While reading my Google Reader I came across a post on Feministing…I like Feministing as every now and again they list new articles regarding feminism and civil rights gay/lesbian/bi/trans news etc. etc.
On said post I saw it took you to the Huffington Post about the repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell…while the clip it showed was funny, one of the comments nearly had me falling out of my chair…partly out of the humor of it…and partly of the sadness of it truth of it:
. it’s the buttsecks that bothers them. For reals. They don’t mind ra.ping women. That’s all good and right, or at least, it’s no big deal. But let them think for ONE SECOND that some dude might say their no meant yes, and they lose their minds. What’s weird is how they act like they aren’t aware that these same dudes they’re so scared of have already been there serving with them all this time. Staring at them. While they slept. While they showered. While they huddled in the freezing cold struggling to fight the arousal! ZOMG!
Yes, I found it humorous…but I did find it sad. It because it is true. It is ok to rape women, because after all we are lesser. But…if for one second a man thinks that another man might take the same liberties all hell breaks lose. It’s the old “I can do it to you but no one can do it to me” mentality.
Cruise on over, watch the clip and read the comments. It’s worth it.
