My friend and I are perhaps more internet savvy than most… or at the very least, we just read a lot online. So perhaps it’s not surprising that we were the first in our circle of acquaintances to break the news about the Kenny Klein scandal, and now this most recent Christian Day bullshit. But apparently we’re also the only people who take this shit seriously.
”both parties were at each other’s throats” Did we even read the same exchange? A little directness and snark on her part does not equate with being at someone’s throat.
Agh yes, I have been told many times that I was just “Being too mean.” to Mr. Day and therefore deserved to be rape-snarked at. But you know what? That human garbage bin not only outed my name on facebook, putting me back on the radar for my stalker, but *he was pissed that I was not kissing his ass for essentially forgiving me for having friends in a facebook group he didn’t like, which is WHY HE FUCKING REPORTED ME NAME IN THE FIRST PLACE.*
He was expecting ass kissing from me. He did not get it. The rape threat WAS HIS REACTION to not getting his ass kissed.
I think they’re accusing you of that because you’re a woman, I believe there’s unconscious sexism at work. If you were male, I swear they probably wouldn’t have cared about your behavior and not have turned this in to “Both Sides” type of argument.
And I agree with you about 200%.
The fact that I am both a woman, and woman who dared to “Make waves, start trouble.” with a BNP are both being used against me as actual character flaws, people have even told me I was just “Being Emotional.”
Yes. When Facebook made me scan my actual drivers license to get my account back, and then I saw this leering toad basically going “AAHAHAHA! Good one right? I totes forgive you for making me out your name!” in my PMs… I might have gotten ever so slightly emotional, as I was just dealing with the shock of having the life of my children, and my own life put back in danger after quite a few years of safety.
And for the record, I am NOT SORRY for putting this out for the whole world to see, even though Im no Virgin Mary figure. I shouldn’t HAVE to be a spotless wonder for what he did to be wrong. They will not shame me into silence, no matter how long and loud they scream at me. This will NEVER GO AWAY.
I am reblogging this because 1) amorellamoon's own words deserve to be heard always and 2) in hopes of clarifying my position since this thread does not contain my response to butterypoundcake.
Amorella, my blog post’s intention was to come to your defense and the defense of other victims. I aimed to acknowledge your *own words* from the Reddit thread regarding the issue that many people were pointing out your anger and “less than politeness.” My blog post states my position that regardless of your anger or how your words were interpreted, you did NOT deserve what he did to you or the way he responded toward your (justified) anger over the doxxing. The idea that expressing anger over a transgression makes someone (namely women or other minorities) “deserve” rape threats or other vitriol from an aggressor is, quite frankly, bullshit. I see no reason to paint you as a wilting flower, as if only women who respond meekly deserve our sympathy and help. That only feeds the problem.
You said you what you had to, you didn’t accept his apology, and that’s fine. How he responded to that was not fine… and I laid out in my blog exactly how he should have handled that. Which is why I refuse to acknowledge his disgusting existence.
Did anyone actually read the blog in full or do they just enjoy grabbing one line and then talk out of their ass about it without regarding the context of said article? Oh.. wait.. that’s right. This is fucking tumblr! Let’s add attacking the person trying to defend the victim. Fucking brilliant. All that’s going on here is one tumblr blogger misrepresenting an entire article based off of one line focused on a subjective interpretation of what it implies to say that a person is “at someone’s throat.” Way to miss the fucking point.
