This show will never be unfunny
We all have that one friend.
I am a staunch believer of the second amendment. It is my serious belief that everyone in the world has an inherent right to defend themselves against death, or serious bodily harm. Often, a firearm is the most efficient (sometimes the only realistic) way to do that.
I ask a question: a person wakes up to finding themselves being sexually violated. There is a sexual act being committed with their body they did not consent to (they COULD not consent to). That person cannot effectively fight back due to bindings placed on them, but can reach pockets, their clothes, etc. Theoretically, they can reach their gun. If the victim grabs their firearm and shoots the rapist, this is a clear case of self defense correct?
I ask this question because when I was 20, this happened to me. I was the victim of a female on male rape. I knew my attacker, and was on very good terms with her (had even been sexually involved in the past). She would not listen to me when I told her to stop. She would not get off me. At this point, i was not a gun owner. I had no way to defend myself. I had to sit there and let it happen.
In the following weeks and months I sought help. The people I reached out to ALL ignored me. They told me if I didn’t want it I could have fought her off. I was bigger, after all (ignoring the handcuffs). I could have called the cops (I did, nothing was done). They told me I had fucked her before, she probably just really liked it and I should feel complimented, not attacked. I banged a hot girl, what’s my complaint?
I was left to deal with the emotional trauma alone. I was left to deal with the self doubt and self hatred and all that alone. I was left to wonder if I could have done more.
I do not consider myself a men’s rights activist. I also do not consider myself a feminist. I believe both genders, in different subjects, are treated unfairly. I advocate for both to be treated exactly the same. But I ask, in this situation would I have gotten equal treatment? If this were to happen again in the same way and I had to shoot my attacker, how would that go down for me?
How would a nude male, holding a gun, with a female corpse with HIS DNA in her, be seen? Be treated by the law?
It terrifies me to think that if this were to happen, my options are basically be a rape victim again or be tried for murder- or at best assault if I fought without a firearm (assuming I was able).
The answer is obviously scream incoherently, but in rage. Did you read the interview with Ben Foster, since he’s playing Medivh?
For those of you who don’t know, I write a lot of custom RPG’s (pen and paper games usually.) One i was working on about a year ago was a Sci-Fi title called “VOID.” I’m really excited about it, because I only gave up on it since I hit a roadblock with how leveling and classes was working and it became too complicated in game.
I started on it from the ground up, keeping the universe (Plot twist: HUMANS are the galaxy conquering scourge that are physically stronger than every other race, and are FAR more warlike.) but redoing the systems based around Dark Heresy’s d100 setup (Fuck you, Dark Heresy had the best d100 system ever).
I haven’t felt this excite in awhile.
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING YOUR GUN TO THE GROCERY STORE
how does america even function like it sounds like a video game or something. grand theft freedom.
Tell that to criminals and see how far that gets you
I don’t need to bring my gun to a grocery store? I’m sorry how many murders have taken place at our local walmarts and in the parking lots? How many car jackings, armed robberies and assaults?
Work a few years in public safety and you’ll see your local grocery store is not safe at all.
Brought my gun to the grocery store today. Bought lots of deliciousness.
Haters stay mad.
