“I’m on the ‘Rape culture is a thing, but people tend to overexaggerate it’ team and like… Fiction doesn’t encourage rape? Normalization is top-down, and it’s more reinforced by cultural gender roles than anything? Anon needs to stop drinking the Kool-Aid?”

kmclaude:

“Bingo. Useful term that’s been taken out back, fucked up the ass, and bastardized to hell and back. Like most social justice.”

Constantly portraying rape as desirable, romantic, sexy, etc. absolutely can normalize it. Also, I find it interesting that you downplay rape culture when you:

  • Reblogged a post blaming minors for their sexual trauma.
  • Equated being asked to stop romanticizing rape with being banned from ever discussing it, indicating that you believe romanticizing rape is an integral part of depicting it.
