Reasons Why

Just don’t strain yourself.

I found this festering, fetid pile via Friendly Atheist. There’s so much wrong with this that I don’t even know where to begin. To sum it all up, a Georgia girl was sexually assaulted by another student and she was expelled for “sexual impropriety”. Not the asshole who assaulted her, no. SHE’S the one who got punished.

But it gets so much fucking worse because we live in a society that is fucking drowning in rape culture but you’re fucking hysterical if you say otherwise woman because #NotAllMen or some shit:

Defendant Principal [Dan] Lane presented the school’s position at the hearing, asserting that because A.P. voluntarily met J. after school, she necessarily consented to everything that happened afterward — including the sexual assault. In his closing statements, Principal Lane argued, without evidence, that A.P. wanted to give J. oral sex as a birthday gift, and that she became angry after the incident not because her assailant was sending harassing and humiliating text messages, but because he did not show her affection afterwards.

Hey, Danny? How’s about I invite you over to my place, slip you a mickey, grope you while you’re unconscious and then take the keys to your car? Because, hey, you decided to take me up on the offer so you must have wanted to get assaulted and robbed, right? RIGHT?! Because that’s exactly what the fuck you are saying here, you blithering brain dead jackass!

I don’t want to hear the “But she should have just said no” bullshit.
I don’t want to hear the “Why didn’t she speak up” bullshit.
I don’t want to hear the “#NotAllMen” bullshit.

She said no and she was physically assaulted, so she felt she had to say yes because she was afraid.
She spoke up and not only did the school administration not believe her, they claimed that she wanted it.
#YesAllMen because the principal himself claimed it was consensual because she agreed to meet this guy.

This is why women refuse to speak up, this is why, through gritted teeth, women halfheartedly agree to sexual advances they never wanted, this is why women laugh in utter derision when hearing #NotAllMen.

There are some days when I just want to set fire to the universe and watch it burn. Today happens to be one of those days, for very obvious reasons.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
