Rape is part of our culture. It’s normalized to the point where men who are otherwise decent guys will rape and not even think that it’s wrong. And that’s what terrifies me.
-Jessica Valenti, as quoted by a Voice For Men

Maybe it's a bit of a radical notion, but I don't consider someone who's committed rape without a qualm to be a "decent guy". Or, for that matter, girl.

“Masculinity has become so intertwined with violence that it becomes invisible.”
- Linda Ann Scacco and Molly Turro, same

This is a textbook "dragon in my garage" argument. "You can't tell masculinity is the same as violence! That's because you can only see the violence! But I can see it because I've taken the red pill!"

There may be panting involved at this point. Possibly on their part, possibly as you run away.
