What rape is.

What rape is.

Rape:

The crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse.

… or…

unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent because of mental illness, mental deficiency, intoxication, unconsciousness, or deception

… or…

the unlawful compelling of a woman through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse.

… or…

sexual intercourse with a woman by a man without her consent and chiefly by force or deception

Therefore, Mr. Jakob Free:

When you post something like this asking feminists to “chill out” and then admit to being a rapist, don’t expect much sympathy. Just… don’t.

Sincerely,
V.E.

12 Moments 09: #1

This entry is part of 12 Moments in Anime 2009.

#1 is L and Light chained together. I jumped on the Death Note (wiki) bandwagon this summer (or late spring—I forget when it was exactly—but nevertheless: late, whenever it was). In my classic taste, I was thrilled to see Light and L chained together for a significant portion of the early part of the series. I can see the purpose in the story of chaining them together (L, after all, thought it was the only way), but really… it just makes for some serious fodder for yaoi fanfiction and fanart. I mean, after chaining them together in canon, how can you not slash them? Just sayin’.
