I’m going to come clean- the reason that I haven’t written recently is because life has been a little…strange…this past few weeks. I’m not going to divulge why and I’m also not going to divulge the number of times that I have started writing and not…
So apparently people have been interpreting this picture in a different way than what I expected.
The original intent of this picture was to say that someone’s arousal (In this case a male bodied person) does not mean that they have consented to sex. This was supposed to acknowledge that men are raped, to combat people saying ‘how could she rape him, he clearly wanted it, he had an erection”
Others have seen this as saying that just because you are aroused by someone does not give you permission to have sex with them. I agree with this. This is a good sentiment. If this is what you got out of this picture, that’s fine. This was just an unexpected interpretation.
