ijustlovemyredshinyshoes asked
(tw: rape) someone the other night said "tequila rapes me" and I didn't know how to respond. I just stared at them with wide eyes while my boyfriend acted unimpressed by their comment but I want to respond better the next time someone is "raped by [their] test" or something equally as ignorant. what would misandry mermaid say to them?

misandry-mermaid:

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.

Ex:

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.

disabledgirlism:

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.

orgyporgy:

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.

Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing.

in 1930 the average wages were $27,481
in 2012 the average wages were $44,321

in 1930 the average home cost $53,635
in 2013 the average home cost $289,500

in 1930 the average car cost $8,369
in 2013 the average car cost $31,352

but no you are probably right it’s just twenty-somethings being lazy

So long as I confine my activities to social service and the blind, they compliment me extravagantly, calling me ‘arch priestess of the sightless,’ ‘wonder woman,’ and a ‘modern miracle.’ But when it comes to a discussion of poverty, and I maintain that it is the result of wrong economics—that the industrial system under which we live is at the root of much of the physical deafness and blindness in the world—that is a different matter! It is laudable to give aid to the handicapped. Superficial charities make smooth the way of the prosperous; but to advocate that all human beings should have leisure and comfort, the decencies and refinements of life, is a Utopian dream, and one who seriously contemplates its realization indeed must be deaf, dumb, and blind.

funny how the most popular narrative about helen keller is a harmless little girl who learns to communicate and then the story ends for some reason gee i wonder why that is
