This is my first and last post about this. I didn’t want to get into this, but I saw this tweet and here are my two cents.
First, I’m pissed at this girl. I don’t know her, I don’t judge her, but she was rude with Adam and I can’t stand this kind of behavior. RESPECT PEOPLE. Then, the rape thing, AGAIN. And I literally cannot with this anymore. The last straw.
WHERE THE HELL DID THEY SEE RAPE JOKES FOR GOD’S SAKE ??
First, some people clearly need to buy a dictionary :
1. An indirect or subtle, usually derogatory implication in expression; an insinuation.
in·nu·en·do n. pl. in·nu·en·does
rapen.1. The crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse.
WHEN DOES HOOK FORCE EMMA TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM ? Oh, that’s right. NEVER. “Rape joke” would mean that the guy basically makes jokes about raping her. Let’s see.
- “When I jab you with my sword you’ll feel it” : this was definitely an innuendo, but no, Hook was not saying “I’m gonna rape you girl and you’d better like it”. Because even if it was an innuendo, he was talking about his actual sword.
- “Everything else is still intact” : oh yeah he’s so willing to rape Emma.
- “Is there another attachment you’d prefer ?” : Emma, hide ! He’s gonna rape you !
Then, dearies, stating that Hook makes rape jokes or is a rapist or wants to rape Emma is DENYING WHO HE IS AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF HIS CHARACTER.
Hook loves a challenge. He wouldn’t rape a woman because 1) He’s a gentleman despite it all and 2) HE WOULD LIKE HER TO SURRENDER, TO WANT IT. HE WOULD NOT SEE ANY INTEREST IN RAPING A WOMAN, IN FORCING HER TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM PRECISELY BECAUSE HE LIKES A CHALLENGE. Yes he can be kind of gross and “stubborn”, but it does not mean that he would be willing to rape !!! And what about Regina ? Didn’t she rape Graham ? DURING YEARS AND YEARS ? People need to stop being hypocrite.
And seriously when does he objectify women ? The guy is still fighting for the woman he lost 300 YEARS AGO. HE WANTS TO AVENGE HIS LOVE. HOW DOES THIS MAKE HIM A MISOGYNIST OR A RAPIST ?
To conlcude, the people who keeping stating that
- Need a dictionary (urgent)
- Need to watch the show with (better) glasses
- Need to open up their ears
- Need to see what is to be seen and stop being in denial.
Not only are they ridiculous, but they are highly disrespectful towards the creators and writers (and indirectly even towards Colin). And towards the people who are actual victims of rape, sexism, misogyny. It’s incredibly cruel to use this argument against Hook for this reason.
So a bit of advice : THINK TWICE BEFORE WRITING THIS KIND OF STUFF.
