it. You do. But you can’t let every time someone gets all upset get in the way of you having a good time, right?

So fine. If all those arguments aren’t going anything for you, let me tell you this. And I tell you this because I genuinely believe you mean it when you say you don’t want to hurt anybody, and you don’t see the harm, and that it’s important to you to do your best to be a decent and good person. And I genuinely believe you when you say you would never associate with a rapist and you think rape really is a very bad thing.

Because this is why I refuse to take rape jokes sitting down-

6% of college age men, slightly over 1 in 20, will admit to raping someone in anonymous surveys, as long as the word “rape” isn’t used in the description of the act.

6% of Penny Arcade’s target demographic will admit to actually being rapists when asked.

A lot of people accuse feminists of thinking that all men are rapists. That’s not true. But do you know who think all men are rapists?

Rapists do.

They really do. In psychological study, the profiling, the studies, it comes out again and again.

Virtually all rapists genuinely believe that all men rape, and other men just keep it hushed up better. And more, these people who really are rapists are constantly reaffirmed in their belief about the rest of mankind being rapists like them by things like rape jokes, that dismiss and normalize the idea of rape.

If one in twenty guys is a real and true rapist, and you have any amount of social activity with other guys like yourself, really cool guy, then it is almost a statistical certainty that one time hanging out with friends and their friends, playing Halo with a bunch of guys online, in a WoW guild, or elsewhere, you were talking to a rapist. Not your fault. You can’t tell a rapist apart any better than anyone else can. It’s not like they announce themselves.

But, here’s the thing. It’s very likely that in some of these interactions with these guys, at some point or another someone told a rape joke. You, decent guy that you are, understood that they didn’t mean it, and it was just a joke. And so you laughed.

And, decent guy who would never condone rape, who would step in and stop rape if he saw it, who understands that rape is awful and wrong and bad, when you laughed?

That rapist who was in the group with you, that rapist thought that you were on his side. That rapist knew that you were a rapist like him. And he felt validated, and he felt he was among his comrades.

You. The rapist’s comrade.

And if that doesn’t make you feel sick to your stomach, if that doesn’t make you want to throw up, if that doesn’t disturb you or bother you or make you feel like maybe you should at least consider not participating in that kind of humor anymore…

Well, maybe you aren’t as opposed to rapists as you claim.

The game has been changed.

the game has not been changed that is probably why he got a no with his insensitive unreasonable self

'I spent money on you now you are mine, since you said no I want a refund'….yeahhhhh good thing she said no!

Fuck you cunts! She will never be able to give him back the shattered pieces of his heart that she stole from him or repair the damage she caused, if she won’t return the love he had for her, she may as well return all the money he worked hard for just to shower her with it and express his love and desire for her that she had just thrown back in his face. This is the exact reason I laugh at my friend for buying girls expensive ass gifts haha. Oh and before you go saying that that is obviously why he probably gets more girls than me, every one of those girls left him within the first few months lol Heart-breaking, gold digging cunts.

why won’t the cunts love you tho

Everything that is wrong with the dating game, summed up in one headline.

From the article:

A woman who turned down a marriage proposal from a wealthy suitor was shocked when he handed her a bill for roughly $185,000 that he claims amounts to all the money he spent on her.
Single mother Marie Lacombe(42), from Melbourne, Australia, says she was never actually romantically involved with 65-year-old Bruce Dusting, Scallywag reports.

So delusional guy twenty years her senior turns what she believes to be a friendship during a hard time to basically be indentured servitude. And SHE’S the bad person.

^^^^

And even if they’d actually been going out, just because he spent money DOESN’T MEAN SHE OWES HIM THE REST OF HER LIFE. MARRIAGE IS NO LONGER A CONTRACT WHERE A MAN BUYS A WOMAN. GET THAT INTO YOUR HEADS!
And about “gold-diggers” - you’re the one deciding to let go of the money mate. No-one to blame but yourself.

THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO MY FRIEND. She dated this guy for a while and things didn’t work out and then he SENT HER A BILL FOR ALL THE MONEY HE SPENT DURING THEIR RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE THERE WAS NO RETURN ON HIS INVESTMENT. I’m so glad she’s not with him anymore. SO GLAD.
