Here are all of things that Judith says immediately before Harley has sex with her in his private plane: "No." “Stop it." “I don’t want to." “Get off of me." Judith does not want to have sex with Harley. (There’s another layer of nuance here—one reason Judith doesn’t want to have sex with Harley is that she’s deeply invested in Perry’s beloved gender roles. But the reason for her “no” is irrelevant. Her spiritual weakness betrays her, Harley can tell she wants it, and she’s punished for that weakness.)

He does not stop. He just tries harder. He knows what she really wants, no matter what her mouth and body are saying. She never says yes. He says, smugly, “Now you can say you resisted.” He has sex with her anyway. This is a rape scene. But, in Perry’s universe, Harley is right. She did secretly want it. And that’s the real problem.”

This idea—that men know what women really want, that resistance can be fucked out of us (or consent fucked into us)—is DEEPLY NOT OKAY. It’s not okay to telegraph this to young men or young women or victims of sexual violence or potential perpetrators of sexual violence or lawmakers or anyone. It’s a paradigm that I was hoping had died out with Pepe LePew. It is frightening.”

-Lindy West, Jezebel


I think it’s VERY important that everyone, ladies and gentleman, understands that this is a rape scene. This isn’t breaking down defenses or playing hard to get. Coercing, manipulating, threatening, intimidating, or even guilt tripping someone saying no into sex is rape. Doesn’t matter if they don’t scream or kick or cry. Doesn’t matter if they are your boyfriend, husband, wife, fuck buddy, crush, or stranger.

How To Not Be Rapey 

Date Rape

I never called it rape: The Ms. Report on recognizing, fighting, and surviving date and acquaintance rape

WOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW OK FUCK YOU TYLER PERRY

You just said “she gave in”, so technically this isn’t rape, this is her giving into temptation; if she would have pushed him away or slapped him, he probably would have stopped, but she didn’t, she gave in, which is considered legal consent. Saying “this is a rape scene” after, just before, clearly stating that it isn’t, just makes you look like a retard. So please just shut up.

Hmm. Well, she actually does push him away. I just didn’t include that gif in my set because I’m only allowed 10. I also didn’t include a few extra nos and stops.

So yeah. She fought him off. And he still didn’t stop. So you can stop victim blaming now.

The real (and downright scary) issue is that you suggest that her “no” isn’t enough. Or forget suggest, you downright say that she has to fight him off physically in order to voice her “true” consent. And if she doesn’t fight and “gives in” to his refusal to stop attempting to have sex with her against her will, then it’s okay.

Rape culture on full display.

I was just having this argument with my homeboy two weeks ago. I told him this was a rape scene. And this was one of a million reasons why this movie was thrash.

***For colored girls who have been called “thicker than a Snickers” and other dumbass colloquialisms when being called “attractive” was not enuf.
I do not enjoy being referred to as “thicker than a Snickers” and if you think I’m being nitpicky feel free to go and tell that to someone who cares. I do not enjoy being reduced down to the rack near the cash register at Walgreens. The years I spent learning to love myself and the messages I have received from other young women as thanks for having inspired them are more valuable than f*cking nougat. My body is not a piñata favor. My confidence is not confection.
I know what you’re thinking. I’m like Raven Baxter or Dionne Warwick or something. I know you’re thinking “I mean, it’s just something people say! Chill! It’s no big deal!” It’s only “no big deal” because you haven’t realized how…how…stupid it actually is! Not only is it offensive to compare a woman’s body to something that will probably kill you over time, it doesn’t even make any sense! Thicker than a Snickers??? Whet? In my expert opinion, Snickers bars are relatively average in size in comparison to other candy bars. They aren’t necessarily “thick”. Not even in consistency as compared to competitors. So wtf are you saying to me? In that case I’m thicker than a Milky Way too. And don’t you dare say it’s because “thicker” and “snicker” rhyme. Two words rhyming doesn’t justify them being put together to describe a human being. In that case, all of you loud ass n*ggas are officially louder than some chowder. Do you see how f*cking stupid that is? I dare you to put your ear to your next bowl of New England clam and make that sh*t make sense. I hope you scald your ear off.
I’m really proud of what I’m building for myself and I am proud of every woman (or man, I’m completely gender and identity friendly) who took a look at an image of me or anyone else and at least considered wearing that pair of shorts she told herself she has too much cellulite to wear. Body positivity is real and it’s hard. And I expect to be sexualized frequently along the way (a whole ‘nother topic), but for the love of God, stop stuffing this progress into a chocolatey outer shell! If you see an attractive women, tell her she’s attractive. Tell her she’s beautiful. Tell her she’s gotdamn fine. But do not tell her she’s 27g of sugar. Appreciate her life a little more than what truncating her down to food suggests. Her confidence is not confection. Stop trying to melt it in your mouth.
