Pointers to meta I think is worth reading.

This unfunny business writeup about awful behavior from a single BNF in SPN fandom has sort of exploded all over the place in fandom this week. If you haven't read it yet, as some of my flistians might not have, you might want to just so you have the context of the conversation. For further reading about the rape culture issue, I recommend "A Read more... )

Damn you, for coercing me into wasting hours reading about stupid instead of working on Giles porn!

Though now I know that those times I was felt-up on public transport, it was actually my fault, for not specifically and clearly explaining to the poor gentlemen in question that I did not consent to them touching my breasts.

Guess I should track them down and apologise for punching one, and pushing the other down the bus stairs. I was completely in the wrong.

(Except, neither informed me of an unwillingness to be punched or pushed down stairs, so does that mean they consented? Now I'm confused.)

Obviously if they'd wished not to be punched, they haven't clearly and specifically explained to you that they didn't consent to being punched. So they consented. DUH.

This wank has everything, I feel. It has drunken public misbehavior from a BNF that we can stare at as if watching a train wreck. It has the BNF melting down and attempting to strong-arm an anon meme comm into compliance, which rebounds on her in a spectacular example of the Streisand Effect. It has A+ prime old-fashioned wank from the bystander who wants to tell you how her paganism says the complainers were doing it wrong.

Grandstanding of empty lawyer threats, two drinks.

Thread in which one poster announces twice or more that this is absolutely the last thing she'll say before she never posts again, one drink.

Vast majority of kerfuffle built on hearsay and inaccurate conflation of totally different events, finish the bottle.
