o k a y,
I saw this post on Instagram like, yesterday, in the comments section of one of those update posts of the stories I read (you know, ‘Chapter 3 up!’).
To give a little context, this is a mafia-based story. I’ve changed the names of some of the characters mentioned because I don’t want to give the author away - while I wouldn’t expect anyone on here to go witchhunting, the internet can be ruthless.
Some people in the comments section were having a little argument about something in the story, the MC’s father not wanting her to get in to the mafia buisness because he doesn’t want her to get hurt/because she’s a girl.
Someone commented that they understand her father’s wishes, as it’s easier to hurt girls (in terms of sexual assault). And after a little back and forth (some arguing), someone posted -
“Well, I agree with her (OP), if someone kidnapped his son, they would torture or kill him but if they kidnapped (MC) they could do a lot worse things to her just like they did to (CHARACTER) for example… That’s why girls are weaknesses in their world…”
I SERIOUSLY disagree with this. I know this person is talking about sexual assault, and in terms of that, men CAN be hurt in that way. To say this, I think, is a HUGE insult to men who are survivors of assault.
… anyways. i just had to say this, somewhere. thanks for reading my small rant,
