some boy: stop generalizing all men
some boy: as a guy, i have to say, this is just how guys are, this is what the bros are like, im just saying whats on every guys mind, if your man says differently he's lying, real men don't ____, im a piece of shit
I would just ask them what they mean and keep asking questions so they’d have to pick apart their own statement until they’re either tired of it or realize how awful it was.
Him: “That test totally raped me!”
You: “What do you mean?”Him: “I just wasn’t prepared at all.”
You: “But… what does that have to do with rape?”
Him: “Like, it totally took me by surprise.”
You: “Is that what you imagine all rape looks like?”
Him: “No, I just mean it was way worse than I thought.”
You: “So why didn’t you say that instead of using the word rape?”
Him: “I was just joking.”
You: “Do you think of rape as a joke?”
etc etc. Just respond to everything they say with another question, so they are constantly trying to defend what what meant to be a casual, flippant statement. If he uses the “it was just a joke” excuse, you can ask him to explain the joke to you and do the same line-of-questioning technique but picking apart the supposed joke instead.
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
Like when women hate men it’s frustrating at worst, maybe it hurts someone’s feelings, but when men hate women they are shamed, abused, patronized, demeaned, objectified, raped, and murdered, ya feel me, so even if I WAS a raging misandrist like worst case scenario I’d be a bummer at parties, meanwhile a girl somewhere literally can’t leave her house because it’s dark outside.
