On this website I see alot of complaints about so-called ‘straight allies’
But you wanna know who’s worse?
People who claim to be ‘allies’ to rape victims.
I was raped regularly from the time I was 5 until I was almost 9, and since I’ve joined Tumblr I’ve been called a:
- Victim blamer
- Rape apologist
- Misogynist (btw, we all know men can be raped too)
- "not a real victim"
- "someone who deserved to be raped"
And ALL by people who publicly admitted they had never been raped, but they were “feminists” fighting against “rape culture”
And all of the issues I got called these names for were issues which not only I believed in, but ones I’d talked to my fellow victims about and which we all agreed on.
But no, no, people on tumblr, and even in real life, who think they’re fighting for some righteous cause have sent me hate mail, told me to kill myself, and accused me of being at the side of my rapist, or for having no sympathy towards victims.
I’ve had users on here tell me that “sending nudes unsolicited is rape” Excuse me. EXCUSE ME? If I write an autobiography am I going to have to specify that I was “raped as in penetration” and not “raped as in I saw someone naked on the internet”? Thanks for trivializing the pain I and millions of other men and women have experienced. Thanks for taking the years of healing and trauma we go through and putting it on the same level as NSFW pictures which won’t haunt someone for the rest of their life. Thanks for deciding that YOU know what’s right for us, and speaking over us. And thanks especially for trying to further damage the very people you supposedly want to help, and attacking us for speaking our own opinions.
Fuck you to every single goddamn one of you who attacks the very same victims you’re supposedly vying for. You don’t give a shit about rape. You only fucking care about looking good by putting other people down.
