Rape...

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 20, 2011, 12:05 AM
:icontransparentplz:
It's a word that a fandom used on daily basis. But I'm sorry to say it, not all those who use it realize what the fuck they are saying and I sorta came to the end of my patience with this. I never, and never will approve the use of this word in many contexts the fandom has it.

One simple example is "Altair's, Ezio's,etc rape face..." I know it's a joke to you and you might get butthurt reading this and I know and seen many other worse examples, but kids, you, those of you who use "rape" without thinking, those of you who think RAPE IS CUTE, SEXY OR FUNNY, I seriously want to slap you.

You might say it's ONLY A WORD, but at the same moment when you "play along", you're disrespecting all the rape victims around the world. RAPE is a serious crime! And what do you do? You confuse, rough CONSENSUAL sex with RAPE.

I do understand that you're young, that is a thing people say, but they don't mean it, I know what's in your head, but you don't really know what's in the head of all the others. And if you don't understand the full consequences of a thing you say, DO NOT SAY IT. You have no idea what you're saying when you state a thing like "I wanna be raped by Altair". Just stop this mindless idiocy.

"Rape inducing assassin"??? Is that your idea of fun? LUST INDUCING ASSASSIN. That is what that character might start in you, NOT RAPE! This is how you confuse things.

You're free to unwatch me if you my words butthurt you. But next time you use "rape" so carelessly, think. Think of how would you feel if you would be a rape victim and somebody next to you would say "I wanna be raped by somebody!"

THINK BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING!!!

This. Just all of this.

As a real rape victim it just angers me when I read comments like "I wanna be raped by ___!" I always just pass the comments over, but I hate just knowing that they're there. People need to realize that people that is has actually happened to may read what is written.

Kudos for voicing your opinion! And if anyone unwatches you over this they deserve to get slapped! :XD:

Thank you very much. Sadly, my rapist was never caught, and he is still continuing to hurt people today. Hopefully he slips up somehow and is finally caught for all the people he's hurt.

And Lol but really :iconslapplz: :XD:

I'm not a fan of the word or what it implies,
even if used in jokes. But then again, I've always
been disgusted by violating and sexual humour.
Some bits of the fandom just seem not to know
how to express themselves or what they fan over
appropriately.

..
....
That said, I was thinking wouldn't it be the same for
any criminal offense? Say for example, for murder.
Is it generally more acceptable to joke around with
someone and say "I'll kill you" or "omg if I die I wanna
be killed by Altair"? Or I guess it just depends on the
person or how people take it into context(?). :dead:

It is actually, but in certain way. Same could be discussed about using "gay" as an insult and so on. But I stopped to rape because in this society that teaches more "don't get raped" than "don't rape", I feel like those voice out such statements don't really know what exactly they ask for and what they do to those around them.

Saying "I wanna be killed by...", all in all it implies an action brought on yourself. Once "made", that's it. Not much for the person to "suffer". That finishes there if god forbid it would happen. I personally never heard such a thing, and statements like "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die", imply something else than "I hope I stumble on a hot guy and he will rape me".

D8 I think I get it.
In a way, it's like insulting some
people who have actually experienced
and/or have to live with it. Like calling
someone 'gay' or 'retarded', but rape is
much more serious. It's as you said, people
don't know what they're asking for.

I'm a rape survivor and get upset when folks use it in a context as mentioned here, as well as in place of other terms. I recently heard someone say "I totally raped your ass" instead "kicked your ass". I wanted to slap them so hard. People don't realize the horror this act truly is. Thank you for speaking your mind; this needed to be said. I suggest you write a news article here on devart about this.

That is horrible. I'm sorry you had to go through that. And yes, saying a thing like that it's highly upsetting. :hug: I hope you're ok.

As for the dev news. Never did this before. Donno exactly how it works...

go to devnews and click on the "submit article" link on the right side. Give it a title and fill in the info for your rant. It's pretty self explainatory.

I agree entirely. If I could LIKE stuff on DA like on Facebook, I would so like this. :heart:
I have a problem with saying "retarded" a lot, and I hate that I do. I know I shouldn't, but it just slips out. Stuff like this is not funny at all. It's a real life problem that real people are struggling through, and I think the best we can do is give our respect. I think it's HORRIBLE when people say "I wanna rape/be raped by this guy!" That's sick! Why did it become the new trend?

Thanks for sharing Dee :heart:

I just got a comment from a rape victim who seems that actually during a game got this line "I totally raped your ass".

Now imagine how she felt when this was spoken to her instead of "I totally kicked your ass". :| That's why I don't like this "rape" thing!

A friend of mine, has a friend, who got raped. To use that word in menaings like "face-rape" makes me irritated, just like you... I get angry, and thank you for posting this. People should be a little more considerate of those who actually are victims and not just spray words around them... ):

In Sweden we had a man who raped and abused women fom 1998-2000, then he had a pause, and again in 2005 he tried to rape a women, and he abused her pretty hard. He only got 14 years in prison... ): Somethings wrong when the sentence is to low

I agree with you Dee, saying "I want (insert name here) to rape me" is stupid. Rape is something serious, it's horrible what happens to rape victims. For some people it's just a word or a joke, but it's because they don't realize how horrible rape is
