I keep seeing these videos going around telling people “Let’s show you what consent is like to put a stop to rape” and then like…some dumb video of someone force feeding another person a burrito. It’s not usually even video of real people but stick figures…
Taking away the fact that rape happens to real people. Real men, Real Women, Real children.
Real. Human. People.
Real pain. Real tears. Real scars.
And rape isn’t a burrito being force fed…it’s ugly, cruel, hurtful, painful, sometimes it’s a bloody nasty fucking mess.
Rape is ugly and should not be made easier for us to watch to learn and understand.
Rape isn’t a video that can be comfortably watched. If you can comfortably watch a rape video you are a sick person. If the video doesn’t make you uncomfortable you are a sick person. If rape doesn’t make you uncomfortable then you might be a rapist. If you have to be taught about consent then you might be a rapist. If you don’t understand what consent is and have to be explained what consent is then you might be a rapist. If you are not sure of consent and do it anyway then you might be a rapist.
Rape isn’t a funny cartoon.
Rape is like the rape scene of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Rape destroys lives.
Rape causes peoples souls to be crushed and even take their own lives.
Rape is not as easy to watch or amusing to watch or entertaining to watch as stick figures and burritos.
Rape is ugly.
Learn it and don’t do it.
Learn it and don’t let rapists out on the streets.
Learn it and don’t be a judge who thinks that rape is ok.
Learn it and don’t be a parent who thinks it is ok.
Learn it and don’t be the human piece of scum that thinks rape is ok.
Is a real scene of what real rape looks like too ugly for you watch?
Then don’t allow it. Don’t make it lesser than what it is. Don’t lesson the victims hurt by making it a bearable video about rape.
Rape isn’t bearable.
