bronies misogyny rape rapey whaaaaa?

A Brony has some truly horrifying questions about rape

I have no words:

Is Mr. Sookdeo trolling here? Over on Bronysay, where I found this, someone claiming to know him says he was serious, just a bit “confused.” The questions seem sincere to me. Ugh.

Vindicare: Where did I imply that you weren’t getting the reference? Where?

You said we didn’t understand the science (because we believed what was taught), and therefore the actual ideas you espoused (the possibility of the attacker in the alley disappearing) were possible, and so we didn’t really “get” you.

That’s why some of us think “sentient bong hit ” is an accurate description, because that’s the sort of thinking which comes of one too many tokes/brownies.

>>>What is love?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Or so She says.

So the other day David Futrelle posted about a Brony with an extremely problematic Facebook post, but it exploded into a physics and pseudoscience knowledge county fair prize-winning wang size contest. That’s not to say it wasn’t hilarious, because it was, as baiting trolls so often is.

Posts like Jon Sookdeo’s Facebook post are why rape jokes are not okay. They add to the “rape is not a big deal” pile, which really doesn’t need added to; there is so much other humor and language out there that could be used instead. If Sookdeo is ignorant, that desensitization adds to his issue. If he’s a troll, it still adds to the issue because he could be influencing the views of others around him who are ignorant.

Pecunium, my friend, I will take this opportunity, however, to point out that “butthurt” is a rape reference. Please consider that.

(Oddly, and unrelated to anything, I used to work with Caroline Pinkie Pie. She is a rad lady.)

I was hoping Sookdeo’s Facebook wall was public, but alas, it is not. I wanted to see where the comments on it had got to.

hunh… It never read that way to me. More as getting one’s knickers in such a twist, (or from clenching too hard) that one’s butt (not asshole) is in pain. It’s a self-inflicted wound, at least as used in my circles (which includes the army, not a bastion of rape sensitivity).

I appreciate that you see it as a rape analogy, it’s not the way I was using it.

I understand that you weren’t using it that way, but the fact remains that there are a not insignificant number of people who see it way. It’s not as if the phrase can’t be easily replaced with other words.

Can I still say “rule of thumb”? What about “picnic”?

I always assumed “butthurt” to be a corporal punishment reference, myself.

Pecunium, yes, that rape joke from me was unfunny and inconsiderate, I understand that now. I feel so stupid… AND guilty. I hope you all can accept my apology!!

How could I possible know you indeed did get the reference? You said nothing!

I hope people, who read this thread here, see it as a warning of the dangers of being too opinionated: It happens that you are proven wrong, no matter how intelligent and thoughtful you are. And so, after removing my foot from my mouth I’m now eating humble pie.

But I find it very mean that you suggest, I would do drugs, just because I have some problems with my memory. I’ve always stayed away from them! Ok, I now feel the need to cuddle up to my boyfriend, put on Tori Amos and cry. That means I am GOING TO LEAVE now and never come back!

has vindicare moved on to the ‘passive-aggressive smarm’ portion of his long-form whine or was he just there from the beginning

Honestly I think Vindicare is just making a study of jerk behaviour online.

I can’t accept something you haven’t made. If you made one, I would consider it: I would have to estimate the sincerity.

Do yourself a favor… stick the flounce.

rape is actually the percusor of sex, if it wasnt for rape men during the stone ages wouldnt have been able to have sex in the first place, it only EVOLVED into sex when they started to learrn how to ask.

Troll harder.

Hey… you think animals don’t have consensual sex? You clearly haven’t watched enough animals fucking.

joyce: You need to work harder. If you really believe that, you need to study sex. If you don’t, you need to make it more plausible.

Ok. What. The. Fuck.
For one thing, even if you didn’t have to suffer any other issues, there is still the STD, pregnancy, and being physically subdued/restrained/possibly physically damaged by a violent attack.

Even if you were some kind of psychologically invincible eigenmensch woman who never had to deal with trauma or shame or anything, you would still be getting violently subdued.

And the vast majority of good people in the world are very vulnerable to trauma and violation.
