First, I appreciate your thoughts and your time. I think we just inherently disagree on a few points and that is okay. I think expectations are not privilege.
Please consider that the tone of my piece has a lot to do with emotion. I do everything that I can to come at things logically. But, many women, myself included, are tried. We’re tired of trying to explain our damn feelings because they are so frequently dismissed as invalid.
I have found that many of the angry comments I have gotten have been derived of one thing. Lack of ability to empathize and and say, “I didn’t think about it that way.” What I get a shit ton of is, “NO. NO. NO. You’re stupid and wrong.” I’m not saying all. I am saying most.
And lastly, I don’t think there is anything in my rhetoric that could possibly justify a man thinking rape is a privilege. Full stop.
