Whoa man, it took me a minute to even figure out what this was a response to. I’m assuming you’re reacting to the Jamie Kilstein quote I reblogged?
(For anyone else reading this who didn’t see that, it was basically that rape jokes aren’t funny.)
I’ll start on a pleasant note. You do bring up an important issue; males are also physically and sexually abused, and it is a problem that should be addressed.
However, bringing up an example of an audience laughing at male rape doesn’t prove anything, since they laugh just as hard at female rape.
But here’s where I’m going to get angry with you. The fact that men are also abused does not mean we should write off half of the population. It does not make the backlash against rape jokes hypocritical. What that means is that the issues addressed should be expanded to include everyone who is abused, not just but still including women.
You brought up this valid issue in order to call outrage against rape jokes hypocritical. You don’t actually want to talk about men’s issues, you want people to shut up about women because “men have it just as bad.” If you give a single shit about anyone who has suffered abuse, regardless of gender, you should actually fucking do something about it, instead of using the issue to try to shut other people up.
You took an important point about equality and used it to support the status quo. Get off my blog.
