happiness is not a potato

“I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party,…

Wait wait um… telling someone to try Thai food is rape now?

Never persuade anyone to do anything, because persuasion is coercion, and it’s better to spend your entire life watching the same movie over and over again while eating nothing but chicken nuggets than it is to suffer even one “C’mon, you’ll like it.”

Gales’s possible overthinking point made me think of how the manchild is often a “picky eater” (read: nothing but Taco Bell and pizza) and the girlfriend is often trying everything but “here comes the airplane, zoooom!” to get him for God’s sake to eat like an adult. Therefore nagging bitches, et cetera.

Don’t get me wrong: I think it’s totally legit to say “no, I don’t want to try that, and also stop bothering me about it already,” and if you put it flat out like that, then your friend is an asshole for pushing it. But are all asshole behaviors part of rape culture? Hardly, or else I get raped in traffic all the fucking time.

Sometimes an ass is just an ass.
