|Warnings Wank In Bandom arsenicjade
, a popular bandom writer, posts a story to bandombigbang
. It contains a scene that could be taken as dub-con, and a few people comment, politely asking her to add a warning. She explains equally politely that she didn't mean the scene to read as dub-con, but promptly adds a warning for consent issues. So far, so good, right?( Warnings wank, in which we learn that triggers are serious business, unless they're the same as red velvet cake, vicious attacks by telephone cords, or the color orange. Also, frathouse rape via speculum. )ETA: lcsbanana posts a round-up of links to all of the worst statements

listing all of the common fallacious arguments smacked down during Racefail that have now been used during this argument, even by the people smacking them down during Racefail.( Longer drama under the cut )ETA 2: aukestrel

.ETA 3: zvi_likes_tv
has frozen all comments on her post, and has made two further posts, both of them with comments turned off:
Rape victims don't suffer a lack of privilege as they are not an involuntary group: "The use of the word "privilege" with the categories "reader" and "writer" doesn't make sense. Privilege is talking about systemic advantages accorded to one group of people over another group of people, where membership in either group is either involuntary, a source of a stable sense of identity, e.g. race, religion, gender, health status, age, class."
The second post effectively shuts down all further discussion: "You do not have my permission to comment on any of my dreamwidth entries on these issues, you do not have permission to private message me on these issues, you do not have permission to e-mail me on these issues, you do not have permission to speak to me in chat about these issues, you do not have permission to talk me on the phone or in person about these issues, you do not have permission to send me physical mail about these issues."cynatnite
has deleted all of her comments to impertinence
; some of them have been archived in lcsbanana
's post, but if you have screencaps, link them.
|Perez Hilton: now starring in "House of WHUT."
I know this is all over the mainstream media, but damn it, some of it's funny
Except for the bits that really, really aren't.
Perez Hilton, gossip-purveyor and celebrity-dirt-disher to the internet, got punched in the face in Toronto after the Much Music Video Awards.
That's assault, and what do you do when someone assaults you? You contact the police. (
And, of course, it's completely rational to think the police follow you on Twitter. )
