that is so false! anyone can get raped! rapists don't care about how pretty a woman is, but how vulnerable they are. rapists don't want to put up a fight, because they're cowards. i'm not trying to scare people by saying "everyone can get raped, you will, too!" but merely to say that no one's immune to it, especially based on their looks or how they dress.
People take these comments way to seriously. It's annoying how some get into the fact that she was saying she wanted to be raped. Or that she can't even get a rapist to have sex with her. Whatever the case may be, the comment doesn't need to be factual and say that rape is about power and not sex and blah blah blah. While this would make a very good thesis, it makes a horrible comment. Most comments should consist of: hahaha, FYL, you're screwed, I'm sorry; something to that effect. But this is just my opinion of course and people will do as they please and feel they need to prove their point because "they are always right".
#40 - I agree with everything you said except 'rapists want to put up a fight.' I understand that a number do, and that is in fact what they're looking for. Or maybe I'm getting rapists confused with serial killers. Meh. There's probably some overlap. Oh, and OP - Sounds to me like your brother was just trying to help you out. I wouldn't take that personally.
I actually said "rapists DON'T want to put up a fight..." but no worries. honest mistake. And the reason people take shit seriously is maybe because we actually have hearts? everyone else not caring about issues like this is what causes them to continue to be issues in our world. Yea making a comment on FML isn't going to change the world, but maybe it can correct some of the ignorance you seem to have :-P
All I meant to convey was my opinion about how people get so angry over the stupidest of things, especially on here. Sorry if I hurt your feelings. And I would appreciate you not calling me ignorant considering you have no clue who I am or what I have been through. All you are doing is proving my point about how people feel that they need to feel superior to others and make sure they're never wrong. By the way, this is just a joke site and things are meant to be taken with a grain of salt. People don't need to be over-thinking things when all the OP is trying to do is tell a funny story.
some of the FML's i've read have been about people getting dumped or cheated on in pretty nasty ways. I don't think they consider that a joke. and i didn't mean to say you personally were ignorant, but just some of the people who make stupid comments, the type of comments that lead people to react strongly. there's a fine line between making a joke and being offensive and insulting.
Yes, that is true. Sometimes the subjects in question are a bit harsh. But I don't think the OP always wants thing to be taken so seriously; otherwise they wouldn't post on a site entitled FMyLife. I do believe that there is a time and a place to discuss such serious topics, but I do not believe that place is on this website.
How come everyone thinks all rapists are men? I know most are but the women that do never ever get charged for sexual assult or anything, it's basically against the law for a female to get charge for that. Many situations men end up in get them charged for sexual assult, yet women come out clean in the same situation.
Rape is not about sexual gratification, but power and degradation. Attractiveness has nothing to do with it.
At least your brother stood up for you?
