At the end of the day, it really is a question of power: who has the power to end the debate? To walk away? To say, “I’m done talking about it, and I can go on with my rhetoric in a ‘business as usual’ kind of response?”

All right. Which one of you beautiful Avengers fans in this world made this.

I think a lot of people in general are desensitized to it. That’s the bigger issue. We see it thrown into our media so often, it becomes “no big deal” to many, and that’s scary. Rape is a big deal. Consider the effect the scene in Game of Thrones might have in a world already throwing around phrases like “legitimate rape” or “rape-rape.” People try to add these qualifiers or make excuses for why something isn’t rape, and that’s exactly what’s happening in response to this episode in particular. It’s why so many rapes go unreported or why many rapists don’t think they’re actually rapists. It’s a horrifying thought and it’s something being perpetuated in our entertainment unnecessarily and without caution.

stop dehumanizing trans people

I was looking at a post about how to behave around people who are trans and one of the bits of advice was “Don’t ask me about my genitals.” And it hit me yet again, good fucking grief, how much more dehumanizing can you get? I know this happens to trans folk all the time, but can you (if you’re cis, because if you’re trans you already know this) just sit there for a moment and think about that? Think about how inappropriate that is to ask someone you are not actually sleeping with what they’ve got in their pants? Imagine if you were sitting on the bus and the lady next to you asked if you had big labia. Or if your balls were hairy. Yet people seem to think questions of equivalent privacy-breach are okay to ask if they encounter someone who’s gender-nonconforming.

What kind of a society are we if people have to be told not to ask non-romantic-partners about their genitalia??

no one is required to give you their complete medical history and guess what, this is a medical issue and therefore none of your business.
