if you've been raped three times, either youre a horrible judge of character..Having sex when you dont want to and calling it rape.. Or lying. They openly emphasize their repeated victimhood as if makes their words credible. Nobody supports rape or sexual violence yet they act as though it's a social norm when its not. I'll also add, those who preach strongly against something are often the best at it themselves. Liars often accuse others of lying. Racists often accuse others of racism and finally; sexism. Seems to me there is a culture of hate against men right now. Even if you have valid criticisms against a certain group, if you are speaking out against whatever social justice trend is in now; youre out of line. Now everyone go walk on eggshells and be careful not to upset anyone with your opinion while they shove theirs down your throat.

Annoying music backtrack is louder than the narrative. How can anyone hear or focus on what they are talking about?
