The [mini] wank all begins when atoned states "male rape sickens me...male rape sickens me more because (this may sound wrong) the idea of a man being violated like that makes me sad. it's like i see men as being strong and fighters, i can't explain it. it's disgusting when it happens to women and waaaaaay more sickiening when it happens to children." (1, 2)
Her initial thought on the subject was misinterpreted and seemed to ruffle people's feathers.
coloursofsouls is one of the first to respond and keeps it short and sweet with her reply of "???". (3)
But then jkpolk chimes in "I think if you'd said male rape shocks you or surprises you more, people would have understood. But it's hard to relate to a statement that it sickens you more. It comes across as you putting a higher value on the safety and dignity of a man than you do a woman. And that will ruffle feathers. Violation is violation and it just seems odd to many people that someone would openly state that one bothers them more than the other. I can understand that you're talking about perception and how the traditional roles of men would have been dominant, and women submissive, so it seems like a bigger distance to cover to crush their dignity. But I don't agree with that view, and I don't think many folks here do. " (4)
Many other exchanges between atoned and other members occur in the thread. And in the end, atoned apologizes and says her words were misunderstood. She feels terrible and "[feels] like absolute shit now."
Guess serious talk is not meant for ohnotheydidnt. There is always someone around to twist your words. Sorry girl. I still love you and I know what you meant. ♥
EDIT: SURPRISE, YOU'RE ON
* secretly_fucked: "girl, unless it ends up on stupid_free you have nothing to be worried about." (5)
* atoned: "gosh, i hope it doesn't." (6)
