I am about to head off to the first Script Development meeting for November’s Action On The Side project, but would like to officially announce the completion of ‘Dead Letter‘. Now onto entering it into film festivals, submitting to IMDb, and getting the film out there
There were unfortunately severe delays with post-production. However, these things are always learning opportunities. Crew will…
Thus, the logic of the feminist argument to “Teach men not to rape” is revealed.
Yes because it’s such a radical notion to expect rapists to control themselves.
Uh, we do tell thieves not to rob, though. We actually spend a lot of energy teaching kids that stealing is wrong. We keep trying to teach them it’s wrong through their teens and adult years.
And when someone gets robbed? Cops don’t ask them if their front door was locked. They don’t ask them if they invited the thief into their house and maybe said the thief was free to take things before changing their mind the next day. And this is true even though sometimes people do get robbed by folks they invite in under false pretenses.
Cops and lawyers and judges don’t work together to make people who get robbed feel like shit for not installing extra security systems or putting bars on their windows. They don’t use people’s former history of inviting neighbors in and letting them borrow stuff to argue that they had no right to expect someone to respect their property. The media doesn’t talk about how the thief’s promising life was ruined by their victim’s decision to prosecute.
Your metaphor is bad and you should feel bad.
"Movies can be anything. They can be escape or they can be confrontation. It’s an incredibly malleable art form, which takes the best of every other art form — writing, music, performance, visual imagery. It’s such a complete art at it’s best. In terms of being on film sets, what I love about it is for anywhere between 20 and 260 days a band of complete strangers will come together and form a family, and will bring something beautiful and ordered out of that chaos." - Daniel Radcliffe, What I Love About Movies Vol. 1

Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.
