Submission: I follow a few different activist blogs regarding feminism, ableism and sexwork. As always people troll these blogs and the people or person running don’t put up with it. And then a follower will say no one should be mean to trolls and that they just need to be educated on the topic.Thank you.
No. Some people PICK to be ignorant about respecting the rights of other people. At a certain point there needs to be accountability NOT education. I wish more people would address this rude behavior.
At what point do we realize, this person is not going to understand because they do not want to. We’re all people, it’s not that hard to be respectful, and if you don’t give it, you shouldn’t get the respect of being educated.
Before anyone complains that he’s “just joking” and saying he is a potential rapist is too harsh… If people don’t want to be labeled a potential rapist, it’s quite simple: don’t say rapey shit that makes you sound like a potential rapist.
Codi Kissell is a potential rapist.
He has the right to make this “joke”, just as we have the right to label him a potential rapist as a result. It goes both ways.
Submission: I can’t.
Rape jokes are not jokes. Woman-hating jokes are not jokes. These guys are telling you what they think. When you laugh along to get their approval, you give them yours. You tell them that the social license to operate is in force; that you’ll go along with the pact to turn your eyes away from the evidence; to make excuses for them; to assume it’s a mistake, of the first time, or a confusing situation. You’re telling them that they’re at low risk.
Trigger warning (I can’t put a read more!)
No longer accepting any of this shit on my dashboard.
Apparently, this was the result of someone ‘hacking’ this guys facebook.
Conversation went as follows:
Me:Are you fucking kidding me with the rape jokes? You should no better, it’s fucking disgusting.
Him:sorry, i was frapped
Me:Well, delete it then.
And fucking punch whoever wrote it.
Him: I just did, I’m really sorry
Him: I won’t say as he’s gonna get enough abuse as it is, I’ve kicked them out now.
Me:Well, I hope it isn’t anyone I know.
Also, why does someone who thinks that’s funny deserve anonymity?
“I’m really sorry about the minimization of rape…
Fucked on so many levels.

Submission: How other women find this cute is beyond me
Submission: I don’t like homophobia or heterosexism at all, but when did solidarity with equality for same-sex couples become a battle ground and opportunity to unleash that traditional white het male misogyny? It hasn’t.
I found this on a FB page, Working class atheists, which also links to his public profile when you click on the picture.
*the comments are also rather vile.
Submission: Totally deleted from facebook, goodbye sexist facebook dude!
