Manslation: I don’t want to be faced with the reality of rape culture. Victims should be silent because my comfort is a higher priority than their recovery or access to resources, both of which are well-known to require openness about a victim’s trauma. It upsets me that victims are beginning to be aware that their rape is not their fault and are thereby in a position to accuse their rapists rather than withdrawing into a world of personal shame and self-doubt.
Well. That’s disgusting.
