TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE AND PRIVELEGE DENYING DOUCHEBAGS

Hey, you know who denies rape culture? RAPISTS!
You know who thinks a picture of some creepy guy watching vulnerable women sleep, or someone’s husband coming up behind them with chloroform is funny? RAPISTS!
You know who really doesn’t find this kind of thing funny? At least 1 in 4 women, who have been raped.
I’m sorry that you are so far up your own ass that you cannot see how never having woken up with some guy on top of you, with their cock inside you, raping you is FUCKING PRIVILEGE. But to a lot of women, in EVERY country these kind of experiences ARE a reality.
I’m sorry that I don’t live in Somalia and no one has ever mutilated my genitals. But that doesn’t mean I’ve never been raped. Just because I’m white and was raised middle class doesn’t mean no one’s ever taken advantage of me. I know I have some privilege, and I have never in my life tried to deny that. But I’m not so fucking privilieged that I can look at an ad that normalises rape and stalking and domestic violence and think that it’s just ‘silliness’ and nothing to get upset about.
I HAVE EVERY FUCKING RIGHT TO BE THIS ANGRY YOU SILENCING, RAPE APOLOGIST WANKER, BECAUSE UNLIKE YOU, BOTH ME AND MOST OF MY FEMALE FRIENDS HAVE ACTUALLY EXPERIENCED WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE RAPED AND WE DON’T APPRECIATE PEOPLE MAKING LIGHT OF IT AND USING TO SELL THEIR FUCKING PRODUCTS.
