The truth is that the vacuum that builds up in a girl’s stomach as she quickens her pace through a desolate road, looking back every other minute to ensure there is no other shadow lurking behind her, is nothing but fear.

Fear is the single common heirloom, that as girls in India, we all inherit from our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends. Fear for self-preservation, and of men who can do things to hurt and shame us. We learn to weave this fear seamlessly into our lives and never even realize when it becomes second nature. This perpetual fear eats into a woman’s carefree spirit and keeps her on guard at all times.

"Nice guys commit rape too" - TW for rape/discussion and examples of rape apologism on link

We ought not to privilege some people with a higher status, absolving them of blame, according to our perception of them as a nice person. When we put someone up on a pedestal as a nice person, we fail to see them for what they really are: human. Humans are capable of anything, of rape, of murder, of assault. So what if they’re nice to their cat and they always send their gran a birthday card? The only thing we should judge people by are their actions and if one of those actions is rape, then they are a rapist, regardless of all the nice actions that came before the act of rape. Royse might easily believe that her friend was not to blame, but “mixed signals”, but for me? If a man penetrates an unconscious woman, that doesn’t make him a “nice guy”, as Royse calls him. And if a woman such as Royse defends the actions of a rapist? …Well, that doesn’t make her much more than a rape-apologist. Actions are what counts. Royse wrote a rape apologist article, and so she is a rape apologiser. It might seem black and white, but there is a very distinct line between consent and non-consent, between condoning rape and damning it.

She cheats on someone who is isn’t even married to, and gets fired. And Chris Brown…? He beats the living shit out of his girlfriend, is accepted back into the music industry, onto big ass talk shows, and then he makes a song with said ex-girlfriend - AND THAT’S ALL COOL? K, makes sense.

Anonymous asked: I think you mean "I have no counterargument". It's ok, have fun working at Starbucks then marrying a rich man to carry you through life, just like every moron woman (redundant) does.

No, I think I mean that your “argument” - if it can even be called that - is so unfounded and so bigoted that you expose yourself for what you are without me needing to say or do anything at all.

If you say things like “you’re not intelligent” (ableism), “moron woman” (ableism and sexism) and my degree will only get me a job in Starbucks (classism), quite frankly, it says a lot more about you than it does me or what I’m doing with my life. Which is, by the way, trying to have a positive influence in the world rather than a negative one - like you. Can I ask you what posting hateful anons is achieving you for your career path, seeing as that’s what you’re so focused upon? Please rethink your attitudes and values, or go away, get a notebook, and spew all your bile there away from humanity.
