Rape as a weapon

rape being used as a weapon of war is so heart wrenching. it was used during the partition of india, the french used it in algeria, serbians used it against bosnian women, it’s being used right now in syria and what’s so heart breaking is the fact that women choose to commit suicide because of the possibility of being raped. humanity never learns, we really have failed.

So much of the Silent Hill franchise is about the sexualization and hatred of women, with the male monsters (that act as guides for the main characters) mutilating and raping female monsters as an expression of the male character’s mindset.

How about an adult woman as the main character for once? A woman who has gone though a lot of hardship in her life and has a deep, subconscious hatred of men. She doesn’t want to acknowledge these feelings however because she has a young son, and the thought that he will one day be a man too makes her uncomfortable, so she has to pretend she has no problem with men, both for his and her own sake.

That is why her “Pyramidhead” is a towering female monster with scars on her abdomen like she ripped a baby out once. She attacks male monsters along the way, mutilates their crotches, rapes them with their own phallic weapons, and strangles them with her metal loop. She never attacks the main character unless the main character attacks her, and even appears to clear the way for her on a few occasions, guiding her through the game.

It sounds harsh, but just think about what happens in the Silent Hill games.

Edit: I can’t keep repeating myself. If you you want to correct me on something you think I got wrong about the franchise, read the answers I’ve already given in the comments. I have indeed done my research and isn’t just basing this on the second game.

Over 50 years ago, Malcolm X said “If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” An awful lot of people still haven’t understood this essential lesson. 

Saddam’s soldiers throwing babies out of the incubators; Iraqi weapons of mass destruction ready to strike against Britain in 45 minutes; Libyan soldiers using rape as a weapon of war; Gaddafi using black mercenaries to perpetrate a massacre in Benghazi; Assad using chemical weapons in pursuit of a sectarian anti-Sunni agenda… These slick “infomercials” - the fruit of a close collaboration between news agencies, PR firms and phoney Twitter personalities - have been used routinely as a means of hiding the reality of imperialist wars; as a means of painting the US and its allies as the representatives of justice and peace, and the anti-imperialist states as brutal, murderous, anti-popular, undemocratic. It’s Goebbels on steroids; stop falling for it.

“My father was a fascist. He was trained to be a terrorist in Mussolini’s army. He was anti-everybody. The Irish were ‘micks,’ black people were ‘niggers,’ and Jewish people were ‘kikes.’ His main weapon was pain. He raped me, locked me in closets, beat me with broom handles. He sent me to the hospital many times. He’d threaten to blow my brains out in the middle of the street. I absorbed a lot of his emotional energy. Sometimes his voice still comes out of me. When I’m really angry, and cussing myself out, I sound just like him. It’s him inside me, speaking to me. But I didn’t become him. My grandfather saved me. My grandmother was a fascist like my father. She counted her rosary beads and condemned the world, but my grandfather was a simple man. He lived with us. He always told me: ‘Your father is a nut.’ He hugged me and kissed me. I swung between two extremes: the love of my grandfather and the hate of my father. My grandfather knew how to love. My father couldn’t love because he was too filled with terror. He didn’t have the tools to love. Once when I was fifteen, I walked over to my father and gave him a big hug. He kept his arms stiff by his side. I said ‘I love you Dad,’ and his body started trembling. There was a terrified child inside of him. He wanted to love. And he wanted to be loved. He just didn’t know how.”

News from Aleppo

ِA letter written by one of the sisters in Aleppo right now to the scholars of the ummah and to the leaders of the opposition:

“I am one of the woman in Aleppo who will soon be raped in just moments..there are no more weapons or men that can stand between us and the animals who are about to come called the ‘country’s army’.

I don’t want anything from you..I don’t even want your supplication…as I am still able to speak I think my supplication is going to be more truthful than what you say!

I am committing suicide..and I don’t care if you say I am in Hell-Fire!

I am committing suicide because i did not remain firm in my deceased father’s home for all these years because his heart burned when he saw all those who left Aleppo..

I am committing suicide not due to no reason but because I do not want several members of the Assad Regime to savor raping me while just yesterday they were afraid to say the word 'Aleppo’.

I am committing suicide because the Day of Resurrection has taken place in Aleppo and I don’t think Hell-Fire will be worse than this..

I am committing suicide and I know all of you will unite on my entering of Hell-Fire and that will be the only thing that you will unite upon: the suicide of a woman. Not your mother or sister or wife…but a woman you are not concerned about.

I will conclude by saying that your fatawa (verdicts) have become meaningless to me so save it for yourself and your family..

I am committing suicide..

And when you read this know that I have died pure despite everyone.”

Amusing Gargoyles Idea That I Wanna Inflict On Everyone

Mordred – the incestuous bastard of Arthur and Morgan, the Doom of Camalot, a Bastard Bastard if ever there was one – as a foil for Demona.


