Gentlemen. This is what rape culture is like:
Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged?
And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant assholes who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When damn, all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. When you complain that you are starting to feel unsafe, people laugh you off and say that you are too uptight. Never mind you got violently attacked for the crime of wearing a friggin time piece.
Imagining all that? It sucks, doesn’t it.
Now imagine you could never take the Rolex off.
“Your hair is red. That’s my second favourite colour.”
“What’s your first favourite colour?”
“Is that technically a colour though?”
“It is if I say so. I control words, they don’t control me. Now I imagine you want to touch my muscles. You may want to use both hands, they’re quite large.”
Would you rather hear “you’re really cute” or “you’re really good looking”
I usually prefer “I brought donuts” but that’s just me.
"I want to buy you pizza"
"I got you coffee"
"I got you an AR-15"
"They repealed the NFA"
"Let’s go mudding."
I don’t have the prettiest eyes or sharpest cheekbones. My smile is pristine and it doesn’t light up any rooms. My arms aren’t perfectly toned. My hair doesn’t always look done. I’m not always put together. I am not the most beautiful person you’ll see on any given day, but I love you for anything and everything you are. Every flaw that you see in yourself is another equally important reason that I adore you. And I do adore you.
