It was an extremely dangerous situation, which is what I was getting at-or at least trying to- in this piece. It wasn’t until I was home and talking to my family and friends about it on FB that I really started understanding the depth of it all and decided to follow-up with the establishment about what happened. But I have been in such extreme situations so much in life that I am on autopilot. I know exactly what to do to stay alive and protect those around me. It just doesn’t affect me emotionally anymore because it’s so common.
If I may ask, can you tell me more about how you feel about the philosophy of rape culture? It’s an extremely loaded term so I understand how it could give someone pause. My daily existence is filled with sexual deviance/violence on some level so I need the perspectives of others who may have a different worldview.
