It’s early in the morning but I refuse to let this trash sit in our inbox all day.
First and foremost the mod who talked about Mink does not hate him, but even if she did, her points are still valid.
You are absolutely delusional if you think that real life does not influence the media we consume. You are equally delusional (or just plain ignorant) if you believe that media also doesn’t have the power to perpetuate harmful ideas and beliefs in society. You are also delusional if you think media is not one of the most mainstream and powerful contributor to rape culture. Do you know what rape culture is?
Obviously not because you would not have said something so laughably ignorant.
If you like Mink, fine. If you think the rape scenes are sexy, fine. If he’s your favorite, fine. Please, enjoy yourself. But don’t you dare tell us, or anyone else, that they should “get over” them because Mink and Aoba are not real. Don’t you dare tell us that rape culture is not an extremely serious concern that affects literally billions of people every day of their lives. Don’t you dare make excuses for that absolutely shitty and disgusting behavior, because we are not having it.
Did you seriously just tell us to deal with rape? And that it doesn’t matter because it wasn’t real? As if characters in video games are not meant to be reflections of real life emotions and situations people go through? As if the emotional toil the people go through and the affect of that toil on the people watching it are suddenly “not real” because the characters aren’t?
Seriously, read over what you just said, then go lay down and take a nap. Then, never speak about something you don’t understand ever again. Or us.
Actually, yeah, don’t you or anyone else who agrees with you ever speak to us again.
