I have no words for this bullshit. Sexual Assault and Rape are not gender specific experiences.
Except males can’t be raped. sorry.
Yes, it’s horrible what happened to him, but this is more ableism than anything.
But don’t you dare equate the rape of women to sexual assault of males. They are not the same thing. Let me say that again:
They are not the same thing.
Let me get this straight.
An autistic child is kidnapped, threatened, and assaulted for an hour, and your priority is to make sure that we know it “wasn’t rape” because this child has a penis instead of a vagina?
Go fuck yourself. Rape is fucking rape. This could have been my brother. This could have been someone close to you. Don’t come on here trying to make a tragic situation seem less so because you’re so goddamn intent on making sure women win the oppression olympics. As a rape survivor with an autistic brother, I can’t begin to tell you how disgusting you are.
See you in hell, you sick piece of shit.
Bless you, oppressocrunch <3
In as much as this was a terrible thing to happen to anyone of any gender or ability, I am still bothered by it being used as MRA fodder in their attempts to undermine equality and anti-misogyny efforts.
Using an attack on a child to try to vilify women is cheap and offensive.
Well, that’s the Misogynist Rights Activists for you! I know this is an old thread, but I’m just about to make a post about how Misogynist Rights Activists are so fond of twisting words around in order to vilify feminists.
Earlier in the thread, I had pointed out that there was a different power structure in effect - that being a case of neurotypicalism/ableism. But, instead, these asstwits were so hellbent on twisting my words around that trying to claim that I said “he had it coming because he’s autistic” - when that was not at all what I said.
Also, it really doesn’t help that little-missandry later on showed up making bullshit claims that men cannot be raped - when, in fact, they can. And here’s the kicker! They is not even a genuine feminist. Rather, they is a troll blog dedicated entirely to discrediting feminism. But… these Misogynist Rights Activists ate it right up!
I’ll explain more in a separate post.
