[Serious] PSA: Rape Apologetics
#1
PSA: Rape Apologetics
As many of you know by now, Drich has been permanently and forevermore banned. The tipping point was when he tried to portray Bill Cosby’s history of serial rape as business as usual.

Going forward, rape apologetics will be an actionable offense on these Forums and will not be tolerated. It will be considered and punished as trolling (under the ‘Making provocative posts’ clause). Rape apologetics will consist of but not be limited to:

-Condoning sexual assault.

-Downplaying sexual assault.

-Blaming the victims of sexual assault.

One less of those to worry about on AF, now.

RE: PSA: Rape Apologetics
Well, I didn't catch Drich's "illuminating" post, but it seems to me, it should be okay to portray rape as "business as usual."

I think it *is* business as usual in many ways... has been for centuries... and I'm outraged at this state of affairs. It should be okay to state the facts of the matter.

I'm assuming that Drich condoned, downplayed, or blamed the victims. But maybe Drich isn't the originator of the idea that such things are okay. I fault the Bible. After all, insufficient regard is afforded victims of rape in the OT. "You owe my dad silver pieces. And I may be forced to marry you." That's pretty much all it says on the matter.

It was mostly downplaying the severity of what he did, conflating partying and playing the field with drugging and raping women. In fairness, I’m not convinced that he knows the difference. You’d think someone sane would have some ide of what the difference is, but given that many evangelicals see the world like this:

I read some of his rantings and I loved how he use the whole rape in Hollywood is "business as usual" as a jumping point to spew his rape apologist nonesense. He doesn't get that, no matter what gender you are, you'd be rape in show business and that shouldn't be "business as usual" yet it is and it's wrong.

Hell I'm into consensual non consent gay porn and even I don't like actual rape becuase it hurts someone and becuase of the millions of male rape victims that are, for the most part, not taken seriously. I have this thing called empathy, which is something he clearly lacks.

Watch that them classification, unless it’s the other them those folks are assholes. Might want to expand and clarify topics of rape apologetics. Probably shouldn’t allow discussions of rape scenes on movies as well.
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post

^ What more is there to clarify? I think op was very clear. Also talking about rape as well as rape scenes in a work of fiction is not the same as making excuses for someone who actually raped someone.

Did you read Drich's posts?
