I'm not really sure what your point is, or what you were even watching.

Why shouldn't girls be taught to defend themselves? I agree, people just shouldn't rape people. But would you neglect learning self defense just because murderers and kidnappers just "shouldn't commit crimes"? It's all well and good to say that you shouldn't have to go out of your way to avoid becoming victim of someone else's wrongdoing, but it's simply impractical. Maybe it's wrong, but ...

You have better things to do than eloquently explain your agenda to open-minded individuals? Like what? Occupy Tumblr with people who don't challenge you? Psychology and a basic understanding of how an oppressed group of people gain equality with those in power should speak for themselves; you're ignoring that. You seem to think it's possible for women to gain power without taking some away f ...

I know it's just you, personally. There are plenty of people who would be completely destroyed by what you've endured, and there might even be others who could endure it faster, but that's neither here nor there. The point is, you're a living example of someone who could endure hardships and move on, as much as one can, which is totally different from wallowing. This should be the goal of eve ...

"I can tell you from experience that you have no idea how rape feels, but I can also think that it's a million-bajillion times worse than dying, even though I'm alive, I just know." Asinine, much? Why do so many people feel that way? Is it a matter of pride or dignity that people feel like rape is the worst thing that could ever happen to a person? I'm actually curious, if you or anyone e ...

A person who gets raped is still responsible for their own well-being after the fact. You don't become exempt from that, ever. Calling that victim blaming is a bit of a stretch. you can't just "get over" being raped. how you feel about the fact that you were raped is not a choice you can make. Why should I simply take your word for it? Can you provide some evidence that states how it's as ...

Anime can be creepy, but it isn't inherently creepy. Moreso than creepy, I find it unbearably cliché. That's why I read manga, instead. A lot more variety. Though, I will say Berserk is probably the best anime I've ever watched. I liked YYH a lot too, but that might just be nostalgia.

It's this line of thinking, that has helped me get over not only being sexually assaulted, but it has helped me deal with other negativity in my life. The way I choose to look at it, by making those negative experiences into a joke, I'm reminding myself that I've survived it, moved past it, and it won't stop me from living my life. I wonder, then, if many who make rape jokes, do it for poss ...

I've dealt with a lot of emotional trauma in my life, aside from rape. I'm a pragmatic guy. It's not difficult to presume I'd deal with rape in a pragmatic manner. Some people fall apart from trauma, but others get stronger. So far in life, I've been the latter. You can't refute that, you don't know me well enough. And remember, my original post was an educated guess on myself, not an assertion. ...

It's actually not relevant, because you're using the rape topic to illustrate a point about free will, rather than the other way around. This is evident in the way you shifted the topic in your post from "rape" to "free will". Are you implying it's impossible for me, in the hypothetical scenario of being a rape victim, to simply not be bothered by it because holding onto self-imposed shame that ...

More a matter of pragmatism than free will. But you should probably keep your free will arguments in your thread since.. It's kind of irrelevant here. :P

If I was raped, I think I'd choose to get over it instead of wallowing in self-pity and loathing. You generally have little control over whether you're raped or not. Whether you choose to be an emotional wreck about it for the rest of your life is up to you. Just like if a loved one suddenly dies in your life, you choose whether to wallow in misery or do the healthy thing, deal with it an m ...
