...I said no, very freakin' clearly. I made my lack of consent plain. I went limp. Trust me. There was no way that could have been mistaken for consensual sex.shadesong explains very, very clearly that, congratulations, Marvel Comics, a character in Spider-Man raped another character. Something Spider-Man writer Fred Van Lente claims didn't quite happen. (Yes, he used the mild word "quite." Talking about something as damaging and awful as rape.)
But according to Fred Van Lente, that wasn't rape. Huh. Thanks, Fred - I guess you know more than the Las Vegas Police Department, more than the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, more than our whole justice system.
I will say this all nice and bold.Thank you for saying this, shadesong.
Force has nothing to do with it. It's still rape.
