Andrew EisenOkay, kindly quote where she says someone shouldn't write something they feel is relevant to their body of work or where she suggests that it shouldn't have been written in the first place.07/01/2015 - 3:24pm
Goth_SkunkClearly, up to that point, she was. By my interpretation. Which is why I stopped reading.07/01/2015 - 3:23pm
Andrew EisenGreat but that's clearly not what she's saying.07/01/2015 - 3:22pm
Goth_Skunkat all? Nonsense, and for more despicable than whatever was poorly written in the first place.07/01/2015 - 3:21pm
Goth_SkunkI find the mere suggestion that someone shouldn't write something they feel is relevant to their body of work disgusting. If they did a poor job of that writing, it's fine to say something critical then, but to suggest it should never have been written07/01/2015 - 3:20pm
Andrew EisenIf you read the article up to that point, it's clear what she's saying is most people suck at writing rape scenes so most people probably shouldn't.07/01/2015 - 3:20pm
Matthew Wilsonto a lesser exant twilight.07/01/2015 - 3:20pm
Matthew Wilsonevery time discussions like this are had, I feel like im entering a ivory tower. the reason I say that is becouse it does not match with with what seems to be really popular by females. some examples are 50 shades, girl with the dragon tattoo, aand07/01/2015 - 3:20pm
Andrew EisenYes, and that doesn't say rape scenes are bad and people shouldn't write them.07/01/2015 - 3:18pm
Goth_SkunkI don't think I am. Once again, here is the quote from the article, verbatim: "In short, anyone can write a rape scene—but should they? Chances are, the answer is no."07/01/2015 - 3:16pm
Andrew EisenYou're misinterpreting the argument it's putting forward.07/01/2015 - 3:13pm
Goth_SkunkThere's no point in reading the article further. Unless it's a poorly written article, it will focus on trying to justify the argument it put forward. As I believe there is no justification, there is no reason for me to continue reading.07/01/2015 - 3:05pm
Andrew EisenEspecially if you refuse to listen to what they have to say. As an example, had you read the article (and you're under no obligation to do so, mind), you'd learn that she isn't saying a scene is bad simply because it depicts or describes rape.07/01/2015 - 3:02pm
Goth_SkunkI never said their position was less valid than mine. I'm just saying they will never convince me away from my stance, so there's no point in trying.07/01/2015 - 2:57pm
Matthew Wilson now only if we could get videos as html 5 instead of crappy flash.07/01/2015 - 2:55pm
james_fudgeSee what i'm saying?07/01/2015 - 2:48pm
james_fudgeI also am not a PoC and don't understand how a word with hundreds of years of history behind it affects them.07/01/2015 - 2:48pm
james_fudgeWe should also stop pretending that we understand someone else's perspective. I am not a woman nor a rape survivor and I have no idea how this stuff affects them.07/01/2015 - 2:48pm
james_fudgeThe trick is - can people talk about these things without losing their cool?07/01/2015 - 2:46pm
james_fudgetheir position is just as valid as yours07/01/2015 - 2:46pm
