"Stealthing" is Rape

[TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE, RAPE CULTURE, RAPE APOLOGIA]

I shouldn't have to say this, but the practice that rapists and rape apologists call "stealthing" is rape. Taking off a condom and having sex with someone who only agreed to have sex with a condom is rape. Period. Full stop. End of story. And the fact that this is ever called something other than rape and that there is some kind of so-called "movement" of men who are secretly taking off their condoms in the middle of sex with their partners is rape culture.

And if I see one more fucking article by one more fucking so-called "news" outlet calling it "stealthing" rather than calling it was it is, which is rape, I'm going to lose my mind. And if I see one more article by one more fucking so called "news" outlet that gives a platform to a rapist calling himself a "stealther" and only calling it "sexual assault" rather than having the police come in to the interview room and haul him away for being a serial rapist I am going to make the editors wish either they or I was dead.

We already know why rapists rape. You don't need to interview another rapist and give him a platform as though he has some kind of point or his position has any kind of legitimacy rather than being 100% rape, period, full stop, end of story. The real story should be about a journalist who drew out a serial rapist with the promise of an interview and then had the police arrest him after taping the confession and took a plague of humanity off the streets and threw him into prison for life.

Or the story should be about a rape culture-upholding piece of shit "journalist" who was should be ostracized from society for not only giving a platform to a rapist, but letting that rapist go free to rape more people and traumatize more people and devastate more lives.

Way to go, Tom Tilley. You fucking rape-enabling piece of fucking shit.
