I saw this picture on my facebook today. It certainly hit a chord for me and I have a feeling it will for some of you as well. Not too long ago I posted my feelings and opinions about Victim Blaming and how women
are may fear men; this woman and her statement are right up the alley of that discussion.
This picture was originally posted on the STFU, Conservatives tumbler page. I don’t know anything about that blog, but I took a quick peek at it when I went to find this picture, and it seems like they have some interesting commentaries.
Anyway, as I was looking at the picture and reading the associated comments, I was quite taken aback and angered by what some [ignorant] people have to say about this issue. It is quite disgusting. Sorry, Disgusting isn’t even a good enough word.
Then I saw this part of the comment section near the end:
One person wrote,
“But then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you”.
To which the blog authors responded (with bolded text):
“We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capable of rational thinking and understanding.
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it.
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them.
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed.
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?”
LIke I said before, I don’t know anything about the writers of this STFU, Conservatives blog, but they are sure on the right side of the debate, in my opinion.
