Anonymous said: liking rape play does not mean someone needs therapy and does not mean someone is using it as a susbstitute for therapy? can people not just like it? i'm a feminist yet i'm a sub and yeah i like rape play? it doesn't mean i'm not for gender equality and certainly does not mean i need therapy, it just means i like being fucked in certain ways. from what you're responding with to these asks it sounds like you really do not know anything. how is rape play not good for someone? there's nothing wrong
there’s nothing wrong with pretending you’re raping someone because you get sexual pleasure out of the idea of that? okay. you don’t ‘like being fucked in certain ways’, you’re saying that you like it when men pretend to rape you. rape isn’t being fucked. rape is rape. have you ever thought about extending your game? next time you’re pretending to be raped, why not spice it up with the years and years of emotional trauma? why not have pretend counselling? pretend inability to trust anyone around you? because that’s what rape it is. it is not ‘being fucked’.
saying ‘i’m a feminist’ before you sexualise the rape and abuse of millions of victims doesn’t make it okay. saying ‘i’m a feminist’ in no way defends your shitty, selfish choices.
regardless, i was telling that last person to seek help for the feelings she has about abuse and rape in general, because it really does help. not b/c she’s just doing rape play. i don’t care that your a feminist.
getting angry at rape and abuse victims and telling them they ‘really do not know anything’ about the subject is literally fucking awful and you should be ashamed of yourself. please unfollow me and fuck off because this is the last time i want to see ‘rape players’ suggest they know more about abuse than actual victims. I can at least speak to people and debate with people who are at least vary around victims and try to understand why victims will not support their practice, but people like you I will not even tolerate. If you message me again I’ll only block you.
