<ol><li><strong>What you just posted has<em> nothing</em> to do with the image.</strong>  The image is referring to the fact that <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAction/comments/2jjtv7/brianna_wus_jigsaw_threat_macro_exposed_image_is/">Brianna Wu was caught red-handed as having sent death threats <em>to herself</em></a>, and refuses to show anything that may prove otherwise.  This also goes hand-in-hand with the numerous instances of completely made-up bullshit that floats around on this site that later ends up being completely disproven, such as <a href="http://untrue-posts.tumblr.com/post/80240672599/dropmycumberbritches-georgian-first-grader">the alleged case of the little girl in Georgia sexually assaulted on the playground</a>:  Not only was it <a href="http://hedgehogula.tumblr.com/post/80253960733/just-a-short-3-image-story-about-keeping-it-real">a lie</a> (which <a href="http://tenaflyviper.tumblr.com/post/92716174150/leighvemealone-i-admit-it-i-lied-about-the">even the blog owner later admitted to</a>), but it has since been found that <a href="http://www.reddit.com/r/TumblrInAction/wiki/satiretumblrs#wiki_vegetable.28igh.29s.21">the blog it originated from was a troll blog to begin with</a>.<br/><br/>People have a right to be wary of the claims of women, just as much as they have a right to be wary of the claims of ANYONE, <em>regardless</em> of gender.  It has nothing to do with “sexism” or “misogyny”, as much as the fact that being a woman (as designated at birth, or otherwise) is <em>not</em> an excuse for facing the consequences of one’s actions, nor an excuse to avoid VALIDATING ONE’S CLAIMS.  And, as a woman, I’m frankly not at all happy about people having to BE more wary of women these days, simply because some women have decided to abuse the term of “feminism” as a vehicle through which to demand unnecessary changes on the grounds of little more than glorified fear mongering and propaganda.<br/><br/></li> <li><strong>As cruel as this may sound, you have <em>zero</em> jurisdiction over what other people are “allowed” to joke or talk about. </strong> Yes, you can tell someone to stop, but <em>that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen</em>.  One of these days, you’re going to have to learn to ignore things that bother you, or simply remove yourself from that situation, because <strong>real life does not have an “ignore” feature</strong>.  The best thing you can do for yourself is to just get up, and walk away.  You leave what is bothering you behind you, and hopefully, that may also get the message across that you don’t wish to hear what they’re saying.<br/><br/>If we tried to sanitize the world of everything that someone, somewhere, deemed “offensive”, or anything that made them “uncomfortable”, there would likely be no world left to live in.  There are even people in this world genuinely afraid of the depth marker lines painted on the bottom of swimming pools.  I get weirded out if I have to drink out of a clear glass with images on the outside that can be seen from the inside, even though I’m fully aware of how incredibly <em>stupid</em> that is (perhaps megalohydrothalassophobia is partly to blame).   I’m incredibly uncomfortable around large dogs, but you don’t see me going around screaming at dog owners to put their pets to sleep, nor demanding that printed drinking glasses should no longer be manufactured.  <strong>What happened to you is a travesty that cannot be undone, but you must understand that you share this earth with over 7 billion other human beings, and they are all different than you.</strong>  This includes people that use humor as a coping mechanism, in order to alleviate the fear they have.  If you can joke about something, you strip it of the power to control you, and determine how you live your life.</li> </ol><p>Bad things happen, and they often happen to good people.  Hell, my older sister literally exists BECAUSE of rape.  However, we simply cannot be trying to determine how other human beings are able to express themselves.  Hurt feelings are not justification for such censorship.  <strong>Our rights do NOT end where your feelings begin.</strong>  <strong>Constitutional rights exist BECAUSE of feelings.  Rights exist in order to keep feelings from interfering with life, liberty, and LAW.</strong></p> <p><strong>When we see people say things such as “Your rights end where my feelings begin”, it is the first step towards going back to a time where people could be put to death simply because their neighbor accused them of witchcraft.</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>What’s the betting that whenever she hears people on SVU/CSI type programmes try to bully suspects into confessing or gloat at those found guilty by teasing them about their future cell-mate “Bubba” and tell him to keep his back to the wall, don’t drop the soap etc she either laughs or doesn’t even notice? Because the brutal rapes of men that account for more than half the victims, are so accepted, genuinely encouraged, and ignored by the prison system that practically no but the victims would be sensitive to it. Worst of all, those in for petty/victimless crimes (such as smoking a joint for pain relief) and the falsely accused make up a disproportionate number of victims since they’d be the least prepared for a violent environment, so it’s likely they did nothing that anyone could use to justify their trauma.</p> <p>Are people just supposed to know when someone’s interested? Or is she advocating that only women be allowed to make the first move? Given where the feminist lobby is going, they’ll only be the only ones allowed to make any moves at all, basically the equivalent of legally requiring men do the starfish. And if no one is allowed to ask anyone out for fear of “triggering” them and silent cues are rape, how the hell are relationships supposed to work?</p> <p>It makes sense to want to know why something is supposedly offensive or wrong, that way they can correct it, classic human behaviour to learn and adapt. If they can’t even be arsed telling people why they should stop, they’ll have no reason to and so, unless they are prepared to stop doing doing everything that someone says they don’t like up to and including breathing, will continue doing it. I can extrapolate from this that they don’t want it to stop.</p> <p>My sister and I both exist because of rape as well, mother had a thing for unconscious men and used people’s apathy towards male victims to brag about it without censure.</p></blockquote>
