Merry Christmas champs! I gave a lot rather than received this time around, it's been a fun holiday season as I'm a big fan of gift giving.

shouldn't have checked this before bed lol.

Sorry I wasn't trying to attack E with that line. I deal with a lot of MRAs in real life who will cite bullshit to defend some of the more extreme positions that some MRAs take on(if you're looking for some of the worse ones take a look at A Voice for Men, or see We hunted the Mammoth for responses to people like A Voice for Men). So I took his analogy as a serious point at first and that was my attempt at an apology.

Bad word usage on my end, my sincere apologies.

I'm not trying to stir up shit. I was simply posting what I believe.

I rarely come by here and its certainly not for forum arguments. Sexual assault is an important topic for me which is why I bothered to engage for this long.

idgi, are you seriously asking for sources for a metaphor?

Only asked as I thought you were implying those things happened and were serious about it. It's hard to tell with MRAs.

All I was saying is that there are certainly many who've contributed loads who do both - who often get dumped on as being whiny crybabies who only post on social media, when in reality they do more but it isn't seen.


Of course it doesn't degrade anyone, it's just, you know, a fucking lie.

Why don't you tell Sabrina Rubin Erdely I said hi?


just because one person lied about an issue doesn't mean said issue is all bullshit just look at the statistics.

]Sure, that's a fact of biology, but then there's a layer of social constructs and behaviors, and the "rape culture" isn't as big as that. It needs to be pointed out and fought when it happens, but rape culture itself isn't natural, it's still a crime, and it's recognized as such in society.

Don't disagree except in that even though sexual assault is still a crime there are many times where society attempts to justify such acts, for example defending a rapist because both parties were drunk. I don't mind the rest of what you said.

fair points, I might've misunderstood what Rajaa was getting at, but I do think rape culture is a systemic problem that is reinforced by society, through social attitudes. To be clear I'm not trying to say every man is a rapist and must be so because of society, but I think the problem is bigger than just some circles, there's a predisposition for men to be prone to committing sexual violence. 


Its cute you would try to conflate people crying online about this bullshit with actual activists, as if anyone that ever took part in one of those were actually fighting for anything.
they arent.

Having been involved in this for the last few years doing actual work, I can tell you that the circles of people who are "actual activists" and those who are "crying online" are not mutually exclusive.

Just because someone isn't famous and popular like Emma Watson doesn't mean they aren't doing real work. I don't mind your criticisms of social media slacktivists but am concerned you might not see the difference between people who post on social media for brownie points and people who do work WHO ALSO post on social media.


let's say the govt. offers help to poor people, and the feminists activist start crying and whinning so said government help is only given to poor people of the female gender and all help taht was given to poor people of the male gender is not being given anymore (or the example I said earlier about the police not prosecuting rape agains males because it somehow makes rape against females harder to prosecute).

Can you provide some links because I've never heard of this happening ever.

Why don't you all use your manly voices and talk about the issues that are important to you instead of vomiting all over those "feminazi sissies" that are so busy only fighting against rape and not doing all the undefined amazing things they should be doing?


There's a full article that I unfortunately didn't quote, I only picked two quotes to show the article was talking about a lot of things no one was addressing, and that their analysis(which btw, I disagree with, I thought the show did an okay job handling the rape scene and that it did build character for Sansa, and grew her arc)

Rape culture is in the West, but that was an unrelated point to Game of Thrones. . It's okay to admit that Rape Culture exists and is in the West, it doesn't degrade any area to say that it is an issue, though I was talking more about North America than Europe, sorry for not being completely clear. I've studied primarily about North America on the topic and not Europe on the issue. 

I also generally disagree that people only talk about Rape as a triggering experience or generally just talk about Rape. Obviously people who are are connected to those issues are going to focus on working on that issue. There are tons of organizations out there condemning racism, murder, theft, and other crimes as well that also get press and do good work.
-


So they become whiny babies every time media is produced that does not cater specifically to their political whinybaby needs and gloat and dance around the media that does. Isolating each other further and further until the only difference of opinion they can stand is how much those outside of their group are trash and how bad they should be injured or threatened.

Yeah I think you're wrong on that one mate, most people who are pushing their issues are doing it effectively and getting shit done. In Canada the people you would call "whiny babies" were able to get the government to push for a provincial strategy on sexual assault, rather than isolate, these people are (mostly) reaching out and engaging people in as many ways as possible.

But none of them get any press, no people focus on the ones they can ostracize because it's easier.

I think a lot of you have fully under appreciated what the site is saying and the other criticism that's coming to the show about this and some of the other choices made by the writers.

