@Lightenup I logged in specially to tell you you're an asshole.
@Paul West Douchebag.
@anon8015 You're not communicating very well. Your intentions are irrelevant in this case. You don't make people stop raping by telling the victim's to shut up and deal with it the way YOU think they should. That's unbelievable condescending and disrespectful. You think sexuality is broken? Or is it working exactly as it should when patriarchal mores and values permeate our culture? Look up the "Don't be That Guy" ad campaign if you want to help disseminate a strategy that might actually reduce cases where men rape women. Policing how others deal with their trauma is seriously assholish. Which I hope you're got by now.
@Magic Mike Hey look, a soulless maggot who will die alone. Cheers!
@Comment Deleted. You are a cyst on the ass of humanity. Your ignorance is astounding. "Something" tells you? Oh, well then, by all means, police the internet scolding people for their responses to similar trauma! You fucking asshole.
@Matthew David Wilder@facebook And you're a terrible person, so it all works out.
@Positive Mojo Oh honestly. Do you think for one second anyone here is denying that women rape men? It happens. It happens on the order about 15 to 1, but it happens. It is devastating. It is wrong. But no, not everything about rape on the internet needs to immediately be scolded because men get raped too. You MRA douchebags need to go back to skulking on youtube and okcupid.
@Rellikdog Time for you to fuck off from the Awl comment section and never return. What - did some shitty "Men's Rights Activist" site send an alert out, or what? Ugh. Go hang out at A Voice for Men.
@Choire Sicha <3 you Choire
@anon1580 I'll be less nice than everyone else and ask you - are you fucking high? What kind of peace and love hazy bullshit paradise do you live in that you DARE come and criticize a poem - A POEM - for not doing everything you think it should do? Where's your fucking poem?
Instead of trolling people on The Awl, which, thank god, which don't usually get so many anons and twitter users and what have you - why don't YOU go and make up some positive bullshit about how getting raped turned into a really neat experience because you had an epiphany, or whatever other absolute bullshit you think you have the right to criticize others for not doing. Unbelievable. Actually unbelievable that someone could read this piece and have the utter nerve and total lack of human empathy or even a common understanding of WHAT FUCKING POETRY IS and how rape survivors don't have to spend their lives recovering in the way you think necessary.
Inconclusion, Jesus fucking Christ, you're an asshole.