“Just to establish: Arthur tried to kill me first when I was an infant on the say-so of the wizard who helped Uther Pendragon rape Igraine.  Second, I was raised specifically by my mother to be a weapon against Arthur.  I had all the reasons in the world to hate him with every fiber of my being, and oh how I did.


“And you know what?  I GOT my revenge, for my mother and for every child Arthur killed in his hunt for me, for the sins of his father passed on, for all if it.  All that Arthur Pendragon built, he lost, and off to Avalon he went.  I should have died.  I didn’t.  The last gift Mother ever gave me.  I’ll never see out of this eye again, but I’ve learned to adjust.


“Now… perhaps I could have clung to that anger… I could have let it eat me up from the inside out… but why?  I did what I wanted to do, and there’s this great big world out there.  Even after a thousand years the world STILL manages to surprise me.  Hell, I may never like Arthur, but I’m not even mad at him anymore.  Time really can heal all wounds.”


Mordred spends most of his time just bumming around the world enjoying himself.  He even finds a certain amount of amusement in the thought that, in destroying the Actual Camelot, he helped to turn it into a Shining Ideal that is so much more than it ever actually was.

@archemedes but like…The similarities we share…Are they coincidences ? Like I read an article-ish type thing about chimps and how males just rape and abuse the females and how young males play with weapon like toys and young females play with dolls and none of it is socialized, it’s just what they do….And…I need to know there’s no correlation…;_;

Hello!! My name is Nikki, and it’s super nice to meet you. This is my first time really doing commissions but I hope y’all can bear with me! Basically, I’m doing commissions because I’m in a bit of a financial pinch unfortunately.

If you’re interested, let me know either here or at my email (this is not my paypal email!) flutterdashfan@gmail.com. Thank you very much for looking, below is some more info and examples/prices are under the cut! Signal boosts are appreciated more than you know. Thank you :’)

- I won’t draw
NSFW for clients under the age of 18, underage characters or animals in sexual situations, offensive/bigoted content, realistic styles, complex armor or weapons, mecha, scat, vore, self harm, rape, gore or anything else I wouldn’t be comfortable drawing! Don’t be worried about asking for almost anything else though, I’m pretty open minded.

RAPE.

I agree… rape is not right.. no matter what age or gender or race you are. Rape is Rape.  I am not sure how laws are around the world but in America if you are over the age of 18 and have sex with a person under the age of 18 unless you are no more then 4 years apart by age it would be called rape. … I hope you are not under the impression ‘age is just a number’ when it comes to things like this. I am not sure where you live but rape is a serious matter. TO everyone maybe reading this post, this is some examples of rape :  Rape is sex while someone is unconscious. Rape is sex while someone is impaired. Rape is women having sex with men against their will. Rape is forced oral sex. Rape is forced sex with no weapon present. Rape is unwanted sex without physical resistance.Rape is unwanted sex between a husband and wife. Rape is unwanted or forced sex from someone you used to or are currently dating. Rape is a teacher sleeping with a student. Rape is any sex that you don’t want. Rape is Rape. Again I am not sure what the laws are in your country but in America rape is taken very serious here. We don’t fuck around when we talk about it. Women and men can be raped. Rape is not funny and there are age limits. It does not matter what age you are.. 13 year old boys can rape a 14 year old girl. There is no exception.

Using women like [Rosa] Parks to highlight male leaders makes the graphic rape scene in Birth of a Nation seem like another effort to justify male vengeance and retributive violence — as if women are simply things men fight over — instead of identifying rape as a political weapon used to terrorize individuals and communities. Worse, it makes the black women who were victims of interracial rape and sexual terror invisible in the long struggle for freedom and human dignity.

Everyone talking about blacks are savages meanwhile your U.S. Military is somewhere bombing black and brown people for oil and resources. Killing masses of men, women, and children. Yet you have the nerve to condemn your own people? Pleaseeee white Jesus inform them of the savagery their nation is taking part in. You think throwing rocks at murderous cops is bad? How about bombing entire communities, patrolling someone else’s land with weapons as if you own it, raping masses of women, the list goes on and it’s happening now but guess what FOX and CNN ain’t reporting the true NEANDERTHAL behavior. Imma let y'all continue to crazy about your own people like want you too though

Nigger

I only ever dropped the “n”
bomb once, and it was a bomb.

A grenade, launched fearful
from lips stuttering through
spokes of a bicycle
that could not go faster.

To children. I said it to
children. As a weapon–

because they were bigger
though I was older.

Because they pressed with
black eyes and black hands

and black, black hearts.

They said “rape”–out loud
in the sun. And I dropped
the only weapon I had.

It scattered the boys
like ashes, and I ran.
