cryinoutloud: Man, if I'd lived through World War II and seen all the men go away and get killed, and then it was over, and they came back, you bet your ass they can kiss me. I'd be out in the streets jumping up and down and waiting for it.

I don't mean like--dead men. Zombies. I should have worded that differently.

Big Man On Campus: [ image 400x300]

5-to-1 that ten years from now, feminists will be calling this rape.

Well of course. He's on top, which already shows the Patriarchy is in full control. He's exposing her nether regions, too, putting her in a vulnerable position and objectifying her further. And note the rows of armed men behind them, enforcing the norms of the rape culture in which we all exist and live and breathe daily.

Smackledorfer: JesusJuice: Skullduggery: Call me frigid, call me whatever you like. I don't care what the circumstances are, some guy grabbing me on the street like that and kissing me would make me feel extremely uncomfortable/unsafe/and just a wee bit violated. (Assuming the photo wasn't staged, but also in general.)

I don't agree with the author in regard to the severity of the offense, but my body is my own and no one else is entitled to it.

Get over yourself. If we win a world war and a sailor(for some unknowabke reason) decides to kiss you, you let him because frankly, he IS entitled.

What if the sailor is the same sex as you?
What if he has herpes?

Just curious how entitled he is. Tongue? Groping?

Is there a window in which he is entitled and then it stops? How long is it?

Alright, how about: "Following the cessation of hostilities for any conflict in which >250,000 military personnel lost their lives, military service members who were part of said conflict may kiss, using no more than 2 inches of tongue, any one individual they so choose for up to 24 hours after the conflict's conclusion or they rotate back to their home country. Kiss entitlements are revoked in all cases wherein the recipient of the kiss is potentially endangered (ie the service member has herpes). The touching non-genital areas over the clothes during these kisses is permitted."

That seems fair

Also, to the people saying "she didn't consent".

I'm not gonna say she did, but I do want to ask you this question:

How do you intend sexual relations to take place?
In a robotic manner where you ask for credentials upon reaching each proverbial gate (think bases)?
Because there's nothing more of a mood killer than asking questions when you're making up or about to have sex.

Imagine two people are passionately kissing. They caress each other. Her dick is hard. Her nipples are like dice. The body language of each other screams sex.
Should the guy have to ask her if she wants to be penetrated? Or wait until she actually says "fark me"?

Now, I'm not saying you should penetrate every woman you see without asking. But I'm a person who can understand nuances and context. I don't know about you, but I can. But our species communicates in ways other than words.

Some of you remind me of that alien race in Mass Effect (the Elcor) that had to explicitly state their intention and mood with every line of conversation because other species had problems understanding their non-verbal communication.

"Genuine query. What can I do for you this day?"
"Sarcastic remark. That's not how I remember it."

Here's a video that explains it.

Genevieve Marie: doglover: Just because your dime story romance novels paint that picture, where's your hard evidence than men could just waltz around doing whatever to whomever? Oh wait, you have none because there isn't any.

You do realize marital rape wasn't illegal in every state until the 1990s and that there were almost no domestic violence shelters or legal protections for victims until feminists in the 1960s and 1970s organized on it.

so his argument is there doesn't appear to be evidence that men could walk up to random strangers and stick their dicks in them even in the 1940's and you come back with the argument that he is obviously unaware that perpetrators of rape back then were protected as long as they were married to the victim? I know you spent most of your time in the sociology department with the rest of the folks that couldn't hack actual science, but surely even you can do better than this.

WhippingBoy: GAT_00: Modern feminists really need to stop helping.

The above statement (which I wholeheartedly agree with) sums up the modern feminist movement quite nicely.

Modern feminists are a lot like Christians... they sit back and let the most batshiat insane people they can find represent their cause, then wonder why they have such a major PR problem.

fluffy2097: feffer: QFT. I'm kind of surprised by some of the women here commenting that the blog writer is a feminazi, not to mention the numerous people calling her a whore for no apparent reason. If you look at the picture the nurse does not look like she's enjoying it. Her fist is balled up and at her side, not around him. He's hanging on to her too tight.

Kisses are not always sexual they can be used to express joy and non sexual love.

/do you kiss your mother with that mindset? ಠ_ಠ

Assault is totally cool if you do it out of joy!

When female teachers suffer the same legal fates as male teachers when they fark their students, you have a right to biatch, feminazi.

Until then, enjoy your special protections, and if someone grabs you and kisses you to celebrate the fact they they no longer run the risk of a fiery death at the hands of a foreign power, STFU and be happy for the sonofabiatch. Maybe even kiss the poor farker back.
