Sorry all, I’m running a little heavy at work lately so I’m going to have to toss y’all a snippet. A little over a year ago a news article came out about how people reacted to the Navy facebook page reposting this image from TumblinFeminist:
Go alllllll the way back to see such gems like:
“Not really amusing coming from the Navy. I can see some of my more uncouth friends posting something like this, but the Navy? Have some sense!”
“If this is supposed to be funny, it’s not….and it reflects badly on the Navy for posting it. Certainly gives the impression that they don’t take the problem seriously. If it’s not supposed to be funny, then it’s just plain stupid.”
“That’s Embarrassing. Is this really how our Sailors are though of? As stupid little 4 year olds??? Really????”
Well nothing else is working, what the hell do you suggest?
The folks who were against the image saw it as the Navy making light of sexual assault victims. I see it as making fun of the assaulter, who obviously can’t tell what is rape. The more I talk to the people around me and the more I read about assault, the more I realize that a lot of the men who commit these atrocities don’t believe that whatever they are doing is wrong. They think that since they’ve had sex with a woman before consensually, that it’s ok to do it again even if they’re drunk. They think that if a woman enters a hotel room with a man, they are entitled to have sex with them!
