Labor Day Holiday Message

This is for the heterosexual male trolls and rape apologists/deniers who rant about what I'm doing in comments or on MRA sites.

If you drink this holiday weekend, don't rape. And yes, if she says, "no" and you ignore that word because some girls/women mean "yes" when they say "no" your action will still be rape. Consent isn't about what some girls/women want it is about what a particular girl/woman actually wants and actually welcomes in that moment. Notice I didn't write that consent is about what you assume a particular girl/woman wants. There's a difference and understanding the difference might save you from what you would loudly and mournfully declare to be a false accusation.

If you don't drink this holiday weekend, still don't rape. No excuses.

I won't define genuine consent in great detail for you here. If you follow this blog you know the definition. But I will give you a hint, if you believe she might later, "suffer from morning after regret" as you like to call it and tell someone (possibly the police) at some point that what you did was a sex crime -- don't do it.

Grumble and swear about how feminists are ruining everything for men like you, but don't cross that line.
