What exactly do these people expect me to say in return? It makes me want to vomit. These were two different guys within the last week. Not to mention that "rape" is a gaming term, and how some guys were making "rape jokes" at my roommate's party the other day. If this isn't evidence for a misogynistic/rape culture, I don't know what is.
Unfortunately this is not limited to men, not limited to young people, etc. It makes me ill. And trying to explain why it is offensive can be like pounding your head against a wall.
When I grow up, I wanna be a Jiujitsu Turtle!
