1. Hide thread function is your friend here.

 

Just get rid of them. There's nothing to be embarrassed about.

They speak with loud voices, but they are clearly outnumbered.

12. TMI

Were you whining like this when the board was littered rape topics all the time when it was the GOP being decimated over the topic?

Or is it only a problem for you now that the issue is society in general?

(Rhetorical questions, of course.)

18. I'm male. I don't feel bashed.

This is one goddamn important topic, contrasted to the flippant way you just dismissed it.

Don't worry though. Mark your calendar. http://www.nsvrc.org/saam/current-campaign
You can just click 'ignore' till then, if an issue that impacts upwards of a quarter million women every year bothers you.

29. What affects a quarter million women a year

affects all women. And it really affects all men too, but most will never get that point.

Violence done to women is not considered a worthy topic. What else is new.

23. I haven't seen the male bashing...

I have seen people responding with a "oh, hell no!" to being told to shut up about the whole rape thing already. I also really don't think your manhood (in any of the ways that can be interpreted) was the issue.

30. What man bashing?

I have only seen rapist bashing.

The terms are not being used interchangably here.

Despite repeated assertions to the contrary, I have seen no one here say "all men are rapists". That connection is happening in your head and that isn't DU's fault.

How do they not realize how transparent and absurd this crap is?

Unbelievable. Though I should hardly be surprised. They really just ought to come right out and say "Stop talking about something I don't give a shit about and that an issue for me personally - it's messing up my entitlement!!!!" Because that's exactly what it is.

34. What is with all the defensiveness?

What "man-bashing"? All I see is rapist-bashing. Does that hurt your feelings?

And what do you mean, "it didn't used to be this way"? You mean, back when you had your first DU handle and go banned, or what?

35. Then get angry at the men committing the crime.

They are the ones damaging the reputation of men.

The subject is on a political website because rape is a crime of power, the strong imposing themselves on the vulnerable.

36. Actually, as a rape survivor myself

I'd like to see a bit less of this topic too. I've pretty much gone on with my life, except for the occasional PTSD episode ( a couple per week). Reading thread upon thread about it, doesn't really help.

Yes, we all know that rape is bad; and that all rape is rape, and there is really no such thing as illegitimate rape. And no; I don't blame all men for it. Rape is not a sexual crime; it's a crime of anger and exerting control using sex as the weapon....along with some pretty lethal stuff too usually.

So there you have it folks.
All done for a couple of months for now.

OK?

There is a group at DU with a similar affliction and I heard they even have free Porn.

It makes you uncomfortable to talk about? You should be thankful that that is the most prevalent feeling the topic bring up in you.
