I need feminism because people tell me I should be thankful that my rapist wanted to have sex with me.

Imgur is beginning to get more political.

The Imgur OP (original poster) is not the woman in the image; the OP shared it so every victim of rape would know that there is always someone out there to support them.

No one should ever have to hear that. No one.

 I wrote a personal post election day on why I never confuse rape with sex, and why you shouldn't either http://nothing-new.com/?p=209

Rape is an act of violence with a portable weapon. and just because that weapon can be used for love or to get children, at the moment it is only a weapon. When a person is beaten to death with a rolling-pin, no one thinks it’s an act of baking gone wrong.

Your blog post is spot on. Rape is a horrible way to terrorize a person. 

I realize I will probably get flamed for this, but it is food for thought. Under Florida's "Stand your Ground", if she had "disarmed" her attacker, do you think that should qualify for "Stand your Ground" protections. I think it should.

Robert, I think it should, too.

"Stand Your Ground" was passed to give people some rights to defend themselves.

Where the law finds its controversy is that line between self-defense and preemptive aggression.
