Is everybody who minimizes rape a potential insensitive jerk?

I know this will be locked in a moment, but somebody had to ask.

1. No, it's those weaklings who don't trivialize it who are the problem. They're too sensitive.

I learned that on DU.

15. Will you please stop screaming at rape survivors.

Can't you be reasonable? If you were more stable, you might be invited to host a new group where all these rape threads can be sequestered so that they don't embarrass the rest of DU.

21. Are you disappointed that we have not all been simply dismissed as dykes?

Or did I miss it? Perhaps they need to review their notes from 1970.

Did I spell it right?

I've seen lots and lots of posts and OPs from men who are 100% allies of women's rights here on DU, and I appreciate it. Thanks, guys.

This OP isn't calculated for a serious discussion, imo.

Are you potentially spoiling for a fight?

What purpose, this thread, and what purpose the rolling eyes?

PS--That's a "yes," and it's not potential.