What's most interesting is that while, yes a lot of criticism out there from individuals is about the rape scene specifically, Mary Sue's critique is far more subtle and based not only on the pointless rape scene(s) that was thrown in for no reason, but also from the sense of the narrative, good storytelling as well as a comparison the source material, something every comment has ignored. You all also ignore that they critiqued the last rape scene, that changed a consensual sex scene from the books to a rape scene, but continued to support the show at the time.

Here's two great quotes that show a bit of what I'm talking about from the article:
Quote
Using rape as the impetus for character motivations is one of the most problematic tropes in fiction. Rarely is it ever afforded the careful consideration it deserves. Was there more gravity given to the act on Game of Thrones than in the past on the series? I would say yes; however, it took Sansa from her growing place of power, cut her off at the knees, and put the focus on Theon’s ordeal, instead.
...
There’s only so many times you can be disgusted with something you love before you literally can’t bring yourself to look at it anymore. That is where I currently find myself in relation to Game of Thrones. The staff of The Mary Sue feels the same. You may feel differently.

Why do people so badly want their to be some sort of global rape culture in the west?

Because there is rape culture in the West

And these retards forget one thing. While show is set in fantasy genre and in fictional world, Martin (author of the book series) portraits middle age society quite accurately.


Both the rape scenes in the show that have been critiqued the most(and there might be more I haven't followed the discussions too much) didn't actually occur in the books, which is why there's so much more criticism on the episodes not only from feminists but also general fans who might not have a problem with rape being in the show in and of itself but have a problem with it being used the way its being used.

^he was a guy who wrote a manifesto about how DA MUSLIMS are taking over Europe and how Christendom must rise up lol. Here's his wikipedia article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anders_Behring_Breivik

The terms extremist and terrorist are used in a certain political context in the West and I think its important to take it back to an extent, anyone who commits acts of terror should be labelled as a terrorist. My apologies if I'm misinterpreting your point, I also wasn't actually insulted by your use of the term muslim extremist that was my bad attempt at being sarcastic.

The family of the victims raised the issue that this guy had been harassing his victims prior to this supposedly random attack, while I am putting two and two together I don't think its that big of a stretch to make.

I referred to it as an execution based on how the guy executed his victims.

I think you're missing the point I'm trying to make. My issue is with how sensationalized this affair is and the comparison to Charlie Hebdo rubs me the wrong way. It's not like the guy traveled countries over, kicked a door open and gunned down the defenseless students while chanting "CHARLES DARWIN, MOTHERFUCKERS!"

Was the guy who shot Treyvon Martin a terrorist too? No, he was a racist asshat.

The headline "Atheist Terrorist murders students" insults me personally.

Your use of "Islamic Extremist" insults me personally. Whether this guy comically shouted Charles Darwin matters little when he did come into these people's homes and murder them in cold blood, execution style. That is every bit as disturbing as the Charlie Hebdo shooting and should be covered, and that is NOT sensationalism, keeping in mind that we haven't had a peace march of hypocritical world leaders in Chapel Hill yet.

I'm not slamming anyone in the topic but who the HELL would compare this to Charlie Hebdo? I find the very notion of that concept sickening to my very core. The attack at Charlie Hebdo was a planned orchestrated act of execution by Islamist Extremists to effectively silence something they found "offensive".


The attack at Chapel Hill was a planned orchestrated act of execution by an Anti-theist racist extremist, why does the reason mean more to you?

In addition many have pointed out that the two extremists in the Charlie Hebdo case were probably at least partially motivated by the racist colonial attitudes of France in regards to Algeria.

The other issue that a lot of people care about in comparing these two issues is that there is a sense that people don't care if someone dies who belongs to a marginalized group, and that "white" life is more important than other life. People who have faced death threats in countries like America because who they are definitely are going to be passionate about this, because it's not just "some racist/bigot/dumbass", and it is a relatively coordinated attack on Muslims. It's the same reason why so many have been working on issues related to police violence against black youth.

college educated kids are an oppresed group now?

Aside from student debt, barriers to access, and a variety of other issues, students in college who face racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or other forms of discrimination would certainly be considered parts of oppressed groups. Of course, not all college students are oppressed.

@MissB please do they're always close to the border!!!

In this case there's certainly evidence that this individual has a prior history of a) harassing the victims and b) specifically threatening them because of their religion.

^that's pretty interesting. I think a key issue is this type of thing is not only happening more frequently but its happening to more and more oppressed groups(not just religious, racialized, sexual or gender-based). I remember in 2011 some of the work done in my city was around the annual Trans* day of remembrance, which continues to receive no press or recognition in main stream media. It's important for oppressed groups to work against their oppressors in particular in nations where there is no direct suppression of dissent.

I agree with Iced that the guy is probably also a racist.
