I haven’t for over half a year, now. In fact, I’ve been 100% single this whole time.
I wasn’t going to say anything - because it was private, and I was in a great deal of pain, and I didn’t want to make a big deal out of it - but now I’ve come to the point where I’m getting pretty annoyed by people saying ‘your husband is so lucky’.
In fact, even when married, I was miffed by that phrase. Whenever the line has been delivered to me, it’s been in conjunction with ‘a woman that’s beautiful/intelligent/into gaming/into comics is so rare, your husband is so lucky’. This intended compliment not only glorifies me (ick), but alludes that these characteristics can only be appreciated by my significant other. Hey, you can appreciate my being a fan of comics and gaming, and my smarts, and my looks without being married to me. The only things my husband ever had that I don’t offer everyone else was sex and unwavering devotion. So it leads me to believe that when I’m given this ‘compliment’, it’s just masquerading as wishing you could have sex with me, which I don’t perceive as a compliment. At all.
Clearly a relationship is based on more than just comics, games, beauty, and smarts. Please stop simplifying me and the basis of marriage/a relationship.
Men, please stop saying someone’s husband/boyfriend is ‘so lucky’, and start appreciating the traits of a woman as a friend would.
Trigger warning for any of my followers. Just scroll away if you have to.
Because murder has no immediate survivors who have to suffer through the experience of being brutalized and rape survivors do? Because there is a HUGE culture around rape and how the victim somehow led to their rape, but nobody really accuses a murder victim of being sooo easy to kill or that they were asking for it. Because it’s used so dismissively. Because there’s more evidence of a murder, but most rape goes unreported.
Like, seriously Anon? And you must be seriously cowardly and expecting some backlash since you are on Anonymous.
Also, that rape scene you spoke of? Just another attempt for Millar to be OMG SO EDGY LOOK
RED MISTMOTHER FUCKER JUST RAPED A GIRL.
No. It’s not edgy. It’s not dark. This happens too frequently.
